The upcoming Action RPG from Focus Home Interactive and Spider Studios now has a release date, as The Technomancer will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 21st.

The news was revealed in a recent post on the PlayStation Blog, where more information for the game was released, as well. Scroll down for a few bullet points provided by Creative Director Jeanne Rousseau that detail aspects of the game’s combat:

  • The combat with the staff is based on mobility and damage, using sweeping blows against groups comprising several enemies.
  • Fighting with Blade and gun requires agility, dodging, and controlling the pace of combat with the nail gun.
  • Finally, the Blade and shield combat style focuses on defence, blocking and parrying to inflict heavy damage in response to an attack.

The Technomancer is set during what is referred to as the War of Water, which takes place 200 years after humans colonized Mars. The game stars protagonist Zach as he finds himself on the run from the secret police, with Zach being an electrical-power-wielding Technomancer.
