A New Look at Binary Domain

One of Sega’s hot new properties, Binary Domain, decided to come out of hiding today, with a terrific gameplay trailer and some gorgeous screens.

As you may (or may not) recall, Binary Domain is the latest game from Toshihiro Nagoshi, creator of a number of classic Sega titles, including Shenmue, Yakuza, and more. The game takes a familiar theme — man vs. machine — and puts a decidedly Japanese spin on it.

The plot has some noticeable similarities to other stories where machines become sentient and start evolving into human-like automatons — Terminator and Battlestar Galactica among them — but sets the action in 2080 Tokyo, where the culture has crafted sleek, white Apple-type robots to serve them. As it always does, war breaks out between the robots and mankind, leading to some fast-paced, spectacular firefights. The trailer above provides our first look at the game in action, and watching it, I was reminded of the kind of big, cinematic set-pieces that the Uncharted franchise is known for. Could Binary Domain be Uncharted-meets-scifi?

We’ll find out when it drops in early 2012.
