'Volta-X' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Limited Preview Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on July 30, 2020 @ 6:59 p.m. PDT

Volta-X is a competitive sock-and-bop robot piloting combat/strategy game.

Volta-X is an ode to classic anime of the ‘70s by allowing players to fulfill their childhood dreams of customizing their own bots and battling it out against their friends to see who’s the better pilot!

Volta-X drops players into PvP battles and gives access to each robot’s resource management, making it a fully controlled experience. With steel-piercing lasers, heavy-hitting chain maces, and blazingly fast rocket launchers, players will have no problem building their ultimate combat machine. Once its locked and loaded, they can assign a crew of adorable animal characters with special abilities to pilot them. Utilizing the best loadout will be essential to victory on the robot arena!

Players will take part in the Robot League, a tournament where players compete with their robots in awesome battles to become champions! Taking control of the crew, players will send them from room to room to power up weapons, put out fires, and repair broken equipment.

Of course, earning victory in the Robot League can’t be done purely with the robots themselves. It also requires a happy and healthy crew! Back in the base, players will build new rooms like lounges and cafes to make sure their animal friends are prepared to take on new opponents! Who’s next?

Get ready for some serious heavy metal!

GungHo Online Entertainment America revealed that Volta-X will support crossplay between Nintendo Switch and PC. Players on both platforms will be able to team up and form clans or battle each other online as they climb the ranks of the World Volta Association!

For those who cannot wait to start piloting their own custom mech, GOEA will be holding a free Limited Preview event from August 7, 5 p.m. to August 8, 9 p.m. PDT for PC only - a chance for everyone to experience the game first hand before Volta-X officially launches on August 12.

The preview event will let players craft their own Volta robot as they work through a progressive customization system with thousands of unique combinations, battle against others online in Volta-X’s frenetic real-time combat, and dive into the story, setting the stage for what’s to come.

To sign up, visit the Volta-X website to receive a Steam key to pre-download the game before the event goes live on August 8. 

But it’s not just PvP, players will also be able to dive into Volta-X’s thrilling single-player campaign. There’s more to the life of a Volta pilot than trying to become the best in the World Volta Association (WVA). Follow the characters as they customize their own giant robots and climb the ranks of the WVA tournament. As the story unfolds, the pilots will have to work together to prove themselves as the best of the best, while discovering dramatic secrets about each other, and the global threats lurking in the shadows of the WVA’s past.

Key Features:

  • PERSONALIZE THE PERFECT LOADOUT: Each Volta starts with a similar foundation, but more complicated weaponry adds nearly endless depth and customization options for winning pilots. There’s nothing more satisfying than creating your perfectly balanced loadout and taking on opponents in highly competitive strategic battles!
  • YOUR PILOT’S JOURNEY: Our pilots all had a path that led them to piloting a Volta. Through a single-player campaign, your pilot will qualify for the league and fight tooth and nail to climb the championship ranks. Along the way, pilots may even discover some dramatic secrets about themselves and their world.
  • MANAGE YOUR TEAM’S BASE: The fight itself is only half the battle. Preparation is key, and pilots must be well rested and continually researching ways to level up their arsenal. Take full control of your headquarters to keep your team focused for battle and on the cutting edge of powerful Volta tech.
  • MAKE YOUR MARK ON THE WORLD: Connect with other players in Clans to share strategies and fight each other, keeping your skills sharp. Engage in PVP battles and special Events against the whole world. Only then can pilots prove their mettle by getting to the top of the global leaderboard and making a name for themselves in the World Volta Association!

Volta-X is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC on August 12, 2020 for $19.99.
