    Questions for the Developers!

    This thread is for questions you would like to ask the developers about this game.

    There's no promise that the Developers will be posting in this thread, especially since they're hard at work on the game.

    Someguy and UberJumper are attending E3 this year, so they will be using this thread to gather questions for the interviews we do.

    So, ask your question AFTER reading to see if your question has been asked (and maybe answered!). Duplicate questions will be deleted without prejuidice :-)

    In the press release, it says:

    By engaging in combat with the enemy, players will earn action points that can be used to upgrade their arsenal, order in tanks and many other vehicles, build machinegun nests and anti-tank emplacements or call for air or artillery strikes.
    Leading to the question: How similar is "The Outfit" to games like Uprising or Antaeus Rising?

    Are squad members replacable over the course of the campaign?

    Are there any RPG elements?
    Remember: you're a blogger. Pretense is your co-pilot.

    Is the control of the squad like Brothers in Arms where you can shoot at targets yourself, or is it more of a Full Spectrum Warrior setup where you tell your character/squad what direction to fire?

    As an addendum to soul's post, is it along the lines of the Battlezone - a sort of hybrid FPS/RTS?

    If not, can it be? Pretty please?

    Will this game have destructible terrain as awesome as in Company of Heroes?

    Will this game be Xbox Live enabled for multiplayer/downloadable content?

    1. Will The Outfit support multiplayer without X-box live?
    2. Will there be an option to play cooperatively?

    Will The Outfit and Company of Heroes have some sort of tie-in storywise?

    Will there be the option to upload badges from your PC to your 360? If so will they be the same as DoW badges? That way I could take my cool badges and load em up. If loadable badges are not going to be an option, why not? People have said that players would abuse it and use it to express racial and pornographic material, but this is rated Mature. Players should be able to deal with insults in a mature fashion.

    When I played HW2, I systematically deleted porn from my computer, usually around 10 images of it, daily. They all came from the HW2 badge folder.

    I'd really rather not have to deal with that again.

    Also, you have to be 18+ to have an XBL account.

    Do you honestly believe that everyone who uses XBL is over 18? Have you ever played Halo 2 online?

    Xbox Live is 13+ for legal reasons. Not 18+.

    MS currently doesn't support user created content for 360 games AFAIK

    They dont. Not on any games released as of yet. Unless, of course, you count the custom soundtracks as "user created". In that case, the system itself supports your playlists.

    This is very important to me, so I hope I get an answer:

    Will there be a co-op mode with System-Link? I've read on the website that it is possible to play co-op using X-Box Live or Splitscreen. But what about System-Link?

  22. #22

    Yes, you can play co-op over system link, as well as head to head with up to 8 boxes.

    You can also play head to head up to 8 players with any combination of split screen / system link that you want (i.e. 2 360's in split screen vs 4 360's not in split screen, etc.)

    Thank you so much for your answer. Thats a reason for me to buy two games and a second X-Box 360 for my girlfriend - we really like co-op playing over system-link.

    It's great that some developers program such features. Most games doesn't support co-op over system-link but over X-Box Live and so I'm looking especially for that feature when a new game is launched. We really appreciate that.

    Sorry for my grammar. I'm from Germany and since school where I learned english 9 years have passed. :umm:

    Thanks Starblade.

    I forgot one important thing: With co-op I meant playing the campaign in co-op, not just Deathmatch against AI-opponents. Is that also possible over system-link?

    Is there any cool Relic games avatars you can unlock or have available for download? By Relic games, I mean Homeworld, HW2, or DoW. I know those are PC only, but I would love to see some cool DoW avatars. Rare has some avatars that were from games on Xbox and older systems that you can have.

    Is there a mix-up on the demo with the Panther? I noticed it has a 88 on it but the actual Panther had a 75 on it. Was this meant to be the Tiger maybe?

    No mistake, the 88 looked meaner, so we put it on

    Some things you need to check on

    first off i'd like to say this game is awesome i love everthing about this game the way you kept the units and vehicles different and like they really are, i have been waiting for a game like this for some time the rts and shooter blend fit perfectly oh and do we get to use the german 88mm field gun? that was a awesome weapon and why that silly cannon looking 75mm? and um i really hate to say this but the pinball effect when you hit a rock in a vehicle really needs to be fixed it feels like the game can't figure out what to do after it hits it and some times it careens around bounceing offthe eviroment plus when you jack a vehicle... now dont get me wrong this is a great way to turn the tides in a fight it would be nicer if it was only when they where stoped or the slow moveing tanks it kinda sucks to be jacked and stoped instantly while speeding past them in a fast moveing vehicle or give us the option to try to fight back like the let you in mechassult 2 but aside for that this game rocks and hope to see support for this game ith new vehicles,guns and maps

    mabey the vehicles can just stop when they hit a object thats to big to ride over like rocks or buildings again great game i would recommend anyone to try this game its great! and i only been playing the demo so far will be getting it tomorrow

    How exactly do you play on Xbox Live with 2 players on the same system? What are the requirements of having accounts?

    Southpaw

    yes, i know, there are a lot of people who HATE this topic, but it is important to me. Does, or will, The Outfit support a southpaw controller config? Switching movement to the right stick and using the left to aim is the way i play (please, no "adapt!!! get over it!" comments...i play that way, end of story).

    please let me know, as i have postponed purchasing this game until I can find out. it's a make it or break it deal for me.

    thanks!

    Ok, I really get a kick out of the skins for multiplayer, but here is the big question for me: Are you going to have updates that reskin ALL the vehicles for each theme? Because like the bright green or orange or pink vehicle stands out a little wierd when all the other vehicles look normal (except for a stripe and the badge). I like the reaper theme with the flaming light tank skin, but I want to have a flaming panzer too!

    This game is so damn cool, but I end up having a bunch of friends which are all lefties. These people are not buying the game before a 'southpaw' option is added to the controls of The Outfit.

    I''m not crying or anything, but I would appreciate it (and a lot of peops with me) if Relic released a patch so that soutpaw would be possible.

    Thnx for the effort!

    Maybe you should consider waiting more than 9 days post-release to bitch about lack of patches.

    1. I don't notice any lag.
    2. 9 days and the game's already dead? Or by 'dead', do you mean 'People don't play when I do', or 'People just don't like the multiplayer'?

    fix em fast or their in the past
    World of Warcraft proves that wrong.

    "Will this be the first Relic game with cheat codes?" Dont you mean without?

    One of the relic games had a cheat called "cheat_killself" but a wonderful mod came along and changed it to "cheat_noob"

    Anyway, this sounds sort of like mercenaries to me.What is it like? :P

    Are you going to say "when it's done," when I ask you, "when is it going to be released?"
