Well if it helps you to know, I'm sitting here at work considering playing again on a different challenge level. It completely changes the game and adds a ton of replay value. The pace is frantic, the violence and gore is insane. I've never played an FPS where it was fun to just shoot people. It's fun even in a box room with no textures.

31 minutes to go w00t! Ahaha, it's so nice to be part of a forum where the actual makers of the game post. I'm at school right now... so I won't get to play Emergence until tonight... but I'm pretty close to just skipping school, going home, and playing SiN. Look what you've done to me! Making me choose between school and games!

Talking of replay value, could we have an estimated release for the arena mode? I'm looking forward to that on a par with the game proper.

Edit: Only 30 minutes to go - time to crack open the beer :P

lol, a lot of people who like SiN and are from outside the country speak (or type) English very well. lol... funny. I'm very sorry for whoever has to wait, I feel your pain. But don't worry... we'll let you know how it is.

Regarding Arena Mode,

Well given that it will be used in the challenge competition at E3 (implying it's pretty much done), I can't imagine it being too long before we add it with a patch.

Can't wait to see that... lol, I'm not even sure what arena mode is exactly... Do you just pick a map from the game and try to survive? Or are their actual objectives? Do the NPC's just randomly spawn and adjust to your skill, is that it?

...

Because if it is thats gonna be Effin' Tight!

It sounds like it's a single player last man standing mode with respawning NPCs, the dynamic difficulty system and stats - in other words, FPS bliss.

There are seperate maps for the Arena Mode, but they use the same theme as the real game maps. Each map has a time limit... if you survive that long [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] The maps are fairly small. Small to the point where if you wanted to shoot someone, you don't have to wait much more than 5 seconds to find someone to kill [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] It's basically a slaughterfest with the Challenge System adjusting to provide you with the challenge level you want.
