Berlin-based indie developer Phantom 8 is kicking off the preorder period of its action stealth thriller PAST CURE with two new walkthrough videos. In today’s first walkthrough Nick Mallinder, animation artist at Phantom 8, introduces the skills and abilities players will need to master the world of PAST CURE. The video not only features the special skills Ian possesses as a consequence of the experiments he underwent, it also demonstrates the game’s core weapon as well as the melee and stealth skills players can choose from. The first new walkthrough video is accessible under this link. Many levels can be approached in different ways with Ian‘s abilities, allowing for full on action or a more stealth orientated approach. Players who wish to avoid direct battle can use astral projection to scout the area and create distractions for patrolling enemies by disabling security cameras. The time manipulation skill on the other hand helps the player to evade enemies, execute stealth kills or pull off the perfect head shot during combat. The gunplay is supported by melee combat and stealth kills motion captured in collaboration with specialist MMA fighters. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of PAST CURE are available for preorder now from various national and international retailers. In addition, players who preorder the game will receive the official soundtrack from the Belgium band Seiren. Front woman Charlotte Jacobs can also be heard in PAST CURE itself, as she voiced the ingame character Sophia.

In RvR, factions fight for fame and glory, taking turns to lead offensive and defensive efforts using all kinds of fantastical flying vehicles. Players can also join the fight from the ground with mechs and the use of anti-air artillery to fight airborne threats―or initiate ground based aerial attacks depending on the map and strategy.

The combination of ground-based and aerial combat makes each fight strategically challenging and dynamic.
