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!

Jagex CEO: C'mon everyone! We need ideas!
Worker #1: We could buy another game and stuff it up.
Jagex CEO: That's a great idea. Any others?
Worker #2: We could actually make a good game.
*Everyone in room throws Worker #2 out the window#
Jagex CEO: I like the idea of stuffing another game up. Any suggestions as to what game?
Worker #3: We should buy Ace of Spades. It has a big fanbase.
Jagex CEO: Let's do it!

*Game gets worse from hereon in*

Back in 2012 there was an amazing free indie shooter called ace of spades, it was verry simple, there was 3 weapons 1 block with about 50 colors and more fun than can be put into words.

Now we call that game "Ace of Spades Classic" seeing as this game has come out. But with the launch of this new Ace of Spades came the closing of classic, now Ace fans where forced to either buy this, or never play again.

The problem is, this game isn't the same as classic Ace, now you might be saying "Oh of course it isn't! It's new and improved!" the thing is, it's really not. The game is poorly optimized where as classic could run on a potatoe, this left out a large chunk of the original playerbase. The game also has a much diferen't weapon balance and it includes classes, it really doesn't feel like the glory that classic was.

But now, the amazing Ace of Spades community has started a project, a free game on gamejolt called OpenSpades.

Open spades is almost exactly like classic and honestly better! The sad thing is that this free game is what most classic players imagined Battle Builder would be like, where as this game is $15, OpenSpades is comepletely free!

The game was amazingly fun and it was my first steam game personally, loved it, played it to death, but then jagex came along and was like "lol minecwaft" and decided to try and play of the popularity of that game and call of duty also, you know those fanbases, the little "i f**ked your mom last night!" type kids came in and ruined it, used to be awesome, jagex screwed it up.
