Today InnoGames introduced new details of the Sci-Fi MMORPG Bounty Hounds Online (BHO). On www.bountyhounds.com they present the CTUs (Combat & Tactical Units), robots that accompany the player throughout the game. The presentation includes a brand new introduction video (given above).
Designed after animals such as scorpions or dinosaurs, Combat & Tactical Units are the player’s loyal and protective robot companions which fight with untiring bravery. They are divided into three classes: Steelblade, Thunderbolt, and Ironback. Each class possesses distinct attributes, capabilities, and exclusive combat skills. The CTUs will not only be named by the players and level along with them, they can also be improved by the use of machine modifiers, and the teaching of new skills. Every player can obtain up to five CTUs, which are even customizable with specific paint jobs. The Combat & Tactical Units also recharge energy in combat. When a CTU has fully recharged its energy, it can temporarily transform into a very impressive and deadly war machine to wreak havoc upon its enemies.
Set in the 25th century, the game sends its players as mercenaries to Clear Sky Planet, mankind’s retreat after a huge galactic war against extraterrestrial units. As a member of one of four mercenary factions, the mission is to keep the fragile peace. In order to enter the battlefield, players choose one of five unique mercenary classes with different skills and weapons.
The Open Beta for Bounty Hounds Online starts on August 2. Closed Beta has already been completed. 1000 players provided InnoGames with valuable information for further updates and the development of new features for the Open Beta of the free-to-play game.
