Introducing the Hurt + Heal DLC Pack



It's time to upgrade your options with this Hurt + Heal DLC pack for Ace of Spades: Battle Builder. Adding 2 brand new classes of hero, as well as new weapon load-out options for all other classes, you can really add some punch to your creative shooting.

TWO NEW CHARACTER CLASSES
  • The Specialist: A run-and-gun mercenary with a shady past, this contract killer is not to be messed with. Get in quick, eliminate the enemy then get out even quicker. The Specialist's Fully Automatic Shotgun is the opposite of stealthy, and his Grenade Launcher really brings the thunder. Sticky Grenades and Chemical Bombs complete this highly toxic weapons arsenal.

  • The Medic: Heal up yourself and your team with a powerful Med Pack. Don't make the mistake of thinking the Medic is an unarmed nurse though - this battlefield doctor knows how to soldier their way out of trouble with a high-fire-rate LMG and tough Riot Shield to absorb damage.

NEW WEAPONS FOR EXISTING CLASSES
  • Commando: NEW Assault Rifle
  • Marksman: NEW Automatic Pistol
  • Engineer: NEW Mine Launcher
  • Miner: NEW Blocksucker

Get the pack and get in game to Hurt & Heal!

Game Updated - New Equipment!



New Weapons
Brand new equipment options for the original 4 classes!

Commando



Parachute – Love rocket jumping? Hate the fall damage? Always dreamt of gracefully flying through the sky? Then suit up with this top-of-the-range parachute & make your enemies fear the air above!

Press SPACE again after jumping to open the Parachute.


Marksman



Radar Station – Do you find yourself looking down scope and finding no one? With the Radar Station even the loneliest Marksman can meet new people. Simple drop one of these little gems for a short duration of global map visibility.


Engineer



Disguise – Taking camouflage to a new extreme – be the block, wear the block, you are the block!


Miner



C4 – Timing not your strong suit? Pick the C4 (complete with detonator) for precise demolition & have a blast!


Balancing Changes
  • [Marksman] Increased the ‘aim down sights’ time for Bolt Action Rifle

Bug Fixes
  • It is no longer possible to place floating light blocks on the map so as to make you largely untouchable.
  • Fixed a graphical bug where entities (e.g. ammo crates) would turn grey if there were any falling blocks.
  • Spectators are no longer able to kick remaining players.
  • An issue with privacy settings in lobbies not carrying over to game has been fixed. Players can no longer join your game once the session has started and is set to ‘Invite’, for example.
  • Fixed crashes on Player Profile UI screen.
  • Steam Workshop: Subscribed maps are now only re-downloaded if the client's version is out-of-date.

Performance
  • Various performance optimisations have been made.

Localisation
  • Typographical corrections made across existing localised languages.

About This Game

Say hello to the creative shooter. Ace of Spades: Battle Builder is the first-person shooter that lets you create your battleground, destroy it, then create it again. Up to 32 players choose from seven unique classes and jump into team-based, multiplayer mayhem across an endlessly evolving battlefield, to construct, destruct and take out the opposition.

Key Features

  • CONSTRUCTION, COMBAT AND CREATIVITY - Complete strategic and creative freedom is at your disposal to annihilate the enemy however you like.
  • MULTIPLAYER MAP CREATION - Ace of Spades: Battle Builder includes a map creator mode, which allows you to collaborate with up to 23 friends and make your very own Ace of Spades battleground! Custom tools and over 400 prefabricated structures will help you build the ultimate multiplayer maps, which you can upload and share via Steam Workshop.
  • CUSTOM GAME MODES - Play the way YOU want to play! Host your own match or create your own mode using the wide selection of settings available to you. From fine tuning your favourite mode & classes, to turning TDM into a Spade-only grudge match with predefined teams, as a lobby host you can:
  • Set your lobby to invite only, friends, or open, and also have full control over who joins with the host ‘kick’ function
  • Sort players into specific teams – great for clan matches, or for playing on the same team as your friends
  • Choose the map you want to play, official or player made
  • Set the size of the match, and it’s duration
  • Set up vanilla game modes or tweak them to suit by using an extensive set of customisable game rules

    Tons Of Insane Game Modes

    • Team Deathmatch - The Grandaddy of them all. Kill the enemy; try not to die doing it.
    • Zombie Mode - Survive the onslaught of the living dead. Failing that, join them.
    • Classic CTF – Back to basics, one class, one loadout, the classic rifle. You know what to do.
    • Capture the Flag – No FPS is complete without CTF. Protect your flag, take the enemies’.
    • Demolition - Demolish the enemy’s base before your own is decimated.
    • Diamond Mine - Dig up precious diamonds & defend the diamond carrier as they attempt to cash in their discovery at your team’s base for points.
    • Occupation - A game mode that pits offence against defence. The defensive team must protect their teams based in the green occupied area of the map while the attacking Blue team try to destroy the enemy position by successfully detonating bombs.
    • VIP – Play in 1930’s era Chicago or LA’s Alcatraz and protect your mob boss from the opposing Mafioso.
    • Territory Control - Claim key tactical areas of the map for your team, gain a majority territory control of the map to win, or even better go for glory and take over the entire map!

This might suprise a lot of people, for some reason, but this is a genuinley good game. I know you might say "It sucks, there's never anyone online" but, is that the game's fault, not really, this game was kind of a big deal back in like 2014, before the trolls got into the review section, making everyone turn away. I support this company heavily, they made a great game, but in the inevitable backfire, get trolls and little angry kids saying its too much like minecraft. Even if you dont like the game, just support them at least, its the best you can do. In conclusion, this game is great (besides the lack of players on multiplayer, but that can be fixed) and you should support the developers.

Update: Ive been reading the reviews a lot and people have been making some good points. This game's original is on a website somewhere, and this game isnt really worked on that much. I still recommend that you at least try this game out, but if your just interested in the original, here it is: Buildandshoot.com/

Ace Of Spades was really stressfull to play. And its sad to know the game is almost impossible to fix. The whole concept of Ace Of Spades is that everything can be destroyed. EVERYTHING. That means spawns, whole monuments, and even the ground. You could fix the spawn thing by adding random spawns based on destruction near spawn and enemies close to spawning point. Oh and by the way the class selection is way unbalanced. I swear 60% of players are marksmen. Why? Because the marksman is over powered. One shot kills with 100% accuracy scoped if you put the crosshair on the enemy. And the commando's rockets dig way too deep and are too powered with damage. And no one plays builder NO-ONE.
I could ramble on and on why this game is bad but i think this is enough. So its a game that cannot be fixed. So who the **** decided the guys who created Runescape make a good fps games. Tell you what i did. But they did not. Im not mad just dissapointed. Jk Jk im mad.

I'll fix that.

The original free version build and shoot or openspades are both much better. I played a few hours thinking I might have fun, but no, a few hackers and this being completely different than the original makes it real not worth your money.

At best, 3/10.

This game is but a shell of the original free-to-play Ace of Spades. This game was bought out by Jagex and ruined, similar to their other title Runescape. I regret my purchase of this game considering servers are dead, but when servers were active enough to find a game it was interesting playing this coming from the old version. Some of the new additions when this came out were fun but with the recent updates the game has turned to unplayable trash. The new class system Jagex implemented is awful with unbalanced weapons and poor character design. If you'd like to play the game how it used to be, search Google for OpenSpades, a well refined version of the classic that is being kept alive by fans and still has tons of active players and servers as well as graphical improvements over the Steam version.

An FPS that involves building and shooting, unfortunately that is it's greatest offer since the playerbase is now rather small and the gameplay can get boring rather quickly.
