BMWs with Bazookas!
Gamecloud's latest preview gives readers a look inside the Auto Assault beta. So a biomek, a mutant, and a lawyer walk into a bar, and the barkeeper says...
After the tutorial missions are over it was time to actually go into the game with real people online. Currently the beta only allows people to play a few hours a couple of times a week. Your avatar is directed to talk to NPCs who give your character missions to execute. You then move your avatar out of the base and then a loading screen comes up where you see your vehicle. The missions in the first few levels are pretty basic. You have to go and shoot a pre-determined number of specific enemies, whether they are human, mutant creatures or other vehicles. The game's combat is real time but there are some winks to normal MMORPGs combat as the game calculates hits and misses.
Stave your preview hunger (we know you can't get enough of these!) by reading the rest of the Gamecloud Auto Assault beta sneak peek!
