Abandoned Atomic Heart multiplayer feature
Mundfish’s upcoming FPS RPG Atomic Heart is due out next month, but what about its multiplayer capability?
Atomic Heart immerses players in a world where humans and robots live in harmony. But after a tragic accident in which super-powered robots overpowered humans, the utopian world suddenly became much more dangerous.
Players must use a variety of weapons and combat skills, which they must upgrade and perfect in order to fight the new deadly menace plaguing the world. Previously, Mundfish had developed a PVP mode for Atomic Heart. Highlighted by PC Gamer, the game’s website even listed the feature, saying:
“When you’re ready to challenge other players, a secret railroad will take you to a special region designated for PvP battles.”
But as we get closer to the Atomic Hearts release date of February 21st, is a multiplayer PVP feature still on the table?
As published by Wccftech in a Q&A with Game Director Robert Bagratuni, Atomic Heart no longer seems to offer multiplayer.
Bagratuni said, “The entire Atomic Heart experience will be a single-player experience, focused on the story and the gameplay.”
“There are no multiplayer add-ons planned at this time.”
Atomic Heart has been in development for quite some time, so it’s not surprising that plans have changed over time. Speaking about the game’s long development, Bagratuni said: “Our unwanted lag can be attributed to youth, ambition, innovation and new technologies! During the development process we made the difficult decision to abandon some ideas, even very big ones, like multiplayer. It was painful to have to make decisions like that, but it was the right decision.”
Atomic Heart will be released on February 21, 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC.
