Got the game early. Krypt chests are filled with loads of different currencies and crafting materials. It's not great, really feels like mobile game type shenanigans.
There's only one hidden character and they're unlocked via story mode. It's the costumes, intros, and other cosmetics that are unfortunately rng based this time around.
It's really really bad. You buy a tower for a character for 25K the first time, 50K the second and so on. Beating it rewards you intros, fatalities, brutalities, classic outfits and voice lines. However, they say there are absurd difficulty spikes and it's a one attempt type of thing for the towers.
Towers of Time review
For the casuals, it is much, much worse
20% battles are easy to moderate and can be beat without konsumables
30% battles will be really hard but manageable with konsumables
50% of the battles will be downright impossible with or without konsumables, due to reduced player damage and increased enemy damage, and the reliance on big combos by the player to cope
It's a 7/10 for the story and 5/10 on towers of time as they currently stand, for a 6/10 overall for the single player suite of the game. If you are in it for single player + online or just for online and the competition, then the game is easily a 9/10 or 10/10. But if you're someone who only wants to fight the AI, use the game to relieve stress, watch fatalities and unlock stuff, then I would recommend you wait till launch or a few weeks after to see if the final product is different. Or wait for a sale. To be honest, I'm down with the single player portion of the game now. Towers of Time stopped being fun for me about 6 hours ago, and I was only doing this for research and awareness.
Krypt online only.
So let me see if I'm understanding all of this correctly. To unlock a skin, you have to:
Most likely going to have to beat a series of 5 or so towers.
The first fights are going to be easy, but the later ones are ridiculous.
Going to have to use konsumables pretty much guaranteed.
Probably going to have to spend Koins and Souls.
Have to meet some BS requirements like 50 Brutalities performed, or something similar.
In the end, you get only 1 or 2 skins.
Said skins might as well be random.
What a mess. Link to thread
