Friday: Take a Ride on an AirMech

It's Friday, and we're celebrating with our final free-to-play selection: AirMech, a MOBA from developer Carbon Games. Now with 100 percent more Herzog Zwei!

Friday is here at last. Before you leave for the weekend, take a moment to check out our final free-to-play selection: AirMech. AirMech is a massive online battle arena that replaces the typical elves, warriors, and assorted Blizzard heroes seen in other MOBAs with transforming aircraft. The game is a definite nod to the classic Sega Genesis real-time strategy game Herzog Zwei, with a number of additions layered on top. And unlike some recent MOBAs, AirMech isn't afraid to keep things simple. We can't wait for you all to see it in action, so hit up the videos below!

@baxwam It does have a controller option. He says as much a couple of times in the video. I'm not sure about specific controllers, but since MS OS is the standard OS for about 89% of all home computers out there, there is a good chance that the Xbox style controller will be supported.

very excited for this game... hoping it comes to consoles eventually... Herzog Zwei was an amazing game and way ahead of it's time

The colour pallet and design looks amazing! The game itself, however, looks like a messy game of tug-of-war and a mishmash of genres. Not my cup of tea, but whatever floats your boat!

If only these games weren't free. Sure it may be balanced now but free games make me nervous. Hopefully it will end up like LoL and not become like all the terrible pay to win games out there.

First things, this game has a steep learning curve (if you haven't played it, I strongly suggest doing coop against AI's to get used to the gameplay and develop a style of playing) but otherwise has an addicting quality about it. I recommend giving it a try...

what I find interesting is that no one has mentioned the Macross/Robotech roots...the one plane that the guy uses looks exactly like a VF-1 fighter plane

@CyberLips - dude i've played this game and it's got a ton of potential. The game is still rough around the edges but it's a blast to play. Check it out...i think this game will become huge.
