Metal Fatigue Description:
is a real-time strategy game that follows the story of three brothers caught up on opposite sides of a war over the riches of long-dead alien civilization. During the 23rd century, man has discovered faster-than-light travel and finally reached the stars. Galactic exploration has confirmed manís two worst fears. First, an alien warlike race with vastly superior technology does exist. On planet after planet, an exploration fleet of ships discover the ruins of sentient cultures which all appear to have been annihilated eons ago.
Analysis of these worlds and the vast remains of decaying war machines suggested that a single race, dubbed "Hedoth", had systematically swept through the galaxy and pulverized every sentient civilization. When scout ships report finding the Hedoth home worlds vacant, a frenzied "gold rush" among the three CorpoNations is set off to claim the scattered installations and miscellaneous war machines that were left behind. Being the first to plunder pristine and operational Hedoth technology meant more than currency, it meant power.
Set in a fully 3D world with multiple camera angles, Metal Fatigue stands apart from the genre with its numerous innovations: giant, re-configurable Combots; three atmospheric levels of play, and a pre-build phase that gives you enough time to establish your base before being attacked.
Standing over four stories high, and configured with a deadly arsenal of advanced weaponry, the Combot is your ultimate weapon of war. Each Combot has five parts: two legs, two arms, and a torso, which you are able to reconfigure to suit the impending battle scenario. For instance, a heavy attack Combot might consist of a rotary blade arm, plasma cannon arm, a missile-launching torso, and armored legs. Once a body part is manufactured, it can be exchanged with other Combots or replaced with newly manufactured body parts. In addition, you will even be able to amputate the limbs of your enemy Combots and re-use their parts against them.
You will manage your units and resources across three levels of play simultaneously. In addition to the planet surface, action takes place in underground catacombs and caves, and on orbiting asteroids. A unique map feature allows you to see all three levels at once.
