Description

As the game begins, you are a proud new tank pilot for the Nataka Corporation's Imperial Armored Cavalry. A Nataka installation is suddenly attacked by forces from Network 53, a branch of the Argus Industrial Corporation and a long-standing ally. No explanation is given and a full-scale war erupts. All lines of communication are severed and the highest management of the Argus Industrial companies disappear. Negotiation is impossible.

A fast, fluid first-person shooter with MechWarrior-style ability to equip your RPV to suit different missions instead of relying on weapons found on your path.

Trivia

Mini game

Gunmetal features a mini game called Gandhi Kong. The actual console is on the Railgun Asteroid level, in the staff lounge, and can be played (but watch your back; enemies can still shoot at you!) You play Gandhi, using the principles of passive resistance to save your village from a marauding ape.
