Only two years after the PlayStation 4 game's initial release of February 27, 2020, publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment confirmed that One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows multiplayer servers will go offline (aka 'sunset') on February 28, 2022. 👊 ☠️

Developed by Spike Chunsoft, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows will remain partially available for play according to the Tweet below to quote:

"One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows multiplayer servers will sunset on February 28, 2022. All offline game modes, along with online 1vs1 game matches, will still be available for play.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support."

:nolove: This disheartening news comes following Sony's Closure of PlayStation Vue, Ending of Partial Message Service, PS5 C-Bomb CMOS Battery Issue, PSP Store Closure and Proposed Class-Action Lawsuit Over PlayStation Store Game Sales.

That said, brings up an interesting point regarding this news... to quote:

"While you'd then probably think (and be correct in thinking so) that all offline game modes will still be available for players to play, online 1v1 game matches will still be available as well, just not... everything else.

That's fairly interesting, because usually when a game's multiplayer servers are taken offline, it means everything, not just most of it. This would seem to indicate that the 1v1 matches are (or will be) done via peer-to-peer, and not using matchmaking." :unsure:

well, i can add a 4 option to the fire... after a offline multiplayer - lan support patch is launched by the developer company.

that could be the best choice ;)

Never unless they provide alternatives like the ability to setup user created servers, offline multiplayers as stated by denunes. I find it really a sucky move when they pull this stuff off, specially on those who charge you a lifetime of microtransactions and p2p after you pay the full price of a game as then i have an even bigger beef as a completionist with online multiplayer locked achievements!!


At least there's still the option for the 1v1 matches? Kind of sucks they won't be providing alternatives for the modes that'll be going soon though, especially given short amount of time it had been up for.
