    What in heavens name is the subject of this thread? Are you asking if alien swarm will be playable online? Are you saying you like the idea of playing online? Are you saying you liked the comanding thing in natural selection?
    On demand this signature has been changed. I hope nobody was insulted or got harmed due to my signature. If this is the case, I'm fully responsible for the harm that was done. Do you feel harmed or you simply want a listening ear?

        Did we just walk smack dab into the middle of an already existing conversation? I am lost.


        Evan,
        If you can't be a bit more specific as to what your talking about, thread closed.

          Commanding other marines like in NS isn't how Swarm works. Basically, you're only playing as a small squad trying to get the mission done.

          However, if there are not enough players, rest of the team will be AI controlled marines, which you can order around. And of course, if you've practiced before with the other players and have agreed that one guy is the leader, that can't be all bad for survival.
          Ah, to be a hero. Keeping such company...

            Ah, I think DQ answered his post. Hehehe, I do think the question could be a bit more clear though

            Evan, welcome to the blackcat forums ... where people go nuts if they spot something unfamiliar.

              Yes, the players work together to complete their mission objectives against the dreaded Swarm threat. It's a co-op game.

                    You can play it over the internet, yes. It's not team vs team though, it's co-op missions.

                      Can't you add team vs team, just for kicks?

                      Or better, human-controlled aliens vs human-controlled team

                      Or! Human-controlled aliens vs AI team!!!!!!


                      OMGOMGOMG!

                        We did some experiments with human controlled aliens, but decided not to include them. It would really be a totally different game, requiring new maps, new game rules, etc. Perhaps it will be a future project, though I'm not promising anything.
