Epoch 2 (By Uppercut Games)

Uppercut Games has revealed to IGN that Epoch 2 is deep in development. Besides continuing Epoch's robot apocalypse storyline (finally giving gamers the opportunity to rescue the missing Princess Amelia), Epoch 2 also introduced a variety of gameplay improvements.

A new melee combat system provides gamers an up-close-and-personal way to dispatch their robotic foes. The in-game camera and environments have also been made more dynamic, featuring stages set on moving trains, swinging ledges and more. Finally, an active reload system cribbed from Epic's Gears of War franchise gives you reason to time those reloads perfectly.

In terms of pure numbers, Epoch 2 also includes the requisite "more" that it seems every sequel must include. Uppercut promises the campaign lasts are 3X as long, with 8 fresh enemies and 5 new weapons to keep returning Epoch veterans on their toes.

This looks extremely cool. Looks like it'll be a really deep gaming experience, exactly what we need more of on mobile devices.

Still haven't beat the first one in Ultra mode. They have a point naming it Ultra mode.

Came here hoping to see E-P's response. I'm very excited too, and this cannot land in my hands fast enough.
