Yay! I love games that have this.

Ever since Starship Troopers I've always had a soft spot for this kind of game mode

The survival concept isn't new. Don't know why the media and noob gamers keep calling everything "horde mode".
Bathyj  +   518d ago
dlc that should be part of the game?

@ shin
cos GeoW invented horde mode just like it invented cover systems.

DLC already? sad, back in the old days you paid for a whole game and got it.. and the add-ons were free by downloading a patch.

I hope it's free on PC.

So what's the difference between this and Survival mode? Sucks that it's dlc.

Wtf? $15 dlc?!

That was the first thing I noticed, the $15 price tag... Was hoping lower, seeing as Borderlands DLC has been around $10 and they usually included a decent chunk of content to play around with.
ThanatosDMC  +   518d ago
If it's $15, this better be worth a quarter of a full game. I hate dlcs that supposedly adds modes to a game. I feel like it should have been included in the disk but the publishers or whoever decided to cut it out just to make more money.

The other thing i saw during the live stream session with IGN is the limited amount of multiplayer maps. Chances are they're going to sell those for DLC too.

Yea it better come with an Infestation mode like from AVP :P.

Dead Space 3 and now Aliens Colonial Marines.
Two games I was going to buy and now wont be because of DLC BS.

DLC is the bane of this generation.

It is man... It is !

Still, it looks like an awesome game. I've been waiting a long time for a proper Aliens game(AVP doesn't count) It's cool that they got Lance Henriksen and Beihn to reprise their roles as well. 4 player co-op campaign is nice as well. I don't like them announcing DLC before the game has even shipped, but lets be serious for a moment, if we didn't buy games that had DLC or season passes announced before the game then we wouldn't buy any game.

.......... Oldskool Gaming?!.
That's not true, there have been 6 generations(not including wii u) before now, all without dlc.... so that argument is null & void.
isa_scout  +   518d ago
Yeah Uhm, I was talking about this-gen so yeah this argument isn't null and void.

The constant whining over DLC is really starting to vex me. Ppl everywhere are damn near boycotting Dead space 3 for its Co-op and DLC announcment that it had prier to release, yet its only quick unlocks and Bot personalities if u dont want to work for it in-game. Im half way thru, loving every chapter and i haven't bought a single thing.

Now u have this. You dont NEED to buy it! Its there if u WANT it. ACM comes loaded with modes and such day one and if u pre-order. I wonder if componies stop leaking DLC specs, will that change moods? (Highly doubt it)

You have to face the music, gaming is an expensive hobby now that tech keeps evolving. True, there are some companies who will try to nickle and dime the crap out of u (CAPCOM!!! YOU ARE DEAD TO ME), but some are simply giving u options. Instead of pissing and moaning about every little thing that's coming down the pipe in the future, i suggest you get wiser to how things are done or find yourself another hobby...or a better job.

@ Freddy_Millz1
I couldn't agree more. People act like most games are shipped with half the game missing. If a developer wants to offer something like this I'm perfectly fine with that. Developers have to recoupe the huge development costs somehow, and I have no problem with MOST of their practices. If I want it I'll by the DLC if not, well I wont, but the option to buy DLC most of the time is never a bad thing.
bluetoto  +   517d ago
Except you are buying a product with content locked away. All dlc is not bad, disc locked dlc is though, imo.

most dlc game modes and skins are often times just locked away on the disc you already paid for, and paying $15 for a 100kb unlock key is a ripoff.
