“As fans of classic turn-based strategy titles, we wanted to celebrate what we love about the genre while at the same time giving it something new,” said Anatoly Ropotov, CEO of Game Insight. “By adding clans, PVP battles, and more, we truly believe X-Mercs combines the best of what the genre has to offer with the multiplayer components that gamers crave today.”
Set on a future Earth afflicted by a spaceborne material, players control their own team of mercenaries that have been hired to dispatch the world’s many mutants created in the wake of a space-born substance that arrived alongside the comet Advin.
As with all of Game Insight’s releases, additional content has been planned for both the single player and multiplayer elements of X-Mercs for years to come. This includes the introduction of a genre-first: X-Mercs will be receiving co-operative play in a future update. “We truly believe in making a long-term commitment to our players,” said Ropotov. “Players of X-Mercs will never have a shortage of things to play, with new content and excellent support planned for the foreseeable future.”
X-Mercs is available now on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, and can be downloaded for free. Will you be picking up X-Mercs? Let us know in the comments below!
