Mars: War Logs, the science-fiction RPG unveiled in video!
Mars: War Logs, the action RPG developed by Spiders for Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and PC download, has been unveiled today in video!
Mars: War Logs offers a wide variety of quests, tactical dynamic combat, and extensive character specialization through different skill trees and a complete craft system.
The Silk Engine, the powerful graphics engine built by Spiders, breathes life into the Red Planet. The in-game sequences in today's video give a glimpse of the exciting quest that awaits players on Mars in 2013! Mars: War Logs will be presented at Gamescom 2012 in Cologne next week at the Focus booth in the business area (Hall 4.2, Stand I-050a), alongside another undisclosed game from Spiders that will be unveiled for the first time.
Mars: War Logs takes you to the red planet over a century after the catastrophe that threw the planet and its colonists into chaos. Water has become the most precious resource on the arid planet with a few companies fighting a perpetual war for its control. In the middle of this struggle, players take on the role of Roy Temperance, a renegade with multiple talents, and plunge into a thrilling cyberpunk RPG on the Red Planet! Players develop Roy and his combat style by choosing among dozens of skills and perks, and fight for his life in dynamic real-time combat against the fearsome creatures of Mars. The crafting system lets players create and modify equipment to maintain an edge over enemies. Dialogue choices as well as actions and decisions made will influence the destiny of the people Roy
crosses paths with... and perhaps the fate of all colonies on Mars.
@Sdarts: Heat is a barrier both for PC and consoles. We succeed in making things smaller, but it's the heat barrier that has to be overcome. (11 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: there needs to be a breakthrough in transistors before a huge next step will be possible. The next consoles will not have the power of a gtx980ti simply because of heat problems. (11 Hours ago)
ThouThough only a few people would be able to run it, even among PC gamers, which is not viable financially. Hence why I'm thinking of the next generation of consoles. (12 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: Yes, but I meant that even now PC can do so much more. If an amateur can do that much with an injector in 7 days, you can bet DICE can do 10 times better with the source code, engine, etc (12 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Of course you can do more with more powerful hardware. (12 Hours ago)
But at the end of the day, that's not feasible. Consoles is where the vast majority of sales are, so first we need more powerful consoles, which in turn will drive PC titles' technologies forward. (12 Hours ago)
@droezelke: Crysis 3 will be a 3 years old game in February next year, and it's still one of the best - if not the best - looking games. I agree AAA companies could do much more with PC titles. (12 Hours ago)
