The story takes place four years after the original Fear Effect game. It follows the Asian lesbian mercenary, Hana, along with her lesbian lover, Rain. The two end up getting involved in a shady mission in France that takes a turn for the worse. The other playable characters, Deke and Glas, find themselves in their own troubles while while taking on a mission in Greenland.
A free demo for Fear Effect Sedna is available right now over on the Steam store page, which you can grab right now. You can also check out the cinematic sequences from the demo below courtesy of Reznoire.
The game hasn’t been receiving the best feedback from the Steam community due to many complaints about the controls for the isometric gameplay being clunky.
Sushee changed things up from the former Fear Effect games, which used fixed camera angles when they launched on the PSX nearly 20 years ago.
A lot of people enjoy the game’s cinematics, graphics, and character relationships, but aren’t too fond of the turn-based strategy elements or the lack of “tactical” strategy required to complete the segments.
Of course, Sushee could always improve the combat and tactical layers of the game leading up to its release in early 2018.
For fans of the series looking to increase their library of games on the Nintendo Switch, you can look for Fear Effect Sedna to launch next year along with the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions.
