110 Industries and developer Soleil showcases the Wanted: Dead combat in this latest video ahead of the game’s Feb 14th release on consoles and PC.
Developed by Japanese studio Soleil, Wanted: Dead is no ordinary action game. Players will experience some nail-bitingly close encounters and will have to use their skills to juggle between slashing sword combat and thrilling gunplay in order to survive the onslaught of enemies thrown in their path. Boasting a truly hardcore challenge, inspired by the mechanically rich combat systems of the Ninja Gaiden series, Wanted: Dead is not for the faint of heart and aims to put the player’s mettle to the test.
From the get-go, the player is well equipped with a powerful ranged weapon. However, solely relying on Hannah’s rifle won’t get you very far so ammo and secondary weapons dropped by enemies like assault rifles, SMGs, LMGs and grenade launchers will come in handy for when the fights intensify. Choose wisely though, as picking the right weapon mix in an encounter could mean the difference between life and death.
One way to survive in Wanted: Dead is to stay on the move by combining run and gun mechanics, melee combat, slide attacks, grenade tossing and takedowns to overcome your enemies in a sleek seamless style. Wanted: Dead requires mastery and will not go easy on the player so blocking and countering enemy attacks are essential and fundamental skills that will allow the player to progress.
Not only does Wanted: Dead offer the player crazy cutthroat combat combinations to take down enemies, but unlockable skills are also a key feature with a skill tree divided into three categories (offense, defense and utility). With no right or wrong way to spend these points, players ultimately have the choice of how they tailor their Wanted: Dead experience. While some players may like to rely on support from their team, others prefer defensive strategies during combat and some might even want to go on a total rampage and charge headfirst into the action.
