Snail Games has published a new article on the Black Gold site to discuss in greater detail the action-combat system the steampunk title will utilize. The team indicates that players will be forced out of the traditional "stand and hit/cast" battle system and have to literally think on their feet in order to survive. And then, of course, there is vehicular combat!
The combat is made all the richer with the implementation of battle vehicles. As soon as a player enters his own customized vehicle, the view switches to FPS\TPS mode. You’ll be in direct control of your hulking mech or stampeding war-beast.
Blast your enemies with incendiary rounds or penetrate them with acidic war-axes. All missile projectiles will be aim-based like traditional FPS. Herald the rise of multi-dimensional combat: steel versus sorcery, intense vehicle showdowns and aerial dog fights!
