Metal Assault, the 2d side-scroller MMO by Aeria Games has officially launched their Closed Beta testing phase, inviting certain-special-someones to wreak some havoc with their friends. MMOCrunch has received 250 beta keys from our friends at Aeria, and we want to share them with you right now! Visit our beta giveaway page to secure your own key, and then jump past the cut for instructions.
What is Metal Assault, exactly? Players can expect a futuristic side-scrolling shooter that is fast-paced and flashy (think Metal Slug). Anime characters populate this world, and players will choose from four different characters (Carl, Burton, Marie, and Ai) who each bring their own unique skills to the table. Through PvP or Co-Op scenarios, players can gather points and items by slaying enemies and generally causing chaos. It’s a nice, casual title that provides great replayability with little to no learning curve.
Here’s how you can get in on the action:
Step 1: Obtain a Metal Assault (MA) Closed Beta key.
Step 2: Visit Aeria Games and log in to your account (or create a new one if you don’t already have one).
Step 3: Go to the MA Key Redemption Page and enter your key (you need to be logged in to view the key entry field).
Step 4: Download MA using one of the options available on the Download page.
Step 5: You’re all set to go! Simply log into the game and start playing.
