Starfield’s ‘Entangled’ Mission: A Mind-Bending Sci-Fi Thrill Ride That Defies Expectations
Exploring Multiverse Theory and Ethical Dilemmas in Bethesda's Latest RPG
Your journey leads you into the lab’s basement, where you must deactivate the device responsible for initiating this interdimensional chaos while securing the alien artifact that fuels it. Shifting between realities becomes essential for solving puzzles, circumventing cave-ins, and unlocking doors as you navigate through this mind-bending labyrinth. One reality pits you against sterile security robots, while the other hurls waves of Cataxi aliens, creating tense, Doom Eternal-like battles in confined spaces.
While “Entangled” shares similarities with an iconic mission from FPS history, it brings its distinctive flavor to the table. Respawn’s Titanfall 2 made waves with its inventive traversal mechanics and grand-scale gameplay. The beloved single-player mission “Effect and Cause” took this innovation a step further by introducing on-demand time-travel mechanics.
Much like “Entangled,” “Effect and Cause” unfolds in a mysterious laboratory setting. After obtaining a portable time-travel device, you gain the ability to jump between the pristine past and the war-torn present within the same facility.
While both missions explore space-time anomalies tied to alien artifacts, there’s a notable difference. “Effect and Cause” grants you the freedom to time travel at will, allowing for tactical advantages and clever maneuvers. Despite this distinction, both games leverage the possibilities of sci-fi to not only challenge the boundaries of reality but also to push the limits of level design.
