    If you look in the top right of the picture of the new metroplex image you can find info on escalation

    Its kind of blurred but you can make out "we also got to try out some of the re-designed cooperative multiplayer mode called Escalation.Too se our hands on [???] escalation in action [???]" - thanks to undeadmonkeyguy and mechafire for being able to read this

    Metroplex looks sort of like a white version of with a different head.

    Smart move, escalation is the best mode. I wish there was a single-player option beyond just hosting your own game and trying to fight off the hordes that way. It's fun for a while, but I never get very far before I get dog-piled.

    i hate escalation; never made it past wave 15. it takes a full round of ammo to kill one enemy, melee is inconsistent, you don't get assists for kills, the overshield enemies are way overpowered, and when you are revived you keep 1 block of life and are likely to be downed as soon as you stand.

    Hopefully they realized that Escalation was; whilst fun, cheap as shit. Enemies happily abused the transformation invincibility they had whilst firing non-stop and the game mode in general made the campaign on hard look like a cakewalk. It says they modified it, so maybe they toned down the difficulty. Or at least included the option to change difficulty.

    The most frustrating part is that the enemy seemed almost aware of it, and would use it to close the distance on you and unload point blank.

    That just means you're not good at escalation. You need more practice man.

    It's a horde mode. Do you want to live forever? :)  It's all about planning and cooperation so you can make it through and past wave 15. It's supposed to be difficult, maddening, yet addictive so you keep playing. If you're downed, you're supposed to have a team that will not only pick you up, but make sure that you can make it to a health station.

    They really should give point assists for kills, I agree. Although I've played escalation enough that point totals aren't all that important if you have people on your team that are spending the points wisely between opening doors and equipping the team. Survival is the most important thing.

    I'm hoping they nerf the cloakers slightly. That might be unpopular to say, but I think the cloak is *too* good, and should require more skill to use to escape a horde. I also hope they make any area outside the actual arena cause you to lose health so we can eliminate some of the glitching.

    But above all, I hope this is true that escalation is really coming back. I don't like how its been shrouded in mystery since FoC was announced. Escalation is one of the best horde modes going, imo, and deserves a chance to be upgraded and improved.

    All you can read is "Escalation..." and "Escalation in action..."
    It therefore is not confirmed. It is, however, likely to be in the game if they're mentioning it. Unless they're mentioning it to say it's NOT in the game.

    EDIT: Dammit I missed "We got to try out a special competitive mode called Escalation"

    You have got to be kidding me. THAT'S FULL OF WIN!!!
    Damn, the guys at High Moon listened to the fans, and in return, they have pleased a bunch of fans.
    I can not express my emotion right now.
