You may have heard about TechWars: Global Conflict from the time it has already spent on the PC, but now it’s making its mark on the Xbox One. Are you prepared for some free-to-play mech on mech action in a way that you’ve likely never seen before?
TechWars: Global Conflict is apparently the world’s first isometric PVP action game involving the direct control of mechs. To succeed in battles, you won’t merely need good reactions, but also an impeccable tactical awareness as well as the ability to use weapons skillfully, master the robots, and take into account the peculiarities of the landscape within each area. Once you’ve got to grips with it all, you’ll be well-equipped to destroy dozens and dozens of enemies.
The premise, based on a world that’s slipped into disarray and a law system ruled by force, you’ll become a pilot of one of two factions – the Russian ‘Dominion’ and the American ‘KATO’. This leads you to part in the battle for control over a number of locations and, depending on which faction you belong to, you’ll either be able to trigger devastating air strikes or protect yourself from danger for a limited time. There are also different classes available, including the nimble but vulnerable Scout; the mighty Stormtroopers that strike hard; the Destroyers, who are slow yet deliver heavy damage from range; and the indispensable Support class, possessing the ability to restore armour and supplies.
Key features of TechWars: Global Conflict:
- Detailed and complex destructibility of mechs
- Destructibility of all objects consisting of a material that can be destroyed (for example: concrete, brick, blocks of other building material)
- Over 14 advanced mechs with unique characteristics. Each mech uses a unique technological skill
- Over 100 upgradable weapons and items
- Any combat unit can be improved in several ways to gain fantastic superiority. There is a separate modification system for all kinds of weapons. However, significantly improving some characteristics will cost you a weakening of others.
- Up to 20 mechs can participate in a single battle at the same time
- Shelters and terrain to gain advantage
- Mechs behave realistically. For example, injury to the right hand makes it impossible for the robot to use a gun attached to it; if the left hand is injured, the robot will not be able to use short-range weapons on it.
- Players can also interact with each other outside the battlefield – they can make friends, unite in clans or find deadly enemies.
Given that TechWars: Global Conflict is free-to-play, you’ve got nothing to lose by downloading it from the Xbox Store. Should you wish to spend money, there are a few optional extras including in-game currency, with 10,000 Platinum costing £24.99, and a 30-day Premium membership which is priced at £9.99.

Each faction has its global technologies. The Dominion robots can cause devastating air strikes, while KATO mechanoids can protect themselves from damage for a few seconds. The advanced class system stimulates сlose cooperation between players. This system features the following: Scouts: they are vulnerable but very fast; they can quickly find weak spots in enemy defenses and report such to the allies. Stormtroopers: the main striking force on the battlefield; they are powerful and tough. Destroyers: slow but extremely dangerous at long-range combat. Support class: weak individually, but indispensable for a group due to the ability to restore armor and supplies. Each player can own several robots at once and use them depending on the game situation. The destruction physics of TechWars: Global Conflict was a special focus of developers. Almost all the objects on the map can be destroyed. Partial destruction of objects can be used tactically to create temporary shelters and enemy safe shooting zones. All this will be a pleasant addition to the main thing – destroy all enemies in sight. And by the way, as you’re there thinking, others are already catching fun!
