Cyborg Arena has just been released this last week-end as an Early Access on Steam ! It is featuring the adventure map with 2 arena maps, and some additional arena maps are still in development and should come soon.
The adventure map is complete and features a story line where the player will discover the plot by listening to conversations between soldiers and commanders through the radios placed on the map. Voice acting has been done with subtitles to enhance the atmosphere.
The game has also already received many updates since its release to improve it and fix some issues which have been appearing lately. Here is a list of the small tweaks and fixes which were done :
- Fixed the cyborg boss sometimes not spawning in the small scrapyard of the adventure map
- Auto-shotgun is now more accurate
- Fixed lags in the arena mode
- Fixed the player collision mesh when crouching
- Fixed cyborgs who could not hit the player
- Added more cyborgs in the military base
- Fixed firing impacts effects of the cyborgs.
- Medkits will now extend boost time in arena mode
- Re-adjusted cyborgs accuracy for easy and medium difficulty
- Added a congratulation screen when completing the adventure map
Achievements were also added, with a total of 17 achievements to unlock. You can find the full list here : http://steamcommunity.com/stats/706440/achievements
More improvements and updates will of course come in the future. The next update should see the third arena map added to the game, which should be Scrapyard Night or Military Base.

I am very pleased to announce that Cyborg Arena is now available as an Early Access. The game will continue to be worked out and improved until the final release.
If you would be encountering any bugs or issues during playing, please let me know on the forum so that it can be addressed. The same also apply if you may have a suggestion or some feedback for the game.
After the game has left Greenlight to be announced as a Coming Soon, the development has been progressing well and with a lot of internal testing, Cyborg Arena will be available as an Early Access for this next week !
With a good news, it will come with more features than what was planned. To sum it up, the game will contains one large adventure map with 4 instant battle maps featuring the arena mode !
Here are some screenshots of the maps :
Rise of the Cyborgs (adventure)
Military Base (arena)
Scrapyard Night (arena)
Gas Station (arena)
The adventure map will have large explorable areas, with many items and weapons to find, a driveable buggy and a story line backed with voice acting and scripted sequences.
It will be also a good way to familiarize with the game before jumping into the arena mode, where the gameplay will switch from a survival shooter to a fast paced action game !
With collectible boost bonus to gain extra powers such as high speed, high jumps, unlimited ammo, explosive ammo, etc... achieve the best score against the cyborgs !
More news to come soon next, with the launch of the game and adding of achievements, stay tuned.
Thanks for reading.
Following the game being Greenlit on May 2017, the development has been progressing well since then with many additional contents and features added to what was initially planned !
The game will now consist of a large adventure map where you will be able to drive a buggy to explore large areas and collect dispersed items and weapons, with parallel tasks of finding and eliminating the cyborgs and their commanders.
Along the adventure map, battles maps will also be available and will be featuring an arena mode with boost bonus spawning during the game which give high jumps, invulnerability, unlimited ammo, high speed, etc... to resist for as long as possible against waves of cyborgs.
There are now also some new powerful weapons such as automatic shotguns, laser rifles and assault rifles which will be boostable with explosive ammo crates dispersed on the maps !
Of course, achievements to unlock will also be available, along support of Steam cloud and customisable graphics settings, including support for 4k resolution and the ability to play with Xbox-like gamepads.
The destruction system from Action Alien has also been brought the game and will be present in the adventure map and especially in the Gas Station map.
Right now the game is set as Coming Soon, but it is planned to be released as an Early Access in not longer than a month !
Watch out the new trailer !
