Rigs Mechanized Combat League: Single-Player Career Mode Detailed

We’ve already shown quite a bit of the three-on-three online mode in Rigs Mechanized Combat League, Guerrilla’s upcoming arena-based shooter launching exclusively for PlayStation VR. But today, we want to give you more details on the other modes included with the game.

Set in the near future, Rigs Mechanized Combat League mixes elements from different athletic fields like combat sports, motorsports, and basketball into an explosive cocktail. At the heart of the game are the Rigs — large, heavily armed athletic sport machines which you’ll get to pilot as you compete for the number one spot in the Mechanized Combat League.

In addition to the three-on-three online mode, which sees you team up with two other players to challenge an opposing team of three players, the game features a one-on-one online mode in which you team up with two AI pilots to challenge an opposing player backed by two AI pilots. You can have a friendly match against someone from your PSN Friends list, or play an exhibition match against a randomly selected opponent.

Rigs Mechanized Combat League also offers an extensive offline single-player experience featuring a Career Mode. In Career Mode, you and your team of AI pilots rise through the leagues as you defeat other teams, earn fame and fortune, and gain access to new Rigs and pilots. In total, there are 24 unique Rigs to unlock, each with their own style of play. While climbing the ranks in Career Mode you will also impress sponsors and obtain exclusive sponsorship deals, liveries, and pilot outfits.

Speaking of pilot outfits: if you pre-order Rigs Mechanized Combat League today, you’ll receive a set of exclusive Guerrilla-themed outfits including helmet, uniform, and visor graphics. What better way to show your allegiance to the founders of the Mechanized Combat League? The game launches alongside PlayStation VR on October 13, so make sure you secure your copy from select retailers here.

  • Is RIGS only playable in VR, or will I be able to play it the traditional way?

    • It says in the first paragraph that it’s launching exclusively for PlayStation VR.

    • RIGS Mechanized Combat League is a PlayStation VR exclusive. It supports traditional controls on the gamepad, but you’ll still need a PSVR kit at launch. :)

  • when will I be able to preorder VR games on the US PSN

    • Digital preorders in the US for all PSVR games are being worked on by PlayStation at the moment. Meanwhile you can pre-order the physical copy from retailers nation-wide. (Click the link at the end of the video to learn more)
      The pre-order bonus is not retailer exclusive, and is available with both the physical disc and the digital pre-order of the game. However, do confirm with your retailer of choice before pre-ordering.

  • Is the preorder bonus from an exclusive retailer ??

  • RIGS is my most anticipated PSVR title, and I’m glad it will be releasing day 1 with the headset. I wasn’t aware preorders are already live? Need to go secure my copy!

  • If I can get my hands on PSVR hardware, I’d be up for buying and trying games like this. The demo I tried of PSVR totally sold me on the games I got to try and this one although not in demo seems among the best exclusive PSVR entries in all the games I am aware of.

    • We’ve been taking the game across the globe, and are usually at all major gaming expos/events. Hopefully you get to play at an event near you soon. :)

  • I was hoping Rigs would have a single player mode. Well done! Will the Rigs feature full customization and are all the matches set in the day? I’d love to battle under the stars! I hope I can play day 1!

    • 1. RIGS are bespoke machines made with a specific weapons loadout and ability for each of the 24 we have in the game.
      2. Stay tuned for the next update!

  • Day 1. Love you Guerrilla, and Cambridge.

  • At launch, will Team Guerrilla battle fans in live streamed matches for community bragging rights?

  • Will there be a demo available in the psn store at launch? I want to know if this game will mess with my motion sickness.
