Wander struggles with bugs, crashes

    
42

If you’re thinking of picking up Wander to enjoy an exploration-heavy, non-combat MMO, you may want to consider waiting until some of its rougher patches are smoothed out.

At least, this is the report from some players and outlets who are testifying to multiple crashes, severe clipping issues, and game-breaking bugs. “It’s perhaps the worst game to launch on the PS4,” The Sixth Axis lamented. “When the game wasn’t crashing, my character was running into invisible walls, or clipping through walls, or floating above the ground, or moonwalking, or any of a number of other wonky behaviors,” blog Dragonchasers said.

On the other hand, some of our Massively OP staff have played the game without encountering the worst of these problems, so your experience may vary. Caveat emptor!

Veldan CrowingOne I’ve been playing since launch and other than clipping through rocks, have only encountered 2 real problems.  One was getting stuck between rocks in a falling motion so I couldn’t transform to get out and the other was randomly being unable to draw once which fixed with a relog.

Dystopiq I have been having quite a bit of fun in the game and have not experienced any crashes or problems like the hose complaining about the PS4 version.  Yes, there is clipping in rocks, but otherwise it’s good to go. Maybe the take-away here is just to not put games out on PS4 and stick with PC =D

I just read that the Wander team has only 3 people that work on the game full time, of which only 1 is a programmer. They had a second programmer who worked on the game parttime, but he had more important things to do and left :D This should explain why the game is in a rather… imperfect state.

karmamule CrowingOne I play a lot on all systems (mostly PC) and no rocky launch of a pc game is comparable to this mess at the PS4. It’s crashing nonstantly (you can barely play ten minutes straight), the “draw the word” controls are a joke, there’s clipping, texture popping, and so on. I’m a gamer by heart, I don’t cry Jehova just about every little bug, but this is ridiciolous. For the first time in my long gamer life I consider to ask for a refund.

Wait, didn’t a whole bunch of us basically give this tip back in the non-combat story?  Oh well…

CrowingOne Veldan White-knighting much? Veldan is simply stating a fact, that he hasn’t played the game since he bought it because of all the issues. 
Are we all supposed to simply accept that a product is flawed and endure its shortcomings that most of the time eat away at the joys of actually playing the game?
