The Age of Gaming’s Big Overhaul is Here

Anthem and State of Decay 2 are two games that have recently announced their intentions to ‘overhaul’ themselves. No Man’s Sky was a high-profile game that last year saw a miraculous recovery after a shoddy release period. This new trend could end up becoming an industry-standard if more companies jump on the bandwagon. Lots of games come out with bugs. Sometimes games even come out and are nowhere near ‘finished’.
