Modus Games has announced the official release date for its upcoming giant robot brawler Override 2: Super Mech League. The game will launch on PC and consoles at the end of the year. A new 15-minute gameplay video followed the announcement.
Override 2: Super Mech League takes place seven years after the eradication of the Xenotypes that threatened Earth. The mechs that once acted as the planet’s defenders are now a source of entertainment.
Players take on the role of a new pilot of a repurposed super mech who must climb the ranks and represent their Club. The game offers a roster filled with around 20 playable old and new mechs, which each have a unique set of skills, abilities, and super-charged attacks.
The game is available in single-player and multiplayer campaign modes. Up to four players can play locally or online across the globe.
The brawl continues December 22 when Override 2: Super Mech League launches on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
