New PvE modes/maps?

    So...anybody hear anything regarding that from the devs/rumors? Anything new coming to the PvE part of EC?

    All in all what do you guys think? Does PvE need some love here?

    Personally i would love to see PvE take a larger scale; say, a bigger map with trenches and buildings and such, a team of 6-8 players against up to 50 Nids at a time (multiple warriors, Carnies etc.). Like a full-on bug siege type of thing, like in good old Starship Troopers.

    Wouldn't that be beautiful?

    We can only hope that the addition of a dedicated PVE section of the forums means they got something big cooking in the background.

    I hope so !! PvE is one of the reasons I bought this game :)

    Yes, we can hope for another map or some kind of cool reward for completing the missions.

    But as for cooking? Mmmm... nothing beats the smell of Plasma roasted Nid in the morning.

    I hope so too. I haven't been interested in the PvE aspect of this game in forever.

    I'm still hoping they'll do a PvPvE mode. Not even particular on how they do it, maybe just some sort of combination of trying to survive longer than the other team. Like last stand or exterminatus, except you can fight each other too.

    We'll call it ENDLESS, because there's no time limit, and the Nids just keep coming until one side dies.. And possibly have a win condition for the Nids.. By nom noming both sides.

    I would like that too, but I have no idea how hard it would be to program on the open maps.

    Now, if a point was suddenly swarming with Nids JUST around that point? Hmmm.... *evil grin* Maybe even a way to open a tunnel for them and suddenly the enemy holding it has to deal with the Nids in addition to your assault?

    10 players on Harkus/Fortress, holding off constant waves of Tyranids while waiting for extraction. Hell yeah.

  9. I would like to see a sabotage mode. You have to enter in the dungeon and here is the twist:

    Instead of just advancing to the objective, you have to destroy from the inside the nids, this means that you have to bring some AV weapons to destroy incubators, or fusion cores to explode the nest. This would also mean that you have limited time to escape when you destroyed the core.

    Also, a horde mode to hold a territory:

    You get a part of a map, for example... maggon point b. And you have to defend the point for a period of time waves of nids.

    How about a map where you have to escort a vehicle (tank?) into an area that is infested to purge it so that it can be reclaimed by your other forces?

    The vehicle has limited ammo for its heavy weapons (Maybe multiple flamers? Sororitas Immolator anyone? *evil grin*) so it has to get very close to the target to fire. Said target would probably be a Hive. Needless to say, the Nids would throw EVERYTHING at you.

    I would play that.
