14 minutes of war-torn Left Alive gameplay footage

SQUARE ENIX has today released a 14 minute long Left Alive gameplay trailer showing off the different protagonists, and how the game will work when it launches next month in the west.

Set in war-torn Novo Slava in the year 2127, Left Alive tells the story of three different protagonists experiencing the futuristic gap between man and machine. Both blazing-guns and stealth options will have their advantages in Left Alive, as you work your way through the city towards uncovering the truth behind what caused the war.

With developers known for such franchises as Metal Gear, Xenoblade Chronicles, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Left Alive is shaping up to be a decent title and possibly even a solid rival for The Division 2, also launching in March 2019.

Watch 14 minutes of official Left Alive gameplay footage below:


Through the eyes of all three main characters, take a look at how every step and decision made will make or break your way through the dangerous warzone of Novo Slava.

Available in very limited quantities, the MECH EDITION is now available for pre-order exclusively on the Square Enix Online Store. The DAY ONE EDITION is also available for pre-purchase on PlayStation Store and Steam.

Veteran developers, Toshifumi Nabeshima (director, Armored Core series), Yoji Shinkawa from Kojima Productions (character designer, Metal Gear series), and Takayuki Yanase (mech designer, Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Xenoblade Chronicles X) join forces to create Left Alive’s dark and gritty world.

Left Alive launches on February 28th in Japan, and March 5th everywhere else on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam. Stay tuned to Rocket Chainsaw for our full review, and for more information head to the official Left Alive website.
