Mecha turn-based strategy game Warborn, which was previously planned for release in 2019, has been delayed to spring 2020, new publisher PQube and developer Raredrop Games announced. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
Here is an overview of the game, via PQube:
The Auros system is plagued by chaos, held tight in the deadly grip of conflict. Find a side and deploy for battle in the Variable Armour, a technologically advanced suit of war. With command over this giant robotic weapon, lead a strike force of deadly mecha towards victory and liberation in turn-based tactical combat. The fate of billions rests in your hands.
Choose from four different commanders, each with their own unique Variable Armour, abilities and play style. Tactically place your units, clash with rival mecha, and watch the outcome in dramatic battle sequences inspired by 90s Japanese animation.
Assemble a force to lead into battle by selecting from a range of mass-produced mecha units built for war. Use the differing strengths and abilities of each unit type to suit your command strategy, and call in reinforcements from orbit for extra support on the battlefield.
Drop into the theatre of war and place your mecha in a combat field formed by different area tiles to occupy. Traverse and use varied environmental terrain to your advantage, or capture structures to gain additional resources and secure your supremacy on the battlefield.
Engage the enemy with tactical attack options, using giant weaponry to match the size of your Variable Armour. Inflict status effects, plant traps and support allies using unique unit skills. Once you’ve made your move, get ready to face the enemy in quick-fire turn-based bouts.
Warborn takes place in another universe in a time of war and political uncertainty, where the line between right and wrong is drawn thin. Help liberate the Auros system from galactic tyranny, across a story-driven campaign featuring 10 missions dedicated to each of the four commanders.
Skirmish and Multiplayer
Configure your own match parameters and develop new tactics in Skirmish mode. Or take the battle online to outwit rival commanders across the world in tense one-versus-one battles.
