Toward the end of the tactical part of the demo, this hulking red-armored alien dude — dubbed the “Berzerker” — casually took out a building wall in one fell, claw-handed swoop. He’s large, in charge, and completely new to the series. “He can destroy environments just with his own body,” said design lead Jake Solomon.
The environments are “very” destructible, too, said Solomon: “It’s definitely a big part of the game.” As in the original, Solomon says a big enough gun or alien can take out your hiding spot just like that. “You can’t take anything for granted, not even the cover you’re standing behind.”
