Square Enix revealed a trailer for its upcoming TPS called Left Alive last night. The game was introduced earlier this week with few details. You won’t find a ton of new information in the video. However, you’ll have at least a better idea about the game after seeing it.
You’ll find your character starting in a place called Novo Slava in the year 2127. The area is war torn and an exhausted character emerges from a mech. From there, you’ll see about 15 seconds of actual game play including pretty standard third-person shooter mechanics. How the introduction of mechs as well as the “typical” shooter style will mesh remains to be seen.
It’s unlikely you’ll have to wait too long since the single-player game is expected to be released in 2018.
For fans of Japanese game development, several well-known folks are involved:
- Toshifumi Nabeshima (Armored Core)
- Yoji Shinkawa (Metal Gear)
- Takayuki Yanase (Xenoblade Chronicles X)
