WTF is coming to Steam Early Access

War Tech Fighters

Space action game War Tech Fighters is releasing on Steam Early Access on August 16, 2017.

Described by developers Drakkar Dev as a “love letter to Japanese anime and blockbuster action,” WTF (an acronym that the devs really, really love, incidentally) and its “top action” is supposed to resemble the love child of Michael Bay and Evangelion. 

Check out our list of the best upcoming PC games.

You can fully customise the loadout and appearance of your giant mecha, called War Techs, as you lead the assault on Zatros “with fists of iron and lazer sword in hand, as you pilot your fully equipped, spaceship shredding War Tech, built to fight for the rebel colonies of Hebos and Ares and reclaim your homeland.”

Beyond the action, though, there are survival arenas, plus stealth and puzzle sections, too.

Here’s what’s coming in the Early Access release:

  • Control A Fully Equipped War Tech – Destroy your enemies in long-range combat with guns and missiles, or get up close and personal with swords and shields.

  • Customisation – Hundreds and thousands of combinations of mecha parts, weapons and colours to truly stand out on the battlefield.

  • Upgrades – Three base robot sets, each with specific bonuses, and over 150 upgradeable robot parts.

  • Research & Development – Research new upgrade projects to enhance your War Tech, and develop weapons ranging from missile launchers to anti-matter cannons.

  • Level Up – Gain experience through combat to level up your War Tech pilot to gain improved attack/defence bonuses.

  • Intense Single-Player Missions – Experience the first 12 missions of Captain Nathan Romanis’ battle across the galaxy.

  • Simulator Bridge – Train your War Tech by replaying missions, or take on special Challenges to gain experience and add-ons to improve your machine.

  • Survival Mode – Test yourself to the limit in an infinite survival mode arena, and walk away with special rewards.

WTF isn’t the only space shooter coming our way soon, though. Here’s our thoughts on Destiny 2 andBungie’s latest tweaks to PvP.
