Exomecha has beamed itself into our awareness, and therefore existence, with a new and impressively hectic trailer. It’s an upcoming, free-to-play competitive FPS apparently teeming with vehicles, mechs, and more explosions than is probably healthy. The trailer entrails below. It has piqued my interest, I will admit.
The game was revealed with a brief trailer, which you can see below. There is…a lot going on here, but the game appears to be a fast-paced competitive shooter with a very Transformers-like vibe and feel of you taking on giant robots. Also, there’s a giant robot dragon. The game will be free-to-play, and you can actually sign up for the upcoming beta via the official website through here.
It looks like at least some of those things will seamlessly fit into the shooting, and the general vibe reminds me of both Halo and Titanfall. Oddly, I feel a dash of Earth Defense Force. It’s that big gleaming dragon and its Godzilla-ish mecha-scream, I think. Plus it’s bright and brash and I even detect a little campiness. The robots are all remarkably shiny, too. Quite impressive given all that sand they’re bashing around in. Gosh, do you remember when we had nearly a decade of po-faced, brown FPS games? If I’m going to get blown up I at least want to do it somewhere nice.
Is Exomecha coming to PS5 and PS4?
It would be unfair to judge the shooting on a few glimpses from a trailer. So let’s do it anyway: The ground-level gun bits seem a tiny bit floaty to me. The many, many explosions are promising, but I hope they don’t mean the regular bullet spewing parts will be neglected. You’ve gotta get your mundane infantry bits feeling good in a combined arms shooter. That’s your bread.
Exomecha is not currently announced for PS5 or PS4. The game will be launching exclusively for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. However, the game is not being published by Microsoft, which could mean that we will see an Exomecha PS5 or PS4 release later down the line.
Exomecha is a new free-to-play online game with team-based large scale battles from Twistdred. It has a unique battle royale game mode and an objective-based game mode, with guns, mechs, powers, and a load of carnage and chaos.
Exomecha is slated to launch at some point in 2021 for Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC. A beta will go up, though it’s unclear when or if it will come for all those same systems.
