Sega brings arcade game Border Break to PS4 as free to play

This looks a bit like Virtual ON.

Free-to-play Border Break announced for PS4

Due out in 2018. Open beta set for February.

Sega is bringing its 2009-launched robot action arcade game series Border Break to PlayStation 4, the company announced during its Border Break New Project Presentation Held in Japan today. Simply titled Border Break, it will launch in Japan as a free-to-play download title with item-based micro-transactions in 2018. A physical version with extra bonuses will also be released. An open beta, playable even without a PlayStation Plus subscription, will be held in February.

Border Break for PlayStation 4 will feature 10-versus-10 high-speed robot battles across a wide variety of maps. It will support both the DualShock 4 controller and mouse as control methods. Players will be able to customize their battle robot to their liking with every possible part. There are four types of weapons available:
  • Assault Weapons – Expand the front lines with high mobility.
  • Heavy Fire Weapons – Pulverize enemies with overwhelming fire power.
  • Raid Weapons – Overthrow the battlefield in response to any situations.
  • Support Weapons – Supports allies from behind the scenes with search and repair operations.

The following modes will be playable:

- Story Mode – Expands the world of Border Break.

Main Characters
Hati (voiced by Reina Ueda) – The protagonist burning with revenge.
Mikoto (voiced by Rie Takahashi) – The operator that supports the team.
Managar (voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi) – The powerful ace that blocks your way.
Other unique characters will appear in large numbers. Popular illustrators are also participating in their creation.

- Beginner Match – Player-versus-CPU battle.

- Casual Match – Casual player-versus-player battles without rank changes.
