Description

This map pack's goal was to add 3 new maps that have multiple routes that can, and must, eventually be taken. You will be running all over the place trying to round up those swarm eggs in an intricate, without being an actual maze, level.


Tired of One-Path maps?
This map pack's goal was to add 3 new maps that have multiple routes that can, and must, eventually be taken. You will be running all over the place trying to round up those swarm eggs in an intricate, without being an actual maze, level.

Installation
Extract the archive into C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\alien swarm\swarm\addons and load the pack by going to Options->Addons in-game. You can then select this campaign instead of the default Jacob's Rest campaign.

Notes
These map packs use that awesome default "kill X eggs and X drones" ruleset. I can change it, but I rather enjoy it. After all, we play this game to slay hordes of aliens, not to feel a deep story. Even on easy the hordes are quite dangerous in this map pack.

Not finished.

1st map is good, we had to set it to easy to complete it, but it was a bit repetive with the same rooms with the same egg placments. And you don't need a tech (the map requires you to have a tech), you can go around the locked door or shoot it down. For that map its 7/10.

Second map we encountered a hole in the wall, wich you fall to the "bottom", no way to go back to the map. I found 2 of those in the map, maybe its more (its hard to navigate without a map). And then it was too easy at the elevator, compared to the first map. You had to hunt after bugs to kill to achive the "Kill 100 drones". I had to activate the L4D AI Director to complete it. 2/10 (liked the darkness, flashlight got useful, otherwise 1/10).

And then the third map, no logical way where to go, just long corridors. After a while when my friend and I finally found the eggs, we had to run around looking for the elevator, wich took a while. And when we had to defend there, the bugs only came from 1 small corridor, wich made it too easy to defend. 1/10.

And by the way, when you try to call the elevator, it says that you have to kill 200 drones before you can do that, wich is wrong (the objective is to kill 100 drones). Overall I say 3/10. Not worth the download.

sorry bout the hole in the map, i did not find it.

As for the layout complaints, the maps are meant to be difficult to navigate, aka nonlinear.
