Darkflow Software og Gaijin Entertainment flytter grænserne for Battle Royale genren med deres Cuisine Royale. Her skal du ikke bare leder efter våben og rustning. Nej du er også nød til at lede efter kropsdele. Hold øje med et ben, en arm eller andre vitale dele, selvfølgelig efter du er faldet over et hoved.
But there’s no need to worry, as you won’t start out being nothing more than a torso (in fact, you lack that, too). The mannequin you are joining the battle with does have some human resemblance, but you won’t be able to make the most out of the items you find before constructing yourself in true Frankensteinian manner. Without a proper head, for example, you won’t be able to eat, giving you no chance to replenish lost health. And while your weak mannequin hands may be able to hold a light weapon, you won’t be able to haul yourself over walls and obstacles without a proper set of biceps.
Better, faster, stronger! The more proper body parts you gather, the better your character will be. Besides providing for basic life functions, gathering the body parts of the game’s two main characters will add neat bonus characteristics to the mix. Clyde’s iron-esque buttocks will increase your protection from zero to hero, while his thick head will help to better resist the dangerous effects of the zone, which means you’ll take less damage when out of the playable area. Annie, on the other side, provides your character with an experienced diver’s torso, allowing you to save your breath for longer, while her left and right arm will speed up the reload of your weapons and reduce firearm recoil respectively. You can find a total of 14 different body parts – 7 male and female each – which can be combined in any way you can imagine (or would rather prefer not to).
Frankenstein your ideal character and test your creation in battle from March 30 to April 2.
