The Technomancer debuts its first gameplay trailer

More On: The Technomancer

If you can say one thing of French developer Spiders Studio, it's that they persevere. Their last few games, Bound by Flame and Mars War Logs had high story ambitions but their gameplay was middling at best. Now they are trying again with The Technomancer, and they just delivered the first gameplay trailer.

The Technomancer has Spiders Studio returning to Mars, although it's uncertain whether this game is related to Mars War Logs at all. You play as a member of an elite cyborg class that keeps order between the megacorporations ruling the planet. The most precious resource on Mars is clean water, and the underclasses are starting to rebel.

The word I would use to describe The Technomancer is "confident." After the stumbles with their previous games, Spiders Studio looks like they learned from their past mistakes and now they're making an exceptionally competent action RPG. The in-depth skill tree piques my interest, and the art style is gorgeous; I really like the alien creature designs, which remind me of the bonkers stuff in Xenoblade Chronicles X.

We won't have to wait long to see if The Technomancer fulfills its promises. The game arrives on PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 21st. 

The Technomancer, the sci-fi roleplaying game set on Mars, now has a new Gameplay Trailer that introduces you to the universe and delves into the heart of the deep RPG experience.

The Technomancer: the Sci-Fi RPG unleashes its Gameplay Trailer!
The game will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 21

The Technomancer, the sci-fi roleplaying game set on Mars, now has a new Gameplay Trailer that introduces you to the universe and delves into the heart of the deep RPG experience.

You play as an apprentice Technomancer, Zachariah, who represents one of the powerful corporations warring for the most precious resource on the red planet: water. The Technomancers are formidable warriors, harnessing destructive electrical powers that are channeled through their implants. Your adventure will take you on a journey across Mars, where each decision you make bears consequences.

The Technomancer is a roleplaying game at heart and it starts from the character creation screen, where you will customize your appearance and make your first character development decisions. During the 40 hours of quests, you'll earn precious experience points, that will let you further develop your character through 4 skill trees tied to 3 different combat stances and your technomancer powers. These will help you face the many dangers of Mars: other human survivors and mutants, as well as the numerous hybrid creatures bioengineered by the first human settlers.

You will also learn talents that will be useful during the exploration phases. Along your journey you'll recruit many companions each with their own story, behaviour, moral code, special quests and talents, that assist you in combat as well as exploration. Steel yourself and your companions with better armor pieces and weapons, and further improve your equipment with the crafting system. All along your journey, you'll create a unique hero (or anti-hero) and story that reflects the choices, friends and enemies you made.

Embark on a big journey on Mars with the sci-fi RPG The Technomancer, available June 21 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Bandeau About the game
  The Game

Spiders studio is back with The Technomancer, a sci-fi RPG for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC set on Mars during the War of Water, where an aspiring Technomancer faces a myriad of questions as his future grows threatened by the secrets of his past.

Technomancers are "mage-warriors", who harness, thanks to an innate talent, destructive electrical-based powers, amplified by their cybernetic implants. Both respected and feared by all, they are fearsome warriors trained from a young age to fight. You are one of them, about to finally pass your initiation rite to become a fully-fledged Technomancer.

An RPG, The Technomancer will offer players action-oriented combat gameplay along four different skill trees, focusing on 3 different fi ghting styles and the destructive electric-focused powers of the Technomancers. But all situations aren't necessarily to be dealt with brute strength, with dynamic conversation dialogue playing a deep role in quests, changing the story depending on the decisions you make. Craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and for the companions you'll recruit along your adventure, nurturing relationships with them.

On the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet, you must undertake a quest that takes you through forgotten paradises, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars' dusty embrace.

Faced with the cruelty of Mars' iron-fi st enforcers and alien wild-life, can you survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer?
