Not content with simply making incredible fighting games, a new Mecha Combat RPG hits PS4/Vita/PC via Steam today: Damascus Gear: Operation Osaka! The Playstation 4 and Steam versions both boast crisp HD visuals, and all versions have the Arena Mode (battle against other mechs for money and Arena Points) and Mission Mode (explore the Cosmopolis dungeon that changes every time you enter for parts and other items. Arena ranks add more difficult dungeons). A first in the series, Pilots can be upgraded and leveled up, and there are over 40 unique characters to interact with.
“The GEAR System was revealed by the Atsuga Corporation, allowing for the perfection of piloted humanoid robots called GEARs. With the outbreak of World War Four in 2050 and the loss of control of the GEAR System that followed, the world changed completely. Berserk GEARs became known as RAGE, and combat GEARs around the world began a total massacre of humanity. The war between humans and RAGE was exceedingly fierce, but over 50 years after the war began, humanity reclaimed Japan from the RAGE.”
30 years have passed, and a beacon of light and hope, Cosmopolis was built upon Osaka. A pilot has inherited his GEAR alongside crippling debt. Between them and their Operator, they enter the Arena. This is not a tale for the history books to be told time immemorial, but a battle for freedom and survival.
