Rigs: Mechanized Combat League is a futuristic mech combat sports game being developed by Guerrilla Cambridge for PlayStation VR. We’ve played it and enjoyed it. It’s a solid multiplayer arena-based shooter. But there’s more to it than that, the developer said in a new gameplay trailer today.

When Rigs hits PlayStation VR on Oct. 13, it will also come with an offline, single-player component, Career Mode. The single-player mode will let players team up with AI-controlled pilots and "rise through the leagues as you defeat other teams, earn fame and fortune, and gain access to new Rigs and pilots," Guerrilla Games producer Samrat Sharma wrote on the PlayStation Blog.

In addition to Career Mode, Rigs will also feature three-versus-three online multiplayer, in which players can team up with other PlayStation 4 players or with AI-controlled pilots.

Rigs: Mechanized Combat League is a PlayStation VR launch title. For more on the game, read Polygon’s hands-on preview of the game from E3 2015.
