Focus Home Interactive and developer Spiders have released the pre-E3 trailer for The Technomancer, their upcoming sci-fi RPG. Using the riveting classic song, “House of the Rising Sun” to illustrate the Martian landscape players will journey through, the trailer gives viewers a closer look at the narrative themes we can expect.
Mars is a barren wasteland that is home to the forgotten children of Earth. On the surface, warring corporations fight wars from their massive domed cities for one resource: water. Underground, hidden between the crags or in unexplored valleys, you will factions struggling for their own profit, or mutants permanently changed by the sun’s radiation and hated by the rest of humankind.
Players will play as a Technomancer named Zachariah– a formidable warrior harnessing destructive electrical powers. Along with their companions who can be interacted and even romanced similar to Mass Effect, players can choose between diplomacy, combat, or trickery to complete quests. Defeating enemies and completing quests gain experience to level up your character, where you can learn new skills or upgrade perks across 4 unique skill trees. As a further layer of customization, the crafting system enables players to create more powerful equipment and weaponry for themselves and their companions.
The Technomancer releases on June 28 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. But before then, we’ll be getting some up close and personal time with the game at E3 next week! We’ll be finding out as much as we can then and bringing more updates. Let us know what you want to hear about in the comments and we’ll be sure to get answers!
