ReCore system requirements

Ahead of its release on September 13, ReCore just got a meaty PC stream, showing off the first 30 minutes or so of the metroidvania-style action platformer.

In a Twitch livestream, Microsoft’s Major Nelson and ReCore writer Joseph Staten talk us through the opening moments of the game, showing us its handholdy tutorial before teasing us with some of its lovely-looking open-world exploration.

It looks like it’s in the exploration where it’ll shine, but it’s going to be one of those games that’s difficult to judge from the opening moments. After all, it’s all underpinned by RPG systems and crafting, with the protagonist making and tweaking her robot companions as the game goes on, changing up their combat styles.

In the early stages, ReCore’s lock-on shooting and colour matching weakpoints don’t get me very excited at all. See it for yourself in the stream below:
