    S and Xbox One in August 2021

    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 undoubtedly be obtainable in August 2021 for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One! Find out more about ExoMecha  from our previous Xbox Wire post, or join the beta at Now, prepare yourself to learn some more information regarding ExoMecha , another generation of battle royale game:

    Fully Customized Class Systems
    In ExoMecha , with this class and ability system, our players could have full freedom to generate their character builds as wanted to fit their play style. ExoMecha ’s class system shall regulate how many abilities, weapons, gadgets, and tacticals it is possible to equip. For example, if you need to concentrate on two active abilities just, they could be had by you, but must drop among your weapons and all of your passive abilities. Each choice shall have different penalties to balance your character build.

    Improvise, Overcome and adapt!
    Even yet in the center of a battle royale game, players will be in a position to customize their characters to adapt the flow of the overall game. Passive and active abilities will be the essential components of this customized class system. Players can choose their abilities based on the position they would like to maintain terms of playstyle, aggressive or passive, and transfer their play style in to the game conveniently.

    In ExoMecha , players shall have to create their mech loadout pre-match. Along with fighting with firearms and swords in the battle, mechs have offensive also, defensive, and tactical abilities. Moreover, players shall also have the ability to assign some skill points to boost their damage, agility, health, or stamina. But be cautious, because to boost one aspect, you should sacrifice other aspects.

    HOW COME Everything Chrome and Shiny?
    We wanted ‘80s and ‘90s vibes. In all honesty, after adding an individual chrome mech to your game, we wanted the rest to be chrome aswell. As an additional benefit, we shall have no player visibility issues.

    Our Vehicles and Their Flexible Use
    Along with mechs, you will be in a position to use five other vehicles to navigate across Omecha; quad bike, jeep, heavy tank, spider tank, and helicopter.

    With the grappling hook, you will get into each one of these vehicles quickly, ejecting yourself in one vehicle and engaging in another vehicle immediately, whether or not the ball player is in the new air or on the floor. In this real way, the dynamic gameplay is definitely at the best pace and the battle continues without the interruption.

    The quad bike may be the smallest vehicle in the overall game, with this particular vehicle it is possible to navigate through the map. But since it is really a open light vehicle fully, it’s possible for other players to inflict damage.

    Jeeps have a mounted turret at their backs, they’re effective against infantry therefore. However, it’s still a light vehicle and incredibly susceptible to explosives. So, prepare yourself to eject yourself you sense a danger anytime. Heavy tank may be the highest damage dealer vehicle in ExoMecha . It’s very effective against enemy armored vehicles since its cannon is fairly devastating. When using this vehicle you would like to hit your shots as accurately as you possibly can really, because its slow rate of fire can provide the enemy some opportunities.

    With the spider tank, that is very ideal for traveling on rough surfaces, it is possible to reach places where in fact the tank cannot go easily. As you may also quickly shoot very. this is a very effective anti-infantry vehicle.

    Are you aware that helicopters, they’re extremely fast but very fragile also. They’re very effective against enemy tanks. So it’s far better categorize them as a higher risk, high reward kind of a car.  However in case of any danger, it is possible to always eject yourself and ride your missile to safety or towards an enemy.
