What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Ship the Game to Steam Users
Early Access is a great way to have Hover Tank Arena shipped to you in a playable and enjoyable state while further development and expansion continues. It is an opportunity for you to support this game now so a more robust set of game mechanics and features can continually be added to it as the game grows!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Online Multiplayer is the Goal for a Full Release
This game will be in early access until Online Multiplayer can be fully implemented. I estimate it is going to be between 8 to 10 months from release that Online Multiplayer will be a part of the game.

Game mechanics and cosmetic upgrades will continue to be developed along side the Multiplayer version of the game. The Single-Player version that currently exists will continue to expand and grow as the Multiplayer is being developed.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

The Full Version is a Complete Experience
Along with the goal of multiplayer, many game mechanics are going to be added to the Hover Tanks and the Combat model. Hover Tanks (HTs) will have "Upgrades" that will buff the HTs chassis in different ways. Planned additions are along the lines of; Energy Shields, Armor Plating, Boosters, and more! Also, HTs will have "Add Ons" that can bolt to each chassis to add functions. Planned Add Ons are; Radar (adds mini map and target cycling), Smoke Screens, Drones, Field Repair Bots, EMPs, and more!

Along with game mechanics, HTs will have multi cosmetic features as well:
Paint Schemes (Customize your HT)
HT Driver Avatars (Customize your driver)
Mech Select (Choose the different Mechs for your team)

Game Modes
The full version of the game will have different game modes available as well. Currently, the plan is that these will be playable in Single-Player and Multi-Player modes.
Capture the Flag
Territory Control
Team Deathmatch
Invasion
...and more...”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Plays Like You Expect!
The game is fully functional as a Single-Player Arena Combat game against AI teams. The current game mode is an "Arena" mode and is Team Based. You play as the "Green" Team against HTs and Mechs on the "Blue" and "Red" Teams. Your Team consists of your HT and at least one AI wingman HT and one AI Mech. To win a match, you must destroy all other combatants. Surviving a match with other Teams still in play results in a "DRAW". Dying is a "LOSS".

Every time you win in an Arena, you unlock the next Arena to play. Every time you gain a Tier Level, you unlock more weapons you are able to purchase.

You can buy more HTs with XP you gain during gameplay.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

Own the Entire Game
The price of the game will increase at full-release once Multiplayer is added. It will not increase as more game mechanics or cosmetics are added or while in Early Access. Only the "Full Release" of the game will result in a price increase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

Your Voice Matters
The greatest appeal of Early Access for this game is involve the players in it's development! As we build a community together, your feedback and interactions with the Developer will influence and elevate the games state. That way, Hover Tank Arena benefits from the people that matter the most - You the Players!

Game Mechanics

  • Hover Tank combat using a primary set of weapons and a secondary turret mounted weapon.
  • Manage the heat of your weapons as you play. Heavy use will overheat weapons at different rates and can cause them to lock-up.
  • Hover Repair Bays: Make sure to repair your Hover Tank when it has critical damage! Dock into a Hover Repair Bay to restore your Armor Points.
  • Team Based Combat: Three teams of Hover Tanks and Mechs will battle in every arena. You, as the Green team, will compete to destroy the Red and Blue team combatants.
  • Unlock Arena Maps as you win.
  • Spend the currency you earn in-game on new and better weapons as they get unlocked by advancing through the Arena Maps.
  • Use earned XP to unlock new and better Hover Tank Chassis as you play.

ARENA MAPS
Play across several types of arena maps with different environments. Hotter maps cause weapons to heat up quicker while cooler maps will allow you to use weapons longer before they heat up.
