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.
that's a pretty big deal, as its probably the biggest stumbling block for the tech. (37 minutes ago)
Stuff like inside out tracking and eye tracking, as well as motion sickness solutions should be in place. We've already got a product in development that claims to have eradicated that already (38 minutes ago)
The potential of it is massive. More so than what traditional gaming now is. Second gen is going to be very interesting. (39 minutes ago)
We're sort of being spoon fed bit sized "experiences" that either work or don't. I suppose that's part of the freshness of it, though. I just wish some big devs would get more involved. (40 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Ironically, though, the VR scene is also playing it safe. Too safe. There's not enough big risk titles like RE7. (41 minutes ago)
I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (3 Hours ago)
put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (5 Hours ago)
