It looks like both on the sub reddit and illfonic forums, nobody is happy with the new mode and that just only one map. People were hoping for more interesting gameplay and maps, rather instead we get more glitches like drop in frames, the key button to become Predator in Clash mode does not respond, the fact that its a capture the flag with only still 4 players on each side with the possibility of becoming one Predator, and fundamentally not much change for the game. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing an allied Predator fighting an enemy Predator its pretty fun to witness, only that such battles are rare as either side melts the Pred before the other appears to do a PvsP battle. People, including myself, were hoping for more player inclusivity such as 12 FT vs 3P. Heck, perhaps if it was a 5 vs 5 game, where you got 4 fireteams and one Pred on each side, things would be more interesting, as there is more consistent player flow and action coming in. Perhaps if a more engaging mode came out before this, the fanbase would be a bit more receptive of it, but due to the lack of actual gameplay changes other than DLC skins, people bashed this mode very hard.
People even lament the fact that the new mode is pretty much Call of Duty with a possible chance of Predator, citing the new mode they had back in Ghosts when you have a big amount of kill streak you get to be a Predator. Which is honestly ironic and terribly sad. Its a shame really, I really did expect more from this patch but its just.....flat.
I did like the new map in that its also a large cave area where we get to see more indications of Predator activity in ancient human history but its also overshadowed by the fact that many assets such as missions were copy and pasted in the map, such as the satellite laser mission being an exact same word by word dialogue and gameplay but just a different area. So far, from what I played, we got only one or two new missions but everything else was basically moved over from the previous maps.
Give this patch a 2/5, such a let down honestly.
