Can we play the game without internet connection? No bots there?

Wweyland

Not sure about the internet connection but there are bots that you can set. No bot Predator though, which is a shame.

So you dont need to wait for other players to join the game. I thought that you need to create a server and than wait for other players to join it.

No you can do private matches with bot Fireteam players. Keep in mind it's not meant to be how the game was intended to be played. Bots are more to keep a match moving in the event a player drops out but they can be used for solo play.

It's not great but on occasion I do challenge runs with them hiking up the damage they do among other modifiers.

And if you want to play as a human, there is no "Predator bot" option?

No Predator bot. We've asked and I'd personally take a less refined approach if it meant enabling one to fight Predator offline.

David

Bad news then.

Wweyland

A Predator bot would probably take too much of their precious resources.
I don't think there has ever been a good Predator AI, all the AvP games were heavily scripted.
AvP Classic wasn't, but there the Predator just stood on the ground while either sniping you or stabbing with the spear.
It might be cheaper to just release skins.

What even is that, a dwarven Irish Predator?

Tank Predator, something something bad elite lore

The explanation was that they're guys who are used in invasions. The guys who storm the beach and take over. Guys who are no better armed than anyone else they just have a higher pain threshold and wear an oversized helmet.

No nanotechnology, no genetic tampering to create monsters, no cyborgs with advanced limbs, they're the same kind of Predator as all the others but they can get punched a little harder.

Personally speaking I think they should've gone weirder with it. This is the species that brings a nuke with them on a hunting trip. The military should be way more extra. Probably barely recognizable as a Predator. Think the Halo brutes or the armors from the cover of that one AVP book. Maybe not even actual platings but shield generators turning them into high tech gladiators. Cause yeah it's consistent, but the appearance feels wrong for the concept. Like even Fugitive made more sense to draw from given how out of the ordinary his equipment looked.

Actually that might fit!

But yeah as others have said, it's the "Tank Predator" that was datamined a while ago and some expected to be the last piece of content released for the game. So far though there's been no sign of it, and we've now officially "broken" Illfonic's schedule for DLC drops. So it seems unlikely it'll ever fully see the light of day (though the mask and dreads are already in the game).

Rest in Peace

Sad this will be unplayable someday.

It won't be unplayable, but once the license is lost all of the DLC will likely be delisted.

There is still a physical disk though for offline play.
