Developer OctoBox Interactive kicks down the door to Early Access providing instant admission to Mech-heads who want to get hands-on with its brutal tactical shooter as it develops
October 19 2018 – OctoBox Interactive today announced that, for the next six months, its tactical PC mech shooter, Blazing Core – Knights of the Future, has entered the Early Access phase of its development. Players from around the globe can finally unleash team-based mech mayhem for £13.99 / €17.99 / $17.99.
Following a successful month-long period in open beta, Early Access will allow more players than ever be to go toe-to-toe with rival teams in fierce 3×3 and 6×6 battles across a dazzling array of outlandish, futuristic maps.
Although OctoBox keenly admits to taking inspiration from titles such as World of Tanks and Rainbow Six: Siege, Blazing Core – Knights of the Future is different beast in many ways. Instead of implementing headshots and spawn kills, the game’s core mechanics encourage tactical decision making before unleashing hell with the game’s eclectic range of weapons.
Blazing Core – Knights of the Future is a game replete with constantly evolving roster of features and game mechanics – many of which are the result of suggestions made by the community. As such, Early Access will include the following updates, refinements and new features:
