Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

My optimism for the remake has faded because of this. 2 and 3 Reignited will become lost media because of this.

You'd think Acti would give out a full statement on this issue by now.

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

I agree with you that it's not substantial.  But it just felt like what Activision might call a 'statement'.  I wonder if TfB would be able to shed any light on it.  I would expect them to be way more transparent about it, assuming they are allowed.

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

I'm going to wait and see what exactly it means before worrying about it. If it's just a bit of code that unlocks 2 and 3, and they're already on the disk, that's fine with me.

Being able to play the game independently of someone else's network working or not is important to me, though. I like being able to play my old games on my old consoles. So if you have to connect to the internet any time you want to play it and/or it's not on the disk... that's pretty stupid.

As for the possibility that the games aren't done yet, it really wish they could just get back to pushing release dates back instead of always having to download a patch as soon as you buy it.

We're getting the digital version, so it won't affect us either way, but I wanted to have a physical copy at some point so I wouldn't have to worry about servers going down and stuff like that. hmm

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

I really thought they were going to delay the release.  Not because of this situation we're in, but because it's Activision and Activision always seems to push the release date for their non-FPS games.  It happened to Crash, so I expected Spyro RT to come out in 2019, even when it was announced for September earlier this Spring.  But the closer we got to the end of Summer I started realizing the release date might actually be achieved.

In other somewhat good news, someone on reddit and a few other places pointed out that the Crash N. Sane Trilogy had a second run of physical copies that coincided with the Switch and PC release, and all newer copies of the game have version 1.4 on the disc.  There are still a couple updates that are not on the disc, but it hints at the possibility that Spyro RT, if it gets shipped incomplete to begin with, might get a re-print next year that has an updated version of the game that includes bug fixes, quality of life features, and yes, full data of the three games that don't require an internet connection to complete.  While not being a fully acceptable alternative, I hope this puts people's worries down a little that a non-internet version of the game would not be available.

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

God bless RGT 85 thank goodness I watch his channel else I wouldn't have known.
Second favourite gaming channel after GameXPlain thank you man you, rock.

It's not exactly a good thing, but it's not completly bad ether From what I understand only Spyro the Dragon is on the disc, you must download Spyro Ripto's Rage, and Year of the dragon to get them. Shouldn't be too much trouble.

But for those that don't want to buy it I get it. Hopefully sales are still strong, and the game does well.

This is to all the people out there that, want this game, please but it if you want it. These are the original 3 Spyro games, remastered if you want, nostalgia, charm, and a fantastic game get if not. Well you've made the right choice ether way. All the best.

I'll see how this plays out for the Nintendo Switch Version, maybe I'll get it maybe not still going to enjoy the game in some way. We'll see. Also a Nintendo Switch version was never confirmed so that's not even set in stone at this, point.

Still liking forward to game.

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

This is seeming to me like a good reason to avoid pre-orders. When there's a possibility that they can announce something like this a month before, when most of the pre-orders have probably already come in, that tells me there are good reasons not to trust game companies with your money until you can know for sure you're going to getting what you expect.

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

I tend to agree that pre-orders are a bad practice for producers and consumers both.  I did it because I was confident that this title was something I wanted to invest my time in, and the deal for me wasn't going to be broken by some of the things others have.  My standards are pretty low, lol.  If they gender-swapped Spyro for the entire trilogy, I would still be ok with it.  I would think it would strange, but I wouldn't cancel my pre-order.  Most of the games I play the most are games I pre-ordered, that is to say, maybe one or two titles per year.  I went from playing a lot of games a little bit to playing few games a religious amount.

It's a good point, wouldn't pre-order unless you know you can, trust company.

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

I heard that all the games are on the disc (someone from Activision did say this I don't remember the name tbh. but  the source  is somewhere on Youtube I can confirm because that's where I heard it from with screenshots to back it up on the video.) there will just be an update patch for spyro 2 and 3. The reason why the box cover says download required is proballybecause that these games are unbeatable (may be lacking some levels that may need to be downloaded.) without the patch or if beatable they are really glitchy and unfinished. (I didn't want to say unplayable because I believe Activision can get this right as they did with the Crash Inssane Trilogy.)

Re: Spyro Reignited 2 and 3 is download only.

Could someone please advise me as to why people are saying its a bad thing for the games to be downloads? I have not owned a Playstation for at least 12 years, I had the PS2 and that was it so I do not understand any of the chat about downloads etc. I always buy my games in a physical copy (I have a Nintendo Wii and 3DS)
Please forgive my possibly unbelievable ignorance here! I was going to buy a PS4 console in order for me to get the new Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

I'd appreciate some advice on whether I should buy the game as soon as its released or if I should wait it out and see if it will be released as all 3 games on the CD's later on? Either way I still plan on getting the game but I'd like some help about why a downloaded game is possible a bad thing?

Oh and if I pay £29.99 for the Spyro Reignited in physical copy and then have to download games 2 and 3, will it cost me more money on top of that to download the extra content?

Thank you!
