So I’m sure a lot of what we see in that trailer is subject to change and honestly, almost all of it looked great and beyond my expectations for this game.
Glowing footprints: Not a fan of how obvious they are. Now obviously I have not played it so maybe the game was too slow paced without glowing footprints but I just didn’t care for the visual at all. It was too obvious and didn’t feel like tracking a monster, it looked like a neon sign saying “THIS WAY >>>>>”. I’d personally prefer if only trapper could see them like this or had an ability to highlight footprints. Otherwise it’s just too easy to “pick up the trail”. Again, I haven’t played it and maybe Turtle Rock doesn’t wish to go this in depth with the “hunting” aspect.
Support’s laser beam. This one is less subjective tbh. It is the most annoying sound effect and really grates on the ears. Even when I’m not watching from support’s PoV, I cringe every time I hear it and if I were that support, I’d just not use the gun because of how obnoxious the sound is. Minor complaint to be sure, but I really hope this sound effect gets some kind of tuning. Maybe lower the pitch a fair bit, so it’s more of a deep hum, instead of a really high pitched whine.
Still looking forward to this game, it’s already my GotY. Loved L4D to death and this looks even better honestly. But would love to hear what others have to say on these points.
And just to reiterate one more time: I realize my first point is subjective and that I haven’t played it. So keep in mind I’m not trying to assert that “I know best”, these are just my initial thoughts after studying nearly every second of the trailer.
EDIT: Not really sure why it’s formatting my simple “1. 2.” like that. I just manually typed it. Weird.
