I think this looks really cool. Can't really tell that this is the Crystal Engine. I was worried about how they would recreate their CG stuff with that engine after seeing Tomb Raider. Apparently that concern was unfounded.
Yep. Completely first person. However you can switch between 1st and 3rd depending on your preference, in DX3 so there you go. Still disappointed first person stealth does that 3rd person take-down stuff however.
" * Enhanced vision: See through walls, analyse structures for weak spots to smash through (so not all walls will be breakable, sadly)
* Mind reading
* Mind control: There will be social repurcussions for using this.
* "Icarus landing system": :Lets you drop from heights silently and safely, or if you hold the fire button, you slam into the ground and stun nearby enemies.
* Strength: As with Deus Ex, but also dampens recoil, and later on lets you punch through selected walls.
* Wrist blades
* Hacking module
* Mysterious splayed hand"
Supposedly 19 overall
"# Augmentations are bought with cash from "Limb Clinics," and once bought, they are then upgraded with XP to reflect Adam getting used to them. They start with basic functionality, but higher levels add extra features, rather than just making them more powerful. I'm fine with this system.
# In addition to your arms, there are 19 other augs to choose from (and it seems you can buy them in any order, as long as you have the cash - this is just the impression I get, however.) Each aug has 4 or 5 extra functions unlocked with XP."
"#You can pick up bodies - dead or alive, though I sense only "alive" if they're unconscious - and hide them.
#Guards can revive other unconscious guards."
Looks interesting, very Blade Runner-ish. I've never played the original game, though I vaguely remember buying the sequel and taking it back to GAME after about 2 days, but the setting and style sound great.
