Developer: From Software
Genre: War Game
Release Date: 21 June 2012
Set in 2082, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor depicts a world devoid of computers, where war is waged with rudimentary weapons as new superpowers struggle for dominance. In a twist of fate, the US army has been forced to begin major landing operations on what was once its own soil. In this low-tech era there is one weapon class that will determine the course of the war - the Vertical Tank. VTs are guaranteed to instill fear in enemy forces when they burst onto the battlefield; but they are nothing without the crews who man them. Lacking computer aided weapon and piloting systems; these brave men and women must now rely on skill, intuition and each other to ensure victory.
Though their designs are unique to each nation, all Vertical Tanks have massive legs and bipedal locomotion. You take on the role of VT pilot Sgt. Powers in a series of key battlefield missions.
Use simple hand gestures to take control of your Vertical Tank via Kinect, as if you were in the real battle fields.
...and that’s just for starters. Learn More
