Now that we know a little more about NEXT, I was wondering how many people are planning to start over with the new update.
The last time I started over was with the Foundation update, I regret it a little bit because of the sentimental value of having my original day one save, but I had my reasons back then, there’s nothing I can do about it now and I still have the screenshots.
To me the Foundation update really changed the way I play the game and I had the feeling that I needed to start over to really experience it. Pathfinder just added more stuff to what Foundation had brought and Hello Games stated on their website that you can experience all of Atlas Rises without having to start over, so I didn’t. So far, to me, the Foundation update really felt like the actual foundation for the other two updates. I really liked the original game, but now it feels a bit like a sort of early access and the Foundation update feels like the base game, if that makes sense.
NEXT seems like it might change the game the same way Foundation did, so I think I might start over when it comes out. This time around we can have multiple saves though, so I’ll just keep my old one. If they say you can get the full experience without starting over, like with Atlas Rises, I might just keep playing on my current save and play with a friend on a different one.
So what are your plans when NEXT comes out?
