Що бажають сказати розробники:

Чому дочасний доступ?

Dark Horizons : Mechanized Corps has been brought to the Steam Early Access program by its development team at Max Gaming Technologies, LLC. in order to enable fans of this genre to have the greatest influence possible on the title’s development.

We are all mech fans here at Max Gaming Technologies, LLC., so we know how passionate many of you are about wanting a great Mech combat experience. As such we want to ensure that each of our supporters has the opportunity to help influence the game's development as much as possible. Not to just refine and tweak the experience, but to make it more Mech smashing bad-ass with each and every release!

Приблизно, як довго гра буде у дочасному доступі?

“Our goal is to have Dark Horizons : Mechanized Corps completed some time in 2015. However with this said, this is just an estimate and is entirely dependent upon just how awesome you guys are at supporting the game while it is in Early Access through your purchase of the game and with the fantastic feedback that we know you the community want to give.”

Чим повна версія гри буде відрізнятись від версії для дочасного доступу?

“The initial Early Access version of the game contains much of the core combat game play for Dark Horizons : Mechanized Corps. The initial Early Access version of the game will launch with a handful of missions and game types, the ability to play on and offline, and will contain the starter Mechs for each class along with a variety of weapons and equipment to customize each Mech with.

As we develop thru Early Access our goal is to iteratively enhance the game towards the full release content plans, which will include many additional Mechs, weapons, updated graphics and animations, game play modes and features and our full vision of the persistent online battle engine called "Faction Wars".

Faction Wars will be an online representation of the Dark Horizons Universe with a persistent war map where player driven squads and factions will play to capture territory, gain in-game bonuses and fight for superiority. Features will include large map battles, small recon and raid type battles, arena competitions and allow players to earn in-game credits to build out their Mechs.

The full version will also have a full set of support for many popular Steam features including a full set of stats, leaderboards, achievements, full controller support, Big Picture support and SteamOS. Again, many of these features will be available as they are integrated during Early Access.”

Який поточний стан версії для дочасного доступу?

“While Dark Horizons : Mechanized Corps is currently in “Alpha”, core functionality is implemented and playable. However, players should expect bugs, possible crashes, game play balancing tweaks, frequent updates and an enjoyable game experience while helping influence development.

Current feature include but are not limited to:
  • 4 Mech Classes
  • 40+Full Mech customization
  • 6 playable levels
  • 4 game play models (Attrition, Team Death Match, Free For All, Mini-Nuke)
  • Online and offline game support

We recommend that you not buy or play the game during Early Access unless you clearly understand what Early Access is and are interested in helping improve the game during its development.”

Чи буде відрізнятись ціна гри на протязі дочасного доступу та після його завершення?

“Please note that the Dark Horizons : Mechanized Corps will likely be in “Early Adopter” status until some time in 2015, as such our current pricing has been set to reflect its ‘in early development’ nature.

As we reach new milestones, you may see the price of the game increase to reflect this new content. As an early adopter of the Dark Horizons : Mechanized Corps you will be entitled to all future updates (including DLC) for free.”

Як ви плануєте залучати спільноту до розробки гри?

“While Dark Horizons : Mechanized Corps is in Early Access we will be capturing anonymous analytics data and interacting as closely as we can to community here on Steam. While we have a big list of things we want to accomplish with this game, we know that what is most important is ensuring that we fine tune, enhance and provide new content that will help make the game experience right at every stage possible.

We want to recapture what helped make our first mech title Dark Horizons Lore : Invasion both a 2005 IGF finalist and a cult classic by making the game more than just something you kill time in, but by making it an experience that you partake in and feel a part of as the game changes and adapts via the Faction Wars feature as it happens. As such your involvement in the game and its community is critical towards what the final outcome of the game will be.”

DHMC - State of Live Development 6/26/15

Where we've been

We launched in July of last year, and started development on the Steam project a bit over a year ago once we received Greenlight support. The game was based off a project that we had started developing on and off in 2010, but since we launched on Steam, players have been seeing a game being build pretty much from the ground up.

Doing Live development was not new to us, but this was the first time we started it so early in the process and we have to say that it has been very rewarding for the team. Though we have had a couple moments where we have been slow to get new updates, the response we have gotten both positive and constructive criticism is exactly what we were hoping.

The Present

We have the core game elements now functional for our Faction Wars system, including base mission mechanics, economy system, mech customization system, persistent balance of power map, squad management systems and our core mech functionality, and basic AI functionality.

The game has come a long way, but we know that some of the systems are still rough (i.e. Mech movement, AI functionality for SP and online support, and visual fidelity). So for our next part of the journey and to live up to expectations set by ourselves and all those whom have and continue to support us we are taking steps to improve in these areas.

The Road map

Though we are not putting dates on the roadmap at this time, we can tell you we are already working on several of these items. As we get close to implementation we will be sharing details.

- Updated AI systems and Single Player
-- The current AI system is receiving updates in the next couple patches to make SP and MP games involving AI bots a more competitive experience.
-- We will be updating to a new AI system that allows us to bring to the game a more compelling SP experience, along with bolster AI support of Faction Wars missions.
- Engine updates
-- Updates to visual Fidelity to bring in line with modern game engines
-- Physics and animation system updates
-- Updates to hit detection
- New Gameplay modes for MP and SP missions
- New customization's
-- New equipment pieces (repair bots, ammo stations, radar jammers, etc...)
-- New ammo system allowing you to purchase ammo per weapon
-- New torso and legs combos
- Cross platform support. We will still be pushing a Linux branch client out that does not support the Steam overlay. As we work toward updating our visual fidelity and adding more AAA features we will be working also toward a fully functional Linux and then Mac Client.

The Team

Many do not know that Max Gaming is a fully functional game studio whom has been part of development of well over 50 titles across mobile and PC games over the last decade. We are mainly funding development of DHMC ourselves with help from EarlyAccess. With the focus now shifting to bringing more Polish to all aspects of the game we have been able to add more resources.

Outside of adding a couple more programmers and a art resource, we have also asked one of our long time community members to join as to help with the community. We would like to welcome DeMyztikX to the team, whom will be helping us get the word out, be the point person on setting up community events and available to answer question on the forums.

You should still expect updates to the game every 2-4 weeks, and we will be ramping up our community and public relations output over the next couple months.

As a fan of the Mech Assult series on the original Xbox, This is a great game to play to help feed my hunger for more. Now thats not saying its AS good. But its still a fun game. There is no tutorial, No description for the game modes, But on the upside its a easy to learn game. The combat is not as polished, and is a little sluggish. once you learn your best loadout it gets much better.

Pros: Mech Warrior like feel, Plenty of customization, Fun (yet not polished) firefights.

Cons: No Story mode (yet it seems to have some story mentioned in game modes) No tutorial or description for gameplay.

Bottom line: Its a great game worth the money and has lots of potential.

For an early access game this was surprisingly good, I mean few issues, relative stability, workable controls, it was all there. However I was only there for the mechs, and the game did have a few mechs for you to play with. Basically there's 4 default mechs that fall into the light to heavy catergories, then you have the option to build your own mech. Now I know at this point you're probably drooling, but the options are limited. Basically you pick a chasis, and you;ll be using the same chasis as one of the defualts, so there isn't a lot of variety there. 4 chasis, which you can customize the paint, camo, stickers, and logos on, then you get to add some weapons to your mech's hardpoints. Each chasis has its own base armor rating as well as speed, and point level. So everything you add onto your mech costs points, and adding extra armor will take points and reduce your overall speed.

Weapon types are very vanilla, gatling guns, lasers, rockets, flamethrowers, nothing out of the ordinary or jaw dropping for that matter. However you can still customize quite a bit, trying to create that perfect battle mech. I go with low overload weapons, usually gatling guns, gatling lazers, and maybe a rocket pod so I can spam my opponet. Most players I saw were using the railguns and after a few shots would overload their weapons then stand around like an idiot while they waited for their weapons to cool down.

Your mech has several hit locations on them, each with its own raiting. So your opponent, or you, can prioritize certain parts. For me and my mech Tiny Savage, I circle my opponet and target the legs, once the legs go you'll have a hard time being able to turn effectively, then I just keep running circles and blast away. Or you could knock out a certain weapon system, or just shoot at whatever part of the mech you feel like. Just note that once your cockpits health gets low, you'll start to seem some distortion going on, and you'll have a hard time seeing things. If this happens, or your mech has taken a beating, just find your nearest repair center which will have combat ready in no time.

I will say that the AI is dumb, like dumb as a bag of rocks. Often times they will just run to a location and stand there the entire game. Other times they'll take a certain amount of damage and immediately stop fighting and run back to their base to try and repair themselves. Matches can take a while to complete, especially attrition, because somehow those ticket counters never seem to go down fast enough.

Overall I would suggest that you check this game out, especially if you're a fan of mechanized combat, but I'd wait and see if this thing goes on sale, because the $19.99/$14.99 I spent was a bit much for an early access game that doesn't have a whole lot of content in it. All things considered though, its a good game, and its fun, I put 76 minutes into without even realizing it. So 7/10 mostly for the lack of mech types available, and the terrible AI, however I expect all of that to be fixed once this game launches fully.

I thought the game played solid. Plenty of Mech variations and weapons. I had no problem climbing in and doing battle. The missions are well made and full featured, and the bots play well. Not bad for early access. I'm sure they'll be adding stuff and tweaking the hell out of it in the coming months. I'm looking forward to when we can form squads and track stats and have an effect on the war. Then this game will become really great.

edit: updated a review to give more info a bit

This is one of the most 'solid' EA release I have ever played. If you are looking for a solid Mechwarrior-like combat, this game can give you that. There are things that need polishing. However, the downside is that you can hardly find people to play with due to the soft launch. Devs are fixing things and will do a proper launch soon.

To top it off, it is a Team vs Team, heavy mech combat. You cannot skate around super fast and do crazy manuever like Armored Cored's mech. Your mech is basically a tank with legs, so no fancy movements.

You build your mech from several chasis(will be adding in the future updates), put on the weapons and equipments. To balance the fight smaller chasis is faster, but less armor, and carry lighter equipments. Bigger chasis is slower, but tougher, more armomr, heavier weapons, however, loadout comes down to the battle points, you cannot just put anything in there, it is limited by battle points for each mech, and different mech will have different points.

The combat itself is fun, especially with another player. There is AI support for both single and multiplayer match, but it is not that smart, however, they do there jobs well, especially when they are with players. Combat will be tactical to certain points that you need to manage your weapons, you can fire all weapons at once or as a selective group, which can be set in the hangar. Weapons have its effective range, some can easily overload your system, and some weapons' projectile do travel the distance, so they can be dodged.

There may be claims that it takes too long to take down a mech, which is not true if you know what you are doing. Your mech (as of the current build) has 3 parts, torso, and 2 legs, and around 7-8 additional parts depending on your loadout. These parts have their own HP, so if you just shoot at every part, not just particular part. It will take a while to take down a mech. Mechs can be take-down by destroying their bodies, or both of their legs.

old:
Nice and Solid Gameplay despite the EA release, but the Soft Launch is killing it slowly.

If you are expecting to get a polished Mech game up front with a large server population, please do not buy this game, watch it with interest but do not buy.

If you want to help participate in helping to flesh out and test a fun Mech combat game this might be for you.

For much less then I blow on a meal, I bought access into this game figuring I would just wait and see. I have found playing just a short while that I can see some potential in this game. Being in an Australian timezone I feel it will be a long time before I can play online with the dedicated servers due to ping and player numbers, so I am restricted to Single player. However the beauty of this game is if I can get enough friends interested, I can run my own dedicated server.

The fact this game even has that mode is GREAT, it adds much more variety & options then the drudgery that is playing MWO, or Hawken.

"SO FAR" the devs are showing interest in the community feedback so far which is great, if they can keep that up, that will help them a long way.

The graphics aren't phenomal, though respectable, the gameplay mechanics work, though do need a lot of work, and the devs are stated that is part of their plan which is good. The overall Vision the developers have for this game is very good, its just a matter of whether they are able to get there.

If you just consider this a Speccie stock purchase, and play a bit now and then and provide feedback it will hopefully help the Devs get this game to where they want.
