Hello everyone this thread will be discussing the implementation of a beast mode in Gears 5. Please keep all your comments respectful and constructive.
First off, I would like to start by saying that I am aware it would take several hours and cost thousands to implement but I think the pay off would be worth it.
I feel beast mode could be implemented fairly easily because the building blocks are already there. Jacks hijack ability is very similar to gears 3 beast mode , its only difference is that gears 5 has a timer on the character and not the round like gears 3. The most challenging part I could see in implementing a beast mode in Gears 5 would be creating layouts for all the bases on every map and creating a UI so that you can select a Swarm character and of course balancing the swarm characters. They could use the same exact values from gears 3 regarding time earned from destroying certain obstacles or killing certain cog enemies.
This mode would really help the player base because you could do a daily and featured beast match with special modifiers like enemies are equipped fire grenades or enemies must be executed. These daily and featured beast matches would offer RE-UP exp. An example would be :
Inconceivable: 10,000 exp
Advanced: 5,000 exp
Beginner: 250 gold
I know beast mode may not come but I am very passionate about it and you never know maybe it might come in a future op. Thank you for listening.
