corporation born out of a desire to “heal the world,” no matter the human cost.
Leading the opposition are the United States Free Forces, who are waging a war
of resistance against HUMNX to try and take back their freedom. Armed with an
experimental weapon, The Archangel, the resistance has landed a serious blow on
HUMNX, but the war is just beginning. HUMNX resources are plentiful, and while
they may have lost a decisive battle, they have been working on weapons of their
own to face off against Archangel-class mechs.
Archangel: Hellfire introduces
the new Team Deathmatch mode, in which players and their squad will pilot
six-story high war machines and engage in an all-out 2v2 PvP battle for the
control of a post-apocalyptic world, aligning with either the United States Free
Forces or HUMNX corporation. In addition, players can jump into Archangel:
Hellfire’s Cooperative Mode, and face off against a horde of enemies in solo or co-op
The game adds four new maps to face off in brutal post-apocalyptic battlegrounds
with highly destructible features, six new warrior mechs and three distinct
classes, each with their own powerful abilities and custom weapon systems, and
all-new fully functional cockpit controls.
