The RPG mechanics
Mars War Logs is a full RPG, and offers all the elements that define the genre. You will gain experience points during the adventure, either through combat or by carrying out quests which will allow you to level-up and develop the character you are playing in any way you want. You can define your combat style by choosing from numerous skills spread out over three talent trees: pure combat, stealth, special strikes and even stronger Technomancer powers… the choice is yours!
However, bear in mind that your character will not only develop through combat; the game is full of important dialog that will influence both the development of the game and the reactions of the NPCs (non-player characters). So there are times when you may be able to diffuse a tense situation with a few well-chosen words, avoid a fight or, conversely, provoke the other person into launching hostilities. Remember: your choices will have consequences later on in the game!

Numerous side-quests assigned to you by the various NPCs you meet will provide additional opportunities to discover more about the game history and, in particular, not only will you earn extra experience points enabling your character to develop further, but you can also receive a range of items, weapons and armor as rewards.

Various characters will join you in your adventure and become buddies who will help you both during and away from combat. You will be able to develop friendships with them, each having their own personal principles and ethics. They will therefore react differently depending on your actions or how you address them and both will have an impact on how effective they are in combat. Some of your friendships may even lead to romance... provided you adopt the right approach and behave appropriately!
