Game Modes?

Post by Dusty267 » 07 Nov 2015, 16:11

If this is irrelevant since it may be down the road, feel free to remove this feed :)

I was curious to see if you guys had any plans for future game modes? I think that when the thousands of pilots come swarming in, it would be fun to have full-scale CTF or something like Assault. 8v8 CTF would be really enjoyable in this game I think. A larger, symmetrical map and you got it. Just curious.

It's 2015, and all of those game modes have been done before. =p

Sol Contingency should make up some new games, with more replayability than CTF.
At least in my opinion. Or do 5+ game modes, for variety. If SolC doesn't have "play to win" elements, like collection of tokens or upgrades, there should still be other features that keep people coming back.
And not just fanatics. The teenage kid with spare time and no girlfriend who isn't a major 6DoF fan might still become addicted if there's variety in game modes.

No new modes to be added to PG but of course we'll have more in the full game!

Wait....so Proving Grounds is what then? Is there going to be like and "expansion" where it has multiplayer and singleplayer, and the multiplayer will have more game modes? I thought Proving Grounds was the game itself.

Proving Grounds is a demo for a game that will be built in UE4, hopefully after a successful Kickstarter campaign. We are testing PG so that it will be a good promotional tool for that Kickstarter.
