Hunter Life

After arriving at Iron Base, Thalys is introduced to Po-, and the other members living within, then soon gets sent to scout the surrounding areas. This is the beginning of his journey for revenge. The field is full of treasure scattered around, waiting to be discovered. With the obtained equipment, you are able to customize the tank to have different specs.

Within the field are also various ‘Vester Ports’, warp points that can be used to quick travel. Thalys and his allies will need to explore Remains, which are too small for tanks to enter. As this means they will be fighting in person, players should make sure they are properly equipped for the challenge. If Thalys and the party falls in battle, they will be warped back to Iron Base with Po-M’s help.

In the Remains are important scientific information which will raise Iron Base’s Technology Score. As Tech Score is raised, so does Tech Level, which increases customization options and list of producible weapons.

Trailer

Yes, another trailer! This second trailer shows us the gameplay, main cast, and the newly introduced characters, Maria and Dylan.

Metal Max Xeno will launch for PS4 and PS Vita on April 19th 2018 in Japan.
