Since the release on May 21, Amazon's online shooter Crucible has recorded only small numbers of players, which continue to decline. The Crucible developers are now revealing what the future of the game looks like.

Crucible is probably in Duden next to "lousy game start, the" as a picture book example: The online shooter from Amazon has been playable since May 21, but hardly arouses enthusiasm among players. On average, user reviews on Steam are a poor 44 percent, while ingame not even romp about 1,000 more at the same time. For comparison: Even the hero shooter Battleborn, which has since been discontinued could attract more players at the same point. So there is a need for action here, which the developers have also recognized. They have therefore published a roadmap via Trello and revealed in a development update on Steam what's going to change.

Just one player mode for Crucible

The developers take the players' feedback to heart and therefore concentrate their efforts on getting the game in better shape before the first season begins. The online shooter is currently still in the "pre-season". This should remain so until the developers and players are satisfied.

Part of the newly focused development is the elimination of two game modes: The MOBA mode "heart of the swarms" remains, while the battle royale game from Alphajäger and the harvester command mode will soon no longer be playable. The heart of the swarms gets the full attention of the studio so that it is really fun.
