Gamescom 2018: Left Alive Details and Screenshots

DualShockers and IGN shared their impressions and details they’ve learned after sitting down with Left Alive director Toshifumi Nabeshima and producer Shinji Hashimoto and getting an exclusive look at the 15-minute gameplay behind closed doors.

Following 3 protagonists, Left Alive looked to be more than a third-person shooter that is part mecha-fighting, narrative-driven, and survival horror.

Ammunition would be made very scarce in the game. Players would want to try avoid going “all-out gunfights” to save ammunition, and would rely on collecting materials and crafting craft items such as Molotov cocktails, tripwire bombs, grenades, and more.

Footage has shown one of the protagonist riding Wanzer mechas (from Front Mission) in different sections in the game. Players could choose to fight soldiers for the Wanzer or take a different route on foot. Wanzer are shown to be customisable with 4 weapon slots (2 small arm-mounted weapons and 2 shoulder-mounted weapons).

“Choice” is a recurring theme in the game: rescue civilians through persuasion or leave them behind. Interactions are important as well, because players could drive the story via “dialogue tree-driven conversations”.

Because of the player’s choice and action, it could affect the story and ending, and gave players to learn the fate of the three protagonist and the civilians they’ve saved.

Left Alive is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PC, however, Square Enix has yet to announce a release date.

Thanks DualShockers and IGN.
