  • New Push Game Mode: Today you can finally play the newest core game mode “Push”. In Push, teams will compete on a symmetrical map to take control of a robot in the middle of the map. A team can progress the robot towards enemy lines by staying in perimeter of it, making sure the enemy team does not contest by getting too close. Barricades will be scattered throughout the map which will slow the robot down as it keeps pushing towards the enemy.
  • Six New Maps: Savor breathtaking sights as the fight moves to new locales across Queen Street, Circuit Royal, Midtown, Colosseo, Esperança, and Paraíso. Play all your favorite core game modes in these new and exciting locations. Plus, many existing maps received new daytime and nighttime variants where you can see your favorite areas in a new light.
