Tough men, steel and hot chicks! Steel Legions is a new 3D browser game from Splitscreen Studios in Hamburg, Germany. The new project is planned to be launched for the second quarter of 2011. In an alternate past, steel, steam, and oil have become essential resources for the military forces of the age: gigantic steel colossi weighing several tons, steered by half a dozen men and women. These machines maintain the balance of power between the four largest empires. But machines require fuel – which is a scarce commodity.

In tactical battles against rival teams, players get to showcase their strategic skills. The game environment can be cleverly used to benefit the player. A vehicle on high ground, for instance, will have increased firing power and range. On the other hand, craters and canyons offer better protection against attacking enemies. Other elements that provide players with tactical options during missions include bridges, barriers, turrets, and various buildings.

Of course, along with fast and dynamic PvP missions, long-term construction and upgrades to your own troops’ equipment must be taken into account as well. By replacing individual components of Steel Legions combat vehicles, such as chassis, drive mechanism, and armour, as well as primary and secondary weapons, players get to customise their vehicles and influence their combat attributes.

The game concept focuses especially on beginner-friendliness, simple controls, and a high degree of freedom during the course of the game. Steel Legions will initially be available in English. Localisation into German, French, Spanish, and Italian is underway.
