Following on from the gameplay trailer
released earlier this month, developer Two Tribes have released another video for their upcoming run & gun title RIVE
. In this video, the team look at a new concept they are working on where 'Worker Drones' use their ability to destroy asteroids. Check out the in-depth details on the upcoming concept as well as a video showcasing the asteroid destruction in action:This is a concept we're working on for our upcoming shooter RIVE. Basically we added so called worker drones (placeholder art) that homes on large asteroids. Once when see one, they will tag it and alert a missile silo. That missile silo will then launch a BFG-like missile to annihilate the asteroid. Make sure you're not in its path :)
The asteroids can also be killed manually, but then they will break-up in smaller pieces. So what strategy would you choose? Wait for the workers to do their thing, or kill them and try to do it all yourself?
remains scheduled for an Xbox One release in early 2015.
