While attending Macworld San Francisco 2010, we managed to take some time to stop by the Ngmoco offices to see what they had in the works. The first update they revealed is that their popular first person shooter Eliminate Pro will be getting a new mode of play in version 1.2.

In addition to Deathmatch, Ngmoco will be adding Co-Op play which will allow two players to work as a team to take on battle drones. As the story goes, Arsenal Megacorp has become infested with rogue battle drones and your job is to clear the infested facilities.

At least two new maps will be introduced alongside Co-Op mode and you and a parter will be fighting off 3 different types of droids as well as bosses. Your job is to survive and clear out the drones before time runs out (3 minutes). Co-Op mode carries over your same equipment and armor as Deathmatch mode, but also adds a "loot" dropping system where droids may leave behind items beyond the usual credit drops. While many of these items may be short lived prototype weapons or armor, the rare loot drop may provide you with a persistent item to keep.

Players can play with a friend or get thrown into the usual matchmaking system. Meanwhile, Enemy droid capabilities scale to your skill level to keep things interesting.

The 1.2 update is said to be nearing completion and should be ready in the next couple of weeks. Eliminate Pro remains a free to download game.

    Love love love this game!

    Can't wait! I'm currently lvl 47 so only 3 more levels to 50! If you don't know... 50 is the magic number in Eliminate because the "Pro" weapons are available to you.

    Item drops are a great idea! Plus, the friend system is much more relevant now.

    Wow. This mode sounds fantastic.
    'Cause the normal game is nothing for me since full of pros without a life (which is again normal for every online multiplayer game). I want to have fun, not just being cannon fodder. So, co-op with my buddy against bots. Perfect!

  • Diablohead

    NgMoco you really know how to pull me back to playing Eliminate :P

    It loosely reminds me of Gunz, which started off as a DM game online and after some time had some modes going against npc mobs and bosses, and to see Eliminate getting such a mode is very nice.

    I just hope some of the rare drops are power cells, even if they are hard to find...

  • Adams Immersive

    Great feature! Even people with older/slower devices may join in more freely, since being mismatched against a partner isn’t nearly as bad as being mismatched against an opponent!

    • Tim

      The mis-match problem stops at level 45 - or if you can reach a skill level of 4,000 or more. At that point, players stop the "skill down" exploit and just play. The only advantage that you can gain is by purchasing one of the "Pro Weapons" - ie: level 45 is not eligible while 50+ is, which gives a firepower advantage. Additional levels from there just mean that the Pro Weapons will be more upgradeable.

      But the playing field levels out pretty well after 45.

    Glad I kept my commitment to ELIMINATE Pro. This update is going to be awesome. Co-op is a perfect addtion to it; and implementing the same matchmaking will be nice because you know you can most likely depend on your partner. My preference is co-op so for me it's great to have an option to work as a team and still reap the benifets of gaining credits and other perks. Man I cant wait to see this in action.

    Thank you ngmoco for yet another great addition to my favorite Fps (next to CoD: WaW Zombies) ^_^!

  • RhythmMan

    Can't stand Eliminate, but this gets my attention. I might be willing to try the stuttery framerate and unbalanced game again if there's co-op. At least there won't be people exploiting the power-up glitch against me, they'll use it against the bots.

    I still will NOT play the messed up regular game though.

    • Tim

      I don't understand why some people talk about stuttery frame rates... if you have a bad connection then yes. If your opponent has a bad connection, then yes.

      Otherwise... the game runs like glass on my 3GS.
      What device do you have?

      • RhythmMan

        3g, and it's the same problem over wi-fi or 3g. If it works better over 3gs then yet another reason it's unbalanced. But people with 3gs should enjoy their advantage, co-op won't be an issue since we'll be on the same side :-)

      • argh01

        I've got the older 3G model (not 3GS), and I only experience 'stuttery' frame rates when my internet connection dies. As long as there's good 3G reception or wifi, this game is smooth as silk. Ngmoco has a winner here, in my book :-)

      • weirdy

        It works fine on my ipod touch 2nd generation. Only when im in an area with bad wifi does it become choppy. Anyway, GO ELIMINATE!

    • XlR8Do0M

      What do you mean by powerup glitchs? It's near impossible to die by powerup glitch. The only time it's happened to me was when I stalled and was shield bashed...

    I really think they should fix the frame rate before they add co op. Co op is a great addition but I'd rather have a game where it doesn't look like someone keeps on teleporting then a game with co op.

  • dumas1000

    Where are the new weapons? 2.0 refers to new weapons with completely reworked models. That means were not just talking pro weapons or prototype weapons. I realize they can add them in at any point, but the description for 2.0 shouldn't include the fact that Ngmoco claims to have added new weapons that clearly do not exist.

    And I'm not convinced that this mode will be much of anything. I hesitate to play PvP if there are less than 1000 people on the server, because I know that the matchmaking system relies heavily upon numbers. If people mode away from PvP and over to Co-Op in mass, then PvP will be ruined. And I can't imagine that the AI in Co-Op will be particularly smart or engaging anyway. At best, they will have overpowered equipment. And the matches are still only 3 minutes. And it seems like a cheap loot fest to me. Which, may actually increase the number of people playing PvP, believe it or not. Everyone will want to use their cheaply acquired loot in PvP mode. Which could throw the balance of the game, which is already tedious at best, further out of alignment. I'll be getting my butt kicked in PvP mode by people who have acquired cheap Co-Op powerups.

    Look, it could work. But I'm still skeptical. If this doesn't increase the overall user base, and only succeeds in fracturing the existing user base, then it was a dumb idea. I want to see 3000 online, 2000 playing PvP and 1000 playing Co-Op. I don't want to see 2000 online, with 1000 people playing each mode.

    And Eliminate is useless and unplayable over any 3g cellular network. I feel sorry for people who are stuck on 3g. I can't believe anyone who has played even 1 match over wi-fi would ever go back to 3g. All that beta testing in Canada didn't seem to do much good.

    If you have a jailbroken phone, then you can play BIA 2 online MP, using a 3g connection, and it works flawlessly. Virtually no lag. NOVA also works flawlessly. As does GT: Motor Academy. But you have to be jailbroken first.

    • wrathandhavoc

      Don't even talk about NOVA, the gameplay is at best sketchy. Just because it has larger maps and a wider range of weapons does not mean that the monogomy isn't intoxicating. Even Nazi zombies for the touch is better despite clear flaws in its control scheme. I personally think that the co-op mode is just what eliminate needs actually. At least for the unskilled player. It's not a bash, but truthfully, even being 31st in the world high skill at one point, I even have trouble with kill stealing fags like strakhov or simply getting ganged up on in matches for instance. So back up your claims if you intend to make them.

    I love this game! I've only been playing for a couple hours but im hooked and level 5. I haven't been able to use the co-op, though. If you don't have anyone else, then it just punts you in without backup, and you get owned by the battle drones. they are evil. i die about 5 times a minute w/o another player.
