Xbox 360-Kinect users rejoice! The new Steel Battalion: Heavy Armour is going to be released soon. The game is currently under development and will be published by CAPCOM. You can expect it in stores in the US on June 19th and on 22nd in Europe. Heavy Armour is the sequel to Steel Battalion: Line of Contact.
The game takes place in the year 2082. The world then is one without computers, due to microbe outbreak which destroys any kind of microprocessor. The microbe feasts on silicon. So the United States Military now is reduced to using “Vertical Tanks”. These are basically tanks which move using two mechanical limbs. These are the brunt of their armed forces.
David Hinkle from Joystiq games, has said that the experience of Steek Battalion: Heavy Armour in the Xbox 360 is very engaging, especially with the Kinect motion control. Check out the trailer given below and decide for yourself!
