Another less popular Sony game has its online services yanked just a few months after launch.
For as great as Sony’s games often are, their strategy of how they handle their online functionality, especially for the less popular titles they puts out, is consistently horrible. Games get their online modes pulled within a few years (if you’re lucky- sometimes it can be just a few months!) after launch, leaving players with a lesser game than what they paid for.
The newest victim of this is Gravity Rush 2, which saw its online functionality be retired yesterday. As of today, you can’t play the game online. The good news here is that the main game story is still entirely playable, and all Trophies are unlockable still- but a very unique and fun part of the game has been rendered unplayable entirely. Gravity Rush 2, as a reminder, launched only a year and a half ago- Sony took down its servers within 18 months of its launch. It’s infuriating, especially since they ask players to pay for online now.
Gravity Rush 2 is still a pretty damn neat game, in spite of the servers going offline, and I encourage you to play it. It’s available only on PS4.
