Soulcalibur: Lost Swords, the free to play fighter from Namco Bandai, was recently launched on the PlayStation Network globally. Unfortunately only a handful of people can play the game right now in view of server issues faced by a majority of those who downloaded the game.
Posting on their official Facebook Page, Namco Bandai acknowledged the issues and stated that the solution requires more than one of the party involved in the development of the game. They are at the moment working with one of the game’s key partners to fix the issues and launch the game again as soon as possible. The post did not mention any details to the technical issues.
Soulcalibur: Lost Swords was set to launch on PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 this Tuesday. The game focuses on single-player but requires online connectivity for the key element of the game to work, namely; uploading custom created champions online for others to use which then earns the ‘lending’ player points to use in the game to further upgrade champion(s).
Shortly after launch, players complained about the game’s inability to connect to the game servers. Several of them received error messages and were sent back to the game’s menu. Whilst there were some players who were able to play the game without any issues, they are a handful compared to the ones who were unable to play.
