The next Blazing Core alpha is set to fire up on April 6, and we have a bunch of Steam alpha keys for Steam up for grabs so snag one while you can!
I realize that it has been awhile since we posted anything, and I apologize for that. Life has been really busy as of late but I think the pressure should start lessening soon and I should be around here more often in the near future. But enough about me. What you really want to know is that the good folks over at OctoBox Interactive are running a new alpha test for Blazing Core on April 6. Better, yet they have asked us to run a Blazing Core alpha key giveaway here on Death by Beta to help get some keys into the hands of testers! Woohoo!
What is Blazing Core, you ask? Good question! Admittedly I wasn’t sure at first myself, so I did some digging to educate myself. From what I have read, Blazing Core is a multiplayer (massively multiplayer even) team-based shooter involving mechs. There seems to be a context about chivalry and medieval knight mentality, but at the end of the day it looks to be all about players donning a number of large metal suits and beating the snot out of each other. What’s not to love? Here is a blurb from the official email we received from Octobox:
“Our game balances technologies of the future and chivalry aesthetics of the past. When you are fighting in the arena, your life depends on how well you can use your mech’s abilities and how good you are at adapting. Well coordinated tactics, right combinations of mechs, and teamwork become the key to success in Blazing Core. The players can customize and upgrade their mechs, unlock new weapons, and tweak their hero according to their individual playstyle.
- The fusion of chivalry and giant robots.
- Your skills at combining the character’s abilities effectively are more important than your reflexes
- Choosing your mech-hero doesn’t limit your actions on the battlefield. You, and only you, decide what to do, based on your team’s tactics or heat of the moment.
- You can customize and upgrade your mech-hero. Unlocking new weapons lets you fine tune your mech according to your play style and adds gameplay variety .
- Mindless rushes are crushed by teamwork and tactics, while smart mech-hero synergy gives you a real edge in combat.”
It sounds like the Blazing Core beta is imminent but OctoBox wanted to run another alpha test ahead of that. Hence, the big whack of Steam alpha keys that they sent to us to give to you. So, if you would like to jump into a mech and try the game out on April 6 then all you need to do is enter you info into the Blazing Core alpha key giveaway widget below. Enjoy!
