Today, we are taking you for a trip far away from Earth, over 200 million miles from here. The new role-playing game from Spiders Studio, Mars War Logs, shows a new side of itself through a splendid new video exclusively made of in-game footage. Guaranteed 100% Dubstep-free, this first trailer is supported by bewitching music that contrasts with the strong images of the video: the survivors of the great cataclysm that hit Mars, who have retreated into huge slum-cities and are subjected to the dictatorship of the guilds controlling the planet’s most precious resource, water.
Mars’ first trailer presents the cyberpunk universe, where the technology and violence of a decadent world clash with supernatural creatures, mystical characters and out-of-the-ordinary powers.
Today, we are off on the trail of Roy “Temperance,” the hero of the game. The war for water that pitted Aurora against Abundance has come to a close, and Roy finally returns to Shadowlair, Aurora’s capital city. However, he will not find home there. The city, now under the grasp of the mysterious Technomancers who use their powers to lead with an iron fist, has become a dictatorship against which a handful of resistant civilians fight for survival. Caught in the crossfire, and labeled a renegade, Roy will have no choice but to choose his side, and take arms once again.
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 and 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 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 all colonies on Mars.
Our take: The trailer looked amazing and the graphics were beautiful for a downloadable game. Also the girl looked a lot like Rihanna :) We can’t wait for the first gameplay trailer, but till then Mars War Logs is on our watch list.
Mars War Logs will be released in Spring 2013 on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and PC.
