MP1st - Lightbox president, Dylan Jobe discusses the Starhawk Beta’s next big patch.
Finally, a new map and 32 players!
Can't wait to test this out. This will be a game changer for sure.
Good, I'll be giving this try. Have not been impressed so far.
I wasn't at first neither, but once I got used to the mechanics and gameplay.....its actually like nothing I've played before. Def gonna by it when it comes out.......its fun as hell lol
I love the game so far and 1.3 will be welcomed. one thing that pisses me off is that the dame players to build a ton of different buildings(walls in wrong places, 10 razoback garages) just for the points.:( Sometimes i wish team kill was a feature. :) PS. Congrats to Lightbox Interactive for a great game and thanks for listening your a breath of fresh air or vacum. :)
Good news, breaking down The Great Wall of China goes much faster now with 1.3. No more holding that button forever, just push triangle near the icon and another button, and gone it is. Friendly fire is not on yet, but the melee kills are different now, you actually hold somebody down to stab him, and in different ways like KillZone.
is what ive been waiting to see.
The update was available earlier today by mistake, I'm one of the 'lucky' few... we can only play against eachother, and there's not many:( Download is a little over 1GB, and was sloow. Cool map though, not that big from the air but it is in a groundvehicle. Dusty Marlboroland, clear sky, desert for boundary. Other 2 maps have few little changes too and the interface is different, and other stuff like deploying vehicles. There's 2 new vehicles: jetbike and tank, cost 2 & 8, 1 and 4 for the vehicles, other stuff costs the same. Jetbike is kinda like Darth Mauls, the tank has 2 seats, driver/gunner (inf ammo) and one on top with own weapons. Bit to slow imo, but a no Hawk tank only match could be fun. Games are set up with loadouts of different available vehicles, we can't play with everything available yet. And for all you pilots, there's a new pick-up called...Torpedo. You should fire it=) Ka-BOOM!
1. Does the Jetbike have guns can you fire your own weapon while driving it GTA style or is it just for fast transportation. 2. Does the tank do anything different from what's typically expected from a tank, what does it look like
Unfortunately not, on the jetbike you can use all your own guns, but as soon as you aim you stop fast. If jetbikers meet they get off their bikes & duel;) The bike has a little jump. The tank is called an Ox and has no tracks but 6 wheels, steers a bit like a forklift I remember. The gun shoots in straight line, no arch but I did see an incoming arch when a tank aimed at me, perhaps 2nd fire I dunno. To easy to kill, 3 or 4 rockets and the turret can't go all the way up so against Hawks it's you & your rocketlaucher.
I forgot: connectionproblems. Gone! Perhaps due to only a few players but no "Failed to connect" or anything like that, and I experienced that a lot before. And we don't have to wait for Emmet to stop tossing that thing and stop leaning and then perhaps grab his PDA etcetera etcetera, it's much faster now.
Good to know, have a bubble :-)
