The upcoming RPG from Spiders and Focus Home Interactive that features terrifying space monsters and humans who can manipulate electricity at will seems to be shaping up to be a really interesting project. The latest trailer gives a rundown of the setting, basic story concepts, and gameplay features.
After some tantalizing glimpses of the world and some intriguing words about the lore, the devs begin to detail the combat mechanics, enemies, factions, and choices available to characters in most situations. Each combat stance has its own in-depth skill tree to level, along with the skill tree for the player's electrical technomancer powers. Several new enemy creatures make their debut in this trailer, too, and they have intriguing designs. As players progress, they will have to make choices that affect hoe different factions respond to them. In turn, this also affects how companions react to the player and aligning with certain factions can result in companions leaving entirely. We catch glimpses of the cast of potential companion character near the end for the first time.
At one point, the developers mention that they estimate that The Technomancer will take most players up to 40 hours to complete all the various quests and storylines.
The Technomancer releases June 21 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
