La storica serie action adventure di Fear Effect si prepara a risorgere con il nuovo progetto portato avanti da Sushee e Square Enix
Gli autori di Sushee ci propongono delle nuove immagini di gioco di Fear Effect Sedna, il nuovo capitolo di questa iconica serie action adventure divenuta popolare tra gli appassionati del genere sulla prima, gloriosa console PlayStation.
Il progetto di Fear Effect Sedna trae ispirazione dal lavoro svolto dagli autori dei primi capitoli della saga pur adottando un sistema di gioco diverso, con visuale simil-isometrica e movimenti a turni all’interno di una mappa suddivisa in riquadri pieni zeppi di nemici, enigmi ambientali, trappole e quant’altro possa venirvi in mente immaginando un improbabile ibrido tra un film di 007 e uno strategico d’autore come XCOM o Divinity.
Il lancio di Fear Effect Sedna è previsto entro la fine di quest’anno su PC (Steam), PlayStation 4 e Xbox One.
Queste sono le informazioni forniteci dai Sushee sulle pagine della campagna Kickstarter di Fear Effect Sedna lanciata con successo nella primavera dello scorso anno:
- Fear Effect Sedna is set four years after the events of the original Fear Effect game, and things have changed for the team. Hana, freed from the Triad, lives with Rain in Hong Kong and works as an occasional mercenary, while Deke has grown apart from them since Glas returned to the US.
Hana accepts a small mission for a shadowy organization asking for her services. Her target: a mysterious ancient statuette held by the Chinese ambassador in France. She sees it as a good opportunity to visit her birthplace… But this ‘easy’ mission is about to lead Hana to something way bigger than she expected.
Meanwhile Glas is approached by a client who catches his attention enough that he soon sets out for Greenland.
How will these events bring the old team back together?
Fear Effect Sedna is dedicated to recreating the atmosphere and characters from the original Fear Effect. However, while there are familiar aspects of the game to previous incarnations of the franchise, you’ll find yourself immersed in a completely unique and new world with Fear Effect Sedna – one that will appeal to fans both old and new.
Even though the gameplay of Fear Effect Sedna will be very different from the first episodes, exploration will remain an important part of the game. Treacherous angles will still be part of the experience: each character has a limited field of view, and you will only see a portion of the environment at a given time. You will have to trust your eyes, but also your ears, and react quickly to avoid being surprised!
Fights will occur very often in the game. Up to 5 characters will fight various enemies in real-time. But the events will inevitably split the team sometimes, changing the whole strategies depending on who you command at a given time. Strategy, positioning and understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each character will be essential. But don’t worry: you’ll be able to pause the game whenever you want to plan your next move(s). Choose wisely…
Puzzles are an important part of the Fear Effect series. Fear Effect Sedna will be no exception! You will sometimes need to unlock a door, disarm a trap, and to do so, you will encounter various puzzles mixing modern components such as hacking, electric wiring, but also more mysterious brain-teasers involving symbols and Inuit carvings.
