Today, Ubisoft® and Carbon Games announced that AirMech® Arena is headed to the Xbox One, all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. The competitive real-time action strategy game will be free-to-play* on Xbox Live accounts on Xbox One, and PlayStation®Network in spring 2015.
In AirMech Arena, players control powerful transforming weapons known as AirMechs to protect their bases and takeover enemy fortresses. Gamers will collect up to nine available AirMechs, each with its own unique abilities, and command them to deploy defence units from the air or to transform into ground mode and defeat armies on the front line. As they gain experience, they will earn kudos (in-game currency) to unlock upgrades, new units and pilots to expand their collection, and customise their appearance with exclusive skins and effects.
AirMech Arena allows players to complete quests and earn rewards in solo games, or partner with up to four friends for co-operative play online. Competitors can test their skills in ranked matches, or spar for practice in unranked mode. Teamwork is vital to succeed in multiplayer as allies must simultaneously manage resources and protect their bases while attempting to capture their opponent’s territory and defend against the opposition. The game also supports a spectator mode, which gives gamers the opportunity to view each other’s matches and see the top competitive players in action.
