I am so excited! We're seeing the netgun for the first time in the trailer! And what looks like an AA-12! Cannot wait for the end of March to roll around to play this Trial!

And you can free your mate from the net!!! 

I saw blood when the netgun first hits him. I wonder if there is a timer where the net cranks and your teammate dies, or if you're just temporaily or forever immobilized by the net until freed.



Also I'm curious what the Partial Nudity is about. Skinned gluteus maximus perhaps?

P2 style netgun too, but silver rather than copper. No AvP wrist mounted version.

AvP2 used to just be trapped, with no actual damage. But I'd like to actually see it slowly damage over time.

Yes! Haven't had fun with the netgun since avp2! Wish those of us that downloaded the deluxe edition got a full week of play

Sorry but it just looks bad to me.
Just look at that animation when he is hit with the netgun... so bad.
Might check it out later when it's been out for a while

A weekend seems a little too short to properly test the game, and it makes me worried the devs don't have faith in it being a success.

Hopefully there's an open beta sometime towards the end of March - early April.

We saw a "parry" prompt in an earlier trailer when a human player was being attacked, so I guess it makes sense there'd be some way to defend against a Predator just jumping right in your face and slashing away, so long as you're able to hit the timing (assuming that's how it's going to work).

Also, yes! New footage! Beta (essentially)! Netgun!

To be honest I wasn't really expecting a beta or trial or anything since I figured it would have been announced before now, so that's great news that we'll be playing the game in a month's time instead of two! And the netgun is a weapon I definitely wasn't holding out any hope for. I figured it might have just been too difficult to implement in the type of environments they're going for, but I'm very pleased to see its inclusion! I'm really glad they've got all the main P2 weapons in there, I definitely regard all of those as classics that deserve inclusion in any and all Predator games.

Animating that would be a hassle.
It either rag-dolls which creates awkward posing when hit or it cuts to what the net gun should ultimately do. Otherwise you're creating several different animations for the net capturing someone and that's time consuming because you have to account for a number of different surfaces to get stuck on and the posing.

I would prefer it had animations and the body conforming to the surfaces but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for the sake of game-play since this game doesn't have too high a budget nor the entry price.

Yep, it's all about that gameplay baby!

Looks like they got the poster covered!



Thoughts on the blocking?

Harrigan with the Smart Disc, Hanzo with the sword... I'm personally fine with blocking the gauntlet knives with a blade.

I'm hoping it'll help with being able to occasionally goad some Predator players into a knife fight if you happen to be the last human player standing.  :laugh:
