Metal Max Xeno Details Tank Customisation

Alex FullerAlex Fuller Managing EditorRPGamer Staff
Now this latest batch of screenshots for Xeno has what I've been taught to expect from the Metal Max series. Namely, a massive dinosaur fused with a battleship.

    And I've played every game in the series, barring one remake and one of two iOS games, at least once but often twice. What's your point? Fun is fun. :)

    Nothing like ridiculous creatures combined with military hardware to make ones day

    I've never played any of the Metal games, but you had me at Mothership Saurus. We need more games with dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are awesome. Good to hear they're planning a western loc. If they are able to push it to the Switch (digital-only even) then I'd be very happy.
    Fufufufufu,

    The game does look fun from what I've seen here. I do have concerns about critical reception of previous entries though.

    Well, it does look like it's been on an upward trend.

    That it has.

    Talking about the actual meat of the article here, it looks like Xeno's expanding on something from the DS games. In every game of the series, each tank needs a CPU to help control its systems, but from Metal Max 3 onward these CPUs often came with special programs embedded that provided either passive benefits or allowed the vehicle's driver to perform driving-related feats that they otherwise wouldn't know how to do. Some of these mimicked the Hunter's vehicular skills, while others were completely original.

    From the way it sounds, in Xeno this has morphed into the CPU having space for add-on chips with these sorts of programs, so the player can mix and match to a greater extent.
