Working towards being the ultimate gamepad-based RTS experience.
Ubisoft has announced a partnership with indie developer Carbon Games to bring AirMech Arena to Xbox Live on Xbox 360.
In a war-torn future, powerful weapons known as AirMechs dominate the battlefields in the fight for scarce resources. Players command giant transforming robots and capture and protect bases while building colossal armies to fight waves of enemies. As gamers conquer fortresses, they unlock powerful units, pilots, items and AirMechs, and can customize their armies to fit their personal gameplay preferences.
AirMech Arena will be a fast-paced, free-to-play, real time strategy game that will supports single-player, multiplayer cooperative and multiplayer competitive gameplay for teams of two to three players. Teamwork is vital to succeed in multiplayer as players must work together to defend their fortresses against an onslaught of relentless enemies.
James Green of Carbon Games said:-
"As an indie developer, AirMech has been our passion for the past several years, and we are thrilled to partner with Ubisoft to bring the game to console. AirMech Arena was created from the ground up to be the ultimate RTS experience with a gamepad. The fast-paced action and depth of strategy brings console gamers a new experience we are confident they will enjoy.”
AirMech Arena is set to release this summer on Xbox Live for Xbox 360.
