About This Game

Empires, the award winning Source SDK game, combines the best of the first person shooter and real-time strategy genres. Fight as either the Northern Faction, remnants of the fallen nation of Jekotia, or as the imperial Brenodi Empire.

Empires features:

  • Four infantry classes - Prepare a surprise attack as the scout or take the enemy head-on as the rifleman. Drive back enemy tanks as the grenadier or support your team as the engineer. With four different infantry classes, each with customizable skills, you can create the perfect class to fit your playing style.
  • Squad-Based Teamwork - Players can organize themselves into highly-effective squads, overwhelming their opponents with superior tactics. Squad leaders can not only direct their respective members, but also use special squad powers such as reviving dead squad members or calling down an artillery strike on the enemy.
  • Vehicle Combat - Whether you're ferrying troops around the battlefield with the Armored Personnel Carrier or reigning fire upon your foes with the Artillery tank, Empires features a variety of vehicular combat. Choose from six different vehicle types, including three levels of tanks, and customize your weapons, armor, and engines.
  • Real-Time Strategy Commander - For those more inclined to RTS gameplay, you can play as the commander. Place buildings, build defensive turrets, construct vehicles, and conduct research on your way to leading your team to victory.
With 15 official maps and dozens more community-created ones, no two matches are ever the same. Empires brings FPS/RTS gameplay to a whole new level. Join up today and see what you've been missing.

The game looks rough around the edges, but it is a free to play game. But where aesthetics are not to par with other first person shooters, it makes up in playability and quality of game play. Everyone starts off equal in ability and rank, but the game rewards your performance. The more you play, the better you become, and thus you will be a better mmber of your team. Play the tutorial and do not be afraid to ask for help. Veteran players will go out of their way to help you maximize your experience in this game.

Very very fun game, decent graphics, the option to command or be commanded (Infantry).
Vehicles handle awesome!
Never encountered bugs yet, but I'll let minor ones slide since this is based off Source.

Please, PLEASE, in the name of all things good, revive this game's playerbase!!!!!!

Well, Empires is a REALLY old hl2 mod (it has like 10 years). The Game is a hybrid between FPS and RTS, it's like battlefield but with a commander(who gives the orders and build the things like Age Of empires or any other RTS).

+ Has various gamemodes.
+ Dedicated Playerbase
+ Helpful Community

-the Game requied A LOT of player responsability and teamwork (mostly the command)
-Learning Curve is elevated, expect to be smashed
-The player base is really small(expect play this game on weekends)
-This game has Frustrating and Annoying game mechanics. You can't sprint so much and the maps are REALLY big, you have to walk A LOT, Reviving and healing allies is a pain in the ♥♥♥, Driving vehicles it's just terrible.

I don't recommend this game because, I just feel that the game, even if with their 10 years it feels incomplete and Empty.
