Neowiz and developer JellySnow announced that the 2D action-roguelike Metal Unit has been delayed to January 2021.
Currently, the game is available on Steam Early Access, where players have provided feedback to the developers. Based on this feedback, the team has decided to postpone the full launch to release the best possible version of the game. With this delay, the developers have promised that the last chapter of the game will have a stronger impression as it highlights the adventure.
Additionally, the team will implement more changes post-launch to ensure they are always listening to players.
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.
