Description: In the world of XLR, future humanity is fighting for its survival as companion AI has become the dominant life form. Some AI has deemed humanity a scourge worth wiping out, while other AI has deemed humanity an endangered species worth preserving and honouring as the AI progenitors. Most remaining human factions have banded together under a new super banner called the Earth Recovery Consortium (ERC) to pool resources and form strike teams for continued survival. Their most frequently pressing objectives are to raid hostile AI-controlled facilities for energy, technology, and supplies. While most of humanity agrees that ERC goals must always be met for continued survival (ERC goals coming soon to matches), invariably every sub-faction has its own side agendas for each mission, in hopes of one day wresting control from the other side of the AIER war.

You’ll party up into factions (with friends, or just join a random match), then land in a drop-ship with your strike team at an enemy facility. After selecting a MetaFrame for your conscience to intertwine with symbiotically, your team will deploy to various battlegrounds. Don’t worry, If you need some training, you can always go up against some simulated enemy combatants in singleplayer training mode.

Review: XLR is a game that had a lot of promise. The main story and gameplay of the game was looking good and if this game has more content it might have been worth the small price that it requests. But sadly it looks like this is one game that will never get finished, never grow in content amount as it looks like it has been abandoned. Who knows, maybe one day in the future the developer will come back to this game and give it a little more attention. But for now, it is one best avoided.
