Left Alive is an upcoming mecha survival-action game that has a new trailer up. The title by Veteran developer Toshifumi Nabeshima and Square Enix will release in Japan for PS4 on February 28th, 2019, and for PC via Steam and PS4 sometime in 2019 across the West.
The latest Left Alive trailer unveils the three protagonists that will be playable at launch. Titled “The Invasion of Novo Slava,” the video trailer shows each of the three stories, missions, and paths to “salvation” through quick cuts. You can check out the new video right here thanks to Square Enix:
“LEFT ALIVE tells a human story of survival from the perspective of three different protagonists during the devastating invasion set in war-torn Novo Slava in 2127.
Experience the massive power gap between man and machine in pulse-pounding encounters: face off against powerfully armed troops, armored vehicles and towering mechs.”
While it’s not seen in the above trailer, you can choose your playing style and engage in frenetic gun battles or dispatch enemies with stealth and wit. You can also set traps, collect or craft items in an attempt to survive while exploring a city of ruins.
According to Square Enix, the game is led by developers Toshifumi Nabeshima who directed the Armored Core series, Yoji Shinkawa who helped designed the Metal Gear series, and Takayuki Yanase who happens to be a mech designer for Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and Xenoblade Chronicles X.
To be honest, here, I am interested in Left Alive. I do want to see more gameplay footage and other unique factors nestled within the game, but for now, I can tell Square Enix and crew are holding back on in-game footage. Hopefully, they can show stuff that’s hard-hitting sometime soon.
Lastly, as we predicted back on September 30th, 2017, Left Alive was delayed from 2018 to 2019. You can look for this game to launch in Japan for PS4 on February 28th, 2019, and for PC via Steam in North America and Europe sometime in 2019.
