Following the announcement of Square Enix's intriguing-looking game Left Alive during Sony's TGS briefing this week, a mountain of new details about it have come to light. The details come by way of a Weekly Famitsu story, translated and reported by Gematsu.

Starting off, Left Alive is a third-person "survival action shooter" for PS4 and PC due out in 2018. The game is set in the Front Mission series, taking place between Front Mission 5 and Front Mission Evolved. Left Alive has three protagonists, one of which is a woman, and you'll switch between them as the game progresses. You can see the three protagonists in the artwork below.
