I feel a bit disappointed they didn't even show the queen or as a much more shocking and intresting alternate explanation would be to have eggmorping confirmed as it makes more sense and would be slightly more ALIEN oriented than ALIENS.Does anyone agreeXeno126 (talk) (Contribs) 17:16, January 22, 2015 (UTC)
- The development team have confirmed there was a Queen, they just didn't show her. I can actually understand that, for the reasons given in the trivia section on the page.-- LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:11, January 23, 2015 (UTC)
- Well, ideally we should have pages for all notable Hives, but only this one's been created so far.--Toa Quarax(Talk) 03:43, June 26, 2015 (UTC)
Is the Queen ever heard?
- I vaguely recall Creative Assembly suggesting the heavy breathing sounds you occasionally hear in the Hive might be the Queen, but I could be wrong there. Either way, you certainly never hear her screeching or moving around or anything.-- LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:10, July 18, 2017 (UTC)
- What heavy breathing are you referring to? The low drone sound or the ghostly sound that you hear throughout the Hive? For reference:
- What you could describe as a breathing sound can be heard at https://youtu.be/Q4V9-iYjK1I?t=1m56s, which might be what you're referring to.
- A few people also mentioned that you can hear her screeching when you activate the first conduit, but others say that same sound is heard several times throughout the game (including Axel's death apparently).
- At https://youtu.be/Q4V9-iYjK1I?t=14s through https://youtu.be/Q4V9-iYjK1I?t=17s, you can hear what might be the Queen screeching. Do you think it may be that? AnonymousOutlast (talk) (Contribs) 16:51, July 18, 2017 (UTC)
Only one Drone active?
The page mentions that only one Drone was active outside of the Hive. But there is no any evidence of this. In fact, considering how often the player encounters the Alien in the first half of the game (while moving through different areas of a huge space station) it's highly likely that there was more than one Xenomorph roaming the station. Also the last missions of "Safe Haven" and "Lost Contact" DLC's (which takes place right before or during Amanda Ripley's arrival to Sevastopol) have two Xenomorphs hunting the player. And in general it makes way more sense for the Xenomorphs to have at least a few Drones scouting the area and harvesting new hosts than just one.
- It is possible and quite likely you are encountering more than one but this is already mentioned in the trivia section I believe. Also the canonicity of those expansions may not include certain gameplay scenarios as if Ricardo or Axel actually encountered two Xenos, they would have mentioned it plus Waits believes they have saved the station after ejecting one Xeno. If Ricardo saw two, he wouldd have mentioned it to Waits, who then would not have been so relieved after the gemini expulsion. Few or one Xenos roaming around is not lorebreaking as Xenos go dormant if there isn't any threats/hosts and there weren't many left on the station, so the xenos were probably dormant with one or two being left to roam as guards and to deal with potential threats.
- Now the travel thing is a little odd I agree and the station is massive, so the idea the creature is keeping up with you is hard to believe but you got to ask, are you really travelling far? I can't recall if you do travel throughout but I got the impression that maybe we are just exploring only one tower of sevastopol. -- The Cruentus(Talk) 13:59, February 12, 2018 (UTC)
Disappointed that we didn't get to see the Queen, she didn't have to play a huge part, just like being able to see her in an inaccessible part of the hive or something. Stretching it, something that would of been (imo) quite cool and terrifying, having the Queen hunt you for a brief moment in the hive, either before you try to destroy it or on your second visit. --The Creature Slayer (talk) (Contribs) 00:34, October 22, 2018 (UTC)
