Today’s agent reveal video for KAY/O is something of a confusing jumble of images and words, but the general feeling is “training bot fights back.” KAY/O’s loadout seems to consist of a flash, damage ability, and throwing knife, while its ultimate “fist slam” move … well, we’re not quite sure what that does, but it’s probably cool.
Also cool are the fragmented lore bits that are spliced throughout the video. KAY/O’s loadout seems to resemble moves used by other agents, and given the video’s early death/respawn/learn/death loop, it might be that the “practice bot” learned its moves by having agents practice on it. That’s a tough way to gain experience, but you gotta do what you gotta do to survive.
Now get a move on agent — the world doesn’t have all day.
