    The Technomancer (PC/PS4/XB1)

    Developed by Spiders Games (Bound by Flame / Mars War Logs)

    Spoiler: show




    Due out in 2016, the cyberpunk game is set on Mars during the “War of Water,” where an aspiring Technomancer “faces a myriad of questions as his future grows threatened by the secrets of his past.” Your character is on the run from the “Secret Police” and must undertake a quest that “takes you through tribal communities, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars’ dusty embrace.”

    The game promises action-oriented gameplay with four different skill trees focused on three different fighting styles. Dynamic conversation dialogue will play a deep role in quets and change the story depending on your decisions. Players will also be able to craft equipment, weapons, an armor for both themselves and their companions.

    Features

    • A unique and thrilling science-fiction RPG experience set on the Red Planet.
    • Bond with numerous unique and interesting companions and reveal secrets about their past.
    • Manage their inventory and level up your companions.
    • Up to five different endings for many quests changing the conclusions and rewards – even the people you’ll meet and journey with!
    • A dynamic crafting system that changes the visual appearance of weapon and armor.
    • Play as a Technomancer – a combat proficient warrior with use of cybernetically enhanced magical abilities.

    New details
    Spiders' fifth RPG, The Technomancer, is officially revealed in detail in its First Contact Trailer. Slated for release in early 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, take a first look into the world of The Technomancer, and learn about the three dynamic and exciting combat styles:

    • 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 attacks!

    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.

    In the video, you'll see Zachariah fighting and exploring throughout the markets and shanties of Noctis, one of the major cities in The Technomancer, where over a hundred years of separation from Earth, new cultures, clans, and super-powers formed throughout Mars, causing clashes and in-fighting across 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. Romance your companions, craft, quest, kill, and explore Mars.

    June 21st
    Main Character

    Zachariah is a rookie Technomancer from Abundance, one of the powerful corporations on Mars. Technomancers are formidable warriors harnessing destructive electrical powers channeled through their implants.

    Your journey starts at Ophir, capital of Abundance, erected from the remains of the first human settlements in the Ophir Chasma.

    Combat Styles

    Picking from three combat stances, you’ll be able to specialize your style of play, making use of the Technomancer’s special electrical abilities to buff yourself or actively attack the many monsters roaming the red planet.

    The combat with the staff is based on mobility and damage, using sweeping blows against groups comprising several enemies.
    Fighting with Blade and gun requires agility, dodging, and controlling the pace of combat with the nail gun.
    Finally, the Blade and shield combat style focuses on defense, blocking and parrying to inflict heavy damage in response to an attack.

    Danger and Exploration

    Mars is a dangerous place, with deadly threats lurking around every corner. Whether you’re facing underworld mobs in the slums of Ophir, spy soldiers who seek to hunt you down, Technomancers from rival corporation Aurora, or the many mutated hybrid creatures roaming the canyons of Mars, you’ll have to think and fight tactically if you want to survive.

    Of course, your Technomancer talents can be combined to your combat style: electrify your weapon to boost the damage, or create an electricity shield to boost your defense… it’s also important to consider changing stances in the middle of a fight to gain an advantage!

    Visit cities scattered throughout Mars and learn of new cultures separated from Earth for many years.

    The gameplay trailer combat looked pretty rough and the revews that are out so far seem to mostly be in the 5-7 range. Think I'm passing on this until I can find it for $15 or less, but I definitely want to give it a try at some point.

    Getting a lot of Alpha Protocol vibes from it, which is also sitting at a sad 63 on metacritic, and I loved that.

    I liked Bound By Flame and Of Orcs and Men and no one else really did. If Grand Kingdom and Star Ocean hadn't come out today, I would have gotten it.

    A budget Deus Ex x Fallout x Witcher. Not good, but not bad. A filler title if you need something to hold you over between releases.
