T3 Arena Adds New Update
Over the last few months, Chinese company XD Inc. has been building up T3 Arena, a 3 on 3 shooter in the spirit of Overwatch, for the mobile market. The game is currently in Early Access form on TapTap, a mobile game distribution platform with over 70 million users.
As of now, two more hero characters have just been added to the playable lineup: Hunter and Judex, along with additional maps and modes. XD says, “Hunter and Judex have both introduced new hero mechanics into T3 Arena’s fast-paced gameplay. For example, Hunter’s burst-fire rifle brings classic shooter mechanics into the game for the first time. With his ability to quickly knockback an enemy, Hunter provides a new set of gameplay dynamics in both short and long range situations.”
Several of the maps have also been revised as of this update, sporting improved graphics and a more blatant connection to the storyline of T3 (which hasn’t been revealed yet). A special section called The Lab allows players to try out new modes in development; the most recent, Payload Escort, was just added now. Feedback is welcome; T3 Arena is still a work in progress.
