Marvelous Europe announced that Assault Gunners HD Edition will release worldwide on the 20th of March for PS4 and PC. The game will be available in two forms: A Standard Edition and a 'Complete Set' containing all DLC bundled with the base game.
In Assault Gunners HD Edition, it’s the year 208X and Mars is in the process of terraformation with an expected timeline of 300 years till completion. Back on Earth, a great war erupts and millions of migrants flee to Mars through the Planet Remodelling Project, which is accelerated with the aid of ANTS, a completely robotic automated system. The migrants build large dome-shaped colonies with now stable climates and rush to construct cities within them to sustain the flow of refugees. Time passes and the World Federation has set up military colonies on Deimos and Phobos, and the dwarf-planet Ceres is moved to Mars’ orbit to help create an ocean for the planet. One day, communication is suddenly lost with the surface of Mars and a Peace Keeping Force called DAT whom are currently training on Deimos are sent to investigate.
Originally released exclusively in Japan for the PS Vita in 2012, the game puts you in control of the Peace Keeping Force known as DAT and along with your three allied Battle Mechs, you must attempt to save Earth’s migrants and the Mars colonies from the threat of the ANTS uprising. With 35 full-length battle-heavy missions, a horde gameplay mode known as “Inferno Mode” covering 5 varied maps and over 100 mech-customisation possibilities for yourself and your allies, there’s plenty of replayability and content present in the standard edition of the game. The Assault Gunners HD Edition Extra Pack, which includes all the game's DLC, will allow players to take their experience even further with: 15 campaign missions set after the initial campaign, 3 additional Inferno Mode maps bringing the total to 8, 15 extra weapons, and over 30 additional mech-parts.
The Assault Gunners HD Edition Standard Edition will be available for $9.99, while the Complete Edition with all the game's DLC will be available for $11.99. All DLC will also be available separately for purchase via the Extra Pack for $4.99.
