Consoles Official Launch

HMM is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it is Cross-Play enabled, which allows players from PC to play with other players from PS4 and Xbox.

Learn more about the Cross-Play in this article.

Gameplay updates
  • The “Out-of-Combat” effect (automatic repair after some time away from combat) has been removed from the game.
  • Scoring an “own goal” is no longer possible when your Team is carrying the Bomb next to the score line. If the player holding the Bomb lets it loose, it might touch the score line and score a point against your Team.
  • The “Temple of Sacrifice” and “Legacy: Temple of Sacrifice” Arenas have been removed from the game. Both Arenas will return in the future.


New Feature: Repair Charges
  • Now that the Out-of-Combat repair is no longer available, the only way to get self-repaired is using the Repair Charges.
  • These charges are spread throughout the Arenas, in specific locations. Upon driving over them, the Machine will start self-repairing 100 HP per second, up to full HP.
  • If you take any damage while the self-repair is active, whether being hit by an enemy or even touching a hazard such as lava or acid, the self-repair will be halted.
  • If two allies (or more) activate a Repair Charge simultaneously, both will activate it.
  • A Repair Charge can only be reactivated when the Machine leaves its area. Standing on top of the charge won’t make it available again.
  • The minimaps have been updated with the Repair Charges’ locations.


Arenas updates
  • The Metal God and Cursed Necropolis Arenas have been updated with the Repair Charges. This feature adds a few spots and new areas that can be used freely.


Ranked Mode
  • The current season ends on February 22nd when the maintenance starts.
  • Players eligible to receive rewards will receive them on a future date, to be announced.
  • When the new Ranked Mode season starts, all players will be set to Bronze I division. Also, the Ranking points and MMR will reset.
  • We’ve decided to proceed this way to make sure that all players from all platforms will face similar conditions to progress in the Ranked Mode.
  • The Ranked Mode will be available 24h a day starting from February 23rd.


New Feature: Report System
  • The purpose of this feature is to provide players with the ability to report other players that violate our Rules of Conduct.
  • During matches, players can open the Options Menu and then choose “Mute/Report Player”. A new window will appear, with options to Mute specific players, or create a report about the situation.
  • Reports will be analyzed by HMM’s Community Team, and appropriate measures will be applied, according to the Rules of Conduct.
