Left Alive Launches March 5, Gets New Mech Edition

Square Enix offers first details on the Day One Edition and the ultra-limited Mech Edition of their new survival shooter, out March 5 on PS4.

We’re excited to announce that Left Alive is coming to PS4 on March 5, 2019! You may be thinking: “The game is called Left Alive huh? I’m guessing I’ll have to… survive?” The answer… is yes.

Left Alive takes place in the fictional location of Novo Slava in 2127 after a devastating surprise invasion leaves the city swarming with enemy troops, towering mechs, and in burning wintery ruins. If that description isn’t painting a picture yet, take a look at this:

You’ll play as three different characters with three different paths, all seeking salvation from war that has erupted in the city. As each of those characters, you will have to make difficult choices in your escape that sometimes are a matter of life and death. The choices you make and the routes you take will all have an effect on how the story unfolds.

What does that mean? Let’s say you’re avoiding enemy patrols and trying to sneak your way out of the warzone, but you come across a pair of soldiers who are holding a group of refugees at gunpoint. What do you do? You have a few options. The heroic thing to do would be to run in, take the soldiers out and save the civilians, but that comes at the cost of risking your own safety and supplies. You also have the option to take a more strategic stealth approach, or even to bypass the confrontation in order to not to risk your life or your resources on a deadly rescue mission. Your choice will affect your characters’ story in different ways.

Speaking of characters specifically, we’ll dive into each character’s story and how they were caught up in this war in due time. For now, we can relish in the fact that the look and feel of these characters come from the great mind of Yoji Shinkawa from Kojima Productions!

A couple more things we’re excited to share:

  • The Wanzers (mechs) were designed by Yoji Shinkawa and Takayuki Yanase (Xenoblade Chronicles X).
  • The game is directed by Toshifumi Nabeshima (Armored Core series).

We’re also excited to announce a Square Enix e-Store exclusive “Mech Edition” that includes some pretty sweet items. We’re selling extremely limited quantities of these so you’ll definitely want to grab one if you’re into having awesome, limited things that people will be jealous of. The “Mech Edition” includes:

  • Ammo Pack
  • Light Body Armor
  • Recovery Pack
  • Klyuch Weapon (exclusive)
  • Grenade Pack (exclusive)
