Ironcast gets a new trailer

Upcoming steampunk mech combat game from Dreadbit and Ripstone, Ironcast, has a new trailer which you can check out below:

Ironcast is set in an alternative Victorian history; where refined men and women commanded gigantic mechanised war machines, laying waste to enemies of the British Empire. As Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall walking Ironcast. Gamers must face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880’s Victorian England.

Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast’s various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy their opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapon fire is due.

Ironcast is due to hit digital shelves the 4th March on Xbox One.

The Swindle release date announced

rsz_swindletitleSize Five Games’ The Swindle launches this week.

The Swindle is a platforming, action and stealth game set in a Victorian steampunk world. All levels are procedurally generated, and it is the player’s job as a series of master thieves to break into buildings, steal cash, hack systems and get out. Players start small by robbing from the slums, and must upgrade their tools, abilities and skills until they can pull off the ultimate heist in Scotland Yard.

Dan Marshall, Founder of Size Five Games, had the following to say.

 

With The Swindle I wanted to design a completely new spin on the stealth and action experience whilst keeping true to a classic rogue like style experience. That was the kind of game that I always wanted to play but could never find. The reception we have already received has been incredible. I can’t wait to see people’s different heist set ups.

The Swindle is now available worldwide on other platforms, with an Xbox One arrival due this Friday.
