I could have sworn there was a thread for this, but I’m not finding it so I’ll assume for now there isn’t and we only ever talked about it in the E3 and Switch threads.
A new trailer dropped today, which was excellent, and worth sharing:
Since this a new thread, I’ll describe what this is here in brief for those that maybe don’t follow E3 and/or Nintendo/Ubisoft joint games!
The basic gameplay isn’t readily apparent yet, though we know there is some sort of hub and “worlds”, but the combat is the real star, along with a fantastic and very entertaining story co-starring. Combat plays out in turns, and in fact is lifted nearly directly from modern XCOM. There are 8 characters to create a three-man fire team with, and each character has unique skill trees and weapon upgrades, and based on the trailer above as well as some gameplay videos featured just earlier this week by press that were able to play some of the game, there looks to be a good variety of enemy types and tactical decisions to be made. It sounds like while it starts off fairly easy to get into, it ramps up and becomes more and more layered and complex as the game moves forward.
It is supposed to feature co-op gameplay as well, though I don’t think it’s been shown how exactly that works. I’ll drop some links to a few videos I saw parts of over the last few days, these guys talk a little more in-depth on what exactly is going on here. Seems to definitely be one to keep an eye on.
