Default Re: Will you get XP in bug hunt mode.

Skeloton,

I get that it is the gameplay. I wouldn't have played nazi zombies if I hated it BUT I also wouldn't have got the value for money out of it I did without the achievements.

Beyond that,

Myself + judging by this forum think bughunt should have been included in the game as looking at it purely from a co-op POV there is only the campaign and many other AAA games have much more than that for co-op players.

If it was extra maps for that mode thats one thing BUT not including seems a bit wrong IMHO.

However if it has achievements at least it makes it a bit more of a worthwhile purchase at least for me.

there are plenty of achievement/trophy hunters out there and paid DLC minus them often gets less support.

Well I always hope there will be bots in every gamemode, as for when the community decreases or my internet goes down I can still play with bots.

I think it should of been apart of ACM though I did not expect there to be one. I am not however inclined to believe that its cut content, I am inclined to believe that due to circumstances it could not make the shipping date.

A cynical person might say that this was excluded so everyone has to buy their own copy of bughunt via DLC and not be able the DLC with a friend on their consule.
Campaign can be played in co-op via split-screen on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. As far as I'm aware, split-screen is not available for any of the other multiplayer modes.

Can you comment on the other DLC included with the Season Pass? Doesn't make much sense to buy something without knowing what exactly is included.

Can you also comment on what type of PC video settings will be made available? And exclusive features, like PhysX or DX11 features?

Yeah, I wouldn't of minded bots myself but experiences from Killzone 2 or 3...cant remember, it wasn't as fun as playing against other people. Might of had something to do with the fact human players shat themselves when I uncloaked infront of them and blasting a shotgun in their face and bots did nothing, may have influenced it.

ChrisF,

Vs in this type of game generally is played more online then offline as it makes sense to have your own screen. Unless it is perhaps 4 player split screen BUT one vs one wouldn't really work that well in this particular game.

Bughunt though is a co-operative mode like campaign so being able to play it two player split screen is kind of logical.

I'd also like to add that you can play gears of war horde mode in two player split screen + COD's nazi zombies.

Thanks for all the info ChrisF, I know there were times where this topic HAD to be close to getting shuttered so thank you to Tonks for leaving it open so ChrisF could get this information out to us.

Thumbs down Thanks Sega/Gearbox for making us pay for a game mode that should have been included.

LOL so we have to pay extra for a game mode that should have been included in the game? I'm not a DLC hater, but this is going a bit too far and on purpose so it feels even more like a dirty move.

Sure blame it on the customers for assuming a survival wave-based game mode would have been included with our ALREADY $50 purchase LOL. When will publishers/game developers stop being stingy? We already committed to your product, and then you want more?
