State of the Game #222: Is that Beta I Hear?





Full Size Image: http://bombdogstudios.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/MAV_MarketingHeader.png

The distant machine gun fire, the Earth shaking booms of howitzers, the roar of a flame thrower. It’s coming, it’s finally coming! On May 2nd, MAV will launch full force into Beta release!

What does this mean?

For starters, a truly MASSIVE content update! New part stats, new sounds, new VFX, new models, new performance increases, new progression system, new UI, new stability, and new controls to the game modes! All that newness laid on top of the core systems that made us love MAV in the first place. I am genuinely ECSTATIC to be sharing this update with you!

This update has been the effort of months of feedback, bug fixing, extensive testing, and a lot of lost sleep :)

Over the next few days I will be putting out more images and videos to show case the update more in-depth, but there is literally so much in it that I can’t cover it all in this post alone!

That said, I am putting out the official ‘Call for help!’ in the marketing department. I need the help of the community to make this update big so all the current owners of MAV will hear about it and join the battle and we can also increase the player base! More players means more awesome multiplayer moments and it also helps support me in continuing to develop MAV!

How can you help?

It’s really easy! Just tell everyone one you know about the game! I will make sure the game is worth talking about, but for me to focus on that, I need you, the community, to share it with your friends! Together, we can create an amazing game!

Stay tuned this week, more information and material will be coming!

About This Game

M.A.V. is a custom mech combat game with a core focus on tactical combat and customization.
You play as a MAV pilot, fighting against an oppressive government trying to turn your home into a forced labor camp. You will be able to build your MAV, piece by piece, into the perfect weapon for your fighting style. You will need to use teamwork and a steady aim to fight against other MAV's and military forces to protect your home and take back the areas conquered by others.
Take part in a persistent war across the surface of Europa, fighting against other rebel factions and the United Earth Council. Join with your friends to create your own faction, capture territories through hard fought battles, spend resources to get new parts for your MAV and upgrade the defenses of your territories, and possibly deploy a game changing Mega Weapons.

Key Features

  • You can choose from thousands of parts across over 30 different categories to design and build your MAV, from the ground up, or pick from community shared designs.
  • Fight in many different game modes, with the freeform Arena and Siege mode, to the single player story, or the persistent campaign mode.
  • Experience intense mech combat, with realistic projectiles, physics based weapon recoil, individual part damage, and fantastic environments.
  • In the campaign mode, build up your captured territories with additional defenses, place turrets to help fight off invaders, and hire and recruit AI rebels to fight alongside you. Changes you make on a territory level effect the battlefields and can change the balance of power.

Early Access Review
This game is a real treat. The Dev is also a really dedicated guy that knows the exact kind of game people want and isn't afraid to listen to all inputs.

One man made this and it shows but not in a negative way, eveything is polished, consistent (!RELEVANT!) updates, no DayZ ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ttery here. Things get fixed once they are found, and M.A.V. today is pretty damn good. It isn't finished and it might not be for awhile but the pace has been set, and is consistent.

Bring your friends and woop their asses in chicken death walkers that have cannons on them!

This filled the void in my heart that Chromehounds left. Thanks a lot for starting this up. So much potential.

0.6.0 WHEN!?

Decent in its current state, looks to only be getting better. Dev is very active in the community, I recommend dropping in on one of his dev streams. Community so far small, but enthusiastic.

Early Access Review
This game is very similar to another game that SEGA killed: Chrome Hounds. The developer took great consideration as to make it as close as possible to the greastest mech game that I have ever played and added some unique features into it as well.

Along with always ensuring the game is running smoothly to updating and patching any issues that players come across, the Bombdog Studios creators are in fact genius with this game.

I have not "mastered" all of the different roles and am still currently re-learning the controls and gameplay, but it is an outstanding game to kill a lot of time with either by yourself or with friends.

Chromehounds with an active dev and fun community. Also you have to check out the dev stream. Amusing to say the least. Weapons Armor and mountion options all the best things about t Mech combat games. Oh and you not having fun until your slow mech burns to the ground by something with less than half your firepower -_-
