Default Will SS3 multiplayer have more enemies or just more HP

as per the title...i read somewhere that the enemies will be tougher in multiplayer, but will there be more of them?

Ie. with 16 players, I would imagine more HP but also 4-8x the # of guys

what do people think?

Regards,

Sanjay

I'd take it they'll make the same approach to it as they did in the previous games. Which had some extra enemies in MP, but not a lot. I would love to see them multiply the enemy count for coop like InSamnity did though.

We'll find out soon enough i guess.

I think exactly as in HD remakes (don't remember how it was in the classics, and simply don't know how it was in SS2)
as in - full customization: set extra MP enemies on/off; set extra enemy strength/E.E.S. per player to a desired value - form 0 (off) to *a lot*; or all those things at the same time, etc.

So, in short, it could be said: "However the player decides."

The HP might be the only thing, that changes, because of the improved graphics, and the destruction.
Im sure, there still will be LOADS of enemies though.

Enemy spawn multiplier must be in to keep things entertaining. With 16 players shooting Minigun, only a hundred of spawns may stop the chaos.

If you think that cna slow down the game... make it optional, but ADD IT. Insamnity and Serious Violence proove it's teh way to go.

I've seen mentioned in a few previews and stuff that the enemy numbers will scale up the more people you have playing, but these have been short one sentence mentions.

I hope Croteam hasn't abandoned this. I can imagine the bad framerate you would get with 16 players playing with so many enemies though. I would expect them to talk about the enemy scaling more. That's what makes me doubt if they still have it to the degree they might have had it at some point in development.

"However the player wants" sums it up pretty much. They will add slightly higher enemy count obviously for 16 players at once but I think beyond difficulty heath adjustments that will be it. It will be up to the player to do things like that(i.e Insamity! 3, SV2, SS Body Count, etc.)

Keep in mind that this function is trivial to implement. If a spawner has "double in serious diffuclty" option, simply scale it with some number, like 25% per player (configurable). It does not involve intense coding or game redesign.
