Just heard some news that I really hope isn't true...

#1boomstik81Posted 4/10/2012 1:21:52 AM

Over on the games facebook page there are a number of posts stating that Rebellion are 'doing there own thing as far as multiplayer is concerned and not going for a TDM/DM mode'.

This right here, if true, has killed my enthusiasm for the game as I had some of my best ever online experiences playing the TDM/DM on the original.

Surely TDM/DM is a no-brainer for this game

Please let this be false as I have waiting very patiently for a sequel to Sniper Elite since the 360 was released.

A sniper based multi player mode is difficult to balance. Look at the one in Ghost Warrior - after two minutes everyone abandons their spot and the game turns into a clumsy pistols-only COD match. Maybe they've come up with something more interesting?

It was perfectly balanced in the original and like I said, one of the best online experiences ever.

It's the same company making this one so I cant see how it would be a challenge to do and do well.

If this does turn out to be true then all i can hope for is that the dev team at the very least release Deathmatch modes as DLC although i strongly feel this should be part of the game from the get go.

They'll be putting out a statement regarding this on Thursday, that's when you'll find out for sure whether the game will have dm/tdm or not.

There is plenty of co-op, you've got:

Kill Tally - (As waves of enemies storm in players must race against the clock to eliminate as many as possible in order to achieve the highest possible kill count).

Bombing Run - (Gamers must escape a scheduled bombing run but the only getaway vehicle is broken. Before the bombs fall, the area must be searched for parts and fuel while remaining unseen),

Overwatch - (Players combine separate skillsets as a sniper and an operative and work in tandem to take out enemies).

Campaign - (Play through the single-player campaign with a friend).

Note that the game ONLY supports online co-op.

It doesn't matter how balanced it was, gamers have changed since the first game. You know that there will be idiots running around just like CoD.

After playing through the demo about 5 times this is gonna be a day one purchase for me, it's just too much fun!

I am not buying it until TDM is available.
