Electroplate Armor Plating – Sneaky Peak

Electroplate Armor Plating – Sneaky Peak

“Fortitude is the marshal of thought, the armor of the will, and the fort of reason” – and Electroplate Armor is the marshall of all gunbed SMG’s 🙂

Here’s a sneaky peak image of Ric (@FatDigester) working on the Electroplate Armor

Here’s the low down:

  • 10 x levels of Electroplate armor
  • All armor plates come in separate left and right hand versions
  • High levels are larger in size and tougher
  • Electroplate has been designed to have interesting shapes and forms that can compliment the style of Robots in game at present
  • The shapes vary a lot as you progress from L1 to L10
  • Electroplate sits in the ‘Hardware’ category
  • It has high CPU, and high Robot Ranking so adding it will push you up Tier, just like adding Weapons
  • Electroplate will be coated in a electromagnetic force-field which will be glowing and visible to your enemies
  • The force field will absorb high amounts of damage
  • Taking sustained hits on the force field will take it down
  • With the force field down the plating can be shot, it will fragment and pieces will fall off
  • If you can avoid shots for a period of time, the force-field will regenerate
  • Since the CPU will be high, users will need to make a choice between 1 x more weapon, or 1 x more electroplate
  • All Robot styles will be able to make use of the Electroplate, but we see Plasma and Rail Robots being able to benefit the most since they will be able to take a few hits, shoot, then retreat to cover to recharge
  • Release date is two weeks away

Things coming next week:

  • Hex Tree – new hexagon tessellated Tech Tree layout
  • Robot CPU damage indicator (i.e. health bar) in your HUD
  • Robot CPU damage indicators on your enemies, so you can see how much damage you are doing as you hit them
  • Screen effects when you take damage
  • Improved audio so you can hear when you hit or miss enemies, and when you get hit more clearly
  • Fog and view distance fixes, so fliers can see who is shooting at them and shoot back

PS: What’s that in your ear Ric?
