Spiders are back again with The Technomancer, a spiritual successor/follow-up to their previous Mars-based science-fiction RPG Mars: War Logs. In it, you play as Zachariah, a Technomancer who works for one of the major corporations that run things on the red planet in an endless struggle for water, which is a precious resource. The game will be released on June 21st in North America and Europe, and to commemorate this, publisher Focus Home Interactive has released a brand-new gameplay trailer, which you can find below along with some additional information about the game.

Spiders studio is back with The Technomancer, a sci-fi RPG for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC set on Mars during the War of Water, where an aspiring Technomancer faces a myriad of questions as his future grows threatened by the secrets of his past.

Technomancers are "mage-warriors", who harness, thanks to an innate talent, destructive electrical-based powers, amplified by their cybernetic implants. Both respected and feared by all, they are fearsome warriors trained from a young age to fight. You are one of them, about to finally pass your initiation rite to become a fully-fledged Technomancer.

An RPG, The Technomancer will offer players action-oriented combat gameplay along four different skill trees, focusing on 3 different fighting styles and the destructive electric-focused powers of the Technomancers. But all situations aren't necessarily to be dealt with brute strength, with dynamic conversation dialogue playing a deep role in quests, changing the story depending on the decisions you make. Craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and for the companions you'll recruit along your adventure, nurturing relationships with them.

On the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet, you must undertake a quest that takes you through forgotten paradises, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars' dusty embrace.

Faced with the cruelty of Mars' iron-fist enforcers and alien wild-life, can you survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer?


  • An adventure set on the sands and terraformed tropics of a post-apocalyptic Red Planet.

  • 3 combat styles and character customization.

  • Unleash powerful Technomancy magic on your foes.

  • In-depth crafting that changes the appearance of weapons and armour.
