Neowiz announced that they will publish the JellySnow-developed 2D action-adventure Metal Unit will release on PC-via Steam Early Access in early 2020.
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.
Ji-Soo Moon, the CEO of Neowiz, remarked, “I’m proud to present another indie title like ‘Metal Unit’ to go along with our previously announced deal with ‘Skul: The Hero Slayer’. We’re looking forward to taking these games global and showing the world how unique and special they really are.”
Metal Unit is scheduled to release on Steam Eary Access in early 2020 along with other platforms shortly after. The game will host a Beta Test for Creators before the game goes live. Beginning on December 20, the developer will begin accepting applications for the Beta Test program.
