Microsoft has announced the action brawler game “Full Metal Furies” is finally available on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC after three long years of hard work.
The brand-new action packed brawler game is the follow-up to Rogue Legacy developed by Cellar Door Games. Teddy Lee, Creative Director during a blog post said that game has “a bit of a different and more modern approach to the old-school ways of traditional, button-mashing beat ’em ups”.
Full Metal Furies is a team-based brawler for up to four players where cooperation is the key to victory. The game is aimed at modernising the genre and bringing it to a new generation of gamers.
The game features four unique character classes with their own skills and attacks. Gamers can engage from afar as the Sniper, slam up close as the Fighter, or prep turrets in people’s faces with the Engineer, or a square Sentinel.
Full Metal Furies was designed to support true cooperative gaming players do not just share the same screen, but a special “barrier system” means certain enemies can only be damaged by certain players allowing teammates to communicate and work together.
These barriers do not disappear so players will have to pick their allies if they fall down. The single-player mode features a quick-swap system that allows choosing two classes while going solo.
Full Metal Furies will be available on Xbox Play Anywhere and Cross Play support which means one purchase will allow playing on Xbox One or Windows 10 machine, and both console and PC gamers will have many opportunities to play with their friends and family.
Lee said that it has been quite a winding road to making the brawler, and the genre holds a special place in their heart and they did their very best to breathe new life into it.
“Full Metal Furies is our showpiece for the arcade games of yore, and we hope it makes you rethink what a brawler can be,” he said.
The game will be launched sometime later in 2017.
