"If you freeze the copter it drops out of the sky and smashes in the ground. Takes a bit of damage but more than that: opens itself"

"The plan is to toss debris and flip cars when a big ram occurs but it's not happening yet."

"Way I understand it, we'll be tossing out new vehicles and characters as the year goes on."

"You CAN switch vehicles in a game either by dying or suicide."

"No, you can not get out of the vehicles in TM. Cycles, copters, cars, trucks and more BUT no on foot."

"We originally wanted drivers and gunners to make the car combat feel more realistic. It became clear very early that
# since Team MP is key AND since we had so many other things to do, that building 32 characters was prob not the best way to spend resources. "

"Local MP will be a very strong aspect of the new TM. We would never abandon it. It's a KEY aspect of any TM game"

"Standard split and online free for all will be there. And you can pick between all the cars to battle. But in that mode, each car will be driven by 1 of the 4 chosen faction driver/gunners...you will not have 16 unique characters for each of the 16 vehicles.  To us, the vehicles ARE the characters, especially in multiplayer. Made more sense for us to focus on the game and levels and such vs. modelling and animating 16 different in game characters + gunners (32 total), most of which would look like normal peeps from beind camera."

"The stories and world and characters are VERY important to us. BUT the bread and butter is MP so made more sense to put mucho effort into the levels and design and modes and balance vs. tons of time making more and more factions that really don't affect play"

this is the way Ive always felt about the game. Glad theyre thinking along the same way. These are interesting tweets. We should keep updating this on this thread maart. I cant bother myself to sign up for the damn thing myself.

"If you freeze the copter it drops out of the sky and smashes in the ground. Takes a bit of damage but more than that: opens itself" -"for a turbo ram" 2nd part of that tweet.


I like the flipping of the cars if a big ram happens, I loved watching sweettooth flip in tm2 lol. I wonder what more there could be then copters, cycles, cars, and trucks..... We've seen some sweettooth mechs.


Spectrum, the faction thing is just something made up for the MP. SP will just be characters, from what I understand.

Excellent. Then my plan to freeze Talon players out of the sky is still a viable strategy. Freeze + turbo ram + power missile = death or near death I hope.

But, it seems like they are not going to have 16 different story characters in the single player? I'm still unclear on this but that's how it sounds. I mean, if they aren't taking the time to animate them in the MP then it would seem like that would mean the same for the single player?

Not necessarily.  They could just black out the windows in single player and each car would have it's own driver in story/videos alone.  Unless there is a gunner sticking outside of your passenger window even when playing offline, which I guess is very possible.

I don't know how they can show a gunner at all with only 4 character models unless they take the gunner out completely and just go "old school" with single player.

Jaffe said that SP will be like it has always been, single characters.  It's from an older twitter post, and if I can find it I'll post it.

Interesting because in the E3 videos you can clearly see the thing freeze in midair.

This is more interesting though.

Yes, but it's been mentioned in the another thread that Jaffe said they only showed the oldest stuff they had. I'm pretty sure right now they have already refined the mechanics and gameplay some more.

I'm loving the idea of ramming the copter more and more. It's not everyday you get to ram a helicopter!

Like Xizor mentioned before, it'd be fucking fun to ram Talon and others into the ground from a tall building. I suppose that'd work better with Roadboat.

"There is a question I keep getting asked a lot that I am ignoring on purpose. U'll see why eventually. Not being rude Smiley Gotta run! Later!"

This is David Jaffe's latest tweet, it's funny because about 5 minutes before this tweet i asked him will there be challenge and endurance modes in single player in the new TM.

Wonder what really happened to those two modes.

It would be nice to be able to snatch those damn Talon's out of the air via Roadboat's special and then launch the fuckers over to the rest of your faction buddies on the ground for them to unleash an onslaught like ravage dogs before it is allowed to take flight again if HP prevails enough to do so.

Talon is like that kid everyone hated and loved to pick on in high school. It seems like Jaffe wanted something for us to push around in MP while at the same time Talon users have to learn how to not be raped and use Talon at its maximum.. to play smarter in the air. That means, users down below have to counter that, which creates a balance between aerial and ground.

Of course there will always be noobs picking Talon thinking "durr I am untouchable in the sky." Rape imminent. Fuck, I can't wait for this.
