While reaction has been extremely positive, Jaffe notes on his blog that some fans have been concerned by the limited number of characters in the game's campaign.
Worry not, however, as Jaffe's got words of reassurance:
"Please keep in mind this Twisted Metal single player and co-op will be more varied than ANY TM you've ever played," writes the God Of War creator, "We are NOT doing GTA style missions or vehicle escorts and such BUT we DO have mechanics laid on top of the core campaign deathmatch that adds to the play so you don't get bored. We also have more bosses than any TM game. We also have around 35-45 minutes of live action and- when it's done- super cool stories in the game (more than- I THINK- we've ever done). So while you may be disappointed by the fact that there are currently no plans for Marcus Kane or Bloody Mary or No Face, please know that the one player/campaign game you DO get is going to be the best one we've ever made."
Jaffe was also keen to point out that the team are actively discussing ways they can address fan's concerns:
"We hear you. We talked about it at breakfast today and discussed possible ways to address the concern. Can we make those adjustments to the game in the time we have left? Not sure, no idea. But for those who respectfully voiced your issue, it is appreciated, the development and publishing team is aware of your issue, and we are looking to see if there is anything we an do about it. No promises at all. But just so ya know, ya'll are being heard. And it's appreciated."
There are a few shots of Twisted Metal's live-action footage being shot through the link. It's all very exciting. Jaffe's constant communication with fans via Twitter and his blog have been equally refreshing since Twisted Metal was announced at E3 earlier in the year. There's a real air of honesty to this project, and a loving devotion from the Eat Sleep Play team to make sure fans are satisfied by the game. Personally, we're happy with the three-way campaign (it'll make it tighter in the long-run), but it would be nice to see other characters make a return. Perhaps they could be DLC unlocks for a separate Deathmatch mode?
