I have one big question: Why isn’t there a roam mode in this game?
The reason I ask -
I’m a fairly inexperienced player in the FPS realm. I bought this game because I thought playing as the monster would be really cool. And it is… but…
The world is the monster’s natural habitat. It spent its entire life stalking, and preying, and learning every outcrop of climbable rock. Before humans arrived, it was king…(ish)
From what I’ve seen so far, playing the hunters is a fairly standard affair, FPS-games-wise. Playing the monster, on the other hand, especially against four people, is a completely different mechanic that, I feel, can’t truly be learned and internalized while always being on the defensive.
This was first suggested by someone else back in August (I'd really like to see a free roam mode) and hints were dropped that this may be coming … but it never did, I guess…
A roaming mode would not be difficult to create. It can be as simple as a check box of “no hunters” (or “no monster” for whose playing humans) in the Solo custom game selection… and then just have them not show up.
