Kehittäjien kertomaa:

Miksi Early Access?

“We want to make it clear to players that AirMech Strike is in active development mode and we are still experimenting with the game to make it the best it can be. As a Free to Play game, it is important to us to make the game fun and fair for anyone interested in a true Action RTS. We remember the days when demos were free, so to us Early Access as a F2P game is great since it lets anyone try the game 100% free, and give input that helps shape the game ahead of our official release and leaving beta.

Carbon has never made a Free to Play game before, with the dev team having worked on mostly retail or console paid games in the past. As such, we don't know what we are doing when it comes to making a F2P game loop, especially for a game that doesn't quite fit into any existing genres perfectly. Since one of our core values is to not make a game "pay to win", this has us testing a lot of different approaches to find the best fit for AirMech Strike.

Our definition of success is to have the game operating where we can justify continued development post-release, meaning it generates enough income for a small dev team. We have recently crossed the 2 million player mark for the PC version, but have found it very difficult to offer players things they want to purchase--but we see people do like to play solo and coop a lot! We've decided to move a lot of the free content to a new paid game, while refocusing AirMech Strike on the core PvP experience.

All players who are marked as Silver VIP (our internal flag for a player having spent any money at any point) will be receiving a new game, AirMech Wastelands, for free very soon. It will serve as a companion game to AirMech Strike, with greatly expanded Coop missions, RPG loot, and all the restrictions removed that previously limited free accounts. The goal is no second class citizens in either game--in AirMech Strike, it is a level playing field for everyone, payer or not. And in AirMech Wastelands, everyone "owns" the game, putting us back in our older comfort mode of designing games.”

Miten kauan Early Access -vaihe suunnilleen kestää?

“AirMech Strike will be in Early Access unitil August 2017. With the AirMech Strike update, our months of effort to rebuild the game are finally revealed, and we are focusing on finishing up the restructure and fixing bugs.

We will continue to update the game after leaving Early Access, we just don't feel the Early Access label is appropriate any longer. We've always had a very stable client, and we don't require to be paid before you can try the game, so it isn't representative of what some of the complaints players have about other games in Early Access. It's been fun, but we want to move up to full release now.”

Miten täysi versio eroaa Early Access -versiosta?

“We are patching AirMech Strike every few days. The full release will not be radically different than the current version (if you have seen the Strike update) but mostly will focus on bug fixes, tutorials, social feature hookups, and making sure AirMech Strike hooks in nicely to AirMech Wastelands, which uses a shared account. (players can move between the two versions if they want to do PvP, or the PvE/RPG game)”

Millainen on Early Access -version nykyinen tila?

“We have just posted a massive update to AirMech in the form of AirMech Strike. Players from a few years back will recognize this as the pure PvP action game they loved, which over time we crowded with bits and pieces from other F2P games in an effort to expand the appeal. We admit that was probably a wrong direction, as we annoyed the players who loved PvP by making it just another mode, and didn't seem to offer anything that the new players wanted to pay for.

The current version you see, AirMech Strike, is very close to our vision of what we want the Free to Play PvP game to be. We have disallowed many of the modifiers to combat which made PvP confusing and/or unfair, instead moving them over to AirMech Wastelands--and making them even better.

Since AirMech Strike is free, we suggest giving it a try to see if you like it. To us this is the best thing about being a Free to Play game--we don't have to promise the world, we can just let you try for yourself!”

Hinnoitellaanko peli toisin Early Accessin aikana ja sen jälkeen?

“AirMech Strike will remain free. AirMech Prime, a package that includes currency, Boosts, and some exclusive cosmetics (among other perks) will increase 50% from the Early Access price. We have stated this for years now, and ingame we clearly mark this.

Other prices will remain the same.

Also, any player who has paid real money in the past (shown as Silver VIP ingame) will be entitled to receive the companion game AirMech Wastelands before it is sold to the public. After it is released, this offer will not apply, and AirMech Wastelands will likely be priced the same as AirMech Prime during Early Access. (sorry for not just listing prices, the local currency options make that tricky!)”

Miten yhteisö otetaan mukaan kehitysprosessiin?

“Even before AirMech was on Steam, Carbon has maintained their own forums for interacting with the players. Carbon devs are often in Global Chat, monitoring the health of the game and the servers. We have an AirMech Council of dedicated players that advise the devs on game balance issues (and they are so happy to see AirMech return to its PvP roots), as well as community moderators who are players that have shown themselves to be helpful leaders.

On our forums we have been very open with the community about our development plans, who we are, why we wanted to make AirMech, and how we are continually trying to find that right combination to make the game profitable while not doing "bad" F2P things. We've been opportunistic to find other ways to help build AirMech, from doing console versions with Ubisoft to doing VR versions with AirMech Command.

It has been difficult to not find the right mix for so long, and the previous (pre-Strike) update was a bit of a disaster. We annoyed our loyal players by adding more solo content, and found the new players played a lot but didn't play with others, and didn't pay for anything.

We proposed different paths forward to our community, both publicly on our forums, and privately to paid supporters. We considered un-F2Ping AirMech, or even moving to a new game. Collectively the decision to split the game in two became exciting, as nobody misses out on anything. Over the past 6 months, we answered questions, laid out plans, and felt really good about the next steps.

After finishing AirMech Command earlier this spring, we set to work on "the split". AirMech Wastelands started as the older version of the game, first by removing F2P mechanics, then greatly adding to the missions and overworld design of the game. Without worry about F2P, true progression came in the form of tons and tons of parts to earn as drops, buy from vendors, and we see a really cool RPG rising up.

At the same time, we trimmed AirMech Strike back to its roots. How to get players to play PvP? Just literally put them in a lobby. A 3D lobby. Make it easy to invite friends, use matchmaking, create custom games, browse for custom games--everything the hardcore PvP crowd had been asking for.

The community has been incredibly supportive during this process. As a tiny self-funded dev team (which means we are community funded) this is the only way we could have made it this far. A huge thanks to everyone from the Carbon team!”

Hoiday Bundles of Joy

Another update! First thing you will notice is a new welcome screen with messages of the day and a quick link to patchnotes:



Last night we pushed AirMech Strike Update #252, Build 69114. The new holiday packs/bundles are also live, and the full Christmas event will be on momentarily. Nicholai has arrived and is regularly gifting players in chat with random rolls. A few more surprises are coming very soon...

The next set of changes for loadouts are in and we are getting close to having this done. Now you can use Tab to cycle loadouts (which you setup in the lobby) instantly. You currently cycle through all of your loadouts, but we will be restricting this to 2 or 3 loadouts which you will choose during the pregame. Currently you can still right-click units on the UI to make individual swaps, but this is just meant as a fallback if there are bugs with Tab. You should arrange your loadouts and name them accordingly so that swapping during the match is what you expect. One loadout could be for early game, one for guardians and ordanance, another for late game pushing. Get creative, and give us feedback on how this feels for competitive play.

About those new bundles! We have a ton of Christmas content, and wanted to combine that with Diamonds and Keys to offer some super values just during the holiday season. These will only be around for a short while, going away just after Christmas. Be sure to take a look at what they contain because the value really adds up for these. They have the same Diamonds as you'd get from a normal bundle, but with bonus Keys and lots of rare holiday pets, heads, and other cosmetics.

We're still on track to close out the year exiting Early Access and launching Season 1 of AirMech Strike! Join us in chat for lots of giveaways and fun.

General Updates:
  • New Welcome screen on startup
  • Tab instantly switches loadouts ingame
  • Alternates now save in loadouts properly
  • 3 Special Holiday Bundles added
  • Do Not Disturb button moved to be easier to access
  • Mic defaults to push to talk on new accounts (there is a game setting for this)
  • Move mic status button so you can click on it easier to mute
  • Gold VIP status now active for anyone with $50 USD (localized) lifetime spend
Bug Fixes:
  • various desync and crash fixes
  • Gold VIP auto-rolling should be fixed
  • fix camera behavior at end of Salt matches

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...



Snow is falling, so it was time to hang the lights up and get ready for Holiday merry making! The lobby has been given a makeover to get ready for our Christmas events. Keep an eye out for us adding more holiday content as we approach the big day!

A really nice fix with some rooms getting stuck with missing players. This gave us quite a headache to try and track down, because we could see players should be matching but would get stuck with players with the wrong state jamming the queue. Things should be running smoothly now, and just ask in chat if you suspect something is stuck.

Due to popular demand, we've made it possible to do 2v3 and 1v3 custom games against bots. You can't do 3v1, this is only for testing to see if you can win against the new awesome bots. It may be possible to 1v3 against the lower level bots (their difficulty is based on the order you unlock them in), but I would be extremely surprised if anyone can win 1v3 against Erik, Goh, and Samson. If you can do it be sure to save the replay, or even better put it on Twitch or YouTube!

Gold VIP changes are upon us! This was discussed a long time ago, and we realize we need to finish it before we leave Early Access. (we have a big checklist of things to do) We are removing the timed/expiring Gold VIP status and simplifying things. This will make it easier to understand, as well as carry over to Wastelands nicer. The "automatic" grant of Silver VIP has always been at $10 USD, and Diamond VIP at $120. We're making Gold VIP now automatic at a total of $50 USD spent over the lifetime of your AirMech account. There are some tweaks to how the bonus rewards stack and that will all be sorted soon, on the generous side.

What about players with a lot of Gold VIP Cubes? Or a lot of Gold VIP time? Most players know about the process to "pull" Gold VIP time off and turn it into Cubes. These cubes were used for various crafting recipes, and they will continue to work for that. And we'll all more that are for Wastelands (mentioning it here since the vast majority of people this applies to also have Wastelands). The Cubes themselves are being renamed to Gold Bars and Gold Coins. There is no conversion process, just their art and names are changing, which makes everything else still work nicely.

General Updates:
  • add option for uneven teams for custom games (only for humans vs bots)
  • show Diamond Rolls (and other rolls) when chat is minimized, and making it roll as you click and open it
  • Helix gets an additional RPG for every point in his primary ability
  • effects work for Angel Sniper Stasis shot
  • Gold VIP Cubes changed to Coins and Bars
  • Christmas and winter lobby themes

Bug Fixes:
  • fix for rooms with AFK players (actually offline players)
  • VIP Shop Tickets now function properly
  • various crash fixes
  • improve reconnect on Login server restart to reduce chance of dropping

Tietoja pelistä

AirMech® Strike is a fast paced Action-RTS game that can be played online competitively or cooperatively. Earn Kudos and Experience in battle and unlock a wide collection of AirMechs and Units while you practice the perfect strategy to emerge victorious!

AirMech has recently undergone a huge overhaul to prepare the game to leave Early Access. This includes a new 3D lobby, new Matchmaking and Ranking system, and a return of Custom games and a Lobby browser. This version is actively replacing many of the old systems of the game, so we appreciate your patience while we finish this significant improvement. We believe that upgrading AirMech to Strike is a better approach than making AirMech 2, since it keeps all your current progress.

Some of the systems we have experimented with during Early Access which do not fit Strike's PvP focus are coming to AirMech Wastelands, a companion game which does not contain any PvP. Look for that coming soon!

Key Features:

  • Action-RTS Transformed: DotA-style gameplay with transforming robots each with their own unique stats and abilities. Fast paced action and shorter game lengths keep the battle intense!
  • Customize Your Army: Choose your AirMech and your Units to take into battle and help your team claim victory. Also unlock custom Variant AirMechs (skins) to have a unique look ingame.
  • Control Options: Supports both mouse/keyboard and Xbox 360 gamepad. Controls can also be completely customized for personal preference.
