Neowiz and developer JellySnow announced that the 2D action-roguelike Metal Unit will release on PC-via Steam on January 28.
The new release date comes after a short delay where the developer planned to implement new end game systems along with additional refinements for the 1.0 version. The developer feels that the game is read-to-go and has finished all major development work; they are currently polishing and fixing small bugs. Other new features include New Game+, Game Skin, and Exhibit Collections.
Metal Unit is a story-driven side-scroller where players will use a range of melee and ranged weapons to fit their playstyle. The game also features rogue-like elements where players will lose their equipment and items if they die, but points gained during gameplay can be used to purchase other items or skills.
The story focuses on Joanna’s main character, as she heads out on her mission to get revenge on her sister, who took up arms with alien invaders. Throughout the story, Joanna will uncover the truth about the world they live in.
Metal Unit is also in development for other platforms, which will be announced at a later date.
