IGN Feature : Powers

New article up at IGN ! It's described as a focus on the Special Powers - and the first of a series.

First up is 'Wield', which is supported by some descriptive pics and movies ! It's basically teleknesis... or if you are Star Wars inclined... a Force pull, push, throw move !



The surprise is that the article adds a little more than what was in the title and also features a look at one weapon and one vehicle ! Detailed are the 'Faust-C-41' - the standard issue pistol (pic also up of the Faust) and the 'Scythe (ATV with mounted hangun)' all terrain vehicle. (this is what we are seeing in the pic above ?)

Hopefully we might also see dedicated weapon and vehicle features popping up in the future. Go check it out by clicking on the image above !

I’ve just read the article, I like the gun ; Wield is a very strong power…I hope we don’t get it in the beginning because if we do, the game will be too easy….
The videos look very dark compared to the screenshots …it might be due to the TV screen…

I think powers will get better as you progress through the game. The more you use a power, the more powerful it will become.

On the weapon side, it sounds like we will be getting powerful weapons straight up.

A nice thing, though, is that the weapons also improve as you use them (as far as I remember correctly). The more you use a weapon, the more power it packs and accurate it becomes. Also, you'll eventually gain its alternate fire (rather than starting with it) as you use it.

I think weild would be okay at the beginning depending on how its handled. If it starts with a low amount of usable time and a long recharge time (assuming that's how it works), then it would be okay to start with.

Guess we'll see how it works in a while, eh?
