Bandai Namco has announced Synduality, a new sci-fi shooter coming to Xbox Series X|S.
Set in the dystopian future of 2222, Synduality is set to be part of a new transmedia sci-fi franchise for Bandai Namco. It takes place years after a mysterious poison rain known as The Tears of the New Moon destroyed most of humanity, and birthed deformed creatures that now hunt those that remain.
You'll player as a Drifter, collecting rare AO crystals and fending off strange creatures known as Enders. Along the way, you'll have an AI partner known as a Magus, and you might even come across other players in online multiplayer, who can help you on your missions, or turn against you to loot your resources.
“Synduality is a project we can’t wait for players to put their hands on,” said producer Yosuke Futami. “We have been working with famous designers such as Neco for character design and Ippei Gyoubu for mechanical design, as well as the team at Game Studio to develop a fun shooter with strong core gameplay and a unique focus on the relationship between AI and human, where the bond that develops between players and their Magus impacts game play and story.”
Synduality is coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC in 2023. You can check out the announcement trailer down below.
