Ripstone Publishing and developer Dreadbit have announced that Ironcast, a Steampunk mech combat game, will launch on PlayStation 4 on March 1, 2016 in the Americas and the following day in Europe. Xbox One owners will see the game on the 4th of March. Ironcast will be available only in digital formats. Ironcast has been available for PC and Mac since March, 2015, and has garnered positive feedback. While Ironcast is the first game developed by Dreadbit, they are led by Daniel Leaver, who was a Senior Designer for Media Molecule and worked on Tearaway and the LittleBig Planet series.

As described in Ripstone’s press release, “Ironcast is set in an alternative Victorian history; where refined men and women commanded gigantic mechanised war machines, laying waste to enemies of the British Empire. As Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall walking Ironcast. Gamers must face off against an invading force of enemy Ironcast in order to defend 1880’s Victorian England. Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast’s various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy their opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapon fire is due.”
