The Technomancer Gets New Trailer, Gameplay Details - News

Developer Spiders has released a new trailer for its upcoming sci-fi RPG The Technomancer.

The trailer, which is titled First Contact, can be viewed below:

Spiders also revealed some gameplay details, including descriptions of the game's three different combat types:

  •  Staff: Highly mobile long-ranged melee to hit multiple targets.
  • Rogue with knife and gun: Agile, mobile, with dodges, rolls, and effective CC with the gun.
  • Protection with mace and shield: Parry, block, and beat them to death with powerful attack.

Each of the combat styles can be imbued with electrical Technomancer powers, buffing their damage, as well as Zachariah being able to directly use his skills in battle, electrocuting, knocking out in stealth, and pounding back his foes on the Red Planet...

It's not all about the combat, though, with a deep, modular crafting system changing the visible and active qualities of clothing and weapons from scrap you find on Mars. Cut off from Earth for 120 years, Mars is a world in conflict, with many different cultures and communities - and the games weapons and clothing reflect this quality, with jury rigged and make-shift weapons and armor, designed for survival, or militaristic rule!

From melee combat skills to active and passive abilities, everything can be unlocked and upgraded in the ability tree, where you'll be able to improve the games' three combat styles, and also your technomancer abilities as you level up and gain XP.

There are up to five different ways to finish quests in The Technomancer, and your choices will affect the story ending.

The Technomancer is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC next year.

I'm going to remain skeptical but will still keep and eye on it.

I'm guessing this is sequel (or re-imaging) of Mars: War Logs, which should be interesting. While that was not anything special, it had potential to grow to something pretty good, so looking forward to it.

Looks better than last they showed it. Tiny bit more optimistic for its performance now.

I absolutely loved Bound by flame and i liked Mars war logs. Spiders games always show incredible potencial but are limited by budget. I dont know how much better this will be, but i have total faith on this team to make a good game (their games are like old Bioware games).
Anyways, i can't tell wether this is a sequal or prequal. If we take events of mars as believable in every way, then this is a prequal because one of the companions on this game was "killed" on mars war logs. Theres always the remote possibility that he somehow survived.
I hope they make Bound by flame 2 after this. There was alot left undone on that game.
