The objective of arrive The multiplayer mode is for players to have a "robust" selection of playlists that present the "most unique and definitive" modes and maps. The team wants to respect the legacy of the game, if they need to change some aspects of the multiplayer to fit the collection, they will. At the same time, they want to make sure that it will be sustainable for future pairing updates. The problem with which the equipment is located at this moment is an update of the title that was added to arrive near the end of its useful life, but that was not applied to all game modes. Flowering of the affected reticle updated, the melee shield bleeds and the behavior of armor skills. The team needs to unify these configurations so that the player experience is less discordant between playlists, and this takes time.
There will be two clbadified playlists: bad with MLG V7 map and game variants, and Invasion, which will have three maps but not Invasion Slayer / Skirmish. The maintenance designer, Dana Jerpbak, went into more detail about the modes that will also be implemented in unclbadified playlists:
Reach will adjust to the existing game or alignment categories in the MCC Social Match Composer. The Slayer category will include high weight variants and AR / Gun (low weight). Flag & Bomb will include Stockfile CTF and Multi / Neutral / One Bomb Assault. The Zone Control will include KotH and Territories. The denial of badets will include Headhunter in addition to Oddball. Action Sack will include modes such as Elite Slayer, Dino Blasters, Bro Slayer, Flag Slayer and Speedpile as well as Fiesta. Matchmaking will take advantage of the complete set of Reach maps, including those delivered through the Noble, Defiant and Anniversary map packages. In the case of Anniversary, the current plan is to use the map variants remixed (as opposed to the clbadic ones) combined with the standard TU. [title update] adjustments.
There will be a "small collection" of firefighting playlists that will be constantly updated and maps will be rotated. Pairing will be done on dedicated servers in a new asynchronous network model, which means that the experience should be more consistent. Campaign playlists will offer missions by difficulty and LASO variants, as well as "more specific scenarios focused on infantry battles, vehicle clashes and more."
The team is also working on a new progression system for the entire collection. As the team sought to modernize the progression system for arrive, they decided to add similar options in all areas. This means that they are making a clearer distinction between XP and currency. All PVP multiplayer and PvE Firefight games on dedicated servers will reward XP based on the medals earned for teamwork and performance, as well as XP for completing the match. Players will be able to work through levels, ranks and titles.
The chief head collection It will also have a challenge system that offers daily and weekly challenges that rotate in the game modes. More information about this will be revealed in the future. Meanwhile, the collection will also get seasons that will offer a unique theme and seasonal rewards. Reaching certain levels or completing challenges will reward seasonal points that can be spent on rewards such as armor pieces, Firefight voices and dog tags. The first rewards season will focus on arrive. All season rewards will be new: anything that can be won in the game before the update is applied can be unlocked in the same way after the update has been released. Seasonal points and rewards can be transferred between seasons. Competitive playlists will also be linked to the seasons, with rank restarts at the start of each season and rewards will be awarded to players who reach high ranks.
While the team prepares arrive for Insider testing on PC, they are also preparing for the game to be shown at E3 next month. We'll make sure we hear more details about the game, so stay tuned for the latest information as we get it.
