'War Robots: Frontiers' Available On Steam Early Access - Screens & Trailer

War Robots: Frontiers is a multiplayer, third-person mech shooter delivering intense, tactical skirmishes featuring immense, heavily customizable mechs.

Taking place 200 years after the original War Robots, players will battle over a system of worlds called the Wild 10.

Get ready to unleash your fleet of War Robots, engage in epic 6v6 team-based PvP battles, raze battlegrounds beyond the stars, explore a wealth of customization options, and smash through destructible environments.

As the battles rage, the great iron fury of the high powered weapons on the war machines will wreak havoc on the environment as players scramble for control of objectives. Pilots will have to be smart in how they utilize their limited amount of customizable mechs during battles. Will they deploy a swift close-quarters robot that relies on stealth and upclose fire power or deploy devastating ordnance from a distance with heavy cannons and missiles? Especially successful pilots will also be able to unleash their Alpha during the match, a massive machine of death that can turn the tide of any engagement with their overwhelming firepower and tactical abilities.

Developer Pixonic and publisher My.Games announced that War Robots: Frontiers is now available through Steam Early Access for $14.99.

Early Access will launch with one map that contains destructible areas that will mean that over the course of a match players will be constantly adjusting their tactics to accommodate the shifting landscape. More maps will be added over the course of Early Access as the ‘Wild Ten’ gets further mapped out with new locations.

In the hangar, players can construct their robots from a combination of parts and add their preferred weapons. The ‘body’ of the mech will determine what special ability a player has access to on the battlefield. From the shield ability of the Ares frame to the bombardments of the Bulgasari, players can currently pick from 8 different types to mix and match to their liking. This is in addition to the weapons that can slot into the robots shoulder hardpoints which can fit 9 different weapon types; from close-range machine guns, destructive missiles to long range cannons. Over the course of Early Access, more parts, weapons and abilities will be added to offer an even wider range of customization to players.

The developers of the game also shared a roadmap of the content coming to the game in the next few months. December will see the first big update with new robots, weapons and ability modules and more. In 2023 more updates are coming with new maps and further expansion of the amount of customization options available to players.

Pioneer packs are available now via the website of the game or via Steam. A Pioneer pack not only contains access to the game but also contains items for in-game use. Pioneers will be able to participate in the development of the game and try out new features first and help the developers with feedback and suggestions.

After the Early Access, the game will become Free to Play when it launches in 2023.
