RELIVE THE PAST-EXPERIENCE THE PRESENT-ENSURE THE FUTURE
Wolves is a 3rd person shooter with the primary focus on simple mechanics and map interaction. Stomp, shoot and destroy in a wide variety of mechs from across the Battletech universe. Fight your friends in arena combat or team up to hold out against impossible odds in Grinder.
It has been about three years since the last time we made a post here, time to fix that.
Despite our silence (which may or may not be related to an HPG-related interference) we have still actively been hard at work, with the game having changed significantly since our last post in 2020.
For those of you who are new, or are just now catching up Wolves is a fan-made recreation of the Xbox-Exclusive Battletech series videogame MechAssault. Our mission is to bring MechAssault back into the modern day, with a fancy new coat of paint and explosive action spanning across the entire Inner Sphere.
Wolves is built entirely from the ground up in Unity, with the project dating back to 2017 and featuring entirely custom Game Assets and a Head-Banging, Blood-Pumping soundtrack to boot.
Since 2020 where we last left you off, the team has grown a bit, with new talent filling each department allowing the game to really start to take shape, back in September of 2022 we were invited to be a part of the VKMT showcase which featured Wolves as a guest, allowing us the opportunity to showcase some of our most recent work.
For a while now, content for Wolves has been released in 'Waves' a set of four new mechs of each weight class, along with a new map or quality of life changes. Wave 3 is the current wave in development, focusing on introducing Basic Multiplayer Functionality meaning not all the features we want for it may be included upon its release but will allow players to play with each other in some of MA's classic game modes.
While it has taken a long time out of the development of the game, it has been coming along and internal play-tests have been underway. Revealed alongside Wave 3 have been our Light, Medium, and Heavy mechs for this release, with the newcomer to MechAssault being Puma (also known as the Adder), and two returning icons of the series Uziel and Mad Cat joining it as well.
To cover any other questions, we have also released a Q&A about more info for Wave 3 on our YouTube Channel. (These videos were released some time ago, and some gameplay content no longer represents the current state of the game)
Also in development, are new and updated maps that will be featured in Wolves featuring unique and stunning locales, one of these new maps is Terra, where remnants of the Word of Blake make their last stand against the oncoming Coalition forces. As well as an updated Anointed, a city-sized steel mill under siege for its strategic value.
After Wave 3's release, we will continue to make more improvements to the core of the game and continue to add additional content to multiplayer, and some new single-player content as well, part of it is our new mode Grinder Turbo.
Grinder Turbo is an expansion of the classic Grinder mode where you survive an endless onslaught of enemy BattleMechs until your defeat. Grinder Turbo aims to expand that with the addition of all combined arms facets faced in MechAssault, Tanks, Choppers, poor bloody Infantry, and possibly a few new special combatants.
An older build of the game is currently available for download and can be found on our website at: Wolvesgame.com
Presently, it features content from the older Wave 2 and features three demo maps to fight against enemy AI in Grinder.
We are always open to bringing on new talent to the team in each field, some of the most critically required fields we need to be filled are:
Other fields we will also take those with experience in are:
