Late to the party? The party doesn't start till I get here.

Everyone’s talking about a certain other cyberpunk title at the moment, but the chatter has apparently motivated Spiders to release a little more information about its upcoming action RPG Mars: War Logs. The digitally-distributed sci fi epic has players in the role of one Roy Temperance, stuck in the middle of a gang war over Mars’s failing water reserves.
Roy will have play off the interests of the once-powerful conservatives Abundance as they struggle to maintain dominance over a new guild known as Aurora, whose ranks include Technomancers, the cyberpunk equivalent of mages. It features equipment crafting, NPC conversations, real time action combat and ladies wearing what appear to be satellite dishes wired into their brains. Sold.
Publisher Focus Home Entertainment has been quietly gloating over a new batch of screenshots showing off some of the characters and images form last month’s debut trailer, which you can check out below.
