GB Feature: Space Siege Preview

We’ve put together a quick preview of Space Siege after spending some firsthand time with SEGA and Gas Powered Games’ recently released demo.

Space Siege seems like it’s going to be a little bare-bones. From what I can tell, you’ll only be able to play as Seth Walker, and you won’t have any options for what he looks like or how he starts out. The game is going to use a classless system, where you’ll pick the skills you want to build up, but it looks like the only major decision you’ll have to make is whether you’ll stay completely human or if you’ll add some cybernetic components to your body to become more of a machine. Your status in this way will determine which skills you can learn, which weapons you can use, and perhaps which quests you’ll be able to go on.

Similarly, there doesn’t appear to be much in the way of equipment. There isn’t any armor at all, and the interface only shows room for ten weapons (five melee weapons and five guns). I only saw three weapons in the demo, including a chain gun that you can only use if you install some cybernetic parts onto your body. Otherwise, enemies only drop (upgrade parts,) which you can collect and use to improve your weapons and defensive ratings. You can also use the upgrade parts to construct health kits and grenades, but this probably won’t be too necessary since those items seem to be in plentiful supply.
