There is nothing wrong with giant robots destroying a city. Simply put, there isn’t anything else like it out there. Regrettably, there aren’t a whole lot of mech-based games out there in today’s gaming space. However, one developer hopes to change that.
Developer Modus Games, the team that brought you the giant-slaying acting game, Extinction, is looking to take their style into the online gaming arena with Override: Mech City Brawl. Coming to consoles and PC this Holiday Season, Override: Mech City Brawl looks to add something different to online combat and gameplay.
Greatly inspired by the over-the-top action of anime, as well as the great giant monster movies of cinema, Override: mech City Brawl is a 3D mech-based party brawler, where players can slug it out in 1v1 or 2v2 brawls. Players can choose from a total of 12 different mechs to pilot, with each one being completely different from the next.
Mechs will range from large and tank-like to small and swift, to strike a fine balance in between. The diversity of the mechs is immense, as one will give the profile of a caped superhero and another will clearly be kaiju-inspired, complete with laser breath and a spiked tail. Using these mechs and learning their abilities is the key to victory. For those that like to express their personalities in their games, there will be a solid range of customization options, including accessories and skins.
In addition to the online and local multiplayer modes, Override will allow players to fight alone through a single-player campaign, fighting opponents and discovering the stories behind these mechs. One of the most fascinating modes will be a mode ripped straight from the pages of Power Rangers and Pacific Rim. Override: mech City Brawl will feature a 2-4 player party mode where all players will be in control of one single mech. One player will control each limb, meaning that teamwork will be absolutely imperative for success.
Override: Mech City Brawl will take place across a multitude of cities, modeled after real-world locations, such as San Fransisco, Egypt, Mexico, and Japan. Players will be encouraged to fight opponents, but also have fun wrecking the entire city. All sorts of buildings and structures will fall with each punch, blade swipe, and plasma blast. With 12 mechs, a multitude of battle arenas, and several different modes of play, Ovveride: Mech City Brawl looks to be an exciting addition to mech-focused video games.
Override: Mech City Brawl will arrive in December for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 4th, 2018. Players can sign up for the closed beta, which runs from August 10th to the 12th.
