Spiders, developer of the upcoming space RPG The Technomancer
, have released a new trailer and plenty of details to show off the companions in the game.
Each companion will have their own story and motivations. To that end, they will regularly ask you for assistance in the form of a personal quest. These questlines can be extensive, adding to the depth of your relationship with them. That relationship is important and can be nurtured by making the right decisions - each companion has their own moral code and they will let you know if they agree or disagree with your actions.
Of course, combat is a factor as well. You'll be able to bring two characters with you into battle. These companions have specific abilities and strengths and weaknesses you'll need to consider. They also have special skills, such as lock picking. They also have their own experience bar to level up and their own inventory. Picking the right abilities and providing proper armor will be fundamental. To top it off, you'll be able to visually see the armor you equip, so style is a factor.
You can see it all in action in the video below:
is coming to Xbox One on June 28th.
