Battle Rage is the third person shooter with elements of the beat’em up game that allows a player to control giant robots. Battles between the robots take place on carefully selected battlegrounds (so called “arenas”) and they are short, quick, brutal skirmishes. The player can fight alone (versus one, two or even three opponents) or in the team with one sidekick. Every machine has it’s own weapons (for melee and distance combat), additional weapon types can be collected on the arena.
The player can modify robot’s parameters in the single player mode as well as in the multiplayer to fit it’s possibilities to his/her own fighting style. Also many new, powerful robots will wait for the player to unlock in the story mode.
Exodus It all begun in 2036 with invention of The Drive. After nearly a century the humanity turned it’s eyes at the stars again. First the Moon and then Mars, so unwelcoming and mysterious, had to submit to mankind’s expansion. Space became swarmed with shiny hulls of ships. Cosmos turned into an obsession. It was an everyman’s dream to witness, at least once, extraterrestrial wonders. Whether it was the surface of the Silver Globe bruised with craters, or for many years intriguing, “human face” – Cydonia. The governments were competing with propaganda, promising the volunteers piles of gold and the glory of conquerors. Those who believed them, mostly found tough, dangerous life and uncertain fate. However, they wouldn’t back off.
The Colonization Era has come.
Creation When you want to penetrate the mysteries of Cosmos you need more then just sheer determination. Quickly it turned out how much we are dependant on machines that we create. So we built more - each bigger and more advanced than the previous. We designed metal giants in our own image – Shells. We considered them the finest tools in the history of craftsmanship.
The Golden Age of humanity was to last forever.
The Fall Delighted with our creation, we disregarded teachings of history. After what happened, many theories that would allow to prevent tragic events emerged. If we were that creative before, we might have saved thousands innocent lives. We died instead, like the passengers of “Titanic”, driven by our vanity. Ironically, our greatest and most promising undertaking – “New Hope” – turned into a flaming tomb for countless.
So begun the end of Colonization Era.
Renaissance The „New Hope” incident deprived us of delusions, we were far from perfection. We turned our backs on our Children. Where the luminous, glimmering cosmic cities once stood, heaps of junk laid – the only remnants left by Shells. The fall of such a great idea affected our whole society. Never before criminal records were that high. Boredom and resignation overcame us. It was when the Corporation emerged, finding a niche on the entertainment market. Who would have thought that few, cheaply bought wrecks of Shells and the ruins of an old factory, would start a madness not weaker than that from a couple of years back. Several convicts were offered freedom and money if they were to fight and win in front of the TV cameras. Quickly they have become the true heroes of our bored society.
The Tournament has begun.
