New Mars War Logs Trailer Shows Off In-Game Combat System
Mars War Logs might be an indie title, but as is currently the trend, it’s an indie title with a lot of potential. The game, which is the latest title in development by Focus Home Interactive, is a science fiction action/adventure that takes place on the red planet of Mars.
Mars War Logs takes place a century after a catastrophe that has thrown Mars and its colonists into chaos. Water has become scarce and there are a few companies that have been fighting a perpetual war for control over the limited resource. Gamers take control of Roy Temperance, a renegage with multiple talents. With Roy, players can choose among dozens of skills and perks and fight their way through a hostile planet. Dialogue choices, as well as specific actions made in-game, will influce the destiny of everyone that Roy crosses paths with and possibly, the fate of Mars itself.
In this new trailer for Mars War Logs, we get our first good look at combat in the game. This video can be taken as a survival guide as it explains – in detail – the combat system of Mars and how to customize it to fit your gameplay style. Players will have a choice of skills including melee attacks, ranged attacks and Technomant arts. As an RPG, the game will allow players to distribute XP into skill trees, which are also shown in this video.

Mars War Logs will be released in Spring 2013 on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and PC.
