Steel Storm is a top down arcade shooter with old school spirit. The game has score oriented competitive gameplay, and is designed for people who like fast paced action, hordes of smart enemies, destructible worlds and ground shaking explosions.

The events take place in an alternative universe where you are a pilot of R.I.A.C. (Royal Interstellar Armored Corps), who controls an advanced hovertank, packed with the most advanced and sophisticated weapons. Your task is simple, but nevertheless not trivial. In the fight against separatist Union forces, you must prevail!

Key features:

  • Enjoy fast paced and streamlined gameplay
  • 20+ hours of gameplay
  • Engage in online warfare with up to 16 players in any of the multi-player modes
  • Pave your way to victory with the burning remains of your enemies through 25 different campaign missions
  • Complete Challenges and unlock First-Person camera mode
  • Create new missions or modify existing ones using the unique real-time collaborative mission editor and share them with the world
