Focus Home Interactive has released a new trailer for Spiders' The Technomancer. This trailer focuses on the game's companions who will assist players as they make their way across Mars.
In The Technomancer, each companion will have his or her own story, motivations, and development dependent on decisions made by the player. Meeting a companion and having them join the party will initiate a new string of side missions that will play alongside the game. Playing through these missions and performing favors for the companion will increase their affinity with the player, futher changing story elements and opening up new gameplay options in the process.
Simply completing these missions aren't the only way to influence companion's opinion, decisions made during normal gameplay will spark different reactions from different companions. Each companion has a different moral code and straying too far from that can adversely impact to the relationship, to the point that the companion may leave. However, making agreeable decisions can boost the relationship further, even into romantic territories.
During gameplay, up to two companions can join the player at any time, complementing his or her fighting style with their own. Each companion levels up with the player and has their own inventory, allowing each of them to be fully equipped in the same manner as the player.
The Technomancer will be available on June 28, 2016, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
