Today, Jeremy from Midgar Studios offered us some insight on the weapons mechanics and properties of the game, as well as how the world map works. Weapons will carry a base element property and will scale itself to another elemental property as it is leveled and other elemental properties are used in conjunction with it. For instance, if a weapons base element is ‘Earth’ and it is leveled using an ‘Ice’ element, you would create a unique weapon such as Winter Thorn, a combination of both the ‘Earth’ and ‘Ice’ elements. Jeremy was kind enough to supply us with a sample image of Winter Thorn,
We were also given some information about how the world map works. For those of you familiar with the early Final Fantasy games, especially Final Fantasy VII, the world map will function in a similar aspect. Continents will be unique to their location on the map, and small cities, towns, and landmarks will scatter the landscape for players to discover. Here is a sample of what you can expect the world map to look like.
To this point, there hasn’t been much in the way of gameplay videos of Edge of Eternity. Lucky for us, Midgar Studios has posted a gameplay video of Edge of Eternity on their YouTube Channel. The play through is experienced on the Ouya home console, detailing the quality of Edge of Eternity, and showing off the power of the Ouya console. Take a look.
