I was wondering in the final launch of the game if there will be Day and Night Cycles? I saw that most gameplay was at night at e3 and Pax, but in the interactive trailer it seems a bit more in the daytime and a lighter environment. Can any Dev give light(haha) to this question?
I’m betting all the maps will be night-time maps, if only to help with the monster’s concealment. It also increases the chances of hunters blundering into dangerous wildlife.
I thought it changed time of day with each evolution
Time to watch e3 videos again
It looks like Jungle Ruin is during the day to me, it’s very overcast though. It has that filtered grey look to it from the clouds.
I hope they keep bleak and slightly oppressive in all maps. I’d rather not go hunting a Goliath in a happy, rainbow filled, map.
We’ve got some nice variety in terms of time of day. @FrontlinerDelta will be happy to hear that there are no happy rainbow filled maps.
Double rainbow all the way!
Indeed I am! I personally liked the atmosphere of L4D1 a lot more than L4D2.
But… I wanted to go to Candy Mountain… And eat rainbow Unicorns to become the Best Goliath Ever… Instead of fire, he shoots skittles!
A map set a dusk, with the setting sun casting lots of long, stark shadows would be great. Lots of dark recesses for the monster to lurk in, but if he makes a run for it he may be silhouetted against the bright sky.
Beautiful AND atmospherically terrifying!
