Last week we said we’d be showing off Chapter 7. We decided to save that for later and instead we’ll be showing off a bit of Chapter 8. “Warped” features the introduction of the new copy ability that we’ll be unveiling next week. It’s also marks the return to large open areas like in Chapter 2 (but this time even bigger).
This chapter takes place in two locations. The inside of an arcade, where you suddenly wake up after the events of Chapter 7 and a supermarket, your place of retreat after being chased down by the police. Without spoiling too much, you ingest a large amount of a modified Rhyphorm, causing hallucinations and enhanced abilities like the new combo-based chain kill. This chapter will also feature a new mechanic: enemies will warp back and forth between their normal forms and a hallucinatory form. Our aim with this chapter is to create a light-hearted intermission before things really start kicking off.
