Overview

Rising Thunder was a fighting game for the PC that focused on strategy over execution. Rather than requiring players to learn relatively complex controller motions to perform special attacks, those attacks were mapped directly to buttons and, in some cases, had cooldowns associated with them to limit their use.

Rising Thunder was announced in July 2015 and a technical alpha was scheduled for that same month. The game was set to be released as a free-to-play title, with microtransactions for cosmetic items planned to support the game financially.

The game featured mechs.

Development on Rising Thunder was halted on March 8, 2016 after developer Radiant was acquired by Riot Games and the team supporting the game moved on to new projects.
