You could spend this Valentine's week
buying flowers and making reservations, or you
could snuggle up with someone special and spend the night
slaughtering homicidal robots in a dystopic futuristic setting. Your
call. However, should you choose the latter, Sega will today be
releasing a demo for Binary Domain on the PlayStation Network,
followed by a version for Xbox 360 fans tomorrow.
demo will take players through two of the game's earlier missions,
set amidst the rubble of a futuristic Tokyo under attack from
sentient robots. Players will assume command of the game's main
(hu)man, Dan Marshall, and use voice commands to lead a team of
squadmates to victory and/or brutal defeat. In addition, Binary Domain's sneak
peak will introduce players to the title's Consequence
System, wherein teammates will perform differently in battle
depending on how much they agree or disagree with the player's actions and decisions.
shooter will also ship with a multiplayer component, which was teased
earlier this week in a new gameplay trailer.
Domain comes from makers of Yakuza. It was originally due out today,
but was delayed to February 28 in North America (February 24 in the UK). Prepare for the
robo-war by checking out the demo or studying our recent preview.
