The Sig­nal From Tölva

Games Master - - Feature -

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.
