Mars: War Logs, the action RPG developed by Spiders for Xbox LIVE,
PlayStation Network and PC download, has been unveiled today in video! Mars:
War Logs offers a wide variety of quests, tactical dynamic combat, and
extensive character specialization through different skill trees and a
complete craft system.
The Silk Engine, the powerful graphics engine built by Spiders, breathes
life into the Red Planet. The in-game sequences in today's video give a
glimpse of the exciting quest that awaits players on Mars in 2013! Mars: War
Logs will be presented at Gamescom 2012 in Cologne next week at the Focus
booth in the business area (Hall 4.2, Stand I-050a), alongside another
undisclosed game from Spiders that will be unveiled for the first time.
Mars: War Logs takes you to the red planet over a century after the
catastrophe that threw the planet and its colonists into chaos. Water has
become the most precious resource on the arid planet with a few companies
fighting a perpetual war for its control. In the middle of this struggle,
players take on the role of Roy Temperance, a renegade with multiple
talents, and plunge into a thrilling cyberpunk RPG on the Red Planet!
Players develop Roy and his combat style by choosing among dozens of skills
and perks, and fight for his life in dynamic real-time combat against the
fearsome creatures of Mars. The crafting system lets players create and
modify equipment to maintain an edge over enemies. Dialogue choices as well
as actions and decisions made will influence the destiny of the people Roy
crosses paths with...and perhaps the fate of all colonies on Mars.
