The third-person mech shooter War Robots: Frontiers is now available on Early Access. This latest addition to the War Robots universe is going to be initially available for PC. Versions for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S are coming out at a later date.

War Robots: Frontiers was developed from scratch using Unreal Engine 5. This means players can look forward to intense and tactical skirmishes that feature heavily customizable mechs. During the Early Access launch, one map will feature destructible areas to encourage players to constantly adjust their tactics to accommodate the shifting landscape throughout the match. More maps will be added during the game’s Early Access.

Create Mechs

In the game, players get access to the hangar where they can construct their robots using a combination of parts and preferred weapons. The "body" of the mech determines the special ability like the shield ability of the Ares frame and bombardments of the Bulgasari. For now, eight different types are available for mix and match.

The special ability is on top of the weapons which players can slot to the shoulder hardpoints. Meanwhile, a total of nine different weapon types from close-range machine guns to destructive missiles and long range cannons are accessible.
