Yeah, you read that right.
As strange as it sounds, Cosmic Break is essentially a free-to-play game that features robust customization like Armored Core’s system, gameplay that feels like a cross between Custom Robo and Virtual On, and little anime girls. And it’s awesome. Hit up the break to see what I’m talking about.
The basic concept of the game is that three different groups, representing three gods, are vying to see whose god will be resurrected to defeat the Chaos. The three factions are your requisite groups: Courageous but foolhardy BRD, the powerful DOS, and the smart WIZ. The game features three different game modes: Mission, which involves blasting random AI enemies, Quest, which sends you on specific goals, and Arena, which features an epic battle between a max of 30 players from two different factions. Though the mission and quest games are pretty fun, the REAL meat is in Arena. Only two days into the beta there are already some truly powerful players in the game, so no matter your skill level you should be able to find someone to match you.
What might just be the best part of the game is the customization. The paint mode lets you change nearly everything about each robot, including the textures that cover it and the polygon maps of just about every head in the game. I have never seen an online game that lets you make your character as individual as this one does; there are literally thousands of possibilities! Multiple parts are interchangeable, but each bot has a maximum Cost value that can’t be exceeded. While it seems low on some of the bots, it’s pretty robust.
There are four different types of robot for any play style out there: LND, which focuses on ground battle and close melee combat, AIR, boasting high booster capacity but a short boosting distance, ART, focusing on long-range weapons with high damage output, and SUP, which deals with healing and support. Regardless of how you like your robot loli combat flavored, there’s something for all tastes.
The game’s in open beta right now and, with a so-far huge playerbase, you should have no trouble finding opponents in the persistent world of Cosmic Break. Your only difficult choice should be which of the three factions you’ll side with. Cosmic Break is definitely an excellent little freebie to waste some time with if you have nothing better to do.
