Open-world mech FPS MetalCore reveals new gameplay footage
The new short footage shows off on-foot FPS gameplay, but also mech and aircraft action.
The team behind MetalCore, an upcoming open-world NFT-based mech FPS has revealed new gameplay footage in a recent tweet.
While the footage may only be 30 seconds long, that doesn’t mean the video isn’t packed with a diverse range of action showcasing a good amount of the kind of gameplay players can expect to experience. In MetalCore players will be able to use a variety of different air and land vehicles, and in this video we do get to see the player trying to gun down an aircraft and a ground vehicle, but we also get brief glimpses of what it’s like to be in control of not only an aircraft, but two different types of mechs as well – one slower, spider-like mech that seems to pack a lot of punch, and another more mobile machine. This however is just a small sample of the full game that is set to feature 48 different collectible and rentable vehicles that players will be able to upgrade and customize in a variety of different ways.
The video seems to show a slice of a mission that will be playable in the game’s open-world PvE sandbox, and while this does mean that players will be able to enjoy a sort of single-player experience, the primary focus is multiplayer gameplay, or specifically, the PvP Faction War. In this game mode, three factions battle for control of planet Kerberos. Choose a faction and fight for territorial control through a series of PvP battles called Battle Zones. These 100-player matches can last up to an hour, with the faction that has control of most of the tactical points for a certain period of time emerging as the victor. A faction may also win by destroying the enemy base, by having the opposing team drain all its Respawn points and more. Each player has a certain number of lives in a Battle Zone, leaving the battle once there are no lives left.
