COMMAND

Choose from four commanders, each representing a different faction and bringing with them their own unique power, traits and play style.

Think tactically as you move your units, clash with rival mecha, and watch the outcome in dramatic battle sequences inspired by 90s Japanese animation.

DEPLOY

Call in reinforcements from orbit by picking from a range of mass-produced units with differing combat roles.

Assemble a force to lead into battle and strike fear into the enemy with imposing second-generation Variable Armours, piloted exclusively by your commander.

ADVANCE

Push forward and secure your supremacy on a battlefield of hexagonal area tiles.

Use a variety of terrain types to take cover or undermine the enemy, and capture structures to gain additional resources or deployment sites.

BATTLE

Inflict status effects, plant traps, support allies. Each type of Variable Armour is armed with its own specialist equipment and unique skills, allowing you to engage the enemy with a variety of tactical options.

CAMPAIGN

WARBORN takes place in the Auros System, during a time of war and political uncertainty.

While inter-faction disputes erupt, see the war unfold from the eyes of four different commanders across a story-driven campaign featuring over 40 missions.
