MindJack Gameplay and Tutorial Video

By dropK1CK ninJA, 8 years ago
MindJack is one of those games that gets announced, with a little summary of the story line about the game, and then goes dark for a while. Square Enix has very little information about it and their website is not very helpful. A little summary about the setting and story for the game from MindJack's website:

A new era. Sophisticated and complex technologies are now contributing to the advancements of mankind. However, the world's governments are crumbling, new corrupt powers arise and conspiracies proliferate. The truth behind the proscribed technology could destroy the very core of humanity. Join a rogue team of agents as they fight for survival and entangle themselves deeper into the mystery.
Aside from the teaser trailer, Square Enix has finally released a video showing off the gameplay and how hacking is performed in the middle of battles. It appears to be a seamless integration as you leap and abandon one body behind to take over and control a new identity.

The gameplay seems a little unique, could lead for some interesting puzzles, but is only shown off in battle situations. You can all ready notice some AI issues where as soon as you inhabit an enemy character, the surrounding enemy characters already know you are there. I was hoping you could play some deep cover scenarios and hide behind an enemy's face.

MindJack is supposed to be out in October.
