|The second part of RPG Vault's 'Metalhearts: Replicants Rampage' interview is now up as Akella Chief Programmer Alexander Filatow answers more questions about his company's upcoming cyberpunk RPG.
Jonric: What different types of implants will there be, and will energy or any other resource be required to use them? And will upgrading be possible?
Alexander Filatow: There will be three implant classes. Class one includes gadgets that can be inserted by the player anytime and anyplace, except in battle. Class two implants need a small operation, requiring the presence of a medic. Class three implants can be inserted only in special clinics. Shadowrun players will remember this type of system. The implants will all need a certain energy source that must be present at all times.
The upgrade of a single implant is impossible, so the player will have to replace it with a better one for improved performance and results.
