Merkava Avalanche

Merkava Avalanche will come to PlayStation 4 in addition to PC, publisher Unties and developer Winter Crown Works announced.

The PlayStation 4 version of the 3D robot cavalry action game will be playable for the first time this week at Paris Games Week 2017.

Here’s an overview of the game, via its official website:


In Merkava Avalanche, there is no concept of HP.

Instead, there are only two ways to defeat enemy Merkavas: either by bringing them down to their knees and finishing them off once they’re defenseless, or, under certain conditions, by dealing piercing damage, instantly vanquishing them.

But doing so is by no means a matter of chance.

Whether you can pull off such a feat depends on your speed, angle, attack type, whether your target has a shield, and more.
