Though it may not be the most high-profile of upcoming games, Mad Head Games and Prime Matter’s sci-fi third person shooter Scars Above has looked promising since it was first unveiled, and each new showing has continued to build on that promise. Ahead of its launch later this month, the game has now received a new overview trailer that details its story, combat, and more.
Scars Above will see players playing as Dr Kate Ward, a member of a response team created by the powers that be on Earth after a colossal alien structure known as the Metahedron in Earth’s orbit. An investigation of the structure sees Kate and her team being transported to a mysterious and hospitable alien planet- and as you might imagine, your goal now is to reunite with members of your squad and return home. To do that, Kate will need to unravel the mysteries of the planet itself.
Scars Above will task players with scanning plants, objects, and animals in the environments, and the data you gather from those scans can be used to craft a variety of alien weapons with unique powers and abilities. As you might expect, you’ll also be running into a variety of deadly monsters and alien creatures as well, each of whom will also come with their own unique weaknesses and attacks, prompting players to make smart use of their toolset and abilities to overcome challenges.
Check out the overview trailer below for more details.
Scars Above launches on February 28 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
