'Exteel' Shutting Down In September

by Rainier on July 28, 2010 @ 7:20 p.m. PDT

Exteel is an online game featuring stylized action in a universe filled with robots on a far off world where the exiled survivors of a lost war struggle against each other for control of the planet's resources. This is a departure from most online games, where instead of creating and managing a human or other organic player race, gamers create, customize and develop their own robots using a robust character creation tool. Exteel features easy-to-access gameplay and a unique merging of strategic combat and high-speed action reminiscent of the stunning action seen in Hong Kong martial arts movies.

NCsoft’s Team Beam puts you in command of a Mechanaught – a powerful bipedal walking war machine. On Exteel’s futuristic battlegrounds, these giant robots are the key to ultimate victory.

Choose a high-speed, light-weight model, wielding dual-blades, or choose a lumbering heavy-weight unit armed with a devastating siege cannon. Create your own devastating Mechanaught using thousands of parts and weapons in almost unlimited combinations! Test your mettle in Exteel, a fully-loaded, futuristic shooter that puts you in control of a heavily armored, completely customizable mech. Playing a mercenary pilot, you'll charge into combat, destroy your opponents, and compete for total domination.

Modify your mech and stamp out the competition as you progress through intense player-versus-player battles - learn devastating special maneuvers, upgrade vital parts, and equip deadly assault weapons.

Lock onto the enemy - the next generation of mechanized warfare is here!

This is a global shutdown, and not based on our server alone.

NCcoins will no longer be available for sale through our website, and Game Time Cards can no longer be used to add additional coins to any account. Current Game Time Cards that have not been applied can be used for any other NCsoft game. New game account and forum account creation will be disabled. We encourage anyone who has coins currently on your account to spend them as soon as possible. Please use all of your coins as no refunds will be provided.

In late August, we will have an event where all items will be available for 1 credit only so that everyone has the chance to experience any weapon, mech, build, etc that they ever could have wanted. Your coins should be used before that time. Additionally, we will be rewarding our loyal players who purchased NCcoins for the time and money they have invested in Exteel. More information about the loyalty rewards will be available in late August.
