Grim futuristic worlds do love their large robots, and newly revealed third-person mech battler Synduality is not any exception to that. The sport’s a part of a “transmedia sci-fi franchise” being labored on by very bluntly named devs Sport Studio, in keeping with publishers Bandai Namco. The sport’s out in 2023, although. Swimsuit up and boot up by watching the trailer under.
In case you’re nervous about environmental collapse then I’d look away now. See, Synduality’s set in 2222, when toxic precipitation going by the quite highfalutin identify of The Tears Of The New Moon has scoured the Earth of most people. It’s turned some into creepy creatures that now stalk no matter’s left of our species, too. We’re compelled underground Matrix-style right into a protected zone, Amasia, which brings folks into contact with some AI known as Magus. Thus far, so sci-fi.
You play as a Drifter, working about trying to find AO crystals. They’re uncommon, and solely discovered on Earth. Downside is, Earth’s overrun with Enders, dodgy beasties that you just don’t wish to tangle with alone. Fortunately, the Magus AI will help you battle Enders and supply hints, warnings and concepts about the place to go. If you wish to enterprise to the floor you’ll have to do a Cradle Coffin. These are the aforesaid mechs. You’ll have the ability to personalise these by altering their look and loadouts.
All this sounds nerdy as heck on paper however, in motion, Synduality appears to be like fairly cool. The mech fits zip round at an honest tempo, and there’s some nifty trying weaponry on your Drifter to let rip with. Bandai Namco say there’s co-op multiplayer in addition to single-player, which may see gamers serving to one another or, extra curiously, combating for sources as an alternative. You possibly can catch a glimpse of a few of the mechs working collectively to take down Enders within the trailer above.
Synduality is coming to PC, together with current-gen PlayStations and Xboxes. It’ll be coming to Steam someday in 2023. There is no web page up but, however you could find out extra on the official web site right here.
