Neowiz launched a new update for the JellySnow-developed 2D action-roguelike Metal Unit, available now on Steam Early Access.
The update allows Early Access players to play through 10 new lave-theme dungeons. These additional levels contain new items and challenges that will put the player’s skills to the test. Additionally, players can fight their way through 30 new lava-themed maps in the game’s story mode that lead up to a new end boss. The chapter focuses on uncovering the truth about the Metal Unit and the Aliens.
The update also contains a new upgrade system where players can explore new paths and defeat enemies quicker. And lastly, players can take on puzzles that grant special items.
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 the main character, Joanna, 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 line in.
Metal Unit is also in development for other platforms.
