War Robots: Frontiers, the new Third-Person Mech shooter from MY.GAMES and Pixonic is kicking off its Early Access late last week. This new entry in the popular War Robots universe is developed exclusively for PC and console, the game will be available at a later date on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. Players on PC can already play the game by purchasing a Pioneer pack either via Steam or the official website.
War Robots: Frontiers was built completely from the ground up for modern PC and Consoles using Unreal Engine 5 to deliver intense, tactical skirmishes featuring immense, heavily customizable mechs. Taking place 200 years after the original War Robots, players will battle over a system of worlds called the Wild Ten.
Early Access will launch with one map that contains destructible areas that will mean that over the course of a match players will be constantly adjusting their tactics to accommodate the shifting landscape. More maps will be added over the course of Early Access as the ‘Wild Ten’ gets further mapped out with new locations.
In the hangar, players can construct their robots from a combination of parts and add their preferred weapons. The ‘body’ of the mech will determine what special ability a player has access to on the battlefield. From the shield ability of the Ares frame to the bombardments of the Bulgasari, players can currently pick from 8 different types to mix and match to their liking.
This is in addition to the weapons that can slot into the robots’ shoulder hardpoints which can fit 9 different weapon types: from close-range machine guns, destructive missiles to long range cannons. Over the course of Early Access, more parts, weapons and abilities will be added to offer an even wider range of customization to players.
The developers of the game also shared a roadmap of the content coming to the game in the next few months. December will see the first big update with new robots, weapons and ability modules and more. In 2023 more updates are coming with new maps and further expansion of the amount of customization options available to players.
Pioneer packs are available now via the website of the game or via Steam. A Pioneer pack not only contains access to the game but also contains items for in-game use. Pioneers will be able to participate in the development of the game and try out new features first and help the developers with feedback and suggestions. After the Early Access, the game will become Free to Play when it launches in 2023.
