Ok, I know there are different treads for OP7 issues and feedback, but I feel like this is a pretty major bug that’s preventing some people from actually playing the game and earning the Relic set, so I think it deserve it’s own tread.
It seems the Atrium map shares some files with the Campaign, meaning if you don’t have the Campaign installed(either from the install manager or the SP_ACT files on Steam) then, as soon as you boot into it, the game will simply fail to properly load it and return you to the main menu with a “You have been kicked from the game” message.
So until this issue is fixed, you need to re-install the Campaign if you want to play on Atrium.
Just curious; why do people even bother uninstalling parts of the game? Same with “ready to play” when games aren’t fully installed yet. Nothing good ever comes out of that. And it’s not like 100GB is that much space, especially compared to another company who loves bloating their filesize to 200-400GB.
100 GB is rather a lot actually for someone like me who is too cheap to replace a functioning, if small, HDD. You are correct though that “ready to play” should be renamed “ready to fail” and that with current development practices it’s not very surprising when parts of a game breaks after a seemingly unrelated bit is removed.
Not everyone has a huge hard drive attached to their console, and many areas are now capping internet data usage. Installing the full game could limit your data usage for the month, or eat up very valuable space.
Plus, the Series X requires Series X games to run on their faster SSD, and a spare card for that costs over $200. Thinking long term, if someone doesn’t need to play the campaign again, uninstalling it while keeping the other stuff is just smart.
With “ready to play”, I use that for fighting games. When MKX came out, my brother and I started just playing and learning characters while the rest of the game downloaded. Super useful, actually.
