Can't come soon enough.

This looks excellent! I'm impressed.

loving it

So, when someone launches Bullet time, does it slow down every players game or does the said player just float in the air slow mo while others run normally? I'm confused of how bullet time could work out in multiplayer ever.

Posted by seannao

@Icemo:

as I understand it, if you come into line of sight with anybody in slow motion, you enter slow motion, too. Otherwise, you're in normal speed... Somebody correct me if I'm wrong please! haha. Not too sure.

I want it alot!!!!!!!

BURST!

Posted by Jumbs

Eh. The best part about the previous games were the (admittedly shallow) stories. They were just so well done, and to think multiplayer is being shoe-horned in to stop resellers is depressing :(

Posted by Alphazero

Looks excellent, but I'm still hoping for horses that spawn halfway in the ground and spasm until you kill them.

Programming is hard.

@seannao: you are correct

Slow Mo in Multiplayer??? What...?

Looks like Red Dead Maxdemption to me.

Yea that is how it works. Along with, if you are in Bullet Time, anyone who you can see or can see you enters Bullet Time along with anyone who can see those people. It's a crazy web mechanic, they explained it in a preview on a different site, can't remember where though.

you mean a really fun and solid multiplayer with loads of cool feature and game modes ?

Posted by oneman_nohorse

@Icemo: Bullet time is viral. Once someone initiates bullet time, anyone in the vicinity will go into slow mo as well. The difference is the player who sets off bullet time gets the aiming advantage while the opposing players get really sluggish.

And that was such good multipla.... wait......

This actually looks interesting. Will be fun to see how it actually plays when the game is out.

@Jumbs: You know that RockStar has put in multiplayer in all of their games, right? They are hardly "shoe-horned."

Did somebody say BURST!?

Posted by Argo15

Looks cool

Posted by Drazat

looks ok although its out at the same time as Diablo 3.

Posted by hbkdx12

look a lil too hectic for my taste. 
 
I'm also not a fan of how the bullet time is seemingly handled although admittedly i don't see how it could be handled any other way without having unfair advantages and such. 
 
Conceptually it just seems like if one person activates bullet time that everyone might as well be in bullet time too
 
If person A sees person B and activates BT, their both in slow mo. If Person C sees person B, they go into slow mo too. If Person D is looking at persons C....and so on and so forth. Don't know how long the BT lasts or what not but it seems like it just creates a daisy chain of everyone being in bullet time because with how hectic and run n gun the game is, it seems unlikely that there are going to be huge gaps where your not looking at someone or someone isnt looking at you

That was pretty epic!

To be honest, Red Dead Redemption's multiplayer wasn't at full fault of it's actual gameplay design - it was more a fault of the setting. The huge Western open outdoor landscape isn't a whole ton of fun to shoot each other in. It was fun to ride around in horses and such for a little while, but that of course doesn't last long.

These urban settings and building designs in a modern landscape should offer a much better experience.

Posted by Sooty

I hope the shooting in this game isn't let down by janky movement, like GTA IV and RDR suffered from.

Posted by chan05

The aiming looks very sloppy and frustrating

Posted by Bucketdeth

Seems similar to Killzone's Warzone mode.

Posted by AURON570

What's with everyone running around in the open asking to get shot? I guess this game is more run-and-gun type shooter, but parts of this trailer just made me burst out laughing.

Posted by D_train_lives

This looks pretty cool i could see the crew wars thing being pretty sweet. I home it has as much customization as UC3 did.

Posted by MikeGosot

I like how Max narrates the matches, but it could get boring FAST.

Bullet Time: New worst multiplayer shooter mechanic. Calling it.

Man I accidentally put my age to young in the age gate and I got this message "You're to young to watch this filth in the video.Go to church instead " ha ha ha I love GiantBomb

@D_train_lives: ya it looks relatively deep, easy to learn, but hard to master

Boy, that blood looks like strawberry jelly.

This looks delightfully stupid. I'm interested.

It looks like they've implemented it well enough, doesn't look more crazy than the other 'bursts' they are doing.

Posted by Yorkin

Can't wait for Max Payne's single player, but yeah, even after watching all these vids, I'm still not really interested in the multiplayer. Wasn't a big fan of the multiplayer in GTAIV or Red Dead either so... there's that.

Edited by TorMasturba

For a moment a minute into the video I could have sworn I was looking at a third-person version of the COD: MW2 multiplayer map, I forget the name of it.

Also, this video did nothing for my complete disinterest in most samey multiplayer experiences these days. I mean not everything has to have a multiplayer, and why is it that most games have multiplayer modes that don't do anything different with the multiplayer capabilities? I'm tired of death match and king of the hill, think of something better guys. L4D was a breath of fresh air damn it! Take precedence from it!

Is it still 35GB of pain?

I'm guessing you never played Stranglehold online. Goofy and laughably bad.

You're out of your mind, this is the best use of bullet time in multiplayer I've ever seen. Go look up other games that have tried to do the exact same thing and failed.

You're saying that past failure is an indicator of future success?

I'm saying every other time I've seen it it always looked like a weird gimmick they were forcing into the multiplayer, this actually looks like it could work well.

It sounds like it benefits the user and punishes everyone else. To me, that seems like it would get very tiresome when it's popping off three or four times in a round.

It's set up so that whoever sees it is put in bullet time as well, so I could pop it off with a bunch of guys behind me, letting them easily line up a headshot. From what I've seen, it looks like it will only punish enemy's who cluster together, which would make it no different from throwing a grenade.

And 3 or 4 times in a 10 to 15 minute match isn't a lot considering the effect only lasts about 6 or 7 seconds. And maybe it instantly stops when the person who triggered it dies?
