Spyro Reignited Trilogy’s launch is right around the corner now. However, there is a major flaw with the physical version of the title that will disappoint many fans and potential customers.
We now know that the Spyro Reignited disc only contains the first game, Spyro the Dragon. Users are required to download Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon in a day one update.
Although this will not be an issue for many players, this could prove to be a massive blow to those who have limited internet access. These gamers will be facing the issue of having to deal with lengthy downloads to be able to play two out of the three Spyro titles in the trilogy. Players without internet won’t be able to play these games at all, only leaving them with the option to play Spyro the Dragon.
Activision briefly explained the situation to PlayStation Lifestyle:
“As with most games today, downloading an update after purchase is quite common. The language on packaging and on the web is to let players know the requirements for Spyro Reignited Trilogy.”
Many are hoping for further explanation from Activision to detail the official reasoning behind their decision.
In the modern gaming industry, there are some situations where developers work on their products right up until the date of the title’s release. There’s a great deal of speculation that points towards this being the case for the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy.
The Spyro Reignited Trilogy for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is releasing next month on September 21st, 2018.
