About the 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!

*sigh* This game used to be so good...

Before Jagex took the reigns of Ace of Spades, it used to be a fun, minecraft-esque shooter that grabbed the best elements out of both the games/genres, but then Jagex took over, after messing around with the fundamental aspects of the game, Jagex introduced paid DLC and reduced the amoutnt of servers until there was but 1 Australian server. This has since been increased to about 13 but the servers are hosted overseas, leaving them with so much ping they are near unplayable.

This game /used/ to be good, but since Jagex took over, it turned into a pile of ♥♥♥♥.

Thanks Jagex.

I really enjoyed this game, until they recently decided to focus on rewarding bad behaviour. They now encourage griefing and abuse, providing achievements for such actions. Do not buy Jagex products until they reconsider this ill advised approach. I've uninstalled my copy. I'll check out Guncraft in hopes it has taken a better approach.

An unbelievable amount of extra time had to be put in to even make this game playable. After years of playing Runescape, I should have seen that this was a Jagex game and that would have made me not waste my money on it. JAGEX IS BAD. There's nothing else to it. Jagex can't host good servers. This type of a game is unfinished and has many flaws (easy spawn camping, constant lag spikes, ability to teamkill whenever you want, etc.) It is a good concept, but Jagex lacks the proper knowledge on how to initiate such a game. I wish this was made by someone else.

really unbalanced and lacking in teamwork.
It was decently fun intill jagex took over and took away most of the weapons (yet they kept the overpowered as heck double barreled shotgun) and nerfed the marksman by giving him a huge "please shoot me" laser sight.
I was very hopeful for this game as It was a fun idea but unfortunently very badly implemented.

I loved the original. My friends and I had tons of fun playing the original (FYI can still be played online if you look hard enough.) When I heard Jagex... JAGEX! bought the rights off the original dev, I was worried. And then I see what they did to the game, i just couldn't believe it.They ruined the fun tactical gameplay we used to have, and replaced it with this piece of crap. They put in jetpacks and miniguns and made it this generic over the top game, ruining the whole concept of the original. Don't even look at this game, or any game developed by Jagex.

EDIT: I would also like to say there are not as many lag issues now as there were at launch, and votekick has been improved. It's sad how they took so long to fix these issues.

EDIT 2: They added a 'classic' mode aswell. It is similar to the original beta, but still not as fun. No one plays it, and the amazing maps and large scale battles are not to be found here. It's a nice addition, but is still not worth buying if you were looking for something even remotely similar to what the original offered.
