Developer Spiders Gamer Weavers is back in action with the new RPG which is slated for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2016.

Set on Mars during the War of Water, where an aspiring Technomancer - someone/thing that has magical abilities to affect technology or are gained through the use of technology - faces a host of questions as his future is threatened by the secrets of his past.

These are the first images from the game, which were released on Spider's official website over the weekend.

According to Spiders, players will face action-oriented combat gameplay along four different skill trees, focusing on three different fighting styles and the destructive electric-focused powers of the Technomancers.

A spokesman for Spiders said not all situations will necessarily be dealt with using brute strength. "With dynamic conversation dialogue playing a deep role in quests, changing the story depending on the decisions you make," the spokesman said.

"Craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and for the companions you'll recruit along your adventure, nurturing relationships with them."

Gamers will be on the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet. You will embark on a quest that takes you through tribal communities, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars' dusty surface.

Faced with the cruelty of Mars' iron-fist enforcers and wildlife, gamers must survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer.

Spiders will be hoping The Technomancer fares better than its previous effort, Bound By Flame, which was met with widespread criticism and poor review scores when it was released last year.
