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!

The only servers that seem to run these days are classic CTF and Zombie! gamemodes, usually only one for each as the playerbase is practically dead (on Europe anyway).

Probably not worth buying at this point unless you can get it super cheap in a sale, but it's a good time-waster for 10-15 minute bursts.

Was very fun when it initially came out but now multiplayer (which is the whole game) is dead unless you like sprinting around empty maps by yourself or like connecting to severs overseas to find a server at least half full.

So getting down to business a very few amount of people are playing this game currently and its in my personnal opinion only fun when playing with others since the gameplay isn't that competitive. It is a great game on a lot of points with some cool features but with no one to play against its not really Something to recommend people to buy. Of course this can change im not sure it ever will but what do i know :D. it does have a few achievements that are a little rare thats soloable and easy to get which pretty much the only reason i see for buying this game unless it becomes popular again.
A good game but its not played anymore and it gives problems playing multiplayer alone.

Bought the first DLC when it came out, then Jagex decided to give it to everybody who owned the game. And now they release a NEW DLC, without giving the old purchasers it for free? Screw this game.

I had fun from this game, but since I upgraded to windows 10 every resolution above 800*600 ♥♥♥♥s up the screen. It have been 2 years now and there is still no fix nor they even respond to me, so now they are getting bad review.
