An RPG from Spiders Studio, The Technomancer is releasing on June 21 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4. A release date wasn’t revealed for Xbox One or PC.
Playing as Zachariah, a rookie Technomancer from Abundance, one of the powerful corporations on Mars, you’ll pick one of three combat stances, as explained by Creative Director Jeanne Rousseau:
- The combat with the staff is based on mobility and damage, using sweeping blows against groups comprising several enemies.
- Fighting with Blade and gun requires agility, dodging, and controlling the pace of combat with the nail gun.
- Finally, the Blade and shield combat style focuses on defence, blocking and parrying to inflict heavy damage in response to an attack.
Since Technomancers are able to use destructive electrical powers channeled through their implants, you’ll be able to combine them with your weapons to boost the damage, or create an electricity shield to boost your defense.
