Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Ryu ga Gotoku Studio
If video games have taught us anything, it’s that our future will be dominated by man-killing machines. Case in point: Binary Domain, a new third-person squad-based shooter from Sega and Yakuza’s Toshihiro Nagoshi, is yet another cautionary tale of robotics gone awry. In 2080, in the midst of a world wracked by climate change and resource shortages, Tokyo finds itself under siege from an army of robots led by cyborgs known as hollow children. As Dan Marshall, players will lead the R.U.S.T. crew through ground-level slums and the high-rise homes of the wealthy in their hunt for the source of the hollow children.
Sega will be releasing a demo for their upcoming squad-based third-person shooter, Binary Domain, tomorrow on PSN and the day after on Live. Scheduled to come out later this month, on February 28, the Ryu ga Gotoku Studio-developed title puts players in the shoes of squad commander Dan Marshall in a near-future Tokyo besieged by sentient robots. The demo includes two of the game’s earlier missions, offering players a chance to try out the Consequence System, in which they interact and influence their teammates by using voice recognition in and out of combat.
