Kasedo Games has announced a new mech-themed real-time strategy title, Mechs & Mercs: Black Talons. As commander of the Black Talons mercenary outfit, players must team up with the defeated Genai forces in order to escape their conquered planet by breaking the blockade set up by the victorious Tzanar Union. The campaign will unfold to include up to five worlds, and progress is determined by how much the player affects a local system’s balance of power and their relations with other factions. Squads will be persistent and customizable, made up of specialized units with their own abilities, skill trees, and unique weapons. The Black Talons’ base will also be customizable with facilities to boost squad skills and numbers as well as bombard enemy units.

The update also features several fixes and tweaks, such as non-artifact items now capable of being unique, poison from poison daggers now ignoring etherealness, and a new population cap of 300,000. The full changelog can be found here.

The latest shots show some of the conversations that players will be having with their ‘ultimate’ classmates.
