Heavy Gear Assault Comes to Kickstarter


Not enough free-to-play mech games for you? Well now there's another one to look forward to. Stompy Bot Productions has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Unreal Engine 4-powered Heavy Gear Assault, with a goal of $800,000.

I loved the earlier Heavy Gear games, they were a nice different slice of mech than Mechwarrior, lots of jumping and fast movement, plus the zero-G sections were cool.

Weird, I was trying to remember the other day what license it was that Activision pushed after losing Mechwarrior, and here it is.

Shame it's free-to-play arena garbage.

Glorified deathmatch. Come on! Give us missions, single player, some kind of persistent campaign mode, a reason to care beyond Heavy Gear skins. What a waste.

I wanted to love Hawken,and its fine just not that into it. After that I not sure I care for F2P mech games.
Single player and multi would get me to back this,but if its just multi F2P then I can skip it.

I was very excited at first. I used to play Heavy Gear RPG / Tactical back in the day....

and then I saw that the game is just a F2P death match game.


Also- my hair stood up on end because I've been working on a turn based tactical mech game for a little bit now and eventually want to take it to KS. So I'm glad they are not going that route.

Wow the head on that mech (the whole mech to be honest) remind me of the mechs from the Armored Core series.

Arrgh, F2P arena deathmatch?
I'll give them a little money to show support for Heavy Gear but I doubt their kickstarter is going to make it with Hawken and Mechwarrior already on the scene.

Only 41 backers so far, they might as well call it quits right now.

Used to love me some Heavy Gear 2. I wish this was an updated version of that.

Yeah, I'd definitely pay for and "HD" remake of Heavy Gear 2. That game is a pain to get running these days.
