There are many abilities to choose from when decide how to outfit your mech. These abilities are called licenses. Basically you get a license to use a company’s Mech blueprint. As you increase your licensed level with that particular mech you get more things that that license has to offer. Each license has items that follow a concept. This includes a specific frame designed around that concept. All frames have a system that’s unique only to them. Even though each license has a concept you can mix and match abilities to your hearts content. For example the Hydra is a mech that is based around drones. While there are other licenses that give you drones the Hydra frame gives you four unique drones only this license can use. You also gain a bonus to all other drones you have regardless of what license they come from.
The one thing I like about this game more than anything else is that if you take it licenses from many different companies to the point where you can’t get a signature framework they got you covered. The GMS is a framework everyone has access to and while other RPG’s I’ve seen don’t give generic unlocks power this frame can stand toe to toe with any other.
The Mechs From My Childhood Come To Life
I really like how a lot of inspiration came from mechs I’ve grown up with in my life. For example there are definitely some Gundam influences in this game and is very easy for you to make one. There are some hints of Tau influence . I could be wrong but I definitely get a Mech Warrior vibe from some of them. I really like this if you want to play a mechs of your own creation you could import your favorite from your fantasy setting of your choice.
Because of all the inspiration they used to make this game there is a Mech for everyone. Besides the support, control, damage of regular RPG’s you can hybridize yourself into ever you feel like. My first play through I played a Hydra who focused on support drones and weapons that could target my allies positively in my enemies negatively essentially making me support damage. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are multitudes of melee weapons, ranged weapons, drones, armor abilities; you want something chances are you can have it.
