    Anyone got any info on the new game types?

    Think there's capture the flag'king of the hill etc etc.

    Also can these games be played against AI opponents or only Human.

    I am playing Tribes2 just now and the AI can play all game types which is quite impressive.

    New game types:

    Last man standing - regular Shogun game. Last clan on the battlefield is the winner

    Capture the honjin - every clan playing has a honjin, or command area. The idea is to have one side ( attackers or defenders ) control all the honjins to win. You take a honjin by marching more men into it than there are enemies standing in it.

    Halve the enemy - First side ( attackers or defenders ) to kill half the TOTAL enemy wins.

    Assassinate the General - Kill all teh enemy generals on the field whilst keeping yours alive.

    Survive the siege - Defenders have to hold a castle for a certain amount of time. Attackers have to take it before that time limit runs down.

    King of the hill - A bit different this one. There's an area in the middle of the battlefield that's the target for all the clans. Only one clan can "own" the area ( I'll call it the hill from now on ), and they capture it by marching their general into it AND having more troops than enemy troops inside it. There's Either a point or a time limit to this game ( you can choose which one you want when you creat the game ). The side that has the most points when time is up ( if it's a time-limit game), or reaches the point target first ( if it's a point limit game ) is the winner. Every time a unit is defeated ( thru death or routing ), it's resurrected and brought on as a reinforcement. That way, if you get your general killed, it's not game over, you just have to resurrect the unit by getting it wiped it out or routing it.

    These are all Multiplayer only options, although there are special conditions similar to these for completing the battles in the single-player historical campaigns.

    Uh... you can play Survive the Siege now with the game as is. Just throw up a game, defend a castle and put a timer on!

    The new formats sound great, but can we play them against the computer?.

    The new game types are multiplayer only, so you can't play them against the AI.
