BRIGHTON, England — July 7, 2016 — Gunjin Games’ modern take on pen-and-paper car combat RPGs, Auto Warriors, is now available on iOS! Petrolheads pining for face-melting graphics and tactical turn-based combat in a single game: Your wishes have been granted.
Developed by Gunjin Games, a new mobile studio headed by Nick Baynes of Split/Second fame, Auto Warriors takes full advantage of the team’s AAA console experience to deliver hyper-detailed 3D models, real-time physics, stunning visual effects, and realistic environments at a scale never before seen on mobile. Content-wise, the game is launching with a massive 150-level single-player campaign and full-featured 1v1 and Fleet PvP multiplayer modes.
Auto Warriors is set in an alternate 2016 — thirty years after a small-scale nuclear exchange triggered a cascade of social and environmental disasters that engulfed the planet. Society has returned to a feudal state controlled by despotic barons. Technology has largely remained in the mid-1980s with cars and weapons based on ‘80s designs. The world in 2016 is a dirty, dangerous ruin that’s almost entirely unrecognizable from the 1980s — let alone our own present day….
The world’s most popular sport is the Auto Warrior tournament, a series of battles held in ramshackle arenas across the desolate plains — hosted by a self-entitled Baron that rules over the populace. The player is found by a passing Auto Warrior crew — left for dead in the aftermath of a brutal ambush. Through superior combat driving skills, the player somehow survived the encounter — and it’s time for those skills to be put to the test once again in the Auto Warrior tournament!
“Auto Warriors is a throwback to classic tabletop strategy games, brought to life on mobile with fast-paced action and awesome visuals,” says Nick Baynes, studio head at Gunjin Games. “We think players are going to love gameplay that mixes turn-based strategy with real-time physics and 3D graphics – to create a product that’s genuinely different to anything else out there. If you like cars and explosions (and who doesn’t!), we think you’re going to love the unique genre-busting Auto Warriors experience!”
