Wild Ones multiplayer unleashes unlimited kills

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...
wild ones respawnTraditionally, Wild Ones was a game of survival. Players were given one life, and the winner was the last man standing, regardless of the amount of kills they had accumulated. Players would abuse this by teaming up and hiding in corners, waiting to emerge and finish off the weak players who had been battling it out. The winner was often not the most heroic warrior, but the sneakiest manipulator.

As a result, Wild Ones has made a number of changes to the core multiplayer gameplay. Most significantly, the match winner is no longer determined through the method mentioned above. Now, the winner is the courageous pet who has the highest score by the end of the match. A pet's score is the est number of kills minus the amount of times they died. For example, if in the time limit I got three kills and died once, my score would be two.

This change also means that once a pet dies, they respawn at a different location on the map with full health, and continue playing. Therefore, there is no limit to the possible amount of kills during a game. The default time limit for games is five minutes but that can be extended for even more exciting deathmatches.

Players are rewarded for being more aggressive but still penalized for dying, making every decision a crucial one. The deathmatch-style gameplay also uproots the common tendency for pets to unfairly team up once in the game.

Although we like the new changes, the element of survival present in the old settings did appeal to us. Despite the various exploitations, it made for some seriously exciting matches. The addition of respawns diminishes the value of your pets life, perhaps making the game less compelling.

Nonetheless, as dedicated Wild Ones fans, we're willing to give this new unlimited kill-filled gameplay a shot. As seen above, clearly our skills carried over and you can expect the valiant Pookie Manilla to be fighting it out with the revamped settings for a long time to come.

Head over to Wild Ones to check it out yourself.
