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.

    nostradamus @Megido: errr... no. it has long cutscenes, yes, but there is a lot of meat to the game compared to say, MGS:TEA where you beat the game in less than 10 hours and there still is a lot of cutscenes. (4 Hours ago)
