Hello evolve community! I’ve been lurking around these forums for some time now and decided to participate in the active discussions that have been going on.
One of the big things that I want in Evolve is a Hardcore mode. I love how the game is so far but I feel like the glowing tracks, the mini map, the notification when birds are scared away and the notification when the monster evolves kinda takes away from the hunting aspect of the game. Now, I’m not saying that the regular mode is terrible and unbalanced, I would just like to see a game mode where there is a limited HUD and less notifications.
I could see some possible balancing issues with a hardcore game mode because most of thing aspects that make it hardcore would impact the hunters the most since the monster doesn’t really have much of a HUD to begin with. However, there are a few things that could be taken away from the monster. Note that these are just ideas and I am aware that some of them probably aren’t the best xD
Hardcore Mode for the Monster:
- The Monster’s Evolution meter can be taken away so that the monster won’t know when he will evolve
- The Sniff radius can be reduced
- The names of the hunters could be removed
Hardcore Mode for the Hunters:
- No mini map
- No glowing foot prints
- Only visible thing on their HUD is their health bar
- No notifications for when birds fly away or when the monster evolves
Again, these are just ideas and they may or may not be balanced. Leave some other ideas below and let me know what you think of mine!
Take care friends and Happy Hunting!
