SoulWorker 2? Project Soul / Soul of Destiny Announced
If it wasn’t already apparent from the plethora of SoulWorker videos I’ve done over the last several years… I love this game.
I’ve been creating content for SoulWorker since it was available in Korea and Japan. Long before Gameforge brought over their failed version.
Yet this… this is not the future I wanted for the franchise. This is the last thing the game needed.
After watching the trailer above.. honestly, it looked disappointing. Like, really, really disappointing. From a longtime SoulWorker player…. man. So, Project Soul is currently only available within China. Therefore, it’s also only available in Chinese at present.
However, from what little information has been revealed about the game, apparently it’s more or less what we’d expect from a mobile SoulWorker game: It’s.. well, SoulWorker. The same characters – just.. only half of them. The same setting. The same type of gameplay.
I mean the game itself looked good, don’t get me wrong. Visually, aesthetically, the game looks like a great successor to the SoulWorker intellectual property, but… this is such a low-effort Chinese knock-off.
Why is it that we’re at a point in the MMO genre where developers see MMOs that have had a modicum of success, and opt to take the IP, absolutely destroy the heart and soul of the game, and turn it into some cheap-ass churn ‘n burn mobile game.
It’s actually disgusting.
SoulWorker, sure, isn’t a unique MMO. It has the same repetitious gameplay found in Vindictus, in PSO2, in Dungeon Fighter Online. But it’s a gorgeous Anime title with some ridiculously good combat and social aspects.
This? Project Soul or Soul of Destiny? It seems like a heartless remake in an attempt to milk more mobile players out of their money with minimal effort. Which seems to be the case with many mobile MMOs these days.
Not necessarily mobile GAMES as a whole. But mobile MMOs. Mobile MMOs are some of the lowest quality, lowest effort games on the platform, and this looks to be no exception.
I genuinely cannot believe these types of games keep being developed. And that players continue to support them.
I mean, if they didn’t.. it wouldn’t be happening, right?
