PAX West Trailer

September 3rd, 2017|

PAX West Trailer This is the video that our CEO, Casey McGeever, unveiled at PAX West on September 3rd.  The video emphasizes the big picture of the game, beginning with character creation, followed by a flying tour of Apotheosis City, and ending with a solo combat sequence against Promethean enemies.  We decided to showcase our standard male model, which was upgraded in early July. We also used morphs and built an appearance unlike our other characters to help illustrate the power of [...]
