What You Need to Know:
Bounty Hounds Online is a sci-fi MMORPG where players take command of their own
mercenary in multiple worlds and environments. Players can select up to 5 different mercenary class types: The capable Trooper, the deadly Agent, the supportive Bioengineer, the destructive Artillery, and the eccentric Scientist. Assisting the player is the CTU, or Combat Tactical Unit, which is a robotic pet capable of transforming into a combat mech in case things get tough.
Players also have to choose which Mercenary Company they are aligned with. Although all the mercenary groups are working towards the same goal, they are still separate entities and so a few conflicts between its operatives may arise. PvP between mercenaries or whole groups of them are possible as well as forming specific groups called Wolfpacks which allow you to further lay claim to your fame and glory!
The game starts in the serene world of Empyrea where players unravel political corruption as well as other organizations trying to control the scene. Fight criminals, or aliens as you progress into a fully fledged Bounty Hunter capable of traversing other worlds where more dangers and treasures await.
Unique to Bounty Hounds Online is the CTU systems where players acquire a robotic partner capable of helping them in combat. They will fight and die with you and can also be the difference between life and death on the field. Players can build them up, make them stronger, and dismantle them to use the parts on other CTU's to make a stronger partner than before! These robots are here to help you and it's up to you on how you build them up!
Bounty Hounds Online brings the MMORPG genre into its own unique world unlike any other. Those familiar with the Playstation Portable prequel of the game may see a number of familiar faces in this online variant.
