This August, we have a lot of incredible games releasing. Such as Control, Life is Strange 2 Episode 4 and Astral Chain. With the latest trailer showing off the basics of combat for Astral Chain.

We get a short look at Neuron before the action starts. Neuron is a police task force charged with fighting the Chimera but an alien invading the Ark; humanity’s last bastion. Neuron uses Legions, living weapons, that are connected to the player through Legatus. What follows is a basic tutorial.

Players can use a baton or guns to inflict damage or summon Legions for added damage. These include Sword Legion for close combat, Arrow Legion for long-range, Axe Legion for heavy attacks, and Arm Legion for powerful punches. The Axe and Arm Legions are used to destroy certain enemy defenses.

Legions can act independently or attack alongside the player for “chain actions” for specialized attacks like blinding targets or sending them flying.

Astral Chain launches for Nintendo Switch on August 30, 2019
