Sega's third person Sci-Fi shooter Binary Domain (cool name, no?) the latest creation of Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi, is coming to PC in April. It was released on console in February to generally positive reviews and has sold well. In fact, there's been significant demand to see it on the PC platform, so Gary Knight, SVP of marketing at Sega said, "As well as the excitement generated by Binary Domain in the console press we were seeing increasing numbers of players asking for a PC version. So we listened and we delivered."
It's being released on Steam on 6th April with a pre-order price of £29.99, with no discount at the moment, which doesn't seem like very clever marketing to me.
Key features include: a new take on futuristic Tokyo, the consequence system, procedural damage, weapon modification and skill selection. Also the Steam page describes the game like so:
THE MACHINE AGE HAS BEGUN in this immersive and atmospheric squad-based shooter in which you need to regain control of a futuristic Tokyo from an emerging robotic threat.
Set in 2080, the story starts when Dan Marshall and his squad are sent to bring the robotic community under control as they begin to infiltrate society and slowly take over undetected, leaving humans redundant in their wake.
Thrilling encounters with highly intelligent robotic enemies require you to think tactically, make challenging, real-time moral decisions and build up trust with your team mates in order to guide your squad to safety and success.
Finally, let's hope they port it to the PC properly, taking advantage of the more advanced features available, so it doesn't look and feel like another cheap console port.
