If you are already anticipating Steel Battalion it seems like you have some drastic differences between the bonuses. Luckily, you have some time to analyze all three retail exclusives before you purchase the game.
Steel Battalion is coming to the Xbox 360, with Kinect motion control that allows players to truly feel immersed in the cockpit. The game takes place in 2082, as war is waged to struggle for world dominance, without semiconductors. The U.S. Army is forced to undergo a major landing operation to reclaim their soil. The lack of such advanced technology requires a focus on the Vertical Tank (VT).
Players will assume control of Lt. Powers as he controls a VT and attempts to embark on a mission of salvation. Using Kinect motion control will have players using their upper body gestures to perform a variety of actions in the VT. Starting the engine, operating the scope, and manning machine guns are just a few of the ways motion controls are used.
Look out for Steel Battalion Heavy Armour this summer.
