Yeah, when we speculated if the "third time would be the charm" for Kritika Online back when it launched, well, for the third time, we were obviously being sarcastic. The MMO has literally failed three times already, so color me confused when Valofe revealed today that they're planning to release the title for a fourth time...albeit without the P2E, crypto crap included in the initial version of the 3rd release.
To be honest, Valofe doesn't exactly have a glowing reputation for "saving" games gone by. Hop over to the company's games page and you'll see titles like C9 and Riders of Icarus. They've certainly had their day in the sun at times, but honestly, it's kind of amazing that they're still running at all. While we don't expect much more than Kritika being, well, online, Valofe is claiming they'll be making improvements like fatigue updates, numbers balancing, and a few reworks in some areas/dungeons.
We have no clue when Kritika: Zero is releasing besides the "soon" advertised in the trailer below.
