Auto Age: Standoff is an upcoming car combat MOBA

Though I’ve definitely toned down my addiction, I’ve still got the softest of spots for MOBAs. It’s an addictive genre, and one I can’t quite see myself being weaned off entirely, at least not anytime soon.

That being said, I do feel fatigued now and then, and I do feel that this particular market is quite flooded. We’ve already got the giants, Dota 2, League of Legends, and Heroes of the Storm, accompanied by the likes of SMITE and Heroes of Newerth. They all play similarly, truth be told, yet trying to stand out in that crowd requires some true magic.

That’s exactly what I think Auto Age: Standoff has though. I honestly don’t know if this upcoming car combat MOBA will be successful, or if it’ll stand the test of time, but it does certainly look different, and like a lot of fun to play. Here, take a look see for yourself (via PC Gamer):

In 2080, the future is bright but deadly. America is on the road to recovery after decades of disaster. Militarized motorists keep the peace in the east. Wheeled gangs rule the western wastes. A series of radio relays connects sea to shining sea. A mysterious voice crackles through the static, beckoning travelers into the desert canyons of the Dead Zone. Do you dare answer the call?

Choose your side in head-to-head battles where killer cars assault armed desert base stations. Drive a hero vehicle and assemble a support convoy designed to destroy a desert warlord. Customize and upgrade your vehicles and defenses as you collect precious energy deposits. Choose weapons, augmentations and station enhancements to engage in visceral car combat your way.

How cool? Auto Age: Standoff has something about it that reminds me a lot of Borderlands in terms of the environments, and the driving itself. It also looks nice and retro, and dammit, I can’t stop tapping my foot to this song! I’d definitely like to give this game a try.

What about you? Does Auto Age: Standoff appeal to you in any way whatsoever? I’ve added it to my wishlist, and eagerly await beta access!

    No! Enough Mobas! Enough now! It’s getting out of hand. Pretty soon EVERY SINGLE game will have a Moba element and we won’t have different genres of games. We’ll have different genre’s of MOBA.

    MOBA Horror
    MOBA Racing
    MOBA Platformer
    MOBA Top Down
    MOBA FPS
    MOBA CANDY CRUSH FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!!

    NO NO NO NO STAAAAAAAHHHHHP!!!!!!

            I’m sure there will be many more regrets, like when Gavin buys an Oculus for the office

          Yeah but it didn’t make money. MOBA’s are about the money (from the company’s side) – so sadly the Mech MOBA won’t happen.

          Still, MOBA’s can go away now. We have enough, thanks.

    As much as the aesthetic is cool, it looks dull. Like, very dull.

    I find some of the covers of newer games so interesting.
    Like these beautifully done artworks for the game covers that I see on Steam…then I click on it and it’s a pixelated game. Huh?
    I love pixelated games, but I went there with an expectation to see something entirely different.

      YES! It’s actually so annoying in an age where you have such a diverse range of graphic styles. Previously, you knew. You knew that the cover was just a cover, and that the game was pixel graphics. Then you knew it was isometric. Then you knew it was shitty 3D. You knew. Also by turning the box over and looking at the back for screenshots.

      Now instead of turning a box over, you click a link. IT’S HORRIBLE. HOW DARE THEY?

      /sarcasm

      Yeah it’s no different to how it always is. Yet it still annoys me. I don’t understand why. Maybe it’s because we’ve been spoiled with too much information at hand, with everything being so easily accessible. Meh, idk. cba right now, it’s almost lunch time on the day before a public holiday.

            Yumm. I’ve got a steak at home, just need wine.

          • Pariah

            April 26, 2016 at 12:14

            We have wine, beer & whiskey at home. We’re not big drinkers, so when people buy us stuff or when we buy to entertain, we kinda get stock for the odd glass we’ll have once every few months. XD

            April 26, 2016 at 12:25

            Save the whiskey, perhaps the wine, drink the beer. Consume them according to shelf life

          • Pariah

            April 26, 2016 at 12:28

            Yeah it pretty much works in that order. Whiskey is a once every 18-24 month purchase, it usually lasts that long.

          • Admiral Chief in New York

            April 26, 2016 at 12:33

            Some people I know don’t even keep Whiskey for 18-24 hours

            April 26, 2016 at 12:34

            Yep, I know a few myself. But, it’s why the cheapest I buy is a 12 year, or a special reserve. Can’t afford more, but I don’t go through the shit like coffee, so can afford the minimum.

            Now if only you were closer. Could have organized you something.
            We recently launched a new range.
            Gonna try the Shiraz tonight, and the new Chardonnay tomorrow.

    Moba style is one of the modes, we have various modes but we stick to the run and gun car combat gameplay in all of them. Join the steam community and let us know what you want to see! http://store.steampowered.com/app/458680
