Developers Dreadbit and publishers Ripstone have released the launch trailer for the console edition of their steampunk mech combat tile Ironcast – check it out below:

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.”


I’ve spent some time playing Ironcast and it’s really enjoyable and ridiculously addictive. Match 3 puzzlers aren’t typically my thing, but when there’s huge mechs involved you can count me in.

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.
