Mars: War Logs Brings Science Fiction Role-Playing To XBLA; Summer PSN Release Confirmed


Spiders’ science fiction RPG, Mars: War Logs, has performed an intergalactic jump from the PC world to consoles, and has made a new home on Xbox LIVE Arcade. That console exclusivity will only be short-lived, however, as the game will end up making its PSN debut sometime next month, in both Europe and North America.

Available now for 1200 Microsoft Points, Mars: War Logs centres its plot on a renegade named Roy, who finds himself in-between two sides of a corporate civil war, on a red planet that underwent a disastrous event only a century prior. To succeed and survive, he must polish his real-time combat skills, upgrade his skills, talents and equipment, and make wise decisions relating to behaviour and spoken dialogue.
