Neowiz and developer JellySnow released the development roadmap for the 2D action-roguelike Metal Unit, available now on Steam Early Access.
The biggest piece of news from this announcement is that the team plans for a full release in December. October’s current updates include Challange Mode, Skin System, Stash Improvement, Crafting Improvements, and Upgrade Rework. November’s patch will include Story revisited, Final Chapter rework, and visual polish.
The team is also looking forward to 2021 with the release of a Switch version and additional content.
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.
