I’m in a bit of a panic. I bought Gravity Rush 2 on Saturday after finishing (and totally loving) Gravity Rush Remastered, but I’m in a race against time to play it before the servers shut down early on 19 July. The game will still be playable after that, but loads of features, like challenge races against other players, will be gone.
Trouble is, I’m four story missions in, and I haven’t even unlocked any of the online content yet. I only have a limited time to play, what with all the boring adult responsibilities I have, so there’s a good chance that by the end of tomorrow I might not even get a chance to sample Gravity Rush 2’s online offerings before they’re gone for good.
Eurogamer reported on Gravity Rush Central’s campaign to get Sony to cancel the server switch off. The group has put up a graph showing that more and more people have been playing the game over the past year.
Sony have made last-minute U-turns before, like when they cancelled the release of the creepy pick-up artist game Super Seducer just days before it went on sale. Here’s hoping they see sense and stave off the server shutdown, especially as loads more people are playing Gravity Rush 2 now. Head this way to see how you can join the campaign to save Gravity Rush 2.
