Now don’t take this to mean that the game is bizarre. As the trailer for Spiders’ upcoming action RPG indicates, Mars: War Logs indeed takes place on Mars. And there is plenty of strife to be had, with authoritative cops reminiscent of the fiends from the first Red Faction to grimy landscapes galore. Then some girl shows up, and becomes a blonde while the protagonist uses lightning.
Anyway, clubbed into the “cyberpunk” genre, it’s due to release for Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and PC in Spring 2013, Spiders promises a wide variety of quests, tactical dynamic combat, extensive character specialization through different skill trees and a complete craft system.
The game looks good overall, though we’d be interested to see just how the combat plays out, and figure out just what the hell is going on. Stay tuned for more details going forward, and in the meantime, check out the first trailer below.
