The id Software announced officially that the long-promised invasion mode had been slain because the pandemic impacted the development. This feature of the game kept getting pushed back for different reasons. The invasion mode will be replaced by a brand new single-player horde mode.
“As many are aware, we intended to release a free Invasion Mode update for the game. However, the unforeseen consequences of the pandemic and remote working impacted the progress of development for this addition.
Over this time, we have also seen and heard how many of you enjoy the range of gameplay and combat available in the expansions and master levels. With these factors in mind, we have decided to redirect our focus from Invasion Mode to creating a totally new single-player horde mode.
We’re confident this horde mode will offer you more of the diversity and challenge you’re looking for in the game. In addition, the team continues to work on a refresh of Battlemode that includes a more competitive, rank-based structure, several gameplay and balance updates, and another new map. We expect to share more information at QuakeCon in August”.
