If you've read through our previous post "Nexus V1, your torch has been passed" (and if you did, cookies to you!), you'll notice that I teased at a gamemode by the name of Gladiator Arena. So, I thought I'd tease you even more ;) I mean, it is an idea I came up with at 2am in the morning, SO WHY NOT HYPE IT UP.
Let's start with the basics. What's it about?
Simply put? PVP. Straight, good ol' fashioned vanilla PVP.
Obviously, I can't give away how the game is actually played as it's not released just yet, but I can tell you that if you're a fan of PVP, you'll have a very hard time not loving this game.
The game will last around 15-20 minutes or more and will consist of five rounds. You'll understand how rounds work once the game is released, but only teasing for now!
Each server will pack a whopping 32 players to a lobby, with the end result obviously declaring a single winner. We may add a team-based alteration of the gamemode later on, but for now, you will not be able to team with anyone but your own skin.
Enough with the teasing. Show us more!
Upon release, the gamemode will have three maps you can play on built entirely by Kara (pwincessly) and I. We'll definitely be making more, so if you have any ideas be sure to let us know! Each of the maps consist of four main islands and a fifth island that isn't shown. Here's the three we have done so far~
I rate my paint.net skills an 8/8, mate.
So, when's release!?
We intend to have the gamemode launched for testing hopefully the end of next week, but we'll see how things progress! I will admit that I may be hyping this up because I'm pretty proud of how it's looking so far, but I think you'll all love it as well :)
Be sure to keep in touch with the server and our Twitter on its progress! GET EXCITED! :D
