Update #11 - Scanner and Hoverboard / Swing-Hook
Each gamer is equiped with a scanner that he can use whenever he wants to gather information and interact with the environment and the characters.
To do that, it is simple, you just have to look at the element that you are interested in to start scanning. By doing that you'll be able to translate the posters or video screens written in alien language, to start talking with other characters, accept missions, obtain informations about the city and items etc ...
We'll also bring you some informations about the Hoverboard and the Swing-Hook that we revealed yesterday.
They are facultative accessories that you'll unlock during your adventure. You'll be able to switch from one to another, they won't be mandatory in any way.
When you equip the bouncing suit that each gamer own, you will be able to move like we've shown in the presentation video, load jumps to throw you high in the air or bounce in order to not to lose height.
If you use the Hoverboard you'll gain in speed and you'll be able to use small obstacles like barriers or stairs as launching pad to raise you high in the air.
However you won't be able to charge your jumps or leap, so it will be more technical to climb on buildings.
The Swing-Hook will offer you sensations like in Spiderman movies. It will be hard to use, it's an accessory for advanced players.
It will allow you to swing and not take you to a fixed point. You will not be able to charge a jump or to leap with it.
Each accessories have their own pros and cons. We will pay a lot of attention to balance them to make sure that no accessory is better than an other and we'll take all your feedbacks in account during the alpha to improve them.
