My first Sony game of the event and what I’m easily going to call my game of the show (for Friday at least). My lengthy hands on began two or three chapters into the game. A small three man team that I was apart of arrived to the aid of a female team member and a local police officer who were under heavy fire.
I was quickly introduced to the cover mechanic (that is exceptionally similar to that of Gears of War or even Fuse) as well as an interesting weapon. Oh my it was a blast to use. First I will share a quick history of the game. A reinforced feature of the game is that it takes an alternate history approach to the Industrial Revolution. Giving our team or Order access to weapons and artillery the likes the world has never seen, even for today’s day and age. There has been murmurs of a centuries old battle but Ready at Dawn Studios are remaining exceptionally tight lipped.
This weapon I used had two firing methods, one was a peppering system where I overwhelmed the opposition with pellets that produced a gas cloud, the second method is the igniting system that essentially ignites the gas and scours your enemies. I also found an exceptional tactic of firing a small amount of pellets, igniting then firing more pellets to engulf the flames and take down larger groups of adversaries.
