Heavy Metal Machines Gets New Update Focusing on Character Updates and Leaderboards; New Trailers Released

Hoplon announced a new update for their vehicular combat MOBA, Heavy Metal Machines, alongside releasing two new trailers.

Hoplon announced today that a new update is available for their vehicular MOBA, Heavy Metal Machines. The new update focuses on character updates for two of the drivers, a newly implemented leaderboard system and localization for three new languages. Alongside the announcement, we also get two new trailers, which can be seen below.

Here is a breakdown of the latest additions that come with the new update:

New Car Designs

Two of Heavy Metal Machine’s most notorious competitors will be receiving a visual revamp through the introduction of new 3D models and vehicle paintjobs. Both the Clunker brothers and the Metal Herald have had a visual upgrade, bringing to life their character with exciting and dynamic new looks.


This update will also see the unveiling of the game’s leaderboard system. At the beginning of every month players will now be ranked based on their stats over Seasons, which will be broken up into shorter phases and then refreshed to zero for the subsequent month. Players will have their performance tracked in three different categories: Damage Per Minute, Repair Per Minute, and Bombs Delivered. At the end of each season, Hall of Fame awards will be granted.

Additional Languages Supported

Heavy Metal Machines is now available in French, German, and Spanish.

Additionally, if this is your first time hearing about Heavy Metal Machines, here is an overview of the game from the official Steam Store page:

The fast-paced, action-packed car battle you were waiting for.

The apocalypse is over, only Heavy Metal Machines remain. Welcome to a world of madness, mayhem and relentless destruction where you will put survival of the fittest to the test, decimating your enemies just to survive.

Be insane, be very, very insane! With games of 4 vs 4, competitors from all over the world, you will never run out of death-defying stunts. Choose your character, pick a skin and make your own personal angel of destruction on four wheels. In this world, boldness is all that counts.

No gasoline; just pure adrenaline. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to destroy the enemy and deliver the bomb, not letting anything get in your way.
