Ultimechs has been announced by Resolution Games for major VR platforms, and it is set to release in 2022. There is not much detail outside of the fact that Ultimechs is a VR game, players will pilot mechs, and it will be set in a sports arena where crowds will cheer the action on. Some of you may be reminded of the PSVR exclusive Rigs: Mechanized Combat League which feature mechs battling it out in arenas, though that game never hit its full stride due to Sony shutting down the development studio soon after release.
The description for Ultimechs reads: “As the thrill of professional athletics meets the precision of purpose-built machines, Ultimechs welcomes players into the sport of the future to compete for victory. If you don’t have the speed, precision and rocketry that it takes to defeat your opponents, you’re done for.”
“With Ultimechs we have created an entirely new gameplay mechanic that could only exist in the immersive world of VR,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “Sure anyone can kick a ball into a net, but only in the world of Ultimechs can you and your mech punch it in by firing a rocket fist and controlling the trajectory as you follow along its path. And that just scratches the surface of Ultimechs. We’ve really stretched the boundaries of what can be done in VR in this game, and we can’t wait to share more details.”
Resolution Games has stated that more details for Ultimechs will be released in the coming months, no doubt reveals of the different mech types and gameplay modes that players will be compete in when entering the arena.
