1UP: Quantum Theory Preview

1UP writes: "Tecmo is daring to enter a realm that Japanese developers typically shy away from (the world of third-person shooters) with its newly announced PS3 exclusive, Quantum Theory. In one of those "a world rocked by cataclysmic destruction" situations, the "dark destroyer Syd endeavors to scale and raze the Living Tower" (an art nouveau-style spire that's alive with mystical energy), but along the way he "encounters the mysterious female warrior Fillena, who's also scaling the tower with an unknown agenda." Yeah, that's the kind of language the developers use when describing this game.

Quantum Theory is reputedly only about 20 percent to 30 percent finished, and it was only shown in trailer form at TGS. From our brief chat with members of Tecmo's recently formed development team, Team Tachyon, we learned that the shooting gameplay in this title has a major twist: The landscape changes in real time to provide -- and rob you of -- cover and to present new obstacles to overcome. While some of the landscape deformations in the Living Tower will be scripted, the environment will change randomly, leading us to believe that not all of the game's environmental encounters will have fixed difficulty."

The story is too old to be commented.

That right there sparked an otherwise dorment interest in this title. 20-30% done means they've still got some time to implement a few more graphical pushes and more information before release. Keep it up

Ah, so that's where the "Quantum Theory" comes in to it.

Edit: Disagreeing doesn't make what I said wrong.

I am interested to see what they come up with. I just hope this new Tecmo studio isn't like the Ninja Gadien team making games way to difficult.

Gears meets Castlevania. With the whole living tower and changing landscape.

Like in Castlevania there was always a haunted castle or something.

Sounds interesting

interesting

i'd say its more of a cross between gears of war and fracture. if it in fact it plays like gears of war, which is not a bad thing for ps3 owners that never got a chance. for me the key would be the selling point would co-op/coopetition and strong story. if there is one thing i hate is a weak story.. bland like dark sector is ok but not weak.
