So since the release of Rise of Ramm, it actually limits the “Major antagonist” that could potentially be used in the series. Rise of Ramm showed us exactly who was on the council prior to E-Day. Karn/Ukkon/Ramm have already been used in the prequals listed above. Sraak is dead, and Droak has vanished.
So the best options for Prequal antagonist as far as I see it
- Skorge -This one is self explanatory. We have no content about him from the Start of E-day all the way of until Gears 2. So he makes the perfect antagonist for a Post-E day prequal.
- Vrol- From the Rise of Ramm Comics. He was still the high priest of the Kantus on E-Day. No information is known about how he eventually died. So naturally he’s a perfect antagonist to die at the hands of a prequal squad.
So since the “Rise of Ramm” Comics came out and essentially outlined all the major “big bads” of the locust, its hard to create more locust on that level without having to justify why they weren’t on the council prior to E-Day. So the solution is probably to create locust to act as “right hand men” and second in command to existing high ranking locust like Ukkon, Ramm, Skorge and Karn.
As far as the COG squads the three different prequals above gave us quite a variety of blueprints for potential people to use. People from the original trilogy, People from the comics, people briefly mentioned in the games and completely new characters, the possibilities are endless.
So my question to you is how do you think they should tackle prequal DLC/Games in the future? What do you want to see as far as Antagonist? What do you see as far as COG? Do you want new characters, characters from the comics, characters from the games? Any characters you want to see expanded on through prequal content?
