The Signal From Tölva
65 On an alien planet, robots war in the ruins of a long dead civilisation, chasing the mysterious, eponymous signal. As you explore the gorgeous open world, AI-controlled factions dynamically scuffle amongst themselves, initiating landgrabs for each other’s territory, patrolling contested areas, and laying siege to each other’s bases – and it’s all completely unscripted. You’re not just there to observe, mind. If you want to progress (and ultimately find the source of Tölva’s signal for yourself), you’ll need to get involved, disrupting these automatically-generated conflicts in favour of your favoured faction. As well as getting things done the old-fashioned way (shooting everyone in the robo-face with a laser rifle), you can also recruit squads of your own, mind-controlling teams of droids to do your bidding and get their hands dirty on your behalf.
