Beastly Afterthought of Disintegration Closed Beta
What’s going on fellow gamers? Do you ever wonder what would happen if the human race was on the brink of extinction? Would you trust in science into putting your brain into a shell of yourself? A Rayonne would be the future of humanity making you into a sentient droid. In the world of Disintegration, you might have no choice in the matter. Either integrate or be destroyed because it seems that evolution is too slow for some. Welcome once again as we tackle the closed beta of Disintegration on the Xbox One console. We have a video ready for you to check out our quick thoughts but figured this is would go into things to be clear.
Disintegration Afterthought Video:
As is stated you will have seven crews to choose from each have their own special attributes and abilities. I picked “The Business” because they looked cool and urban and I got the Chappie vibe from them. You can customize colors and even pendants that you unlock with in-game money from your matches. The designs of each warrior are quite fun and show that even in a robotic society the personality of the humans’ sticks. Why not though? You are put into a somewhat immortal body and pretty much looks generic, you would put your own spin on it. There are these freaky ones that look like clowns and there is hope they are in the game’s main story somewhere.
With the customization out of the way, we can go straight into combat. Playing a version of Zone Control in some many different FPS titles in different ways has tainted my feelings towards this mode. Yes it is a classic and it would not be fair to say it is outdated, it feels more as if it doesn’t work well here. It would be expected to have more of a fast pace setting for PVP modes. Retreviel is pretty cool which is a new take on capture the flag and it is nice seeing the effect when you bring a core to the rockets.
There wasn’t a way to change weaponry which one would assume that each crew has their own special weapon loadout in which during the matches you can switch between crews after you get destroyed. Not a fan of that too much, frankly speaking, I would not mind building up my crews weaponry and skills as I go along. There wasn’t anything like that either just cosmetic upgrades only. This might help with teams being nerfed maybe, but I still believe someone would claim unfairness somehow.
As far as controlling the units it was quite meh. In my squad, I had 2 A.I. units, one Sniper and one Berserker. The ground units to seem to have stronger artillery than us on gravcycles. Also, our secondary weaponry in my case a shotgun takes way to long to reload like a ridiculous amount of time. I get that you don’t want us to spam that weapon, however, it is not that powerful.
You do not have to worry about the ammo it seems as your weapons are energy-based and so are your ground units. Everything seems to be on a cool-down, so when your minions use their special abilities they have a cooldown. If they are destroyed there is a bit of a wait that puts you at a disadvantage.
I would say that I am more intrigued in the storyline with this one more than the multiplayer. This seems like it will be on some Insurgent level storyline with the main protagonist not liking how things are going. Losing your humanity is not something you want to give up so easily. As of right not, I am just going to wait and I hope you all enjoyed this preview. Please check back for more news and updates as we wait for the release of Disintegration coming soon. – Beast Out –
