All About Robots
If you aren’t quite sure what Volta-X is, then you can check out the announcement trailer on our earlier articles, here, or just jump in and bash some robots with us here. Volta-X is a brand new robot arena battler that sidesteps the massive footsteps of games like Mech City Brawl or the action combat Transformer’s Devastation, instead taking a more strategic approach to giant mechanised warfare. Players will be able to take on opponents in a crossplay enabled competition, on PC and Nintendo Switch, as they customize and configure their very own battle bot for the ring. Where this takes an unusual twist is the FTL style ship management. You’ll need to manage and direct your crew to put out fires, fix damage, and generally keep each robot in running order while chaos erupts.
In order to get fans in the mood, Gung-Ho is also releasing a new webcomic available now, free on Webtoon for those who would like a taste of what is to come with the story of Volta-X. The comic showcases the unique art style of Volta-X and dives into the backstories of two of the game’s main protagonists, Ian and Sheldon. Both are on the verge of graduating from the Volta academy but need to pull off a heist to ‘borrow’ their own giant Volta robot for an upcoming tournament.
