Metal Max Xeno Reborn Brings the Return of the Post-Apocalyptic Open World JRPG To the West This June
PQube Games has announced the release date for Metal Max Xeno Reborn. This is a new edition of Metal Max Xeno, revamping its visuals, battle mechanics and adding other features to it. The new title in the long-running post-apocalyptic open world series will be available for PlayStation 4, Switch and PC -via Steam– on June 10, 2022.
Metal Max Xeno tells the story of a young man called Talis. In a world that turned into a wasteland, mankind struggles to survive against the forces of a mother computer called NOA. Even Asia’s largest metropolis, TOKIO, has been turned into nothing but rubble under those attacks forcing mankind into running and hiding.
Talis is now on a vengeance trip, looking for comrades who can help him overthrow this mighty computer. Not only will you be able to get help from nine other characters, you’ll also have a battle dog called Pochi as your trusty companion.
Part of Talis’ journey revolves around scavenging for tools that will help in this battle. Characters will be able to battle on foot or using strong vehicles such as tanks, making for some impressive scale in battles. Along with the date announcement, PQube has shared a new trailer showing a little of the gameplay including this element, which is a tradition of the Metal Max series.
The Metal Max franchise has been around since 1991, though most of the games sadly weren’t released in the west. Ever since its original NES release, the franchise is known for being a non-linear post-apocalyptic RPG that also features vehicle combats. The original edition of Metal Max Xeno was released in the west by NIS America. A Metal Max Xeno Reborn 2 is currently in development in Japan.
