A year ago, we informed you about Stompy Bot Productions’ plans for creating a new Heavy Gear title. Well, the time has come for that company to finally unveil what it’s been up to this whole year. The next installment in the Heavy Gear series will be called Heavy Gear Assault and according to its description, it will be a F2P title.
As the game’s description reads:
“Heavy Gear Assault can be fully enjoyed without ever needing to purchase anything. What we are offering is a new way of doing business. The best part is that our players are in the driver seat and can freely choose to pay or not with no consequences to their enjoyment of Heavy Gear Assault. Of course, there will be upgrades and items that can be purchased, but nothing will be available that will break the balance of the game.”
Naturally, Heavy Gear Assault will support premium accounts with which players can get discounts on premium items and regular items purchasable through real or in-game currency, exclusive game content, special promotions, invitations to certain prestigious tournaments and game events., earn Experience and in-game currency at a faster rate and occasional Free rewards.
MekTek Studios, Stompy Bot Productions and Dream Pod 9 are aiming to bring together a revolutionary AAA mecha genre title with an amazing in-game experience. These studios that will be behind Heavy Gear Assault want to push the envelope of what is possible and produce a creatively pure game for gamers.
We should also note that this is a crowdfunding project, meaning that those interested can pledge and back Heavy Gear Assault up. And as you’d expect, there are some rewards for those who are willing to pledge some money on it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
