How would you like it to play out?

For me, maybe being a little ambitious with my wishes here, would need a new engine to make it a reality but......
I would love to see it play out on the scale of Planetside 2, think of the battle scenes from Starship Troopers. Oh Yeah.....

    ... and then imagine being a skulk in that fight. ;)

    Honestly, I'd just like to see the final pieces of the NS2 puzzle put into place before worrying about NS3. There's life in this old dog yet, provided we get some performance boosts (among some tweaks to stop gameplay getting stale).
    For all your gorge busting needs.
    It is very strange how some1 who spend so much time makeing videos to help mans, can fall and take miror image of dark ages bourgeoisie, outdated set of belifs
    How True.

    I'd like to see ns2 properly polished and its gameplay "finalised" first.

    However if NS3 becomes a thing, I'd like to see a slightly larger, terrain based game with the same rts/fps principle. Instead of fighting over res points you'd fight over small bases/fort areas of strategic importance. They could be fortified by either side and of course could include a res point within it. I'd say 64 player max, which works well for other fps games that have open gameplay.

    New alien lifeforms would be obviously needed due to the more open/larger playing field. Combat would still be very much player v player, gun v mouth, but each side could have some form of squad transport. Marines could have some kind of space jeep and aliens a large lifeform that could transport smaller/slower life forms (larger/faster lifeforms wouldnt need it).

    Oh, god, make the pain stop. Have you learned nothing from the experience so far?

    Ok, here is the problem. Every game, the aliens,in a pack, harass the marines to slowdown resource captures. The aliens save up for invisible, double armor rhinos. Everyone evolves into an invisible double armor rhino. The marines lose.


    Also, a good rule of thumb is that a rookie is equivalent to an empty player slot on a team.

    If they make an ns3 I'd want them to abandon ns2 and just have ns3 be a direct improvement on the engine, but I don't think it will happen and don't want an ns3 to happen

    A single player campaign would be great... but that's the stuff Activision and EA can churn out on a yearly basis because they employ teams of well above 500 developers...

    I think it is still far too soon for ns3. Ns2 wasn't in the works until 2006. NS had been out since 2002. I would rather they polish ns2 and hopefully branch into other games and show us what they are capable of while still maintaining support for ns2.

    if they stick to their engine it should be a multiplayer game again. you cant speed map levels with the sdk, unless they improve it a lot.
    right now there are only 2 games (as i know - ns1 & ns2, savage 2) with a real hybrid fps / strategy gameplay style,
    so it would be probably a hybrid of this kind again.

    Aliens vs other aliens? Thinking Zerg vs protons instead... Maybe a prequal where the kaharra already destroyed an advanced civilization...

    Would it be a bad thing if UW was bought and a much larger team developed - still involving UW guys - NS3 with an existing well functioning engine?

    You play as a skulk Detective named John Danger McBadass and you've seen it all. From busting Gorge prostitution rings run by mafia hive minds, shutting down a resource sludge smuggling operation run by fades using oni as muscle, to stopping terrorist lerks from poisoning delicious humans to prevent consumption by orphaned baby skulks. The scum of the galaxy won't rest until you're dead and you're all too eager to leap into action and take a bite out of crime.

    Coming way too soon, it's Natural Selection 3.

    NS3 released late 2014. Finally done balancing mid 2018.

    In the end the Marines jump higher than the Skulks, the Fade costs a lot and hurts a little, oh no wait that's NS2.

    NS3 should be a Casual game released on Mobile platforms utilizing Micro-transactions and Targeted Ads to shift the Big Data Paradigm to the Cloud to enable best of breed analytics and push holistic and Hyperlocal Value Add Solutions and move the industry into new revenue streams... synergy... umm... Brand... and so on.

    Intel Core i5 650 OC @ 4.1GHz

    Sounds like Lucas's draft for the next Star Wars.....
    The new posts that pop up daily by some guy with 3 hours playtime who knows how to perfectly balance this game already make me want to vomit - PaLaGi

    I think there's really some solid ideas here, would like to see these fleshed out.

    And @Chikun everytime I see your dang avatar I crack up, then get creeped out. Sometimes in opposite order.

    I would prefer a new project untill ns2 is getting really old.
    However if ns3 pops up soon then i would like it to focus on underwater world.
    Where gameplay is vertical, marines start at the top of the sea and aliens at the bottom.

    Don't take the route xcom is going. We would have to wait another 15 years for a good game.
