  • Counter for Victory
    • Anticipate what the enemy is thinking and place mechs strategically on the battlefield.
    • Counter the moves of the opponent by choosing the perfect unit combination as the battle unfolds.
  • Turn the Tide with Special Abilities
    • Turn a losing battle into a winning one by calling down the perfectly placed airstrike or maybe spread chaos by calling in a horde of crawler bots in the middle of the enemy's army.
  • Massive Battles
    • Watch shrapnel, incendiary bombs, and huge lasers cut through the air as battles between growing armies of mechs unfold in front of your eyes.

Player Level Progression

The team at Game River revealed that the early access game version comes with a new feature called "player level." While this has been planned and developed for some time, it wasn't included in the beta test since the purpose of that was stability. The Player Level system is a way for players to get rewards through playing the game. It is divided into two parts:

  • Research Level
    • Increase quickly with an average of around 25 minutes of play to increase on level.
    • Each time a player upgrades their research level, they get a tech point which can be used to unlock new technology for units.
  • Advanced level
    • When the research level reaches the highest capacity, players can level up their Advanced Level.
    • Every time they reach an Advanced Level, players get 120 credits as reward.
