White Knight Chronicles servers to shutter

Thursday, 21st March 2013 00:59 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A post on the PlayStation community forums advises that online play for White Knight Chronicles and its sequel will close on June 18. The first of the Level-5 PlayStation 3 RPGs released in 2010, and the second arrived in 2011, both trailing a Japanese release. They feature a sort of MMO-lite multiplayer component, which despite lengthy single-player storylines, were really the heart of both games. Neither exactly set critics on fire, though. As US and European players shared servers, this appears to be the end, so get after any last trophies you were chasing.

    This is pretty ridiculous. The game has only been out for`17 months. Epic fail on their part.

    That’s very poor form. Are the servers Sony or Level 5 hosted?

    Probably Sony. It was developed by Level 5 and Sony and published by Sony. Very rubbish. Obviously they think usage isn’t that high, but there was an online pass associated with at least WKCII and games should give more time if they are going to take that route. As a game it is entirely playable offline, but it shines a lot more online.

    @3 I’ve been reading about trophies that require online play, though, is it true?

    This is bad news, but. At least it is a game that’s playable offline, rather then others that would become useless disks when servers get shut down like this.
