Chrome Hounds Online Play Ending
You've got just four months of early Xbox 360 mech warfare left!
Are you still playing Chrome Hounds? It was one of the first Xbox 360 games, having launched to Japan in June 2006 (and the month before overseas), so if the answer is yes, pat yourself on the back, but brace yourself for some somewhat bad news!
From Software posted a notice yesterday announcing an end to network service for the game in all areas of the world. Once the network service ends, players will no longer be able to use the modes selectable from the title menu's World Mode, including Network Battle Mode, and Ranking.
Of course, you'll still be able to access all the game's offline content.
The loss of online play is probably a bummer if you like to team up for massive mech on mech warfare. But there's a bright point. The network service won't go black until January 7, 2010.
That gives you four more months of play time, so make the most of it!
