Hostile Wildlife/Monsters in Titanfall; KERAYZAY AWESOME!

#1SigmaLongshotPosted 2/18/2014 2:02:21 PM
With Respawn's recent reveal that you'll be pursued by wildlife and beasts, "some that can even pose threats to titans themselves", how do you think they'll work in-game?

Perhaps a totally neutral, randomized faction that attacks both sides? Or would you prefer a more "Left 4 Dead Director" approach where, to even odds, a leviathan attacks the winning side?

(oh, link: http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/02/18/titanfall-maps-monsters-and-story-details-to-blow-your-mind)

Interestingly, during the code-dig they found an ai command called "leviathan_map_rift", and one called "leviathan_frenzy".

Sounds big. And... angry.

I imagine it'll be like the 2008 Turok reboot. That game's multiplayer had AI-controlled dinosaurs roaming the maps that basically went after everyone.

Someone mentioned how cool dinosaurs would be in this game instead of mechs a few days ago. Maybe they weren't far off. I just want a Dino-mech!

I'd like to see some "fragile alliance" scenarios.

You're battling enemy titans, then BOOM, some more TRADITIONAL MYTHOLOGICAL-STYLE TITANS burst in, and the two factions are forced to work together whilst you battle a huge chimera hydra tektite... secretly waiting to backstab your "buddy" as soon as the beast dies...

Now I'm just imagining a Grimlock-class of playable titan.

GRIMLOCK MUNCHED STRYDER'S HEAD OFF! GRIMLOCK FARTED ELECTRIC SMOKE!

This sounds like a neat addition to an already fun game.

It sounds like bots in a different skin. The sheer amount of non-player-controlled combat is more and more off putting.

I'm eager to see if one of the hardpoint domination bases is in the nest of some almighty rancor, or perhaps there could be a dedicated "kill area" like a pit you could lure titans into to be beastie-baby swarmed.
