SEGA’S BINARY DOMAIN NOW AVAILABLE
Infiltrate a futuristic Japan and discover the secrets behind the mysterious “hollow children” in this narrative-driven shooter from the Yakuza creators
SEGA of America today announced that their highly anticipated third-person squad-based shooter, Binary Domain™, is available now for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 at retailers across North America.
Created by Toshihiro Nagoshi, the man behind some of SEGA’s most well-known franchises including the critically acclaimed Yakuza series, Binary Domain puts players in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle against an army of robots that threaten the future of mankind. Set in Tokyo 2080AD, a city polarized by poverty and the increasing use of technology, a battle for resources persists against the backdrop of a world that has been ravaged by extreme climate changes. When an illegal robot-human hybrid known as a ‘hollow child’ attacks an American robotics corporation, the world as humanity knows it changes forever. Players control Dan Marshall, part of the covert operations R.U.S.T. crew, on a vital mission that sees them fighting through both the slums of the derelict lower city and picturesque upper city environments to discover who is creating these hollow children.
Binary Domain’s ground-breaking voice-controlled Consequences System focuses on the player’s interaction with his or her squad mates, with conversational decisions directly influencing the trust levels between you and your teammates. Binary Domain also features a mix of competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes, spread across seven different game types including Free for All, Deathmatch, Domain Control and Operation, as well as five different player classes to choose from. With a central branching storyline, voice recognition in combat and conversation and AAA shooter mechanics, Binary Domain offers something genuinely distinctive to the genre.
