Man, there is some great stuff coming out this year! Destiny, Driveclub, Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, The Evil Within and this... I'm sure I'm missing more than a few... I should organize all that into a post - but there's no time now! New screenshots!
"We’re pleased to be revealing the new features of the wider game. Firstly, the human survivors — abandoned on the remote space station the game takes place on. They’re in the same position as the player, they too are desperate to survive and that makes them unpredictable. Sometimes they react positively to the player, sometimes they can be aggressive."
"Next are the Seegson Synthetics — these are rudimentary, bio-mechanical creations. They too are hard to read. Sometimes their presence is beneficial, but it’s not guaranteed. Built to last, any form of antagonism should be avoided."
Creepy robots oooOOOooo...
"Finally we’re introducing the Crafting System. This allows items and components found in the world to be combined into rough and ready improved tools and devices that, if used in the right place at the right time, might just improve your chances of surviving. For example the Noisemaker — an unusual, hastily created, electrical device with two speakers on either end. When thrown into the world it creates a lot of noise, attracting the attention of anything nearby and allowing the player to slip past unnoticed."
Also, Tina Amini at Kotaku put up this nice preview vid with about five minutes of gameplay, showing off all kinds of stuff that hasn't been revealed before. October 7th can't come soon enough.
