The fall of Babylonlive role play Kotaku writer Ethan Gach named the PlayStation 5 “new worst game“, has been rendered so worthless that some GameStops are offering physical copies for free.

It’s not just because the game “controls like Jell-O and combat is often a mess, while everything in between ranges from unpolished to incomplete”, as has been said. writes Ethan, although that is certainly part of it. It is also that on September 13, the publisher Square Enix announced it would stop servicing the game on February 27, 2023, just under a year since the game was released, and that retailers no longer sell digital or physical copies of the game.

After February 27, the game will once again be sucked into the void. All his game data and his Hanging Garden Player Site will be erased from history. This is terrible news for the game. simultaneous single playerbut for anyone wanting to preserve it, wonky combat and all, you might want to head to your local GameStop.

Although he didn’t have worked for everyonesome people online say they received free copies of The fall of Babylon after asking the employees for them. A Twitter user posted photos from the game tagged for “destroyed field”, so it’s not implausible that some GameStop employees would rather the game end its life in the warmth of your dirty hands, than mangled in the trash.

I haven’t seen anyone try to get a copy from a retailer other than GameStop, but The fall of Babylon is pulled from the shelves everywhere, so it might be worth calling to ask. (Or not, because it’s The fall of Babylon -Fact-checking Ed). I’ll go to GameStop later to ask if I can use a copy of The fall of Babylon as a plate during my lunch break.
