Spark Plug Games today announced some small updates to their upcoming game, Mechrunner for PS4, PS Vita, and PC. First, the game is still scheduled for release this year, but later in 2014. Second, the gameplay has been tweaked a bit due to user feedback. They have removed the “on rails” movement, and are now letting players more directly control the XP41 vehicle and ‘mecha in the game. They are also adding additional content to build the immersion around combat sections and the arcade-action feel of the game.
This should alleviate some worries that skeptics had that this game would just be a typical endless runner style game. Hopefully this makes for a much more fun and arcade like experience.
