We'll showcase all three levels over the next couple of Mondays leading up to the game's March 25 release, beginning today with the game's sixth mission.Fresh offa daring escape from a freighter off the shore of the fictional post-Soviet republic of Lasria, protagonist Hayden Tenno swims to shore only to be confronted by a new threat: Stingers, metal-skinned monsters created by the Technocyte virus. Unlike the zombies he's faced so far, these beasts are fast, agile and able to leap great distances and throw shotgun-blast-like handfuls offireballs.
Luckily, Hayden's able to deflect their shots with a temporary bubble shield, which unfortunately isn't much use against the storms of zombie-like Howlers that follow in the Stingers' wake. The whole thing culminates with the first appearance of an Elite Trooper, a chaingun-toting Lasrian soldier in seemingly impenetrable robot armor. Check it out:
