About This Game

XAM is a free-to-play online arena where players fight in short, intensive real-time fights. The player has to take over the control of one of мех agents with its unique weapon and abilities.

Easy to begin, hard to master – ХАМ is the online entertaining game both for casual and hardcore gamers.
In this game only your personal skills and team spirit matter for your victory, and no random events will steal your victory!

Lots of mechagents synergize in different ways, different cards and game modes require various tactics, and good team work is essential for victory.

  • XAM – is the real-time multi-player online 3D action arena.
  • Short-time PvP fights guarantee you will not get stuck in a boring game!
  • There are only you and your opponents skirmishing. You don’t have to farm for ages or donate much to be competitive.
  • Select your character from a wide array of mechagents and start playing! Any agent gives you a unique play experience!
  • Sci-fi setting with its own heroes and history makes the XAM’s world absolutely real!
  • Two languages available for you: Russian and English.

  • 3D panoramic views
  • Basic mode - Team Death Match (TDM) is a real-time fight of two teams, 3 players in each team.
  • An Internet connection is required.
  • A player is free to select any character: tank, support or fighter.
  • Each hero has a unique gameplay and six abilities (including ultimate skill).

  • The majority of skills include mechanics of a shot and a bullet’s flight time. Shots could be and should be dodged, so the result of each ability depends on individual skill.
  • WASD movement, ground-targeted abilities.
  • It’s a team game with your friends or random players.
  • Implants system allows fine-tuning of mechagents.

There are three hero classes: Tank, Fighter and Support.

All three classes have standardized abilities:
  • A1-autoattack (M1),
  • A2-alternative action (M2),
  • A3- an ability to move (SP),
  • A4 – АОЕ/multiple-target attack (Q),
  • А5- protective ability (E),
  • А6-ultimative ability (R).

A1 ability could be a melee attack or ranged shot independently of a class.
But as you know every rule has its own exceptions ;)

The classes differ very much from each other by health points, movement speed, effects of abilities, etc. Each hero has their own unique and diverse gameplay, so that a player is a free to choose what they like.

Galactic Federation’s development and XAM show origin

For about three hundred years mankind made a huge breakthrough. From a planet torn apart by national wars dipped in an economic and energy crisis it evolved to the Galactic Federation integrating a lot of planets and star systems in common strive for better life.

Science fast- growing development allowed people to forget about carbon wars having presented people an inexhaustible power source instead. Development of robots technology relieved people from regular physical work because on the majority of factories and plants people were replaced by robots. People hold the administrative positions and devote themselves to creativity and scientific researches.

Uniting of a mankind happened at an economical level. In three hundred years a market has been divided between several corporations., these corporations organically divide The Galaxy into zones of influence and at the same time integrate it together. the distance between its parts has been longer, and moreover for the last hundred years the quantity of populated planets sharply increased from four up to several tens. At this time the mass media has been developing fast. People have been separated from each other by many hundreds light years and therfore they are in great need in communication with each other. Now this function is operated by thousands newsfeeds gathering the information from all corners of the Universe and creating unified information field. Each corporation owns the powerful media machine of hundreds and thousands news agencies, video channels and publishing houses. Nevertheless, the distance still separates people and it causes some problems.
With time the corporations understand that they need to develop common media product to reach all people and unite them in the result. They employ group of producers to find the right idea for their global project.

Shortly before the show was started the Galaxy had been struck with a terrible event, and it was a lesson to all Galaxy’s mankind. Two corporations completely destroyed a planet that they wanted to take over soon. That time everyone knew about this war and saw the consequences of it. People followed headline news and many eyewitnesses’ video blogs that became very popular at that time. That fact pushed the producers to create something new from the past, so they took the idea which is based on former military operations. In several years after the end of this war there was a movie telling story of the fighter of underground robot fights. The mankind found out that the military developed remotely controlled fighting vehicles long time ago. Moreover, there are underground communities organizing robots’ fights on deserted military bases. the producers quickly picked up this idea and started to develop their project. So XAM show was produced, and Xenon planet was chosen as a main fighting arena.

The organization of the show

The show takes place on a recently discovered planet. Show’s content are real fights between robots that are remotely controlled by players. Audience stakes on and supports their favorites, and participants of the show fight for ratings and sympathies of audience. A participant cannot get its own robot; instead they can obtain the license for usage one of the models in fight. The robots are set up directly on a planet therefore the details can be easily and quickly replaced any time even if a robot has been severely damaged. Thus, once having acquired the license for usage a certain model a player can't lose it.

Distinctive feature of the show is usage for robots well-known, recognizable prototypes, for example, celebrities, national heroes and even the criminals. This peculiarity attracts the wide audience including potential participants.There are thousands arenas have been constructed on the planet and the new ones are being built at this time.
Due to growth of popularity of the show and inflow of new players new scenery types are being continuously created, new places and plots of fights are constantly offered to players, opportunities also have been increased: you can fight against an animal living on the planet or brought from other planets. New types of robots are developed often in advertising purposes only. Who knows to what extend the imagination and fantasy of creators can lead!

In some places of Xenon there are several bases of corporations located. In huge hangars located generally underground are stored bio-robots. The endless ranks of them are extended on many kilometers. When a player selects one of fighters then it is immediately transferred on the surface to a certain fight place. Also in underground hangars strong predators are kept to fight show participants! Usually against the players the animals living on Xenon are pushed out to have a fight. But popularity of the show and idea to diversify it led to that the producers began to bring the animals from other planets, and sometimes even criminals sentenced for capital punishment.

Participation in show: what for?

The mankind has occupied some planets and widely extended on space. In such a crowd it is difficult to be become well- known. A lucky chance for many to become popular, get national love and currency was an involvement in TV shows.
People gather for XAM casting in huge queues – many of them want to get a chance to become famous and earn money!

The player starts fighting with a bio robot with minimum skills. Everyone is free to pay chip implantation independently and often people say no themselves in many things just to enter the game. Any organization can pay chip implantation for you, for example, it can be a security service or a community of scientists, businessmen who are interested to have an agent that can move to Xenon and start earning currency for them. Each participant of the show tries to win as much as possible so that the corporations choose him and raised his sale price. Also each participant tries to become one of the favorites of the show.

At the same time there are many fights and researches on the planet that are broadcasted on all Galaxy. But only the most spectacular fights, in which the most popular fighters participate, get on tops and are widely broadcasted.Certainly each player wants to become a popular and to be loved by everyone, so this fact pushes many of them to participate in game without any breaks ever!

Players are at a space station. For them special inhabited cabins are alloted. Players are on full support of organizers of the show. Each player can get certain services depending on his rating, achievements in game and the currency earned on the show. Thus, players compete not only for national appreciation, but also for material benefits they can achieve. However, many players are so keen on process that they refuse privileges and prefer to spend their bonuses for new implants and new biorobots.

  • PvE Co-op mode ( monsters, scenarios)
  • New PvP mods
  • Implant system
  • League system (ranked fights mode)
  • More heroes
  • More arenas
  • Achievements
  • AI bots, training and team modes

I liked the first impression on this game but sadly everytime I was looking into it, there were way to few players...

even worse is the current situation.
Servers seems to be offline, Login is failing for days.
And as far as I've seen, there is no official statement (yet) about it...

Since the last Post was something like "we're running out of funds" ....

So, I really hope they'll get back to it,
but for the Moment - consider this Game as "unplayable and possibly dead".

sry :(

Wouldn't know what this game is like. Only 5 people play it.
Maybe they seriously need to include SOLO ONLY play.
Actually gains some numbers before forcing 4-6 player maps.

I really liked the game, but there are still a few issues to be noticed:
- Balancing. Set a cooldown on Zerotaurs right-mouse button, he is too overpowered.
- Do something against AFK-ers please, this is a big issue.
- Queue timers are way too long and a lot doesn't work yet (but this is obviously something that will dissappear).
But generally a good game with opportunities to have skill and to have positioning. Please keep up making the maps interesting with things like health relics and the energy boosts. Keep it up!

Okay, I'll be honest, there wasn't much to keep me playing the game right now, but it's definetely a game that I'll keep my eyes on.

Gameplay wise, it is basically a sci-fi version of Bloodline Champions, which is not a bad thing because BLC is/was an amazing game. Once it is more feature complete I'm sure it will be a great game, but for the time being there isn't much content and it is somewhat buggy. I say give it a few months,

So uh, this game.... With the current NA playerbase you might get a full game. MIGHT. Crashing happens for all different reasons, most notably is when I accidentally press anything other than RMB/LMB on my mouse. Gameplay is slow,

Early Access Review
Think what would happen if a MOBA and a 3rd person shooter had kids, and it rocked.

Anyone love playing arena in League and Smite, or just killing each other in DOTA without the interference of minions or side objectives? This might be the game for you. The set up is an open map where you and your friends just go at each other for the kill, and its all skillshots. You don’t have to worry about auto locked attack that hit you across the map and kill you.(I’m looking at you Karthus), but you do have to move and think.

The controls are what I would say are a mix of fps and MOBA. if you are willing to take a few seconds to learn them then its really quick to pick up on. Though it does at times go against your better nature.

obviously if you don't like MOBA's or the top down feel you might not like this game. Also If you go into this thinking its a simple mindless top down shooter you won't last long. You could say that it is, and treat it that way. However, that's only a small part of the gameplay, and you won't last that long. You have to learn the character you're playing and figure out how best to use their power.

For example. I like the sub zero clone. ( I know that may seem harsh but its true, and i love this game for it.) he is quick and has the ability to move in hit you and move out. i found that i should never be still with him. Hes not weak per say but hes not the strongest either. He has an ability to slide in and hit his opponent then smack them around for a bit and slide on out. but that won't work on every enemy. then female sniper can hit well past his slide distance. So for her I try to go all in.

you also have to learn to skillshot. for those of you that don't know what that means. It means you have to aim at your opponent and interpret their movement in order to hit them. This is not COD or MW. you can't just shoot at someone first to win. like i said. learn your skills, how your opponent plays, and figure out how to best move to counter them.

the mechanics are well thought out and i think this game has a bright future... if more people play that is. This game isn't the next LOL or DOTA, and not all of the features are finished yet. i would like an in game friends list so i could play with close pals online. or the ability to make a private room. hopefully its on the way. However, it has its own sub genre niche that it can definitely fit into. Purely arena i suppose. I'm looking forward to when we can have 3 to 5 people going at it on each team.

Early Access Review
I was kinda sceptical about this game after I saw its introducing video and read through other players' reviews, but the game was free and I decided to try it out. The game is very unfinished and needs a lot of stuff to be done before it actually could be considered a full high quality game. I liked about XAM that every game has a fixed duration, and that even if one of youe teammates leaves a game you still have a pretty good chance to win it (if you are good enough ;)). I also liked its matchmaking system: it's simple and does not require you to read through tones of rules and directions.

Честно говоря, поначалу Я скептически отнёся к XAM. Вступительное видео и все эти доводы, мол: "В нашей игре не надо думать, только лишь жмякать на кнопки в подходящее время" составили в моём воображении весьма удручающую картину. Однако я скачал её (халява-мама :) ), загрузил и увидел, что она находится в весьма ранней стадии разработки, но уже даже на этой ступеньке играть в неё интересно. Мне понравилось фиксированное время матчей и то, что даже если один из твоих тиммэйтов покинул игру, это ещё ничего не значит, и даже вдвоём хорошие игроки могут выиграть матч без особого труда.

Так держать, не бросайте начатое и развивайте проект! Удачи!

Really good game. The only problem is that there is nobody online. There are some problems with connection but I myself havent experienced anything.

A tip:

Since there are not so many people online you could maybe just for the early acces implement a FFA

This game looked like a BLC clone to me, so I decided to check it out. It's basically the same...okay, it's exactly the same. Champions WASD move, you have to aim every ability, DPS and Heals alike. Plenty of opportunity to outplay and counterplay, really helps if you have a coordinated team/experienced players. All in all, it's tough and skill based, fast and fun.

If you liked Blood Line Champions, you'll like this game too.

Just needs more people online!

Awesome game, very dynamic, great graphics and pretty fun for an alpha version, there is a lot to be done yet.

I have not found bugs or problems besides the fact it needs players, it has only online mode, a minimum of 6 players for a round, and the time i experiment the game, it was a bit hard to find 6 players!
