Set on Mars during something called "the War of Water," The Technomancer sees gamers playing as the Technomancer himself. Described as a "combat proficient warrior," the Technomancer has a range of cybernetically enhanced magical abilities, and also wields a sword as you can see above.

The Technomancer also features a "dynamic crafting system" that players can use to alter the visual appearance of their weapons and armor, which can be accessed through an inventory system.

In addition to the Technomancer himself, players will "bond with numerous unique and interesting companions and reveal secrets about their past," according to the game's official description. There are four different skill trees to follow, each focusing on three different fighting styles.

Another interesting story element is that some missions will have up to five different endings, Spiders said.

Here's the official story description for The Technomancer:

"On the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet, you must undertake a quest that takes you through tribal communities, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars' dusty embrace."

The Technomancer is scheduled to launch in 2016 across Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
