Hoplon has announced today that Heavy Metal Machines open beta is now live, granting players who want to join in on some 4v4 vehicular mayhem their invitation. The announcement details a game that “encourages players to engage in creating carnage on an epic scale”.
In Heavy Metal Machines, players take part in a race to deliver a bomb to an enemy base while fending off attacks from an opposing team. Cars come in three different roles: Transporters, which carry the bomb; Interceptors, which are responsible for stopping opponents from taking the bomb; and Support, who disrupt opponents or protect the Transporter.
With the launch of open beta, Heavy Metal Machines has also updated with new in-game voice chat options, a more visible life bar, localization for Russia, and a help guide for new players. The update also adds a new Support driver, Iris, who has a passive ability to heal nearby drivers.
Heavy Metal Machines looks a lot like the old SNES game Rock N’ Roll Racing with online play and an awesome soundtrack. We can definitely dig the style of the game and its overall delight of loud mayhem, so we’re most certainly curious to find out more!
