I’ve been a huge fan of Free-to-Play games, which offer you a full game for free if you’re willing to work hard to earn it. On Xbox 360 we have games such as Warface, Ascend: Hand of Kul and even World of Tanks. Ubisoft just announced that AirMech is coming to Xbox 360 this summer. What’s special about this game? It’s going to be another Free-to-Play game, which means you don’t have to pay anything unless you want in-game items. You can check out some of the gameplay in the video provided at the bottom of this post. What do you think?
Here is what was said by the company along with Ubisoft, “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,” said James Green of Carbon Games. “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.”
“Ubisoft is always looking for new ways to expand our console portfolio and AirMech was a natural choice,” said Chris Early, VP of Digital Publishing at Ubisoft. ”Carbon Games has created a unique experience, combining strategy and competition in an accessible free-to-play format that we think will resonate with console gamers.”
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 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.
