Montreal, Canada. March 4, 2005. Publisher Strategy First and ZOO Digital are happy to announce the signing of Gun Metal. This action-packed title, previously available solely on console, is now coming to PC gamers in North America.
“We are very excited about working with Strategy First to release this title to the PC market. We feel Strategy First is perfect to help reach the PC gamers who are looking for some exhilarating action,” says Barry Hatch, Sales Director at ZOO Digital.
“Action fans won’t want to miss Gun Metal. It has fast and intense gameplay, tons of upgradeable weapons, a captivating storyline, and a challenging AI,” says Pro Sotos, Business Development Manager at Strategy First. “All these features, plus the ability to transform on the fly between a mech and an airplane, makes Gun Metal a really cool game,” continues Sotos.
Spurred on by countless conquests, the enemy moves ever onward, destroying all that lies in its path, and threatening the very heart of your civilization. One single hope remains—a prototype combat vehicle known as The Havoc Suit. Standing 10 meters tall, equipped with an arsenal of devastating weaponry, and capable of transforming into a highly maneuverable jet fighter, only this formidable battle machine has the potential to halt the invading foe.
Gun Metal is a futuristic action-packed experience where you take control of the fully transformable prototype combat vehicle known as the Havoc Suit. Use the Havoc Suit to battle-ground-based enemies, or transform in the blink of an eye into an agile jet and take on aircraft in high-speed dogfights. Either way, get ready for mind-blowing action and out-of-this world graphics. Fight hordes of enemies through 14 different missions, scorch the earth, crush rocks under foot, fell trees, tear chunks out of towering buildings, and raze entire settlements to the ground. You can also tool up with an extensive armory of devastating weaponry. Gun Metal provides the gamer with an unparalleled level of destruction.
