Spies and mercenaries
Apart from a quote in XDefiant, the next free-to-play FPS from Ubisoft and an animated series currently in production at Netflix, we are still no news from Sam Fisher and the Splinter Cell license. We know the guy is known and trained to be discreet, but it’s a bit too much for the fans.
That’s why other studios intend to fill this void with strong ideas related to the franchise, such as the famous Spies vs. Mercs introduced by Pandora Tomorrow. here is SPECTRE from Symbiosis Games based in Toronto.
The idea is simple: a team of spies agile and discreet must fulfill a series of objectives, while than a team of mercenaries armed to the teeth must track them down and eliminate them.
The thing is, the spies will play in the third person with the possibility of doing the same acrobatics as the famous agent of Echelon-3, while the mercenaries will play to the first person like in a more classic FPS. Two totally different gameplays, so.
Thereby, Symbiosis Games indicates drawing inspiration more directly from fashion Spies vs. Mercs de Chaos Theory, the most complete and successful version according to independent developers. However, it will also be a question of upgrading certain gameplay mechanics. to current standards.
Although the trailer above illustrates well in-game rendering, we will have to wait a little longer to take advantage SPECTER gameplay footage, expected on PC before the end of the year.
