'Exteel' - Features & Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST

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 next generation mech – called an NxG – a humanoid, walking weapon. On Exteel’s futuristic battleground, giant robots are the key to ultimate victory.
Players create a mercenary pilot who grows in experience and rank through PvP battles. Each pilot can customize his or her personal mech using a robust character creation tool. Ultimately, pilots can store several different mechs in a “hangar” and choose which one to take into combat.

The game features easily accessible gameplay in a blend of high-speed tactics and team-based strategy. The animation for the deadly attack combinations was inspired by Hong Kong cinema.
Exteel was produced using the greatest elements of other popular fighting and shooter games. It is played online and gives players several modes where they can prove themselves in survival mode, or team up with allies to test their mettle in squad-based tactical battles.

Players can design mechs to suit their individual play style. Choose a high-speed, dual-electric blade wielding, elfin-sized mech or a lumbering frame carrying a devastating siege cannon or thousands of other combinations of parts and weapons
