Dead Star Servers to close November 1st

67 posts in this topic

The servers for Dead Star will be shut down in two weeks, leaving 42 of the 48 trophies unattainable.
 
It's probably already too late for most people considering the length of the game and the largely inactive servers, but get the platinum while you can, I guess.

It's pretty near 100% impossible unless you already had just about everything done. Takes over two weeks based on the majority of the plat times, if you're lucky. 

 

That's fucked, not even half a year up and only two weeks notice for server closer. Won't play a game from these devs again that has online.

Whaaat?! If I remember correctly they revealed this game only 12 months ago  :blink:. Why do they already have to close the servers now?

At least they're helping me shorten my backlog I suppose

This is a shame, I really enjoyed this game when it was active. To be fair to the development the game was pretty fun it just suffered from a lack of players once the next month of Ps+ rolled around.

For anyone wondering about the platinum it's roughly 100 hours if you can get in constant games but I imagine it's almost impossible to find a game, and probably too late to organise a boosting group.

Developers: Gamers are a fickle bunch. If you think you're going to create a game that depends on a large online base to survive, you're odds of being successful are 1,000,000 to 1. Just don't do it.

Oh wow, what a joke.

 

I never expected to actually make it to lvl 50 for the plat, but I do have a few miscellaneous trophies I didn't get around to. I'd better get on them ASAP.

 

Thanks for the heads up.

A shame. You can put your love into making a game, release it to the ether in the hopes enough people play it to make it worth the effort, even give it some good advertising by letting PS+ get a hold of it. Can't make people play it though; instead, "I wanna play GTA in cowboy hats again!". Online twin stick shooter was a gamble that didn't pan out.

Didn't expect it to die this fast. At least I won't have to worry about getting trophy for this one. I'm currently working on my back log start with some games from 2015 PS+ :P

 

How's the single player? If it's interesting I might try out a bit with a local account.

I was planning on starting the PS+ games from 2016 in December but so much for that.

 

Even if it's boostable now, to platinum an online multiplayer game in less than 2 weeks is impossible. Especially one that takes over 100 hours to Platinum.

 

Glad there's a trophy list delete feature now.

Don't even think there is any. You can do a the tutorial and that's about it.

Glad I skipped this one entirely when it was offered on plus; I didn't even add it to my download list. Games like this that are largely online based are just not my cup of tea especially when it's uncertain how long the servers will remain active because the online community just isn't there. It makes me feel like I need to rush just to avoid unobtainables.

I backlogged this game when it was PS+ free because it was FREE. Well in the beginning the game wasn't appealing to me and now servers are shutting down not even a year of its existence, this gives me a reason to never ever download it. This game will not be a lost at all. Screw the games with majority of trophies are online!

It's understandable that the game just didn't pan out, but pretty crappy of them to give 2 weeks notice on the servers.

 

Also a bad look for Sony. That's at least two games that have been offered on PS plus this year that have already lost online services (this plus Call of Juarez.)

Didn't see that one coming. Activity must have fell off hard once PS+ users finished checking it out. Must have been dead on Steam as well.

FYI, the Call of Juarez "shutdown" hasn't affected the game at all. Even the multiplayer trophies are still achievable. Still wish the PS+ offerings were a little better, though.

Wow, that's pathetic. It only came out in April! It was a fun game for a while, addictive, but too samey to keep most people playing for long. I doubt I would have tried to platinum it anyway, because the trophies are stupidly grindy, but it still sucks.

The dev just released a statement, if you want to update the OP:
 
“We are shutting down the game because, bluntly, the costs of operating the game now exceed its income,” Armature director of operations Jack Mathews told Kotaku over e-mail today. “This decision was not taken lightly internally, and was extremely sad to me personally. Armature put a lot of time, love and studio resources into both the game and the community, and we are extremely grateful to our community for their support in keeping this going as long as it could.”
