Heavy Metal Machines: Dirt Devil class releasing TOMORROW!
It is the season to be thankful! So developer Hoplon — in appreciation of all the fan love and support for Heavy Metal Machines, their hit Windows PC vehicular arena combat game — is carving up an extra serving of delectable chaos! Last month, they introduced Full Metal Judge as a new playable character. Tomorrow, they unleash a Steam update that adds a tenth all-new character: Dirt Devil!
The folly of man and his destructive ways have shaped the wasteland. Its terrain is unforgiving to its inhabitants, corroding both their vehicles and their scraps of remaining humanity. But one man flourishes in the sand seas of the wasteland, the Sand Gang captain himself: Dirt Devil! He earned his name thanks to his thirst for revenge against the towering sand worm, losing both his arm and eye in the process. His quest brings him to the Heavy Metal Machines arena in search of new prey to sharpen his combat skills for the fateful day when he can settle the score with his true enemy.
Dirt Devil specialises in creating chaos in the arena with his suite of disorienting skills, making him an incredibly effective Interceptor class character.

The Musa can now switch to the Crescent Blade, which is reminiscent of a polearm and capable of large sweeping attacks to rapidly clear the battlefield of anyone standing in the way.
