OctoBox Interactive have just released their team-based tactical mecha shooter, Blazing Core, to Steam Early Access.
In the future, teams of chivalrous knights pilot massive mechs in arenas modeled after historical architecture from around the world. Loosely inspired by MOBAs and hero shooters, each mech in Blazing Core features a unique set of abilities that can be used in conjunction with your teammates to create devastating combos. You can check out the launch trailer above.
In it’s current state, Blazing Core features six mechs, one map, and the choice between 3v3 or 6v6 team deathmatch modes. The game will eventually have a PvE story mode, way more mechs and maps, deeper customization, and improved progression systems. The developers expect the game to be in Early Access for about half a year.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
Blazing Core is a team centric tactical shooter in which players become the knights of the future and armor up in real mechs, inspired by ancient legends. Each mech embodies the spirit and nature of a hero, while an advanced customization system allows to fine tune the machine’s specifications and unique abilities.
Well coordinated and thought out teamwork is crucial when it comes to besting your opponents – the majority of mech abilities fit together like a dream which lets the teams truly realize their battle potential and tactical capabilities.
- Flexible Customization – Each machine boasts a wide variety of weapons and equipment that let you tweak your mech’s abilities and stats. This way you can change your role on the battlefield and diversify the gameplay.
- Team Play – By combining various mech abilities the teams can significantly enhance their performance on the battlefield. Identifying the players’ strengths and weaknesses will let you come up with the most effective strategies.
- Power of Knowledge – Understanding the principles behind the mechs and their abilities is more important than fast reflexes. Knowing your machine and its abilities will help you find your way around the battlefield and be ready for anything.
- Chivalry Aesthetics – Each mech echoes various historical eras from all around the globe and the future knight armor reflects that.
Blazing Core is available on Windows PC via Steam Early Access for $19.99.
