The city biome will be excluse to Urban Warfare.
Thats kinda disappointing. Honestly thought the campaign woulda been alot more enjoyable over all, if it had actual city battles, instead of this oddly placed, random base in the middle of no where kinda thing.

So are the new city maps going to be career only?
It will presumably still be used for random missions/contracts (e.g. the "escort this VIP" or "assassinate this generic enemy leader." They just won't retrofit the already existing scripted story missions so e.g. the tutorial mission on Coromandir takes place in a city.

And they will presumably create some UW-exclusive flashpoints that use it.

It's just like the Tropical Biome from the Flashpoint expansion, which shows up in random missions regularly throughout a campaign game.

Attention Mech Mercs, How many of you will roll the dice with the randomization of your Mech Lance once UW drops? I plan on it.. thoughts?

I plan on generating a random starting lance as well. I like the idea of making work what we are given. If @stjobe can make 4 Locusts work, I should be able to make a starting lance work :).

I am just crossing my fingers I get at least 1 Urbie :D. I need a good Command mech.

Agreed the randomization lets fate fall as it may but I'll write the course. I'm for the ole trash can myself but odds are I'm going to have to salvage for one!

I've been wanting randomized starting mechs for career mode since that mode was added to the game.

@Packrat the best part is now we get it right off the jump on this new DLE. I'm stoked about taking it to the urban setting, looks challenging, and opens up new game play options.

The Urban biome looks like it has the possibility of being my favorite. I look at it and see lots of interesting ways to maneuver and work sight lines. I like that.

As in our campaign starter lance? We will be able to RNG roll it so we can get different mechs every time? That should at least shake it up a little.

Yes. Though, by default there will be some basic safeguards in place to ensure no one rolls 4 Cicada -2As. Modders will be able to easily change it to allow this if one wants however.

It's ECM/Active Probe that has me stoked. I'm so glad HBS decided to make it more substantial than a couple of percentage more difficulty to hit.
