New Map: Decay!

We've got a new map you can play in Solo or Custom games! As it becomes finalized we'll move it into the normal multiplayer pool.

It's a bigger map, though the two Forts are near eachother at the top, dividied by a large no man's land filled with floating mines. There's a lot of new double-wide ramps placed around, removing a lot of the bottlenecks and choke points.

Go straight for the enemy Fort? Or move to the bottom of the map and secure more Outposts? Lots of interesting debate already which side is better in this large asymmetric map.

Oh, and it's Double XP Weekend remember. :)

Steam Exclusive Offer





Two Portal themed items are now available to all Steam players:

Companion Cube - Found in the ruins of a long abandoned facility, there's something about this utilitarian cube that compels you to keep it at your side. It follows your AirMech in battle acting as a faithful companion Pet until the end! Can be equipped in a Flair slot on any AirMech.

Sentry Turret - Blueprints for this turret were found in a large underground facility in use before the War. They seem to have been designed for use against humans, so this version is equipped with armor piercing rounds to make it more viable against the robot armies used in battle today. They are light and cheap, only effective against weaker units, but you can build a lot quickly to make them useful.

This game handles free-to-play very well, and it is certainly not a pay-to-win game, basically the only thing you can get with cash in this game is cosmetic items, and honestly, I find myself buying a lot of these to deck out my airmechs and make them look cool, but another great thing about this game's economy is the pricing, you can get about 3 new airmechs for 5$ depending on how expensive they are.

On to the gameplay, there are a wide variety of units to choose from which I think makes this game pretty interesting, I love unlocking new units and playing around with them. There are also a wide variety of airmechs, pilots and parts, each with their own advantages and disadvantages, and there is a very large amount of customization in this game, which I love.

I spend a lot of time playing this game now, and it's quite addicting, if you get this game, I would highly reccomend getting the starter kit for 10$ to get the full experience, but you should play the game a bit for yourself first to see if you yourself really like this game, because this game also does not push you into buying the premium version (Silver VIP), for example, when you have premium, you get diamonds (Cash currency) for getting cetain achievments, but if you get Silver VIP, any diamonds from achievments you would have obtained before you got Silver VIP will be stockpiled up, and you can collect all of them after getting Silver VIP. Probably one of the best parts about the starter kit is that you get enough diamonds to buy practically anything you want which is great.

Overall this is a very fun and interesting strategy game, and I would highly reccomend playing it.

After reading through this, I've realized that it almost sounds like I was payed to write this review, but I wasn't, it's just that good, Carbon Games is a great company, thank you very much for making this great game, and not being stingy with the pricing either!

10/10

It's a great game and has unique gameplay; the fact that you can pick up your creeps and drop them behind enemy lines brings new tactics that are otherwise unavailable in other MOBA games. It also has great unit and character designs, with each having their own strengths, skills and weaknesses. Each Airmech (the player-controlled aircraft/combat mech) has VERY different strengths and abilities. No cookie-cutter, copy-and-paste stuff here. No sirree. This game also allows you to purchase a pack (Airmech Prime) that contains all the airmechs and a large number of units, pilots, and parts(for real money, obviously).

Free players have access to all the content in the game (with the exception of the cosmetics and very few items). Some quests give diamonds (premium currency). Now for the bad news: for free players, ALL diamonds are locked until you make a purchase with real money (5$ or more). The game does allow you to take surveys for free diamonds, but I have received a single diamond for the waste-of-time surveys even though I received in-game mail saying that I got them.

This game is pretty good, however, with very few flaws (that I've personally experienced thus far, so I cannot speak for everyone else). Obviously my only annoyance is the locked diamonds (I just want all my guys in red! That's literally all). I do, however, recommend this game to anyone who doesn't mind paying a little money. I also recommend this game to free players who don't mind the locked premium currency that "you get for free".

Love the game so far, IT IS NOT P2W. Anything that can be bought to enhance performance with DIAMONDS (The pay-to-get currency) can only be used in CO-OP vs AI games. I think a lot of people don't realise that and quit thinking it's P2W. Cosmetic items are bought with Diamonds but parts and new mechs can ONLY be bought with KUDOS the currency you get for playing games. This game needs more attention as it is GREAT. I love it so much so far.
