Set in a steampunk 19th Century London, the third-person shooter charges players with hunting down half-breeds and keeping the peace in a civilian uprising, using cover-based shooting, quick-time events and interactive cutscenes. You can read out early impressions here, and watch the debut gameplay reveal below.

    Usually I’m not a fan of QTE’s, but if they actually give you some choices I might be swayed.

    The first thing that pops into my head when I saw how close the camera was to the players back and his position on the screen was not anything from the past generation but instead Resident Evil 4. The more I see of this game the more I think its taken alot from RE4. Which is a good thing, a very good thing.

    Visuals and atmosphere are amazing but after multiple views, the gameplay has got me worried a bit. Hopefully there is a lot more to this that just QTE and cover-based shooting.

    Sorry. But generic at best with simple QTE’s.

    @Erthazus – Is that your real opinion or the your opinion as it’s not coming to PC?

    @9 There’s a difference?

    Am I the only one that was completely turned off by the gameplay? The more I learn and see about this game, the less interest I have in it. And the less I’m interested in getting a PS4. Doesn’t help that I hate QTE’s (except in spectacle fighters where they belong). But the shooting they showed looked bland and shooting humans in the back no less.

    Now I’m not against cinematic games. I liked Max Payne 3 and have played cutscene heavy RPGs since I can remember. But the gameplay in this reveal is just boring.

    Holy machineguns with a steampunk reskin, Batman! That gameplay looks generic and boring as balls. My interest in this game (and in buying a PS4) was already near freezing, but it might have dipped into the sub-zero range now. Ah well, the longer I don’t feel like buying a PS4, the more money I have to spend when I finally do. Let’s just hope it gets enough interesting games worth spending money on at some point, because I’m currently not feeling at all…

    @livewired500 I’m with you. Hearing about this being a ‘filmic’ experience or whatever has made me lose interest. But this is where games seem to be heading. I suppose it’s selling points are the atmosphere and setting.
