Halseo has announced the release date of the PC version of its competitive territorial battle arena game that aims to mix Bomberman and Splatoon together, titled Battery Jam. Set to launch on May 17th after an early access release, Battery Jam promises to host a joyful combination of a top-down battler with territorial warfare.
In Battery Jam, players can either stun shot opposing players directly or punch boomboxes into them in an attempt to destroy them and take over the surrounding tiles. All while the robots dash around the arena avoiding the attacks at a frantic pace. The robots also have the ability to actually modify the battlefield as they fight by either raising or lowering the colored game tiles. In the end, the player with the most tiles under their control when the timer reaches zero claims victory.
There are two game modes to choose from, Classic Jam which is a free-for-all battle or Team Jam which is a battle of orange vs blue. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be a fair fight! You can 1v3 your noob friends in this game mode too. Both game modes are said to be intense and fast, which allow players to challenge their friends to battle again and again.
Last but not least, the game will support local co-op on PC or quick online PVE battles.
