This Binary Domain Gameplay Trailer Is Mostly Cut-Scenes
This trailer opens with a subtitle that says ‘All footage captured in game‘. And I believe them. But they’re calling it a gameplay trailer and I’m pretty sure this is about 70% cut-scenes. Last I checked, you don’t actually play during cut-scenes. They should call this a gamewatch trailer. Truth in Advertising: they needz it.
Anyway, Binary Domain looks beautiful, though it also looks like a cross between Gears of War and I, Robot. My calculations suggest that Sega’s upcoming man-vs-robots shooter is also the 1 millionth Japanese cultural output set in the Future, set in Tokyo, and involving giant robotos laying waste to Japan. Fortunately, just like the 999,999 entries before it, it’s probably going to be awesome. It’s not really possible to refute giant mecha + urban combat.
This (cough cough) gameplay trailer offers some tantalizing hints about what to expect. Third person with some FPS elements (likely in sniper mode), a massive urban environment, slick robots, possible squad based combat and if the soundtrack is any indication, sullen teenagers galore. Binary Domain isn’t out until early 2012, so this trailer probably means we’re going to get some quality time with it at E3 2011.
Binary Domain is scheduled for Q1 2012, and will be available for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
