Mindjack video introduces 'Instant Multiplayer,' gaudy pre-order bonuses revealed

Don't let the truly appalling voiceover work in the video posted after the jump distract you from said video's key thesis: Square Enix's Mindjack's multiplayer mode looks pretty unique. Online players can instantly jump into your single-player campaign, and can inhabit the bodies of monsters, mechs and humans to shoot and sliiiiiide their way towards either helping or hindering your progress. Check out the trailer below to see all the body hackin' (body, body hackin') unfold.

If the "Instant Multiplayer" shown below appeals to your manipulative senses, Square Enix has announced some incentives for early adopters. Anyone who pre-orders the game will be able to download the "Ability Pack," which gives them an unlimited sprint boost, as well as a gold uniform for their in-game soldier. Because nothing helps you blend in with the crowd like a bright gold jumpsuit, except for literally anything else.
