War Robots Expands to the PvE Zone With New Extermination Game Mode
MY.GAMES announces that War Robots, Pixonic team’s flagship PvP mobile shooter, is launching its permanent PvE mode, “Extermination”, now available in the latest Update, 8.8.
Bringing PvE to PvP games is a challenge very few developers have attempted, so for the team, it was a big and bold experiment. Since its launch in 2014, War Robots has always been known to be about players battling other players. However, from the very beginning, the dev team has been pondering the idea of adding PvE, so that players can take a break from intense multiplayer fights and experience War Robots Universe from a different perspective.
The concept of Extermination was born at Pixonic Tech Days, where every team member can step away from their routine tasks and experiment and get creative. A very early version of PvE briefly appeared in War Robots in May 2022 as a limited-time event. The feedback was very positive, and fans have been increasingly asking for a mode like this to be added, so bringing PvE to the game has only been a matter of time.
“At times, players' ideas can diverge from developers' vision, but that was not the case with the PvE mode in War Robots. It seems like anyone who has ever played the game has dreamt about it at least once. So when the opportunity arose to make it a reality, it was a perfect storm: players had been asking for it, and the team couldn't wait to deliver. It was a challenging project, but also a fun and exciting thing to do.” – Boris Burangulov, Executive Producer of War Robots.
In Extermination, players must pick a squad of mechs and fight giant robotic spiders across different levels to get valuable rewards. Each level gets progressively harder and offers bigger prizes.
At first, commanders will tackle small enemies called Ticks that don’t pose a serious threat individually but tend to attack in swarms. Late-game enemies will be a serious threat even to seasoned players, and at the final level, Bastion, the boss of the Extermination, awaits. There is no limit on how many times players can attempt to complete the run, and the overall progress resets every couple of weeks.
To start off this adventure, the team prepared a very special cinematic. It will explain how legendary pilot Nessa Riggs, the central character of Extermination, first encountered the Grey Swarm.
