The way we live our lives is changing. At the World Integration Summit in the Bahamas this past April, the organizers discussed the need for a new way of thinking about the world and what it means to live in the 21st century.
They said that a new world integrated trade solution (WITS) would allow each nation to trade with each other in greater depth, on a larger scale, and more economically. The idea of a global trading system is a bit like the idea of a global currency. It doesn’t make sense, but it’s not impossible. The world needs money because of all the stuff we buy, and the World Trade Organization (WTO) has set some of this stuff up for trading.
Its a catch-22: Money is the ultimate global currency, and at the same time, we cant trade with people without money. This is why currencies are so important, because they make it simple for governments to govern themselves. But they can’t keep the currency currency because that would mean that the people who have the money would have more money, which is the exact opposite of what they need.
In the video clip above (and in the two trailers we saw) Arkane’s new game looks like it is going to be a little bit more than just a few days of gameplay, though. It also seems that the time-looping stealth mechanics will be much more robust, as will the combat system. The only issue I have with this is that time-looping doesn’t work in every situation.
The trade system is a big part of the puzzle in Deathloop, and we already have a pretty good idea of how it works. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to see how it will turn out, particularly as there are a few elements that seem to be missing from this trailer, such as the ability to have a trade partner if you have the currency. It would have been nice to see those abilities, since they’re some of the best in the game’s arsenal.
Well I was thinking exactly the same thing. While the trade system is very useful, the fact that it’s so heavily tied to cash means it doesn’t really have a lot of options for players to go for. There’s a trade partner, but that’s it. I think it would have been nice to see a way to trade that also allowed you to trade other currencies. If I think of it right, you can trade any currency you want.
I think this is a good idea. You can trade all the currencies you want. You can trade the game currency, the platinum, the diamonds, or the platinum gems, for any other currency you want. You can even trade other currencies for items you have in the game.
We’ve been talking with Arkane about this recently and they are quite excited about the opportunity to add trading to Deathloop. In particular, they’d like to take this opportunity to give users the option of trading gold for diamond or platinum for platinum gems in the game. The gold is the currency you use for in-game purchases. You can trade gold for diamond or platinum for platinum gems.
This is something that other players have been asking for a while, but Arkane says that it hasn’t been possible to implement yet. It’s a very interesting opportunity for the game, and we’re excited to see what they come up with.
The idea is that the diamond is the actual currency, and the platinum gems are the store value. We haven’t seen any screenshots yet, but I wouldn’t expect that this is something that Arkane wants to go public with.
