Platinum Games has produced some top-quality titles this generation, which is why we're psyched for their next project, Anarchy Reigns .
Besides getting some early videos – like this character trailer featuring Sasha – we didn't really have a whole lot of gameplay details until now. Thanks to Famitsu and Andriasang , we now have information pertaining to the plot and Story Mode. Set in the future, the world is in a state of chaos and nations battle for valuable resources; terrorism is high and peace is a long-lost dream. Viruses are spreading and mankind only managed to survive "through the use of nano machines and the development of cybernetic organisms." You will start in the city of Altanbra and that city will dynamically change over time; "bridges will collapse, trailers will come crashing through, and there will even be natural disasters."
In the Story Mode, you will control the main character, Jack, who you might remember from the Wii game, MadWorld . You'll have to clear various missions around Altanbra; you'll utilize Jack's double-bladed chainsaw, which sounds just plain nasty. Jack is 75% Cyborg and is part of an organization called Chasers, who handle what the police can't deal with. Other characters include Big Bull, Zero and Sasha, all of whom have separate back stories and their own unique "Killer Weapons." In the Story Mode, those characters serve as Jack's rivals and you can read up on them through the link above.
At first, we were a little worried about the "online action game" description, as it seemed Anarchy Reigns wouldn't boast a single-player campaign. But that obviously isn't true, so good news for those who still enjoy playing by themselves. 'cough' Me. 'cough'
