City of Heroes and WildStar producer NCSoft has revealed its latest title, a futuristic mech battling title doing what 80-foot robots do best - knocking seven shades of crap out of one another. Project HON, standing for Humanoid robot On Neuro-control, was unveiled at G-Star 2014 in Korea, and looks to be an MMOFPS coming to PC next year, making use of Epic’s Unreal Engine 4.
It’s difficult to tell exactly what Project HON entails, but it definitely looks inspired by the likes of Armored Core, featuring extremely mobile mechs with some fairly insane weapon loadouts, including giant grappling hooks destined to put a dent in many a mech. It looks like it can be sent out to grab other mechs, hurling them back in for a pummeling from your iron fist. [More]
