Level Generation Question
So far there are 5 levels Roanoke PD, Cyprus Park, Estates, Barlowe Square and Pioneer Express(my personal favorite) . So what I want to see is an indepth look into the RNG stuff and "procedually generated" stuff. I mean is it check points is anything wildly different or are we going to be hitting the same paths every level from what I have seen from the beta/alpha nothing changes for PD it is always the same path through. So some fleshing out of what "procedual generation" means, might be nice.

PD changtes quite frequently. I've played about 20 hours. Yes, you will run into the same variation oftne. It is not easy to have like 200 different randomly generated layouts of the same map.

I think there are 3-4 variations of each map, some are small variations though.

Quite a bit more in fact. Either you're very unlucky or have watched the same youtube video more than once. There are numerous paths and objectives, same with extraction, and hunted is just random spawns and paths.

I dunno, I've played each mode at least 10 times and noticed generally where eveyrthing will be, or the variation just isn't easy to notice.

Yeah you tend to find those special situations that are extremely unlikely. Don't know what to say. Roll of the dice is what it is.

*4 levels.
Tatsur0  [developer] Oct 5, 2013 @ 2:12am 
Actually you only see 3 with 1 using 2 game-modes. We showed 5 in the trailer.

Ah nice, so that fifth coming in an update or is it from the planned DLCs?

It is not part of our future content packs no. It will be released as soon as it's ready :)
