In case you missed the deployment of the Kickstarter for Heavy Gear Assault, there was a bit of a controversy when the list of goals promised “destructible environments and Gears, innovative e-sports integration and dynamic gun-to-melee combat”… but no single-player campaign.
As noted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun, the goals have now been updated to include “Episode 1 of the single-player story that makes you a part of Heavy Gear history. This first offline, single-player episode details the initial contact with Earth’s Colonial Expeditionary Force (CEF) and sets the stage for Terra Nova’s bid for independence.”
“Bitter enemies will unite to repel the CEF in what will be known as the War of the Alliance. This gripping first episode will be told through the eyes of military veterans turned duelists.”
