Today, Focus Home Interactive takes us far away from Earth and onto the world of Mars, setting of the game Mars: War Logs, currently being developed by the Spiders game studio. Showcasing the in-game imagery of the game, the trailer (guaranteed 100% dubstep free) shows the games’ protagonist, Roy Temperance, walking the streets of Shadowlair, capital city of Aurora. All is not well in the city, and a mysterious group of people called the “Technomancers” control the planet, and all of its water, with an iron fist.
Mars: War Logs takes place in a cyberpunk universe filled with mystical characters and supernatural creatures. Technology and out-of-the-ordinary powers clash on a decadent world plagued by violence, and though the war for water that pitted the factions of Abundance and Aurora against one another is over, fighting continues as bands of resistance fighters rise up from the slums to try and overthrow the Technomancer’s dictatorship. Roy is caught in the middle, and must sooner or later pick a side that will shape the very future of Mars.
Mars War Logs plunges you into a thrilling cyberpunk RPG on the Red Planet. You will develop Roy and his combat style by choosing from dozens of skills and perks: pure combat, stealth & trickery, or the fierce Technomancer powers…the choice is yours! The real-time combat system requires both reflexes and tactics, while you battle fearsome opponents and Mars’ most terrifying creatures all in dynamic combat. The crafting system lets players create and modify equipment to maintain an edge over their enemies. Dialogue choices as well as player actions will influence the destiny of the people Roy crosses paths with…and perhaps the fate of Mars.
Mars: War Logs will be released for Xbox Live, Playstation Network, and PC in spring 2013.
