Killing with traps in new Deception IV gameplay footage


4:00 PM on 01.01.2014



Tecmo Koei has released three videos demonstrating the gameplay of Deception IV: Blood Ties, coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. In each, a different person is killed by a complex set of traps chained together, including bear traps, wall spikes, an iron maiden and so much more.

What appears to be new in this installment is an increase in the number of traps you can implement at one time. In prior games, players were limited to one trap each of floor, wall and ceiling types. Here we see five traps being used at once, with three of them assigned to the 'X' button and selections made with L & R. You know what this means? Mad combos, that's what it means.

I want this badly. The Deception series is one of my all-time favorites and stands apart as a very different kind of game to play. You're constantly on the defensive, always running, but when you manage to get a group of traps set and an enemy walks right into your nefarious plans, it is sublime. I wish Tecmo would tell me when this is releasing in North America, because I am so ready to give them money for it.

Here are the other two videos recently posted:

Very Quick Tips: Deception IV: Blood Ties

Deception IV is a unique release, mainly due to the fact that there aren't many trap-setting games on the market in general. Because of that, it's often hard for people to acclimate if they've never played a past entry before (Trapt is on the PSN, by the way) -- so here are some tips to help you along.more

These new Deception IV trailers are sufficiently absurd

Want to get an idea of what the gameplay is like in Deception IV? Watch these trailers to see how exactly the trap setting mechanic works. It's not very action oriented, with more of an emphasis on the strategic placement of traps for fun and profit. It may not be for everyone, but I've been waiting years for a Deception follow-up, so expect a full review sometime next week.more
