Belgian games publisher Cronos Interactive and developer Not A Company have released an update for Hoverloop on Steam’s Early Access today. The split screen multiplayer drone combat game is now loaded with tons of additional features! This milestone is a major step toward the full version’s release later this year, which will boast a brand new online multiplayer mode when it launches in the fall. Created using the Unreal Engine, Hoverloop offers a peek into a future where all of the world’s sports have been overtaken by drone competitions.
Today’s new update for Hoverloop offers a slew of enhancements and new content including a brand-new combat arena set inside a mine and a new Team Deathmatch mode. The fresh tutorial will help players learn the ropes in their high-speed hover drones while an AI upgrade for computer-controlled opponents will push players to their limits. A bundle of new drone chassis and customization options round out the list of improvements as well as a slew of UI and feedback refinements that will help players stay in control of the remote-controlled chaos.
Hoverloop is a multiplayer arena shooter that features customizable hover drones in high-speed combat. Players take their mechanized combatants into battle for glory across a multitude of maps and gametypes including modes like Deathmatch and wave-based PvE matches. Both the drones’ abilities and appearance can be personalized to their owner’s preferences. Powerful abilities like death rays, invulnerable shields and teleportation let you pick your play style.
“Our main goal is to give players a strong first impression of the game as they play in Early Access. The team is eager to receive players’ feedback in order to continue to develop the game. We are aiming for a final version that takes full consideration of what the community has to say”, says Philippe Mesotten, Not A Company founder.
