Miss the character decision-driven science fiction epic of Mass Effect, but wish it had a little more of a melee focus? Pay attention to Technomancer -- it could be the spiritual successor you've been looking for. The game's developer, Spiders, doesn't exactly bill it as a Mass Effect clone, but the similarities are hard to ignore: an action RPG with a robust leveling system, forking story paths based on player choices and the ability to befriend and romance your teammates? That sure sounds familiar.

That said, we're not talking about Mass Effect: unlike Bioware's epic, Earth simply isn't part of the equation for Technomancer. This story takes place on a colonized, terraformed Mars that's been isolated from the rest of humanity for 120 years -- revealing a world that has evolved its own cultures and conflicts. It's not all combat focused either: the developer says there are as many as five ways to finish each quest, and each decision will have a major impact on the game's ending. Sounds pretty neat! Technomancer will be heading to PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime next year.
