Serious, this game is awesome. As much as I loved the first title this one is better in every way. I’m about 25hrs in, have 2 characters going(because I have 2 sets of co-op friends), and I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface.
I really want to get in to it, but I wasn’t in to the first one and I’m not seeing anything in this one yet that will change that. Not sure what it is, either the bullet spongey enemies, drab environments or what, just not grabbing me as much as I want it to.
Jesus Christ, this game…
The new DZ is fantastic and a loot whores paradise. Played around in there for about 3hrs with a group of myself, Wicked Catfish, Dirty Penguin, and SG Core. We didn’t see a single Rogue Agent and only came across one other group. I’ve got some video and will put it here later.
Is there AI to shoot or was this a 3 hour leisurely stroll through the woods with your homies?
Tons of AI. There are Landmarks in the DZ where high end loot can be found but first you must clear out the NPC baddies. You will also come across random groups of NPCs patrolling the streets the DZ which presents problems. If you fire on one patrol it may grab the attention of another patrol. Sometimes you might even run into a situation where you have 2 different NPC factions fighting against one another. Also, not all loot has to be extracted now. Only the high end contaminated stuff. But when you call for the extraction chopper it alerts NPCs and other non NPCs that you are doing so.
Quick look at some combat. First clip I got a little gadget happy and used both my Hive and my Attack Drone. Second clip I hit weak spots on the bad guys causing their fire bombs to go boom. LOL
I just had a wild ass experience. Went into a sewer looking for loot and all of a sudden this game turned into a survival horror game. From the moment I go in there the place is real creepy like and I’m hearing footsteps but I think maybe it’s my own and I’m hearing an echo. I keep moving forward through the tunnel picking up loot along the way when I hear the sound of chains dragging on the ground. I enter a room with my gun up and see a door across the way when a guy comes charging through it. I mow his ass down with my M60 and then it happens. A giant ass Bane meets Leatherface looking dude charges me with a chainsaw. I drop my Hive and turn and run. Son of a bitch. I’ll upload video in a bit. So. Damn. Awesome
8 player raid launches on April 25th. YUSSSSSS!!!
More photos. Going to start trying my hand at combat photography. Only problem is it could leave my group a man down. Oh well, sometimes folks gotta die for art.
I need more wildlife!
