Mega mech battling returns in Override 2: Super Mech League

One of last year’s most pleasant surprises was the mech battling action of Override: Mech City Brawl. Taking a batch of well-designed giant robots into combat against each other and a bunch of ugly alien creatures was plenty of fun, so it’s great to see a new entry announced in the shape of Override 2: Super Mech League.


Coming somewhat sooner than you might expect, Override 2: Super Mech League is due to release in December 2020, and it’s coming to everything under the sun, including both the next gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X. No one’s left out in the cold though, with PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC all along for the ride too.

Publisher Modus Games announced the competitive arena brawler as part of Gamescom 2020’s opening day, and the new game is set to feature an all-new Career Mode where you can build a rep for your Club as you try to climb the ranks in the brutal Mech League.

There’s going to be a formidable roster of twenty bots to choose from, a welcome jump from the first game, and the arenas are set to bring you some pain as well this time round with new hazards including pools of lava and geysers to give you something else to worry about beyond the metallic warrior attempting to take you apart.

Of course, multiplayer will remain a key component of Override 2: Super Mech League, and there’ll be a wealth of game modes to sink into including ranked matches, Xenoswarm, King of the Hill and more, with a bevy of cosmetics and unlockables to personalise your mech with and to keep you coming back for more.

We’ve also had word of an exciting IP crossover announcement that’s coming next month, so you can begin trying to imagine what or who would fit into Override’s world from about now. Stay tuned to the official website for more!
