I initially decided i would be unable to purchase this as there was no disk copy for pc and i thought my PS4 would melt (poor fella’s been having difficulties since i had DOOM on it.)
My brother convinced me to go for a ps4 copy. I got a PS4 copy. Thus far I’ve had no issues regarding the MT. It’s not being pushed in my face by missions or normal gameplay elements (though it is pushed hard in the pause menu, with their planned DLC and weekly MT “bargains”)
[Sidenote: it’s only in the landing section for the pause menu. It’s not in any other menus]
Gameplay seems fine. I’m told the legendary captains using in-game currency is about 1 in 25 (they cost 1500m which doesn’t take me long to farm) [“m” being Mirian, the in game currency. Might as well call em Shmeckels. You can destroy unused gear for large amounts of Shmeckels. I have 13,000 Shmeckels as of quitting tonight]
I am not even halfway through yet, as i do all the collectibles when i reach a new region before pushing down quests. If i find any issues by the end of the game i will be sure to let you know.
Miscellaneous section: there are some non-MT related bugs, nothing I’ve encountered that were game breaking. I got myself caught in a wall once, but fast traveled out. Minor annoyance, i had to kill a captain 6 times (and he was legendary, so i got 6 pieces of Dark Tribe legendary drops.)
Once i get to the end of the game (where i see most clickbait articles on the Internet that say “You need MT to beat the last mission?!”) I will assuredly update my opinion. So far I’m not expecting to need any MT whatsoever in the game, and am currently doubting i would even need any free MT for the final mission.
Online ranked is probably chock full of MT abusers safe in their castles with a ton of legendary warchiefs and overlords but eh. It’s ranked. Of course they’re going to ruin it. (All assumption-based btw, i have no PS+ available to check)
