    Well maybe they will have some sort of unique behavior. I bet the reefbacks were pretty lame at first, too.

    Hmm dunno... They are a bit too "Earth-like" for my taste. Don't get me wrong though, a blue whale lookalike would be cool, but it should set itself a part from our blue whales in ways other then just being a glowing whale.

    By having it be a somewhat different shape, but still "whale like" perhaps? The Reefback kinda has that going for it, it basically looks like an alien whale tentacle beast :D

    Unless they want to say this is where the whales from Star Trek were taken after Kirk brought some from the past, I dunno if it fits 4546B.

    I'm pretty sure that the "earth whale" model is a place holder. I believe that it will look like the glow whale concept art

    I think the video is unavailable. I'd never turn down another creature for this game though, the more the merrier I say.

    The devs have confirmed that the glow whale is a test for that concept art.

    No. No. We don't want Whales, we want whale Analogues. Same goes for penguins. No penguins. Maybe something that takes the same ecological niche as a whale or penguin or whale, but no Whales or Penguins!!!

    What'd be much more satisfactory is a reason for wanting to stay above the ice layer in certain parts of the Arctic due to terrifying enemies beneath the ice in said biomes which would tear any vehicle to shreds. These microbiomes would be really deep and bland and void of interest. But above these biomes would be wrecks or degasi land bases or something interesting which would push the player to traverse over the ice unlike the rest of the game. So they'd have a vehicle like a cross between a cigarett boat and a snowmobile which could go extremely fast and glide over water and jump over icebergs like ramps and then land on the ice without serious damage.

    Aaaand then there'd be something like the creature from Europa Report which melts through the ice or just leaps out of it at the player's vehicle out of nowhere- or it's probably be somewhat visible beneath the ice. It'd generate enough heat on its exterior to make separate little pools in the ice from which it could leap and chomp on anything that comes by it.

    Yay, but ONLY in case if it speaks to you about some ancient guardian of all life forms right before going into eternal slumber among the icy waters of Antarctica (I highly doubt anybody would get the reference here, but it still MUST be placed here)

    A good first attempt, but will need to see the final product to make an opinion on it.

    I want it to be similar but yet different to the Reefback.
