'Steel Legions' Unveils New Features - Screens

In an alternate past, steel, steam, and oil have become essential resources for the military forces of the age: gigantic steel colossi weighing several tons, steered by half a dozen men and women. These machines maintain the balance of power between the four largest empires. But machines require fuel – which is a scarce commodity.

Steel Legions is a 3D browser game in which, during tactical battles against rival teams, players get to showcase their strategic skills. The game environment can be cleverly used to benefit the player. A vehicle on high ground, for instance, will have increased firing power and range. On the other hand, craters and canyons offer better protection against attacking enemies. Other elements that provide players with tactical options during missions include bridges, barriers, turrets, and various buildings.

Of course, along with fast and dynamic PvP missions, long-term construction and upgrades to your own troops' equipment must be taken into account as well. By replacing individual components of Steel Legions combat vehicles, such as chassis, drive mechanism, and armor, as well as primary and secondary weapons, players get to customize their vehicles and influence their combat attributes.

The game map has been completely revised and many details, such as clouds and birds, now embellish the game world. Shadows have been improved and the overall performance has been optimised.

Suggestions from the Steel Legions community have been implemented. For example, the mission balancing has been extensively reworked, players now have tighter missions and fairer enemies available to them. The matchmaking has also been improved, so that waiting times are shorter and players no longer have to wait in the headquarters for new missions to be assigned. In addition, five new team members - doctors, trainers, weapons experts, machinists, and engineers - with a variety of skills are now available.

Along with PvP (player vs. player) missions, Steel Legions users can also expect new PvE (player vs. environment) missions. If players can’t find an opponent, they can face a powerful marauder boss and test their mettle against him.

The game concept focuses especially on beginner-friendliness, simple controls, and a high degree of freedom during the course of the game. Steel Legions will initially be available in English. Localization into German, French, Spanish, and Italian is underway.
