While Switch owners get Daemon X Machina, PC players won’t be left out in the resurgence of mecha action titles with M.A.S.S. Builder. As announced by publisher Sekai Games and developer Vermillion Digital, M.A.S.S. Builder will officially release on PC via Steam Early Access this Friday, September 13. A demo is now available to download for those interested in seeing what this mecha action game has to offer, and Vermillion Digital has also put up an Early Access trailer, which you can check out below.

In terms of gameplay, M.A.S.S. Builder looks like it will play like any mecha title like Armored Core, but this time pits you against monsters instead of other mechas. The effects and animations themselves look pretty decent for an early access title, and there’s a pretty big emphasis on mecha customization shown; players can tinker around with their mechas to create the ultimate killing machine, both in terms of style and arsenal.

M.A.S.S. Builder takes place in a future where humans are being plagued by unknown beasts of the void. With a large portion of humanity wiped out in an instant, the war for the survival of the rest began, changing landscapes and settlements into warzones. From this chaos, the M.A.S.S. technology was born.

M.A.S.S. Builder will see players piloting a M.A.S.S. (Mechanical Assault Skeleton Suit) in an action-packed RPG, where they also take on a role of a commander of a private military company set to combat the threat of Quarks, which are monsters from the void. Players will build and customize their own personal mechanical suits to combat Quarks, all the while looking extremely cool while doing it.

The developers have also released an Early Access roadmap for M.A.S.S. Builder, which includes the game receiving regular updates every two months. Check it out below.
