After a successful launch on PC, Mac and Linux last year, Ironcast is making its console début on the PS4 and Xbox One this March.
Ironcast is set in an alternative Victorian history where refined men and women commanded gigantic mechanised war machines, laying waste to enemies of the British Empire. As Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall walking Ironcast. Gamers must face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880’s Victorian England.
Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast’s various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy their opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapon fire is due.
I had a chance to play Ironcast at EGX 2015 and it looked very promising then. It manages to merge tactical gameplay with the addictive gameplay of a match em up game.
Ironcast is due out March 1st & 2nd on the PS4 (date depends upon region) and March 4th on the Xbox One.
