Giving "Jump Scare" a new meaning.

Jokes aside, I love that they chase the player all over the area (in the demo) and are not "territorial" like the Molded. Even if you try to hide in the house, they will still follow through the doors.

they started coming through the roof on my playthrough after i blocked the door

ID: gv049s4

I just went to the gate. Once you touch the gate, they back off and don't attack you or the other people during that cutscene. They just stand around and do nothing I guess.

"Honey! Gimme my shotgun, I'm gonna go fix the roof!"

They WHAT?!

ID: guyzqda

That sounds awesome. Here's hoping the more area specialized enemies are just as dangerous

ID: guzsk5z

When I played I didn’t know they were supposed to chase you, I ran through that field like an idiot then before I went in that house to progress one of the lycans just popped out of the corn or whatever it was. Like he was pretty close and I shot him a solid 6 times before stopping because he was just standing there, I ended up just walking away and continued the demo because he backed into the corn again lol

Fuck I didn't play that demo enough

I fucking love that they move easily which fucks with your anxiety lol

I like how they use cover. Animals in nature actually try to blend in with the environment to throw you off, and the fact that theyre hiding in bushes like that is really smart.

That's actually the monster's strategy to avoid being shot, you didn't know?

ID: guz100e

We joke but if that's programmed in it could be pretty effective when other lycans are around

ID: guz1431

It is a frustrating bug to say the least.

Smart strategy to waste your bullets

ID: guzc3ff

If that were me I would be panic firing just all over into the sky. They juked me out of so many bullets playing on HC.

He's trying to dodge your bullets...and its working

12 : Anonymous2021/04/18 18:54 ID: guzw7re

I mean if he keeps moving so fast that you waste all your bullets trying to hit him then it worked didn't it?

13 : Anonymous2021/04/18 19:45 ID: gv02j8q

He's the distraction.

He's showing off his sick jump skills so his buddy can come in behind you.

ID: gv06kyu

Lycan #1: Okay, I jump and take him by surprise, meanwhile you sneak up from behind and deliver the finishing blow
Lycan #2: Sounds like plan
Lycan #1: *jumps* Oh shit, he's got a gun!

When the AI is starting to have real fun, it's that it's really advanced.

After playing the demo I am definitely concerned about the AI. I had an enemy literally just stop attacking me mid-fight and it instead just stood around acting pissy rather than attempting to attack me or run away.

I legit just stopped firing and sat there for like 20-30 seconds watching the enemy stand and roar and act tough. Really kills the experience running into shit like that.

ID: guzbirp

strange. I didn't have anything like that. The enemies for me were trying to hide/ambush me a lot, especially in those bushy areas. What difficulty did you choose?

ID: guzk87f

I did normal/standard.

ID: guzhvgw

How odd, never saw that myself.

ID: guzm4jj

It's silly this comment is getting downvoted. Either way most likely just bad luck. I have NEVER played a game where the AI literally never did anything stupid. Even in RE2 I had a zombie just run at me and then right before getting to me ran in a circle.

ID: guzcjtu

I think it was an early dev bug. The wolf guy nearest to the NPC's house kept despawning and reappearing, and the first few times I thought it was on purpose. I looked away from him briefly and he was suddenly gone; it was perfectly panic inducing. He reappeared when I continued sneaking closer and then continued to blink in and out, and I realized it was just a programming bug.

Your guy's short attention span was probably a similar coding bug.

ID: guzkcg9

I hope it was a bug. I am extremely hyped for this game but the AI was really concerning for me. This is the sort of thing that could really bring down the experience.

ID: guzivop

I had the same thing but it was when I put down a mine, they were hesitant to come towards me, did you put a mine down?

ID: guzk6fq

No I didn't put down a mine. Was just standing in the open firing with my pistol.

ID: guznara

I agree, even during my playthrough (normal mode), they did not rush at me when I stood next to them, reloading my weapon. Hopefully in the release version they are more aggressive.

ID: guzrci3

Even if they aren't more agressive (which I could see being a thing on normal and lower difficulties) as long as they don't just STAND there taunting it will be fine.

It was just like the AI shut down which was concerning.

22 : Anonymous2021/04/18 18:27 ID: guzstwu

TBH, I see nothing wrong here. It's like animals circling their prey -- they know that you can fight back and hurt them, so they're trying to suss out a safe angle for them to attack from.

That's what I thought.

He confused you long enough so backup had time to arrive. That's a smart IA.

This looks like a bug, but OP said in a comment that it's decent

31 : Anonymous2021/04/18 23:25 ID: gv0ti54

It’s a pathing bug the Lycans can get but the demo was great, they bob and weave your shots and attacks. The atmosphere and character animations/face animations are absolutely incredible.
