What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The answer to this is very simple: to get as much feedback and insight from you as possible.

Currently, we are working hard on the continued development of Metal Unit to make it the best game it can be. Throughout the EA period, we plan on communicating with you as much as possible and also providing constant updates as to the status of the game’s development (i.e. bugs, design, etc.). Your feedback will be invaluable and we look forward to hearing your original ideas to improve Metal Unit.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan on wrapping up Early Access by the end of Q2 2020 and officially releasing the full version of the game.
During this period, we will adjust and balance the game by improving the existing content and adding new features.”

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

“There will be a huge difference between the full version and the Early Access version.

The full version of Metal Unit will contain the complete ending, new storylines, and countless additional features. On top of that, there will be achievements, trading cards, and all the in-game contents will be updated.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have implemented a massive amount of contents in the current version of Metal Unit;

  • 3 main stages and story chapters
  • More than 50 different monsters and 200 different items
  • Boss monsters on every stage
  • Hidden maps in each stage
  • Normal / Hell mode
  • Unique NPCs
  • Support for 5 different languages

We will continue to update the game’s contents and make improvements to it until the release of the full version of Metal Unit”

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

“The full version will be priced differently upon its release. The exact price of the game is still not decided, but we plan on adding a lot of content for the full version and even possibly adding voice-overs. So you can expect the price of the full version to be higher than the EA version for those reasons.”

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

“Our main objective for having Early Access is to further strengthen communication channels between you and the development team. Currently, we have official Discord, Facebook, and Twitter pages that are open to all players. We will actively communicate through these channels to receive your feedback and answer any inquiries you may have.”

About This Game

Metal Unit tells a tragic story of human survivors and their battle against monsters and machines to regain control of their planet.

The Earth is under siege from all directions, with ancient beings emerging from underground and alien machines descending from space. The fate of the planet hangs in the balance, but you can help tilt the odds by playing as Joanna, a new soldier capable of wearing the powerful M-Unit suit. Follow Joanna on her epic journey to save humanity and get revenge on her traitorous sister that has taken up arms with the alien race.

Key Features:

  • Action-Packed Battle System – You can dash to evade enemies or go on the offensive and chain multiple weapon attacks together to perform devastating combos. The wide of range of melee and ranged weapons at your disposal also give you the ultimate flexibility to take out enemies any way you see fit.
  • Huge & Diverse Environments – You can choose to explore the sprawling surface of the planet or delve deep inside mysterious dungeons. Traveling around the world will progress the story, while going underground offers bigger rewards that may come at a heavy price...
  • Your Decisions Matter – The characters in Metal Unit will suffer through corruption, betrayal and death. But your decisions carry significant weight in key dialogues and certain actions during the game.
  • Roguelite Elements – Upon death the game will convert all equipped items into permanent research points. The points can then be used to unlock new items and skills. You will constantly receive weapons of varying utility and will need to adapt your strategy to match your current equipment.
