So.. Host for T5 or No...?


#1

I’ve been seeing a couple of threads popping up recently requesting that the Host Monster from the Development phase be added to the game…

Is this happening? Is it a thing? I for one am very eager for nightmare fuel…


#2

It’s highly unlikely due to the monster player needing to rely on the AI.


#3

Yeah, I’ve read through the threads but they were talking about it as a possibility.


#4

the trend atm is to fix the bugs first then the hunters can start rolling in lol,


#5

People would like it but I don’t see it happening. Not sure it would fit the game now anyway.


#6

Why not?

10 char


#7

It’s currently not a very relatable model. It’s a cloud more or less of smaller beings. I just don’t see it meshing well aesthetically.

Now that I’ve said that it WILL be the next monster and TRS will have made it work. :slight_smile:

#9

Yeah I couldn’t see them do a host monster. No one wants anymore skills based around A.I.


#10

I’m hoping that the Tier 5 Monster is mamallian or arthropodic or at least that two Monsters down the road will be, as well as new interestng themes for them to follow (ice, botanical, etc.)


#11

I’d personally like to see a Yeti-esque monster for Ice…


#12

Why is everyone saying Host is impossible?

They can retool the abilities and make them something else

BING BADDA BOOM. HOST CAN BE IN.


#13

The player controlled host was terrible you rely on everything but yourself to win look at baby gol already god awful to have, add a monster that relies on that to win GG


#14

Good point,

I would say combine player controlled skills with AI… attacks like:

some kind of Egg/parasite mine; place up to five around the environment, when hunter/wildlife are close they explode sending out small parasitic creatures that latch onto the hunter/wildlife and deal small damage over time… they could only be shot off by other hunters for added chaos.

Something like boomer bile from L4D; throw out a ball of slime that covers the hunter/wildlife, makes all sort of parasite’s hatch from the monster and attracts them straight to covered hunter/wildlife in a swarm attack.

Some kind of ‘infection’ attack; looks and acts very similar to the monsters sneak attack but fills the hunter/wildlife with parasite’s that ever burst out after some time - if hunter/wildlife escapes alive - or burst out of a corps on proximity to hunters attacking anything near.


#15

I would love the Host to be the Fifth monster. Tbh i would like more A.I abilities :slight_smile: The Ai the Host used looked fun and i believe they said the Host could equip them aswell. Like one was a wasp type and if the Host equipped that it could fly.


#16

See: Retool abilities.


#17

See: Host is host because those abilities.

Host without those abilities ceases to be host.

Solution: Make new monster.


#18

All three examples were based somewhat on the abilitys showen in the Host video footage just ‘retooled’ as SArais put it; not saying that even with these kind of more player centered abilitys Host would be a good monster if the Dev’s did it, however though it would not realy be host it would not realy be not-Host ever… just the basic idea taken and worked in a slightly different way.


#19

I need a monster with FUR for the 5th monster.

Could I interest you in a 60 ton gorilla?
