About the Metal Max Series

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Metal Max is a role-playing game series featuring a high degree of freedom in which the player rides a “tank,” a relic of civilization, to hunt down WANTED (bounty) monsters in various locations, and uses the prize money to modify his own tank.

This roguelike action game is a sequel to the latest console title, Metal Max Xeno: Reborn, and follows the story of Pochi, a battle dog who was part of the battle.
