New Game Modes Announced

SwapBots - Game

Yes, after thousands of hours of testing and development we have implemented a new game mode. As you can see from the video, it’s non-AR Battle Mode – this will enable the Bots to do battle in more extreme ways. Without the animation being tied directly to the static toy we can allow for action and excitement that levels up the gameplay experience.

The transition from the real-world AR environment to the 3D battlefield is super-slick too – it’s quite unlike anything we’ve seen before in other augmented experiences. This new game mode is all about making the most of both AR and more conventional 3D games.

The new game mode brings flexibility for the player – when AR is not practical you can always keep playing. However, it means that we need to come up with multiple new animations and really up the action! There’s also a need to design full environments rather than individual 3D assets. It’s a massive challenge for the team here, but if it means a more complete and versatile game experience for SwapBots backers, then it’s well worth it.

We can’t wait for you to try it!
