Seems people got confused.hagorize wrote:Just to clarify, this is not infection. You wont turn into a different team that a human controls. The flood will infect your dead body and the AI will take over, using whatever it was that was on your body. Even Covenant bosses can succumb to the flood. The flood can take over vehicles and bases. It would be like dropping a third team onto the battlefield. Everyone will have to really work together to kill the infection and try to take the enemy core whilst not having the flood take your core. This will be nothing like infection in arena.
Loving the potential of this idea. Overly powerful REQs would be a bit more risky to use.
A threat to both teams and the Ai, forcing all three to focus on the greater danger could be interesting.
Also, I want to eventually see more flood forms. Infected grunts, jackals, and- Well, anything, really. Could be awesome. Infected brutes and drones. Maybe even some infected wildlife. I've seen some cool concepts for flood infected animals in Africa, for Halo 3 that people made, such as elephants. Which are creepy as hell.
