110 Industries and Soleil released a new trailer for their high-action game, Wanted: Dead, coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on February 14, 2022.
The trailer highlights the finishers that players will be able to execute during combat. These are unique abilities that are each unique to a specific enemy type. Further, early in the game, Hannah will be able to utilize ultimate attacks to take down staggered enemies. You’ll be able to recognize this staggard state when you deplete the enemy’s stamina bar, which varies depending on the enemy type.
As the player damages enemies, this stamina bar depletes slowly, and once their stamina falls to zero, the enemy enters a staggered animation and can be executed by the player. Another way to attain a finisher is by using last-moment parries with a sword or sidearm, which automatically drains the enemy’s stamina, providing the perfect opening for a kill.
Wanted: Dead uses a smart system of triggering finishing animations. First, the algorithm looks for the possibility of an environmental kill or a situational kill, like using an enemy’s own weapon against them. Then the algorithm ensures that the player has a strong visual variety by constantly moving and rotating around enemies to achieve epic takedowns.
Wanted: Dead tells the story of Lt. Hannah Stone, who has been imprisoned after losing the global war. She is given a chance to escape and puts together a team of people known as the “Zombie Squad” to get the job done. The game’s narrative reveals corruption within a company called Dauer Synthetics, and Hannah is about to take them down.
