Started the second campaign not in GP. It’s actually quite good. Different Engine entirely. Different game in fact. Looks good, plays great. Cheesy writing but heart on its sleeve. Basically it’s Great Value Wolfenstein with Quantum Break/Control elements. Not bad at all. At least the first bit.
Give it a shot with GP. And steer clear of the MP right now.
I’m not interested in the multiplayer but I’m very excited for the campaign. It looks exactly like a Remedy game, so I’m not sure why people are questioning Remedy’s involvement? The assets are right out of Control and they even use some of the familiar Remedy actors. As of right now the Gamepass download of Operation Catalyst is still unavailable so it will probably be until tomorrow that most of us get to play it. One thing I love about Gamepass is that I don’t need to depend on reviews to know if it’s good or not because I can just play the game myself. It’s Call of Duty Campaign meets Control graphics. If that doesn’t appeal to you then move on, the game probably isn’t meant for you anyway.
It’s an issue. Support is working on it. This is what they say:
We’re aware that users may be unable to acquire the CrossfireX campaign content as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription, and we’re working to resolve. Please keep an eye here or on our status page for updates.
As someone who plays a lot of FPShooters I actually like it so far. No gamebreaking bugs seen (@Staffy) and it looks quite nice actually. Sound design not to bad either. This not going to revolutionize the gaming industry, but its a good playing shooter. Story is a bit generic, but I don’t play shooters for the story tbh. Cannot tell you anything on length or stuff like that, but its ticking all the boxes I look for in a shooter.
I’ve just uninstalled it. And tried to reinstall the Game Pass version but they changed the picture of the game. It doesn’t say Operation Catalyst now, so it’s only the MP now. It seems they are still busy on fixing it.
Yeah I just caved and bought the 2nd campaign. It’s only $9 so it’s actually pretty cheap considering the 1st campaign is included in Gamepass. The download for crossfirex-operation-spectre is 25.22 GB on Series X for those curious.
