Heavy Gear Assault Kickstarter Launches Today
Heavy Gear Assault, the upcoming PC online multiplayer mecha title, went live on Kickstarter today. The goal is to reach $800,000, and this is after raising more than $118,000 on their site that lead to a temporary server crash thanks to an overwhelming response.
Developed by Mektek Studios and published by Stompy Bot Productions, Heavy Gear Assualt is based of the table-top gaming franchise introduced in Canadian publisher Dream Pod 9 in 1994.
Here is a short description of what to expect from Heavy Gear Assault straight from the official website:
Heavy Gear Assault is the first next-generation, mech sports game in development exclusively for the PC. Featuring destructible environments and Gears, innovative e-sports integration and dynamic gun-to-melee combat, Heavy Gear Assault pushes the boundaries of mech and e-sports games as only Unreal Engine 4 makes possible.
