SoulCalibur: Lost Swords is the greatest pile of garbage that we've had the displeasure of playing in quite some time, and we get through some trash here at Push Square Towers. The single player fighter was released as part of Bandai Namco's free-to-play push last year, and epitomised everything that's bad about the model. Good news, then: it's closing down.
Apparently, the title has been downloaded over two million times to date, which means that it's inflicted real misery on a sizeable number of gamers. The game will start to wind down at the end of this month, when AP Potions and Continue Tickets will no longer be sold. Then the release will be fully put out of its misery on 30th November.
"SoulCalibur: Lost Swords is less a case of Vol-do and more a case of Vol-don't," we wrote in our review. "This disastrous free-to-play experiment should have never been pulled from its scabbard, and will leave a scar on this once brilliant series. A drab campaign and awful loading times underline this colossal misstep in the stage of history."
In case you didn't get the memo, we really didn't like this game.
