When the title was first announced a couple months ago, one of the key ideas that was emphasized by the game's director, Emil Kraftling, was that this isn't a "go in guns blazing" kind of FPS, but a "guerrilla action game." The trailer actually shows off how some of that idea plays out as you get to see a few scenarios where a group of players lay an ambush for the machine foes, and either use different weapons (like a sniper rifle and an assault rifle) to take down a single target, or things in the environment, like an electrical breaker box.

Specifically, Emil says the team views this as a "guerilla action game, because it helps paint the picture of how the odds are stacked against you." He goes on to talk about how you'll be scavenging cars, sheds, and other things in the world to find some loot that will help you take on the robots, which are much bigger and stronger than you, a puny human; and sometimes, discretion is the better part of valor and you'll do better to avoid combat.
