    Exclamation Global Agenda 2 spoils

    So, after years of silence, Erez finally spoiled some stuff! Here's what we know so far

    General information:

    The name will be Global Assault

    The new game is a 'spiritual' successor to GA.

    Current design is 5v5 PvP, objective based.

    No strict classes.

    We will be taking fun elements from all the games we made so far, this includes:

    - Allowing players to improve various stats while leveling up in match (for example, make your weapon or armor stronger)

    - No need to log in with a 'class', just select the way you want to play and join the Queue.

    - Most likely follow the Smite purchase model with a one time price option for all game play stuff like weapons (the Smite godpack)

    - Have spectator view and support e-sports

    - Will try to keep a dome city area for players to get together

    - has 1st/3rd person views (shooting is from first person mostly)

    - lots of weapons including the mini-gun, grenade launcher, rocket launcher, flame thrower, shotgun, SMG, and more. Lots of off-hands as well including force fields, drones, shields, turrets, grenades, sensors, and more.

    - No dedicated healer class (some off-hand kits have healing)

    - close Beta before the end of the year if all goes well

    While a lot may seem different, the overall feel of time to kill, using offhand abilities, health nuggets, rest device and such keep the game play similar and fun. Also, a lot can change before we release.



    Feel free to view them yourself here:http://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalAgenda2/


    I don't know about you guys but I'm pretty excited!


    Some new infromation:

    ShadowControl logged onto Global Agenda today to run some tests for Global Assault. We were able to stop him just in time to ask some questions(Creds to Sykarius). Originally I wanted to record so I could retype and post the questions and answers as precise as possible. Unfortunately the recording never saved, but I will do my best to share what information I remember error-free.

    Genral Information

    • Global Assault will be mostly similar to Global Agenda compared to Smite and Tribes: Ascend.
    • Jungle Map confirmed, and no I am not trolling. Ask HiRezKate =D
    • Holo Helmets like Season 1, 2, and 3 as special rewards.
    • They are trying to make Clans more comprehensive.
    • e-Sports will be supported if enough are interested.
    • The only thing they plan to sell besides the "one time price option" is a booster for double drops.

    Item Drop System

    • The item drop system will be very similar to Global Agenda. Item drops will occur at the end of each match. This includes any special rewards, dyes, and armors.

    The "Load out"

    • The current format for "load outs" will be Weapon, Suit, Kit(Offhands?). That said, Medic is not gone. As you know, you will still be able to play a "Medic" using medic like offhands, but there will be no dedicated healing gun/weapon. The example Erez used(In relation to Recon in Global Agenda) was: Stealth can be an offhand(apart of a Kit?) and you will be able to wear different suits that affect movement speed and protections. I guess this will be easier to understand once closed beta comes along.
    • Jet pack will be utilized for jumping more than your traditional Global Agenda flying mechanic.

    Weapons

    • Weapons(and offhands?) will have special attributes like slow, immobilize, stun, damage over time, poison, etc.
    • There will be no shared Power Pool. Ammo and Clips will be implemented.

    Game modes

    • Objective based: Siege, Push, and Control.
    • 5v5 is the priority but 10v10 and Raids(PvE?) are likely to follow.

    Important

    • If you are interested in Closed beta, Erez said he will log onto Global Agenda to see who is interested. This doesn't mean log on GA and AFK in hopes of getting into Closed beta. You will just raise my ping >=(. Just keep in mind he didn't say that this was the first place he would go to find closed beta participants.

    • They will see about streaming a play test next month. I want to conclude closed beta in early December...but it all depends.

    It would be nice if Hi-Rez would let us know when they plan to set up the new Global Agenda forums. Reddit makes my eyes bleed.


    EDIT: Or at least give us a subforum here.

    We'll probably get one when Alpha/Beta starts.

    Also, I edited my post to add some new information. Looks like the name they're going with is going to be "Global Assault"

    My only major concern at the moment is still the lack of strict classes. If this means Specs then ok, I can live with that. But classes? Rough business, that. I'm not spouting doom and gloom until I get into the beta and play the damn thing myself. Really wish we had a temporary subforum here where the few remaining agents can congregate.


    EDIT: Really glad Erez is possibly going to spoil on the SMITE stream. I might actually thank ACD just so that I can see Erez personally deliver us the news about GA2.

    Virtual Reality, Baby!

    Here are some screenshots of the remaining GA1 community banding together to show their in-game support for the Spiritual Successor to their beloved game. Thanks to: XDJoelDX, MYASO, Mistertats, Wolvel, Sternengambler, Chris, and anyone else I may have missed that participated.

    Nice . And yea, a lot of the community are having mixed feelings with the news about classes. It was one thing I really enjoyed about the game.

    And no dedicated healers also has me pondering what they're planning with off-hands and items. Hopefully we won't have to press "R" 50+ times each match .

    There is nothing you can really play at this point other than co-op pve. The removal of the eu server didn't help either.

    That being said I am looking forward to this new 'spiritual successor'.
