'War Tech Fighters' Early Access Update Adds New Missions, Challenges, Weapons And Plenty More - Trailer

by Rainier on May 7, 2018 @ 7:25 a.m. PDT

War Tech Fighters is a rapid fire, mecha-in-space, action blockbuster game.

Fear comes from all angles, but when you’re placed in the seat of a state-of-the-art ballistic behemoth and forced to effortlessly slice through an oncoming enemy spaceship with your high intensity, energized lazer sword, fear comes at you fast.

Will you fight that fear? Will you revel in the new found power of your devastating automaton equipped with hundreds of upgradable parts and customization options? Will you dropkick the next spaceship that comes your way into oblivion or will you be on the receiving end of a bombarding barrage of ballistic missiles aimed squarely at your face? Will you let some amateur mech, built from the scrap pile, sucker punch you into orbit or will you tear them apart with the fury of a raging battle bot screaming to the astral heavens WTF JUST HAPPENED!!

Become your mecha and fully customize its appearance and loadout in some of the most over the top action this side of the galaxy in what could be described as the love child between Michael Bay and Evangelion. You’ll lead the assault on Zatros with fists of iron and lazer sword in hand, as you pilot your fully equipped, spaceship shredding War Tech, built to fight for the rebel colonies of Hebos and Ares and reclaim your homeland.

Designed for mecha enthusiasts and fans of intense space combat action, War Tech Fighters early access launch will provide the chance for its robo-battling community to help balance the game’s deep upgrade system and flow of gameplay styles. War Tech Fighters brings mecha destroying fans the chance to play in all out action, stealth and puzzle sections while taking on single player missions, simulator challenges and survival arenas.

Traveling across the galaxy, the rebel colonies of Hebos and Ares join forces to battle against the Zatros empire with the deadliest weapons ever built – War Techs. Taking space combat to a whole new level, War Techs are giant mechas that combine cold precision and state of the art technology to the battlefields of space.

War Tech Fighters is a space action game that combines the spectacular action of Japanese Anime with Hollywood Blockbusters. Configure, upgrade and customize your War Tech and dive into battle to fight back the Zatronian forces and save your Galaxy.


War Tech Fighters is getting its Supernova Update today, the last major update before it leaves Steam’s Early Access and moves to a full release. The update is filled with new content to further enhance the action-packed love letter to Western Blockbusters and Japanese Mecha Anime.

With the launch of the Supernova Update today, Drakkar Dev have delivered the penultimate step in their Early Access development. The final elements of the game will then be added and the game will be made ready for a full release, launch in Summer 2018.

"This is one of the biggest updates the game has received so far. Based on feedback from the community, we have added 5 new story missions, 4 new challenges, new Survival Arena and new weapons, components, performance enhancements and fixes," commented Manlio Greco, CEO of Drakkar Dev. "Once launched, we will turn our attention to completing the final elements of the game and ending our 12 month mission. To say we are excited is an understatement."
