The “RPG-laden action brawler” supports up to four players and aims to modernize the genre, “from missing attacks to obscure depth perception,” RPG skill trees, collectible equipment, secret-world meta puzzles, and more.
Here’s the full overview, via Cellar Door:
Full Metal Furies is an RPG-laden action brawler for up to four players. But the brawler formula is a little outdated, made for a time when arcade machines guzzled quarters. So this isn’t just another old-school beat-em-up. Full Metal Furies is our take at modernizing the genre, and bringing it to a new generation of gamers. Nothing is sacred in Full Metal Furies as we scrutinized every issue we had with the brawler, from missing attacks due to obscure depth perception, to constantly fighting off-screen enemies. On top of that, we brought in a slew of more contemporary features, like RPG skill trees, collectible equipment, and secret world meta-puzzles. And this isn’t even talking about the co-op yet!
Full Metal Furies was designed to support true cooperative gaming so it’s not just players sharing the same screen. A special “barrier system” means certain enemies can only be damaged by certain players, forcing teammates to communicate and work together. If an ally falls you better pick them up, because those barriers don’t go away. And this isn’t just for people playing with friends. Single player mode features a quick-swap system that allows you to choose two classes while going solo. Everything you do with your friends you can do alone, like stringing elaborate team combos.
Best of all, we wanted to give gamers many opportunities to play with their friends and family, which is why Full Metal Furies is not only supporting online co-op play, but full Xbox Play Anywhere and Cross Play support. That means one purchase will allow you to play on your Xbox One or Windows 10 machine, and both console and PC gamers can unite with the Furies to take down the Titans!
