Gamers Slam New MMO from EVE Online Creator for Being Unfinished and Empty

The early access model has become a norm in the gaming industry, where players purchase incomplete titles with the hope that they will eventually be refined. However, every so often, a project launches so poorly that even a prepared audience is left baffled.

This is precisely what happened with Pax Dei, an MMO from one of the creators of EVE Online. The game premiered on June 18, and its rating has already plummeted to 52%. Initially, the medieval simulator was criticized mainly for its price (one edition costs $100 and includes many essential items for survival, like additional zones for building farms). However, the list of complaints has since grown to include various bugs, optimization issues, an empty world (there are no NPCs and there won’t be any), and poorly thought-out gameplay.

Pax Dei is led by Reynir Hardarson, one of the creators of EVE Online. His team has already responded to the criticisms and promised to address the issues.

In the USA, where gaming culture is robust, the reception of Pax Dei is particularly significant. American gamers are known for their high expectations and vocal feedback, which can greatly influence a game’s success and the developer’s reputation. The criticism Pax Dei faces highlights the broader challenges of the early access model and the high stakes involved in meeting player expectations.
