Mech Some Noise! – Heavy Gear® Assault Out Now Through Steam Early Access
New Brunswick, Canada – January 5, 2017 – Stompy Bot Productions award-winning Heavy Gear® Assault is now available for PC through Steam Early Access. Developed by MekTek Studios, Heavy Gear® Assault is a metal-grinding, heart-pounding, combination of fast-paced mech warfare, fuelled by corporate sponsors, on a distant alien planet known as Terra Nova.
Vince McMullin, CEO and Producer, Stompy Bot, said:
“Apologies for the slightly later than planned early access launch for Heavy Gear® Assault, mainly due to a simple misunderstanding over the authenticity of our screenshots. Whilst we’re flattered, we can assure everyone that it’s not a case of ‘too good to be true’ – the screenshots are captured in-game from the early access demo. We have to tip our hats to the wizards at Epic for a game engine that literally makes Heavy Gear® Assault look Unreal!”
The first mech sim to be built in Unreal Engine 4, Heavy Gear® Assault sets a new benchmark for the mech gaming scene, with a game made by and for true mech fans. The same fans behind the critically acclaimed MechWarrior4 MekPaks now bring the return of the cult mech franchise Heavy Gear, which began life as a tactical tabletop wargame and role-playing game in 1994, spawning an animated series and two video game incarnations, Heavy Gear (1997) and Heavy Gear II (1999).
