Verified insider Tom Henderson (Tom Henderson) clarified with his informants the details of the evacuation of the PvP shooter Marathon from Bungie studio and divided them in the material for the Insider Gaming portal.
Previously, Henderson said that Marathon is a duty game in the spirit of Escape from Tarkov: buy before the mission, land, complete the task in a squad of three, and evacuate to save the loot you’ve collected.
In the current version of Marathon, in case of death, the character loses loot (weapons, artifacts, currency), installed implants have a chance to “survive” the owner’s death, and open talents remain with the player forever.
According to Henderson’s sources, the oxygen system is the hallmark of the marathon. The supply for each player is limited and will be used up during the game. When it ends, the user starts losing health.
The lack of oxygen can be compensated by buying/finding an O2 tank or by pumping to a talent that slows down oxygen consumption. Also, players have access to special abilities, such as the ability to highlight enemy silhouettes.
Henderson reveals what Bungie wants to make of Marathon “perfect gaming service”: short loading times, great replay potential and lots of secrets on the maps. The studio is currently working in three locations. Whether they will all be ready to go is unclear.
Marathon will be available for PC, PS5, Xbox Series
