The Beast Wars have returned!

The battle lines have been drawn and, orchestrated by the devious Predacon Wingspan, the fragile cease-fire that survived for centuries between the Maximals and Predacons has been shattered.

Which of the Beast factions will conquer both their ancient enemies and the hazardous the Sonic Wastes to take the Brightsoul Matrix for themselves?

And what of the Autobots and Decepticons? Will they just stand aside to watch these events, or have they rallied amongst themselves and prepared their own plan of action? *IF* you can follow the links, then you will find out.

Stay tuned to the Heavy Metal War forums to watch as the battle unfolds...


============================================================

The Maximal vs. Predacon tournament begins today! Read below for the details needed.

============================================================

Peace and treaties have been thrown aside because of the treachery of the Citizens of Chayot. The rogue Predacon team falsely summoned and then ambushed members of the Predacon High Command to renew the Beast Wars. Successfully framing the Maximals they have seeded information to both factions about a lost artifact of power, the Brightsoul Matrix, which is fabled to be a direct conduit for Primus’ power. With this artifact the faction commanders fear their enemies could easily overwhelm and conquer all of Cybertron. The Citizens of Chayot, under the command of their former captain Archistrategos, secretly intend to use the Brightsoul – along with lost the Autobot Matrix of Leadership – to revive their fallen ancestors and end the Great War.

Beast forces now line the Sonic Waste borders, preparing to plunge into intense urban warfare as they each hunt for the Brightsoul Matrix. Prepare now to fight for your faction’s survival!

============================================================

This is a HMW game tournament based on the Predacon and Maximal factions, which will be run over 3 stages beginning today. It was scripted by Wingspan, based on an idea by Absolute Zero and extended to involve the Autobots and Decepticons by Psychout.

Wingspan of the Predacons has kicked off the sign-up for our first big tourney of 2009, and its a battle between the Maximals and Predacons in a race to find the Brightsoul Matrix, an almost unknown artifact of great power.

All Maximal and Predacon players are invited to join in and race against your generations's enemies -
Which faction will be first to find the Matrix, and what will be left of those who who stand against them?

It all begins on the 2nd March, the day the Beast Wars will be re-ignited.

And if you are of the first generation - Autobots and Decepticons - call into your faction command chamber, as you will have your part to play too...

=============

Power wielded properly can be a tool of conquest, glory, and even benevolence. Improperly, and the iron fist of tyranny shall crush all before it. The aim for many however is not how to wield great power, simply to wield it at all. – Cybertronian Proverb

With Cybertron on the brink of self-destruction from energon depletion the warring forces of Maximals and Predacons have entered into an uneasy truce. Both factions hoped to forgo war to give time to science and innovation in healing their home.

Two centuries later the peace has amounted to little more than a temporary cease fire. The lofty hopes for peace were never realized. Cybertron is still deprived of its needed energy because neither of the two factions trusted the other enough to ignore potential conflict and make real efforts to healing their home.

Now tensions between their respective high commands over the lack of progress have lead to border skirmishes as tests to the enemies readiness. The battles have been lopsided, favoring one faction or the other, with rare demonstrations of the real force either side can offer. As the borders have continually grown more hostile and full war seems imminent all hopes to heal Cybertron seem lost.

One rogue collection of Predacons has quietly observed this change and is now choosing to take action. They have unearthed legends of a lost artifact in the Sonic Wastes of untold raw power, the Brightsoul Matrix, which could change all balances in the fight for Cybertron. With world-wide conflict already about to break out they are choosing to instigate the war now. The Beast forces will clash first in the Sonic Wastes and both Maximal and Predacon teams will have to choose – will they enter the region of Stanix and risk going permanently offline or will they allow unmeasured power fall into enemy hands?

Beast Warriors, choose now! Signup here for the Maximal vs. Predacon Tournament: War in the Wastes!

We've known that this has been coming for years.

Since the Heavy Metal Warriors first faced off against each other back in 2003 we have seen HMW grow and develop into the wargame we all know and love to hate, but we also knew its time was running out and a new world would one day take its place.

Then, a month ago, this was released: The first teaser for HMW2.
The first peek into a whole new world and whet the appetite for what was to come.

Now, thanks to Omega Sentinel, we can get our next insight in to how some aspects of the future of Heavy Metal War will change.
Concentrating on the new dual-wield weapon systems and introducing the concept of 'Spark Points' to your transformations, the programmer who has taken Heavy Metal War and made it just that little bit more Heavy presents...


Alts and Ammo! The second trailer for Heavy Metal War II
Sorry the quality is kind of bad. Best I could do with a short amount of time.


There ya go folks, the words of a genius.

Got an opinion or questions about the video?
Wanna find out more about HMW2?
Never even heard of HMW!?!

Then join us in the organised chaos that is the Heavy Metal War discussion boards for more information, discussion, insights and arguments about the future of HMW, and more.

ACTIVISION GEARS UP FOR MONUMENTAL BATTLE WITH TRANSFORMERS™: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN



Santa Monica, CA – February 6, 2009 – The fate of the earth and the survival of the human race hang in the balance in the Transformers™: Revenge of the Fallen video game from Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). Based on Hasbro’s legendary TRANSFORMERS property and the most anticipated blockbuster film of 2009 from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures in association with Hasbro, the game propels players straight into an adrenaline-pumping battle for supremacy across the globe where every second and every choice makes the difference between mankind’s salvation and annihilation.



“The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game will give fans the chance to experience their favorite AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS in an all-new, movie inspired adventure packed with the thrilling and explosive action that only the TRANSFORMERS universe can deliver,” said Rob Kostich, vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc. “We are thrilled to announce that after experiencing the rush of commanding colossal robots on their own, players can challenge their friends for the first time ever in full-featured, blistering multiplayer action as their favorite characters.”



“Activision has developed a Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game that will give gamers and fans a truly compelling way to experience TRANSFORMERS,” said Mark Blecher, Hasbro’s General Manager of Digital Gaming and Media. “The Activision team’s passion for the property clearly shows in the character development, intense action and rich graphics that really deliver an immersive experience for the user.”



The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game lets gamers step into the shoes of the AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS, select any available mission and pick from the largest, most diverse range of playable Transformers – each with their own distinct abilities and weaponry. Set in unique environments across the globe such as Cairo and Shanghai, the game allows players to instantly switch between vehicle and robot modes as they drive, fly, fight and blast their way through intense, pressure-packed levels. After engaging in single player action, players for the first time ever will be able to go online and battle friends in all-new multiplayer modes.



The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game is currently in development by Luxoflux for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and for Windows PC by Beenox Studios.



Also, award-winning Krome Studios is developing distinct Wii™ and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system versions, utilizing the individual platform features to deliver an intense 3rd person action adventure game that combines dynamic robot combat with arcade-style vehicle sequences and flight-based levels. In addition, two completely different titles are being developed for Nintendo DS™ by Vicarious Visions, allowing players to take on AUTOBOT or DECEPTICON-specific campaigns. For the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, a unique, fast-paced action arcade title is being developed by Savage Entertainment.

Marketed by Milton Bradley, this new game looks to be ready for release alongside the movie sequel due out this summer.

Currently at this time, the only information available is a picture of the box cover, with the phrases, "Blast Your Way To Victory", and "Kapow!" and some character battle art.

A two player battle game meant for the children, the cover does seem to feature the newly designed Megatron that is NOT supposed to be a part of the sequel.

As the movie nears, expect the marketing and cross promotion blitz to increase exponentially. You can see the original thread here.

Hey guys,
OS has made some alterations to the Heavy Metal War missions!

As well as modifying the mission brackets to account for our new level 4's over the next few days, we've tweaked a few of the mission genration rules in the hope that they work a bit better for you all from now on.

1) ALL Predacon and Maximal mission weightings have set to the lowest amount so they should now ONLY triggered by a Max/Pred being active.
2) Likewise, Bot v Con and Pred v Max mission weightings have been raised so these should now be the auto generated ones.
3) ALL BW v G1 missions have been reduced to 4v4 participants
4) Pred v Max missions have been left at 6v6


So, drop in to HMW:GD and tell us you think, is it any better?
