Magnetic drops players into the role of a prisoner serving time for past crimes in a vast, ever-changing prison with chambers that shift in random patterns. The players are given a special magnetic gun, and are urged on by a sadistic warden controlling the complex. By manipulating and mastering magnetic forces, they must find a way out – but no choice is without consequence in Facility 7, where each chamber offers a unique challenge ranging from classic puzzles to moral choices.
With countless puzzles to solve and a branching storyline, no playthrough is ever the same in Magnetic. The graphically spectacular title will be playable on the show floor all weekend.
