Monothetic has released a new gameplay trailer of Beacon, the studio's sci-fi action roguelike revealed in March. You will die many times in this game but fortunately a Clone Bay will allow you come back with altered statistics thanks to DNA collected from enemies. The goal is to create a version of youself that won't die but beware of too much alteration. It's coming soon on PC and Xbox One.
If you can’t rise to the challenge, create a version of yourself that can.
Even with all the firepower in the world, taking on a hostile alien planet by yourself is a daunting task. Luckily, you have the benefit of being stranded alongside a functional Evotek emergency Clone Bay. Every time you die, integrate DNA collected from your fallen foes to alter your statistics until you’ve created a version of yourself that won’t.
Alter yourself too much, though, and the Clone Bay can create some… irregularities. Horns, luminescent growths, putrid sacks of pus where your feet once were; the more alien DNA you integrate into your system, the further you leave your humanity behind.
Your only hope to find your Beacon is to become something beyond human.
Beacon is a Sci-Fi Action Roguelike, coming soon to Windows, Mac & Xbox One.
like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (4 Hours ago)
you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (4 Hours ago)
@droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (4 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (4 Hours ago)
@droezelke: you use the standard controller or the elite? (4 Hours ago)
...the fiasco and dishonesty of the Xbox one reveal. (4 Hours ago)
In any case, Xbox one X is my main platform now. Network is good, performance is excellent, it's very quiet, downloads are pretty fast, controller is great. MS did a good job after ... (4 Hours ago)
