During their E3 media conference, Xbox head Phil Spencer took to the stage to reveal and talk about ReCore, a new franchise from Comcept and Armature Studio, including legendary developer Keiji Inafune.
Showing a woman, one of the last humans on Earth, and her excited robot dog strolling through a barren desert landscape, they soon come upon a broken robot before being attacked by aggressive spider-bots and are soon overwhelmed. To save its master/friend, the robo-dog sacrifices itself, leaving an orb of energy which the woman then inserts into the broken robot from before. The newly energized partner seems to take on the attributes of her sacrificed friend.
With the title being “ReCore”, I’m guessing those red and blue glowing spheres we see are integral to the gameplay and plot of the game. Apparently, the game will feature a variety of robot companions with different abilities. Guess we’ll find out soon enough as the game is slated for a Spring 2016 release. Check out the reveal trailer below!
