Heavy Metal Machines is a one-of-a-kind 4v4 multiplayer arena combat game where you deal devastating destruction to the beat of a raucous heavy metal soundtrack.

Heavy Metal Machines is a one-of-a-kind 4v4 online multiplayer arena combat game, retiring tried-and-true fantasy heroes for unique vehicular death machines, piloted by a cast of larger-than-life post-apocalyptic road warriors that deal devastating destruction to the beat of a raucous heavy metal soundtrack. The Heavy Metal Machines closed beta will feature eight playable characters and a progression system to unlock unique skills, skins and abilities. A training mode and daily quests to challenge beta participants will also be available. 

In a post-­apocalyptic landscape ravaged by its own inhabitants, society has been reforged through metal and madness. A new breed of gladiators delivers mayhem and relentless destruction through visceral vehicular combat. The rules for the arena are simple: two teams enter, one team leaves. The four-player team that succeeds in decimating the enemy’s base first wins. Forget gasoline - the Heavy Metal Machines and their insane drivers run on pure adrenaline!

Indie developer Hoplon announced that it has launched their Heavy Metal Machines Season Three content – The Sect of Metal.

These sanctimonious guardians have taken over Metal City, claiming it as their own and have set about converting the current survivors.  Ruling Metal City with an iron fist, these crusaders will stop at nothing to retain their control and spread the word of the sect.

Featuring new cosmetic rewards for those who convert to the Sect of Metal, this update kicks off Season Three of the Metal Pass. It also features new skins for characters Rampage, Little Monster and Killer J.

The King of Rage, Rampage, has made his heavy metal Bulldozer a sanctuary. Little Monster’s monster truck has been converted and has a new model mocking Full Metal Judge’s vehicle. Lastly, the clown, Killer J, is dressed in the colours of the sect, mocking Metal Herald - the Pope of Heavy Metal Machines.Eros Carvalho, Head of Studio and Development for Hoplon commented: “The Metal Pass continues to allow us to explore parts of the lore within the game which may not be immediately obvious to our community, whilst offering players rewards for progressing though the tier system. We have a rich depth of lore to explore, and the ’Sect of Metal’ is just the start. It really has allowed our artists and creative teams flex their muscles and dive deep into this part of the Heavy Metal Machines setting.

Tatiana Moreira, Head of Marketing and Publishing, commented: “We’re proud of how closely we get to work with our community on upcoming updates. We are constantly working on towards new features based on the community’s feedback, which is where this season started. They were the first to know about the Season 3 theming and were quick to give us their thoughts and feedback whilst it was still in development. Their approval is vital to us, so we like to get them involved as soon as possible – they have already had a sneak peak and what’s in store for Season four of the Metal Pass, and making their opinions known.
