Rockman X DiVE, now with the official international name of Mega Man X DiVE, has announced updates for its upcoming closed beta test event this end of August. Among the new information revealed, are details of its PvP system.
Mega Man X DiVE will be directly implemented with PvP mechanics that preserve all gameplay elements of the Mega Man X series. As you can see from the trailer, its an all-out battle royale with charged shots, multi-jumps, dashes, slashes, as well as, a dazzling array of new and old special weapons.
Being that it is a mobile game, there might be a few balance-related concerns for such versus system built directly from what originally was a platforming system. However, given that mostly PvE action mobile titles such as Honkai Impact eventually got implemented with PvP mechanics, and since this is Capcom Taiwan, we should at least give its developers the benefit of the doubt of its potential fun factor.
On a less competitive note, Mega Man X DiVE tweaks the classic ability acquisition from robot masters with the Chip system. While players would still get new skills from defeated enemies, it would be in the form of a chip that requires to be equipped in order to use that specific skill.
Take note that the term used was “enemies”, specifically referring to mini-bosses and similar types of heavier reploid foes that are not classified as robot masters. Since we already have a huge number of such major stage enemies from throughout all the Mega Man X titles, players should have lots more skills for players to work their Maverick Hunters with using the Chip system.
Last but not least, it has always been the tactical default modus of the Maverick Hunters to provide navigators for their field agents. In Mega Man X DiVE, things are no different with the introduction of the cute, blue-haired reploid assistant RiCO.
There are no specific details as to how much will she be implemented in the game’s interface and access menus. Though, she would most likely give a helping hand to newer details that players might not be familiar with this upcoming mobile game.
As announced before, the CBT for Mega Man X DiVE is slated this coming August 23rd. You can register for the event at its official recruitment page, but keep your fingers crossed for that confirmation email.
