Have been off the forum for quite a while now but this has dragged me back. My lad has just got the bundle. Awesome game play.

My Lad just uploaded his first vid with the Dredd skin. 12 mins of mayhem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJMAJLVmyAk

Didn't realise Dredd was involved with the 20th century dispute between Iceland the UK (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cod_Wars).

Re-reads, oh - Call of Duty Cold War...

Put it in context:

* Dredd has been around since 1977
* Since then there were some poor 8 and 16 bit games, with the last PC game in 2005
* Other than that there have only been mobile games
* Rebellion has owned the IP for 20 years and hasn't done anything with it for 15
* Rebellion is considered a large game developer, specifically Sniper Elite and Army of the Dead, with the resources to develop any 2000ad character game they want
* The best they can do with a 40 year old character is put a skin in another developers game

Really?  When I saw this in the newsletter all I thought was *facepalm*. 

This is the level of imagination Rebellion has towards the IP treasure trove that it has in the 2000ad character catalogue and from someone who has been waiting for a decent 2000ad character game since 1981.

I mean Dredd is underserved as an IP, but Rebellion are far from "large" in terms of developers. They don't have the budget to do an AAA game.

It's not, and never will be, a failure of imagination. I'm sure their devs are brimming with ideas. Rebellion obviously feels that pouring millions into a Dredd game is a risk they aren't willing to take when that money would better serve the IP elsewhere.

Is it about imagination or is it about growing awareness / harnessing the penetration potential of a well-established game?

In fact I would suggest that this is potentially an imaginative response.  Rebellion have taken the opportunity to leverage COD as advertising for the Tooth IP.  Who knows where this might lead?

I heard it takes a lot of points to grab the Dredd skin in there.

Potentially add in a Rogue, Johnny Alpha and any or all ABC warrior skins and the tooth world is expanded to a whole new range people. So a good move in my book.

Does that mean he’s worth having as a bad ass “super” skin?

Forget them, the original GTA was/is the perfect vehicle for Dredd since 1997, plus any open world that has come since.

And yet - nothing.

Dredd vs Death was a lacklustre corridor console game with shockingly embarrassing Red Bull adverts. 

And since then - nothing.

Best to do at least a derisory fact check before making unfounded statements - https://www.videogamer.com/news/sniper-elite-4-publisher-expects-200-000-day-one-sales-in-uk/

It took me 2 searches to get the right words then this was at the top on the third.

Paragraph 3 - “Sniper Elite 4 is triple-A,” said Williams.

Based on the flim unit that doesn't make 2000ad related films - nowhere or something totally unrelated at best.

Not for the bloke I've heard it from (technically speaking, read it from).

I don't think GTA setting is appropiate for Dredd. Such sandbox style I would put my money on Strontium Dog.

And what people have against Dredd vs Death game? It's not like corridors section took bulk of the game. If anything, it made gunning down zombies easier. Rebellion, if they are smart, they oughtta remaster the game, like they did for Rogue Trooper.

Otherwise, their (Rebellion) games are usually mediocre.

It works out as roughly £17.00 for the full skin pack. Luckily my lad had amassed enough in game points to purchase it without spending a bean on real money. You can also carry this over to War Zone. On the Topic of selling out blah blah. This is exposure to many who may never have heard of Dredd and curiosity will get some to indulge in the world we all love on this site. Can never be a bad thing.
