2D/3D cyberpunk action-platformer-RPG-hybrid-thing, Anno: Mutationem has shown off new gameplay, and developer ThinkingStars has detailed how the game’s many genre elements fit together.
Revealed during Gamescom 2020, the gameplay shows off more of Anno: Mutationem’s unusual mix of 2D sprites for characters amid a 3D cyberpunk world inspired by Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell.
Gameplay includes 3D segments – which allow you explore the city (and othe runrevealed locations) – and 2D-only areas built for combat and platforming. Combat includes light and heavy melee attacks, as well as ranged abilities.
The game also includes elements of RPGs, including buying and crafting items, talking with NPCs to unlock both primary and sidequests, and more.
Anno: Mutationem got its previous biggest showing at this month’s Sony State of Play showcase, and will be coming to PC and PS4 “soon”.
