Developers Dreadbit and publishers Ripstone have announced that their steampunk mech combat title Ironcast will arrive on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One in March – it hit’s the Playstation 4 on March 2nd and Xbox One on March 4th. If you haven’t seen Ironcast in action you can check it out in the trailer below:
Ironcast is essentially a match 3 RPG that allows you to fully customise your mech. It’s a pretty sweet game – it launched on PC early last year and received a ton of praise with fans loving the tactical combat and the fact it’s so damn addictive. I’m looking forward to checking out the console release!
“Ironcast is set in an alternative Victorian history; where refined men and women commanded gigantic mechanised war machines, laying waste to enemies of the British Empire. As Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall walking Ironcast. Gamers must face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880’s Victorian England.
Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast’s various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy their opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapon fire is due.”
Ironcast hits the Playstation 4 on March 2nd and Xbox One on March 4th – alternatively, PC gamers can grab it right now on Steam through this link.
