Tiny Shark Interactive announces the open-world RPG Exzore: The Rising for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
The game is set in the medieval world of Eogaan and follows Damien Clive, a former commander of the Exzore army unit, as he is emerges from the ashes of his betrayal to seek retribution and regain his honor. Exzore: The Rising features the use of "mechanical gadgets" which give special abilities to the hero and can be used in combat and exploration, as well as an "Affinity" system that affects the player's experience and how the story unfolds as the character interacts with the game world and the various factions. Tiny Shark is also promoting the game's combat system, calling it "extensive" as it allows players to mix and match Exzore abilities in a wide variety of combos.
"We wanted to create a real role-playing experience in which players' choices have an effect on the gameplay experience," says Vishal Ranga, Creative Lead of Tiny Shark Interactive. "The NPCs and your enemies will get smarter and stronger as you play, so players will really need to consider their actions. Additionally, experimenting and coming up with creative ways to use the special abilities of the Exzore gadgets really make the game your own."
The world of Eogaan is split into four factions and each has its own community, rules, motivations, and agendas. As you play, your interactions between the different factions will affect the game's story and how it progresses. Favoring any one faction can grant you special missions, rewards, benefits, and abilities. The Affinity parameter will be altered as a consequence of player's choices in game. Every mission will alter affinity, thus increasing toward one and decreasing toward another. Affinities are important because they directly affect the character and mission progression, and play an important role in gameplay experience. It also can alter how the story ends.
Exzore: The Rising is scheduled to launch in late 2018.
