New gameplay trailer of Beacon

New gameplay trailer of Beacon

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.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (50 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: Yeah, give it time. (2 Hours ago)

    b0vril Loading taking too long? Why not buy a shorter loading bar!! (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And plenty of those examples are online PVP games too. Quake Champions probably isn't one of them :D (9 Hours ago)
