Does anyone have any Scythe gameplay footage?


Before the white knights come pouring in screaming "NDA!!!!", I'm not asking for any footage from the technical test or closed beta or what have you. I'm just asking for all the footage and gameplay videos we've been given over the past months, is there any footage that includes the Scythe?

I've seen very few glimpses of the Scythe in action. There were a few people in TB's video who piloted the Scythe, the abruptly crashed into a mountain or the ground. Very underwhelming to say the least.


But yeah, as the title says, anyone have any Scythe gameplay out there? I've really been itching to see how this thing performs, I'm anticipating using it throughout the majority of my time in PS2. Farming infantry from the skies in my comfy air conditioned Scythe seems like my cup of tea.

Also, anyone who was at the public SOE event or even E3 that got a chance to fly the Scythe can put in their two cents at how it handled. Thanks!

NDA!!!!




In all seriousness the only real Scythe footage you'll get is the TB day 2 e3 stream. There just isnt footage beyond that. I played a fair bit of it during community day and for someone new to it, "flip over and crash" describes the experience perfectly. Its going to take some training to get used to.

The scythe basically has double the controls that other planes have, since it has the left-right turning ability with the keys. It's everything the other planes have plus an extra layer of turning on top of that.

What makes it so hard is controlling both systems in harmony, simultaneously, because you need to use both in order to fly effectively.

From the footage TB released it seemed like the VS we're the most popular faction choice. I was really expecting some other Game sites to have plenty of footage. So far nothing yet.

The Scythe is the most maneuverable of the 3 factions fighters. UFO has been used to describe what it's flight mechanics are like the Mossie is the fastest I believe while the Reaver has the most survivability but is less maneuverable.

Weapons wise all can be fitted to be Air to Air, Air to ground or an anti tank fighter. As with all VS weapons systems it does not suffer to ballistic physics but its projectiles lose potency over range.

TB released this video a few months back in an early alpha play test. Skip to 4:00.

He is flying/shooting in a Scythe for a good 5 minutes with plenty of commentary.
