ExoMecha is set in OMECHA, an explored and exotic world. The gameplay trailer showcases the environment vividly. We believe some landscapes shown in the trailer will eventually become the first maps in the game. There were also instances of water based regions, and one map has lava flowing on the ground. Mechs and other alien technology adorn the lands. We even see boss battles, which look very similar to Autobots from the popular franchise, Transformers.

When is the game coming to Xbox?

The trailer does not provide much context to whatever is playing in it, therefore a lot of it right now is mere speculations. We expect the devs at TwistedRed will soon reveal more details about their upcoming FPS title. The only thing we can all agree on right now, after watching the trailer, is that the game looks promising. We can’t wait for the beta to launch soon.

ExoMecha is launching in August this year. It will first release on Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One and PC.
