Features?

Post by MikeAP » Sun Nov 16, 2014 8:50 pm

Multiplayer cooperative mode; 2(+) human versus AI?

Skirmish mode?

Map editor?

It's been a while since we've heard anything. Just want to confirm these features.

We are not currently planning Coop for first release, though would be interested to know if it is something that would be popular.

Not planning any random skirmish map system, it doesn't really work with the approach that we have with the visuals.

There is an integrated map editor, yes. It is the same one we are using to build the game content.

Cheers

It's been a huge hit for BA2.

COOP would be interesting. A lot of my friends and I have wondered what COOP CC would be like. Especially if I could control one element, my friend another. We could do some coordinated attacks for sure! AI would need a tweak, but large scale battles would be nice. The ability to indirect fire from tanks and artillery/AA/AT guns would be nice addition too. Seems like the 88 just never got as much love as it should. They could fire similar to Mortars, just loaded and more explosive. (^_^)

Co-op CC would be great. Especially if we can get N (NvN) up to a slightly big number and still maintain connection. 4v4?

It has been a dream to play Co-op CC since CC1. Using even an external sound sharing system for comms, it could be a lot of fun to try and coordinate Arty and Air (controlled by 1 player representing upstream HQ), Armor, Inf. Easy to coordinate with 1 player, but much tougher with several. "get your infantry up to protect my tanks"..."get your tanks in overwatch to protect my inf"..."Move up on the left, I am pinned here. Give me smoke rounds at GRID 165,234"...etc.

Hope the new code can get there.

What about Axis campaign? As we know the singleplayer content is mostly focused on campaign for the US 1st Division through a number of operations. Does that mean there will be no Axis campaign, as there would be no German unit that fought the division through all of the three operations (correct me if I'm wrong)?

Also, is the AI being reworked to be actually challenging?

The Bloody First will have a US Army focus, and while you will be able to play the Germans side in battles and operations, there will not be a German campaign.

The AI is getting an overhaul, and I hope players will find it challenging.

i have never played any close combat games, as they have just recently been brought to my attention. i have a ton of family (bros/cousins/uncles) and we all play company of heroes together. we would all buy close combat if it had 4 player multiplayer. 1v1, 2v2, 4 player ffa etc.. and a co-op mode. is there any chance? i mean like 8 instant purchases lol
