Ideas to improve the flow of the story
I have greatly enjoyed the game despite the bugs and I hope those will improve as they get identified. I do have a few suggestions that you might consider:
Add the option to include at least one AI companion when playing solo. This will provide context to the dialogue and make missions more organic, in my opinion and increase replay value and variability. Adjust the difficulty accordingly. This will also improve the gameplay mechanics by adding combos and team attacks while playing offline. The game is more fun when playing with the companions but I get thrown into missions that I have yet to unlock, because the other players are more advanced.
Add more cutscenes including the heroes, from what I have seen so far there is a lot of cutscenes for the villains but not the heroes.
Make the pre-order bonus weapons actual weapon sets, not just skins. Felt a bit ripped-off there, sorry to say.
Hope you consider these suggestions and implement them if they are not too disruptive to the game engine.
Thanks for a great game team. Looking forward to it getting even better!!!
