AirMech: Command is a unique experience that is a showcase for how VR expands gaming by allowing players to command a mighty army from above with the ultimate war machine: the AirMech. They can watch the battle unfold on the table in their personal war room, or dive into the action in the single-player mode or with friends.[1]


Features

AirMech:Command, a free-to-play futuristic multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Carbon Games for Microsoft Windows, launched on March 28th alongside the Oculus Rift. Carbon Games have been workign on the VR version for quite some time, wanting to offer players a brand new way how they can enjoy this game.[2]

The game is set in the future, following the last survivors of the Great War, who continue their fight with the ultimate war machine: the AirMech. Created using lost technology, Pilots have found, salvaged, or stolen AirMechs that they use to protect the weak, or to pillage.

AirMech can be played online competitively or cooperatively. Players earn Kudos and Experience in battle and unlock a wide collection of AirMechs, Pilots, Units and Items to customize thier army. There are 9 AirMechs to unlock, each with unique special abilities; 60 skins and 60+ cosemtic enhancements; 60 Units to build and command; 13 maps for playing solo or with friends in a variety of modes; and the option to watch other people play games with Spectate mode.

The game features several different gameplay modes, including 1v1 to 3v3 PvP, Coop vs AI, or Survival mode, which puts up to 4 players working together to fight off incoming hordes of enemies. Furthermore, Challenge modes let seasoned players test their skills in time trials.[3]

The customizable controls support but mouse with keyboard and Xbox 360 gamepad. Each player can change them to suit his or her personal taste and preferences, in order to more easily dominate the battlefield.

Carbon Games director, James Green, is very skeptical of the potential for free-to-play games. For the Rift launch, Carbon reworked the originaly free-to-play game into the $40 AirMech: Command premium experience with no in-app purchases or ads. Green said Carbon will “never” shut down the free-to-play version of Airmech for PC and other platforms, but they are also shifting their focus to the VR version and other premium-priced versions.[4]
