Plus a tiny bit of drama too. Front Mission Evolved has a single player campaign mode where a female pilot will, at some point, give you a ride after you throw away your last chance to save yourself. I assume the main character hitches a Wanzer ride with her, but in Front Mission Evolved you can fight on foot.
Here’s a bit more about the game’s story.
In the future, the world is a changed place. Technology has advanced. Countries have merged into massive geopolitical blocks. But one thing, sadly, remains the same – humanity’s appetite for war. When a terrorist attack destroys one of the U.C.S.’s prized orbital elevators, the military is mobilized to eliminate the threat.
Dylan Ramsey, a young engineer, finds himself quickly caught in a swirl of destruction, conspiracies and crumbling alliances. Experience his story in this high-octane third-person shooter.
Front Mission Evolved comes out on September 14.
