MetalCore is an open-world first-person space combat game built with Unreal Engine 4. MetalCore will offer PvP battles, Cooperative PvE fights, and open-world clashes. Select mechs, ground vehicles or aircrafts and battle through air and group vehicle skirmishes across a harsh, metal-rich planet.
The game’s story revolves around a civil war that has broken out across the Solar Empire. Due to this chaos, new technology emerges that allows humans to colonize worlds outside their star system. Several spaceships begin their journey towards a new star called TRM-175 “Kerberos” and finally arrive at the metal-rich planet after a thousand-year journey. Now they have to fight and live on this alien planet with extreme consequences.
MetalCore is the first massively multiplayer online (MMO) combat game powered by Immutable X.

- Barony System: The game has something called a Barony System in which you can rent or borrow vehicles of your faction to fight and reap the rewards on their behalf.
- Faction War: You can choose your side and wage war against the rest. There are factions, namely despotic Gearbreakers, theocratic Holy Corporation, or anarchic Metalpunks.
- The Garage: You can craft vehicles in your garage, and they will belong to you only as they are NFTs. You can ride them, sell them or loan them.
- Mechanized Combat: Select mechs and ground vehicles and use them in your battles across the metal-rich planet.
