The world of Heavy Gear Assault is unforgiving — but so is your lust for glory. As a pilot on the distant planet Terra Nova, you play the high-stakes game of competitive Gear Dueling. You earn fame and fortune by making a name for yourself on the arena floor. You stand out from the crowd by customizing the look and style of your Gear. You manage corporate sponsors, hire a support staff and fine-tune your Gear's performance in the Gear Bay. You rise to the top, claim your position — and with every cannon shell left in your magazines, you refuse to let go.

Heavy Gear Assault puts you in control of a multi-ton, humanoid war machine better known as a Gear. The peak of Terra Novan engineering, Gears feature a Rotary V-Engine, an advanced, compact and highly efficient internal combustion engine. For faster speeds, Gears are equipped with a Secondary Movement System (SMS) in the form of either wheels or treads under their feet. Armored with advanced composites and loaded with an assortment of weapons, Gears are the most advanced weapon platform available on Terra Nova.

It is up to you to manage and maintain your Gears on the arena floor and off. Customize, upgrade, and equip yours Gears exactly how you like. In combat, you’ll need to balance hydraulic and electric power to keep your Gear moving. Just remember, whether you eviscerate your enemy with relentless firepower or put a precision VibroKatana blade in their back, be sure to do it with style. After all, that's what your fans paid to see.

The award-winning Heavy Gear Assault is being released in a modular format, culminating with the launch of the Heavy Gear persistent universe with episodic single player warfare. The Battle Module is currently available for purchase and play. For more information please visit http://www.heavygear.com

About Heavy Gear

Heavy Gear is a game universe published since 1994 by Canadian publisher Dream Pod 9. It includes a tabletop tactical wargame, a role-playing game and a lesser known combat card game (Heavy Gear Fighter). The setting is also known through the PC-game incarnations published by Activision in 1997 and 1999, developed after Activision lost the rights to the Battletech/MechWarrior series. It also spawned a 40-episodes, 3D-animated TV series in 2001, which featured a much simplified version of the universe developed in the role-playing game.
