Skylanders Online Multiplayer [CLOSED]

#1 Posted: 12:37:19 12/05/2013 | Topic Creator
Does anyone think that Skylanders wil ever have an online multiplayer feature? I think both Battle Arenas and co-op online would be awesome! I also think it would be good if there was a way for leaderboards such as time trials where players could race each other to complete chapters and list their times with the Skylander they used to comlpete it.

Any thoughts?

While this is a good idea, and something I wouldn't mind having, I somehow doubt it'll happen. Just chalk it up to a lack of faith in Activision.

Well since PS4 and the next Xbox are meant to be heavily reliant on online connections, I think it would be a wasted opportunity if Activision don't implement online multiplayer in some form or another, maybe in Skylanders 4 (btw, Activision has a contract to make Skylanders 4 & 5 with a option for renewal in 2016, probably based on the success of the later games).

I wouldn't mind seeing a "smash brothers" type of online PVP. That would be pretty fun, likely attract a new market segment, and breath new life into existing iterations of Skylanders - IMO

The caviat would be, heavily restricted online chat. Its a kids game and it would be a shame if some foul mouthed people ruined the experience

disney infinity will have online 4player co-op etc.... so online gameplay will definitive happen with skylanders4..

what online mode will be available... most likely these...

2 player story online co-op
2 player arena survival online co-op
4 player co-op & vs battle mode online

Am I the only one irritated how when even 2 players are playing there's boundaries and limitations of space between the two characters that make it very annoying to play? The only way 4 players would work (imo) is networking. And if they do that---they may as well do everything else.

it will be a mess with 4 players in story mode, the levels to small etc. so it is more reasonable to make it 2 player co-op only in story mode. they will do it over the network online and the invisible rubber band between players will be gone... 4 player in arena/battle mode no problem smilie

it will be a big competition between disney infinity and skylanders coming. now that we have disney infinity the children internet safety will not be any excuse anymore. activision will be forced to make skylanders with online game play with the 4th skylanders game. if they don't less people will buy skylanders and there will be less money to earn. one thing we know is that bobby kotick loves money...

They can do a ton with online. Skystones, time trials (as previously mentioned on this thread), co-op, battles, and so much more.

And yes, battle leaderboards. That's the one thing I've been waiting for with this game.

This is such a good idea they should definitely make swap force online cause it brings more choices and gameplay, like battle mode pick wisely cause you dont know what the others are picking and would compete even better with infinity




not gonna happen sadly... the game is done so no time for online this late. but online is expected with skylanders4 that comes next year...

No offense to Wii owners (and perhaps Wii U owners if the same holds true), but let's hope that Activision drops Wii support with the next game after Swap Force. The whole reason we couldn't get any kind of glitch fixes or updates for additional features/content is due to the Wii being unable to accept/download game patches/updates. Activision decided to not put out anything of the nature since one of the three main consoles couldn't take part.

Part of the reason we've only seen the first four adventure packs is due to the fact that the games (SSA & Giants) had to be shipped complete. If actual patching were allowed (via disc included with an expansion pack or downloaded separately), Activision would be able to keep churning out additional content, including an update that would allow for online versus/co-op play.

I doubt we'll see this, but it would certainly be nice.

I expect none of the platforms will be removed anytime soon. Wii U's lackluster sales assumes Wii owners will be happy for years to come, but I do expect Wii to be phased out before PS3/X360 since they are basically a year ahead of them in terms of hardware lifecycle. I think all platforms are safe for Sky #4 but expect dropping Wii after that and PS3/Xbox after Sky #5...my wild guess.

If they don't add online for #4, I'll be dropping the series.

Xbox360 will last a bit longer. PS3, hard to say.
Good point about the Wii U.
Plus, a lot of older wii games, such as Metroid prime trilogy, are getting re-circulated, so Nintendo recognizes its Wii owners.

i tell you this the 2000 released ps2 was stopped support for in 2013(put still getting latest fifa game this year!)... also the 2006 released ps3 have the strongest line up of new games ever this year!(x360 nearly none)... and games will still be coming as usually up to 2017 for the ps3, sony have said so. after that expect games releases to dwindle but the ps3 will supported for many years after that... also the 2004 released psp handheld is still getting new games..

the 2000 released first xbox gen1 was stopped support in 2005... and dont expect the x360 be on the marked after 3 years from now...

sony is serious when it comes to supporting their old consoles... and always have been...

If Acti or VV drops the Wii, they're going to lose about 20% or 30% of their market, just saying.
Many, and I really mean many Portal Masters use the Wii, including me, and as you know, Europe is in economical crisis, so, no money to buy another console.

there is no reason why they cant do online play without chat in skylanders. Just group up with friends you know and play. Friends list could have chat and random can not. No harm no foul there for kids. Besides last I checked parents were the ones that should be watching what their children are doing and systems come with privacy stuff don't they?

The PS4 demo was cool, but since I can't do side by side comparisons I'm going to remain pessimistic. From what VV was saying, it was very minor visual enhancements. They did a lot of not answering the question directly from FGTV, so that's my conclusion.

Quote: Doomslicer

Not really. The big thing is 1080 which will make "some" difference but the current consoles is technically HD anyway at 720. It's all minor stuff like subtle ripple effects and possibly better depth effects.

I think ANY form of online gaming would greatly improve Skylanders. When they had Skylanders Universe it was really fun. Having anything like online multiplayer co-op or online player versus player battles in game would be just amazing. Unfortunately I'm not sure we will get anything better than the online mini games on their website.
