The Eternal Crusade Team is back to show off the New Tyranid Invasion mode – Lock & Load, we’re Bug Hunting!
This is an unedited version of the Twitch livestream. We’ve skipped to the 30:00 mark to avoid the count down timer:

The First few gaunts die to withering fire.
A Tyranid Warrior approaches!
Sorry about the blurry screenshots from this video – turns out the Tyranids won’t sit still for picture time. I highly suggest skipping to the 49:30 mark at watching it in full 1080p to get the full experience.
The basic break down is that the players start at a muster point and then they open a door to a section. The players clear out that section and open a door to the next. This repeats a few more times with the areas getting more difficult or the mission parameters shifting. It reminds me a lot of the new Underground mode from The Division. I’m actually really looking forward to this simply because it’s a good change of pace from the regular PvP big battles.
It’s still all Early Access – footage and everything else is still subject to change!
