Catalyst Is Livelock's Final Playable Character
Perfect World have today announced the final playable character coming to Livelock, Catalyst. A trained soldier, skilled fighter and born leader, she rounds out the heroes known as The Few
Pre-cataclysm, Catalyst was a member of the Armed Forces, carrying on her family’s legacy of military service. Her functions in battle are enabled by a small squad of combat drones she commands. Though the Earth’s battlefields have changed, a new war wages across its surface and Catalyst seeks to uphold the honor of her family.
Livelock transports players into the 22nd century, the age of the machine. Nearly a century after the cataclysm, humanity is on the brink of survival. Clusters - groups of corrupted machines control what remains of the earth, fighting each other in an infinite war over resources that now threatens the very planet itself. Players take control of a Capital Intellect, a human consciousness uploaded to large mechanical body. Armed with a unique arsenal of weapons and special abilities, the Capital Intellect must fight the corrupted machine Clusters and break the cycle of an infinite war, before humanity is forgotten in the annals of history.
Livelock is a fast-paced cooperative top-down shooter based in a post-human world where machines are waging an infinite war against each other. Livelock will launch in 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
