The clock is ticking. I’m so excited to announce that ExoMecha, a free-to-play online competitive first-person shooter, has introduced its new trailer (above) and our game will be available in August 2021 for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One! Learn more about ExoMecha from our previous Xbox Wire post, or sign up for the beta at www.exomecha.com. Now, get ready to learn a few more details about ExoMecha, the next generation of battle royale game:
Fully Customized Class Systems
In ExoMecha, with our ability and class system, our players will have full freedom to create their character builds as desired to fit their play style. ExoMecha’s class system will determine how many abilities, weapons, gadgets, and tacticals you can equip. For instance, if you just want to focus on two active abilities, you can have them, but must drop one of your weapons and all your passive abilities. Each choice will have different penalties to balance your character build.
Improvise, Adapt and Overcome!
Even in the middle of a battle royale game, players will be able to customize their characters to adapt the flow of the game. Passive and active abilities are the essential elements of this customized class system. Players can choose their abilities according to the position they want to be in terms of playstyle, passive or aggressive, and conveniently transfer their play style into the game.
In ExoMecha, players will need to create their mech loadout pre-match. In addition to fighting with swords and firearms in the battle, mechs also have offensive, defensive, and tactical abilities. Moreover, players will also be able to assign some skill points to improve their damage, agility, health, or stamina. But be careful, because to improve one aspect, you need to sacrifice other aspects.
Why Is Everything Chrome and Shiny?
We wanted ‘80s and ‘90s vibes. To be honest, after adding a single chrome mech to our game, we wanted everything else to be chrome as well. As a bonus, we will not have any player visibility issues.
Our Vehicles and Their Flexible Use
In addition to mechs, you will be able to use five other vehicles to navigate across Omecha; quad bike, jeep, heavy tank, spider tank, and helicopter.
With the grappling hook, you can get into all these vehicles quickly, ejecting yourself from one vehicle and getting into another vehicle immediately, regardless of whether the player is in the air or on the ground. In this way, the dynamic gameplay is always at the highest pace and the battle continues without any interruption.
The quad bike is the smallest vehicle in the game, with this vehicle you can quickly navigate through the map. But because it is a fully open light vehicle, it’s easy for other players to inflict damage.
Jeeps come with a mounted turret at their backs, therefore they are effective against infantry. However, it’s still a light vehicle and very vulnerable to explosives. So, be ready to eject yourself anytime you sense a danger. Heavy tank is the highest damage dealer vehicle in ExoMecha. It’s very effective against enemy armored vehicles since its cannon is quite devastating. While using this vehicle you really want to hit your shots as accurately as possible, because its slow rate of fire may give the enemy some opportunities.
With the spider tank, which is very suitable for traveling on rough surfaces, you can reach places where the tank cannot go easily. Because you can also shoot very quickly. it is a very effective anti-infantry vehicle.
As for the helicopters, they are very fast but also very fragile. They are very effective against enemy tanks. So it’s best to categorize them as a high risk, high reward type of a vehicle. But in case of any danger, you can always eject yourself and ride your missile to safety or towards an enemy.
