Like ham and cheese or oreo’s and milk, robots and guns are a perfect match made in destructivenessation … that’s a word, right?
Dictionaries aside, this December you can expect plenty of firepower and metal sparks flying in Masthead Studios’ PC based online shooter GUNS And ROBOTS, which wants to give you as much control over your robotic creation and the armoury at your disposal.
As online shooters go, you can expect plenty of action across the board within traditional death match options and capture the flag along with a number of other different modes. Each playable map has differing spawn points and breakable objects, but in the end the aim is simply to beat the tar out of the opposing robots. Thankfully, the amount of weapons and options to do so are rather numerous.
Your chosen warrior can be built from three different classes (light, medium and heavy) which can alter what kind of armour and weapons you can add. The Light class has the biggest advantage in dodging and movement, but can it outrun the power of the heavy class for example?
The weaponry itself has plenty of options surrounding it, a few thousand different combinations in fact. You’ll be able to test all of them during your robot building within the Burn-In Garage (AKA: BIG), an opportunity to fine tune everything before you put your robot to the test within the arena itself.
Also, leaving the best part to last, GUNS And ROBOTS is free to play! Can’t say no to some free destructivenessation!
You’ll be able to get your game on before the end of the year, but while the long wait to December rolls along, why not read up on what to expect from GUNS and ROBOTS via the official website and sign up to be a beta tester while the program is still operational.
