Annapurna Interactive announced BOUNTY STAR on July 29. Compatible platforms are PC (Steam) and PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X | S, scheduled to be released in 2023. It also supports Xbox Game Pass. According to the Steam store page, it will support Japanese display.
BOUNTY STAR is a robot action game from a TPS perspective. The stage is Red Expanse, a fictional wilderness in the southwestern United States. The player drives a robot and plays a wilderness battle as a prize money.
The protagonist is the wounded veteran Clem. A robot named Desert Raptor Mk II is a favorite machine. The aircraft can customize a variety of equipment, such as close-to-contact heavy firearms, hydraulic weapons, and explosive firearms. It is said that assistive equipment such as shields and booster can be installed. You can also check the state of a robot battle that uses such weapons in trailers. In addition to shooting such as machine guns and missiles, heavy melee attacks using swords, blunt instruments, and kicks are being played.
Evil criminals and beasts are widespread in the once rich agricultural and commercial areas. The government is entrusted to the prize money of the prize money. The protagonist seems to confront the robots and beasts of those who do not drive his favorite machine as one of the prize money.
There are also homes in the wilderness. At first it is a ragged hut, but it is also possible to renovate by players. Draw water and electricity, grow crops and cook. It seems that animals can be trained. It is also possible to purify ammunition and fuel in preparation for battle.
DINOGOD is the one who works on this work. The studio was founded in 2019 by creator Ben Ruiz. It seems that this work has been developed in cooperation with publishers since its establishment. I look forward to the appearance of a robot action game that can be polished slowly after almost four years of development period.
BOUNTY STAR will be released in 2023 for PC (Steam) and PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X | S.
