    Survival mode?

    Post by Johnthethird on Wed Mar 06, 2013 10:39 pm

    I know this is a sketchy topic, but I think that from could pull it off. Imagine being in an area like the forest with one or two summons. But enemies are constantly coming.

    The ents are continually sprouting out of the ground in random locations, loads of other enemies are constantly climbing up from the cliffs, occasionally a really tough enemy like a black knight will walk in through the fog door, and more and more forest enemies will keep coming at you. to make the matters worse, occasionally another person will invade to give you hell.


    There could be a survival mode for each area.


    Some people may say that this goes against the souls theory of memorizing enemy positions and stuff like that, but I still think that it would be fun, and it would help with learning how the enemies individual attack patterns are. It would add a different feel to the game because normally the enemies only attack you if you get near them but now they will seek you out.

    I really hope there are never any modes in any of the Souls series games.

    I agree. If that happens then the game has shifted from misterious make the best of a hostile world situation to a select what you want to do. Also it would be a massive soul farm.

    Isn't that kind of similar to Gravelording, except with NPC's? silly

    Sounds like an arena option in all areas. I'd say I like it, but it would mean that the devs held back in the ordinary game.

    It doesn't have to be a mode, people. Don't you remember the Nito Babies? That is already a pseudo-survival mode because they are the only mob to infinitely respawn.Would I like a Survival-esque zone?

    Yes, as long as it is part of the PvE progression.

    you're implying that there could only be one way to do it. It could just as easily be a mode where you do not get souls.

    Or a seperate mode from the main story where you open your character in this world instead of in the story world.

    Sepertate mode from story. WHAT THE HELL this is exactly what is wrong with the idea. Atmosphere killing is what one guy said and that is exactly what it is. If you want it you should play on PC then ask someone to make a mod for you. An area with repawning enemies isnt too bad an idea but really i think survival mode is more fitted to games such as borderlands which focus on teamwork not dark souls.

    I don't think there should be any real "modes" in the Souls series. I do, however, think that if they added an arena in Dark Souls 2, they could have Survival as an alternative. I mentioned it in another topic months back about arenas. It wouldn't ruin the game with "modes" either, as there's already 1v1, 2v2 and FFA available, which, is you'd count Survival in the arena as a mode, you may as well count those as modes too.

    Outside of any arena, i don't think it should be available though.

    They could also just add a new area with infinite spawning mobs, like the Baby Skeletons, but, well... not babies.
