Neowiz announced that the JellySnow-developed 2D action-adventure Metal Unit will launch on Steam Early Access on February 4.
The developer will use the time in Early Access to address feedback from players globally and create a better product. They are planning to be in the program for six months until an official launch.
The game has been in a Beta Test for a few weeks now, which has been helpful, but the team wants to include more people. During the Early Access, players will be able to take on missions, explore some of the story and characters, and test out the game’s battle system.
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.
