BattleSense is a 3rd Person Multiplayer Action Shooter, which is heavily influenced by fighting games. Shooting duels are not won by good reactions and aiming alone. Players also need to predict their opponent during a battle and adapt to quick changes to come out on top. The time to kill is higher compared to other shooters, which gives more options for counterplay. Suprising your opponents is not enough to defeat them.

Abilities

In BattleSense, players have access to several Abilities. These are available almost anytime, regardless of equipment. Each of them costs Stamina Points (SP), which limits their usage. SP slowly regenerates over time, when it is not spent on Abilities. In general, Abilities are defensive actions or to help you travel around the arena quicker.

Weapons

Most weapons are unconventional and have no real world counterpart. They differ greatly in their usage, and their performance in different situations. Each Player can carry up to three different weapons and freely switch them during combat. The rate of fire is lower than in traditional shooter, making the player think more before taking a shot. In addition there are also melee weapons, which in generally do more damage to make up for their range.

Project Particle Lance


Research and Development Report 003, September 25, 2094.
Executing Weapon Quality Inspector: Dirk Carpenter
For the attention of: Marvin Serkon

Current stage of prototype development


So far, we managed to stay true to the original idea of having a close quarter combat option featuring our trade marked particle technology. In this 3rd iteration of the Particle Lance, we extended effective combat range by getting rid of the necessity to physically touch the opposition. (Further explained in the Supporting Research Report).



Earlier designs which required physical contact were improved. By exploiting latest AgonidiumTM technology, we implemented functionality that allowed the wielder of a Particle Lance to release a burst of particles. This particle burst has a reach of about double the length of the actual Particle Lance. This results in extended melee range.


Additionally, the way damage is inflicted to the target was changed. Due to the lack of physical contact, initial damage was reduced. The singular damage application was replaced by ignition of the victim, therefore coming closer to our “Pain kills Character” philosophy. However, any ignited victim is still able to extinguish the fire by dashing. We are looking into this.


The secondary attack performs a ground shock around the wielder. After a short charge up time, the lance may be rammed into the ground. Again, by exploiting latest AgonidiumTM technology, a strong energy charge is discharged into the ground in an area slightly farther than the range of the primary attack. This attack is unavoidable unless the target is not touching the charged-up floor. Also, any victim caught within the blast radius is knocked back from the wielder, regaining some space for manoeuvres.


Supporting Research Report (AgonidiumTM)


We are pleased to report that our researchers were able to synthesize a new element, AgonidiumTM. AgonidiumTM is a new, very unstable nuclide with the unique ability to discharge some of its energy. When 2 AgonidiumTM atoms are rubbed against each other, they create particles. These particles are sitting loose in the AgonidiumTM core of our Particle Lance. Now, when a particle lance is subject to abrupt movement (like shaking or sudden impact), these AgonidiumTM particles are created and simultaneously released due to a difference in momentum. When release into oxygen, the particles behave incendiary. When released into solid objects, the particles try to find the path of least resistance. Coincidentally, human flesh provides very little resistance. Agony is inevitable.

Closing Remarks


Mr. Serkon, discovering AgonidiumTM, while highly beneficial for our company, came at a cost. Jerry Smith, one of our researches, was sadly exposed to a high amount of AgonidiumTM. What is left of him was given over to his wife and family along with a gift basket with wine and cheese and a letter of gratitude.
I also suggest having a moment of silence for our deceased colleague. One minute should suffice.

Wonder how the EMG works? The R&D Team at Fast Forward just finished their report for the first prototype.
