Square Enix’s Left Alive Is “a Good, Solid Single-Player Game;” Has Limited Online Features

If you were wondering on whether Left Alive will be a mostly a single player experience, Director Toshifumi Nabeshima confirmed that it indeed is.

Nowadays, publishers often seem to feel that single-player games are less valuable, but apparently, Square Enix isn’t afraid to offer single-player experiences to its fans. The upcoming survival-action game Left Alive will be pretty much that.

At Gamescom, we asked Director Toshifumi Nabeshima whether there was any multiplayer, and he explained that the title is designed to be a solid single-player experience, even if there will be some limited online features.

“It’s very much designed to be a good solid single-player game. At its core, it’s a single-player experience from start to finish. Although there are some small online elements. It’s not a full versus or co-op mode. “

When I asked if Nabeshima-san was talking about leaderboards, he simply answered that more information will be revealed at a later time.
