ChinaJoy 2019 ramped up over the weekend, and with it another host of titles from China-based developers as the country’s biggest gaming expo is now on the verge of ending. There are tons of games that were featured over the past few days, so be sure to stick around for our coverage of everything announced at this event, especially seeing as China is starting to gain footing in video game development – and that means more great games for everyone.

One such promising game that was featured is a robot-themed fighting game from Chinese developer NEXT Studios. Titled Metal Revolution, the fighting game was initially announced to be in development for the PC but its recent ChinaJoy 2019 appearance also revealed an upcoming PlayStation 4 release.

Describing itself as the new generation of fighting games, Metal Revolution is set in futuristic world with obvious cyberpunk inspirations. Although not essential for fighting games, its plot is about a future conflict between humanity and technology.

Metal Revolution boasts its deviation from traditional fighting game controls that could block newbies from enjoying the title. It introduces basic moves and combos that players can easily use and master. Defensive blocking is also a theme for the game, and players are provided opportunities for offense while passively defending through the usage of blocks and parries.

Metal Revolution provides a number of game modes, such as your usual Arcade Mode, Training Mode, and Local Versus Mode. The rest include Quick Match, which immediately pits you against human foes online so that you can get a much more challenging setting, Friend Mode, which invites a friend online, and Arena, which is its Ranked Mode. Arena works like Quick Match, but we should expect some kind of matchmaking that pits you against players of the same skill level. Climb up the ranks and you will get unique rewards.

No release date has been announced for the fighting game yet, although those who’ve attended ChinaJoy 2019 have had some kind of experience on how Metal Revolution feels like to play on the PlayStation 4. If you’re curious, a 6-minute gameplay video is available below.

ChinaJoy 2019 started on August 2, and officially ended yesterday, August 5.
