London, UKJuly 30, 2014 — Today, Ubisoft ® and Carbon Games announced that AirMech ® Arena, the fast-paced real-time strategy game that is free to play* for all Xbox Live accounts on the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, is now available.

In AirMech Arena, players command giant transforming mechs that fight to capture and protect bases while building colossal armies to take on waves of enemies. As players conquer fortresses, they unlock powerful units, pilots, items and AirMechs and can customize their armies to fit their personal gameplay preferences.

“AirMech Arena combines real-time strategy with fast-paced action in an exciting new way,” said James Green, game director at Carbon Games. “Strategy fans will appreciate that AirMech Arena was designed for consoles from the very start, and how natural the controls feel in their hands.”

Players can choose between nine giant transforming AirMechs, each with their own unique abilities and upgrades in the battle to capture and protect bases. Sixty different support units are available to select from, and eight can be used during each match to help defeat opponents. Featuring single-player, head-to-head, multiplayer cooperative and multiplayer competitive gameplay for teams of two to three players, teamwork and strategy are vital as players must work together to defend their fortresses against an onslaught of relentless enemies.
