"The word is out! EA has finally detailed Dead Space 2’s multiplayer mode, and we think you’re going to like it."
Assassin's Creed taught me to not bad mouth multiplayer until i try it. EDIT: I hope it doens't end up like AVP multiplayer where the animations make it so you can't do anything for 5 seconds while you kill a guy
Kinesis in mp? Maybe it's just me, but it seems that Dead Space miners are powerful enough without the addition of kinesis. They better make the levels dark and the necromorphs quiet as hell whenever you move, and allow all of the necromorphs to climb on walls/ceilings, because if there isn't a lot of room for movement as a necromorph, and you will have to do things head on, then there will be some balancing issues.
The Engineers prolly get 3 lives, while the necromorph endlessly respawn! But yeah, with stasis and the line cutters, the engineers are already pretty hardcore. Here's hoping you can also play as Brutes!
I hate how its so light, make it darker! Other than that it looks pretty decent.
I hope it plays kinda like Natural Selection with fluid controls. Screw the RTS part though. I hope it's not only 8 players deathmatch. I hope there's a survival mode/horde mode or something like L4D campaigns.
Looks like Left 4 Dead MP (Which is awesome [email protected]!)
Looks reminiscent of L4D. Cool :0
Should be interesting, though I doubt they can make a game scary with up to three other people in the game, likely voice chatting...Prove me wrong Visceral!
the Dev team will hijack your voice chat and whisper suicidal thoughts into your headset....then they will delete one of your trophies and remove you from the leaderboards
Dead Space 2 MP = Eternal Sorrow? I like it.
Meh If they used the multiplayer space for better and longer campaign it would be better
I'm totally suped for this and honestly didn't see it coming, just awesome. As long as they can maintain the dark, creepy atmosphere online, all ill be good... and awesome. On a COMPLETELY unrelated note, Pandamobile's name has me cracking up. Makes me think of Brick on Anchorman... "I'm riding a furry tractor!".
The first one was such a tasteful surprise. I expect awesomeness from the second Dead Space.
its gonna be SIIIIICK!!
Looks like crap.
...that AVP game only alot slower. I don't see this lasting very long in terms of a Dead space community, clan support...etc. They should of made a on line horde/firefight mode and co-op instead with different characters you can play as. Right now the graphics look decent but nowhere near the first games brilliance. I guess that's what happens when you change devs. The original devs are making a COD game over at Activision, releasing holiday 2011...should be interesting.
Didn't look that good if you ask me. I can't really imagine myself getting kicks out of dead space death match. co-op campaign however...
I'm absolutely loving the look of the multipayer, those engineers look hardcore. I hope the devs still add that creepy scary vibe inthe multiplayer, although I agree that chatting with your mates will diminish the scares, unless the necromorph can 'hide' unseen in the shadows, and move around in the vents! It'll prolly be 4 vs 12 or something like that to balance the Engineers stasis ability and line cutters! Here's hoping that they also implement Move controls for the PS3 multiplayer, along with Extraction - that would make the game super awaesome! PS£ version FTW! Dead Space 2 has officially become my most wanted game of 2011!!!!!
I definatly can't wait to play this, the multiplayer should be a laugh, I always wanted to play as a Necromorph. ^_^
Playing as an engineer is going to creep me the hell out, because other people are making their decisions, not AI... Ugh. But should be awesome none the less.
Online co-op? Check. Tacked-on multiplayer? Check? African eye-candy following you around and wasting ammo? Unknown. This is starting to look like RE5, and I don't mean that in a good way.
lol it does little bit look like RE5, but at least they won't make you pay for to unlock what was on the disc.
i'm not going to touch that online mode....i just hope they're more focus on the sp experience
Be my guest, but when I buy it, I'll be making full use of whats on offer, SP and MP.
Yeah, definately got a Left4Dead vibe from it...
