With more ground maps appearing in the pipeline, i would think that its a right time to start talking about a ground vehicle..like the Argo

Almost none of the maps are large enough to warrant vehicles. And even if they added them in the far future, you might not enjoy the way you will have to require them (Open up wallet!).

Never going to happen, although a nice thought.

Reminds me of an old post about this and this design:

Would be a LOT of dev time
and probably would simply create a "vehicle combat mode" like space combat

A ground vehicle would be fun, but we've already seen what can happen when a new variant of combat is introduced.


I'm talking, of course, about shuttles. Shuttles use different groups of enemies, as they can't handle normal multiple-frigate groups. Ground vehicles would presumably use new enemies, or a larger number of normal ground enemies. Shuttles also use normal space maps, but ground vehicles would pretty much require maps built just for their use.

Anyway, shuttle content has been slow coming, partly because before this season you had to change out at a starbase before using them at all. Of all the missions in the game, only 3 are for shuttles: the Vault, Vault defense, and Operation Gamma. Even without fundamental challenges on the maps themselves, making missions for a somewhat 'novelty' content type is slow. Normal ground and space content will always get priority.


Not that these reasons would prohibit ground vehicles or missions made for them, but it shows that any such attempt would likely be the only content of that type for quite a while. So I wouldn't expect a whole 'third' combat type any time soon.
