What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We know that creating significant and meaningful on the eSport scene is no small task and this is why that we have involved the players community since the very beginning of the development (when there was no menu or options... Or texture )!
While there is still much to be done, we believe that our game is now ready to enter a new phase and we are ready to open our game to more through early access and use this opportunity to make it reach its full potential!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until we reach a level where we can confidently organize pro-caliber tournament!
We expect it to take somewhere between 6 months and 1 year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • Less gameplay & connexion bugs
  • Better performance optimisation
  • Better lag management
  • Team system
  • Ranked mode
  • New characters
  • New implants
  • Improved spectator mode
  • Voice acting for characters
  • Dedicated servers
  • As well as other choices based on choice from the community playing the game!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Core gameplay and meta-game are ALPHA. Fun is definitely there!
Still a lot of small bugs and visual polish to be done.
A few important features missing (team, rank, spectator mode).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

Arena: Cyber Evolution is FREE and will always remain so. :-)”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community is already actively part of Arena: Cyber Evolution since the very beginning (even when the game was so early it looked like an atari 2600 game). Here are a few initiatives already in place to interact with our players:
  • Daily design meeting on our Twitch channel (7PM ET every week day)
  • Open discussion about the design and development on our Steam forum
  • Our design documents are open and available for the community to see
  • Our entire development now archived on Youtube
  • Many people of our community take active part in the project (community management, QA, event organization, design, etc)
  • Supporters will get to vote for the next features we develop!

“The futuristic cyberpunk soccer game was the best new esport at PAX East”

“It could very well be the next big esport at competitions all across the globe”

“The communal aspect of Project Cyber is what revolutionizes this experience. Not only can you voice your opinion during the development process, you will also get the chance to change the match you’re watching by choosing an event”

About This Game

At Spearhead Games, we believe that e-sports are the next step in international competition. We believe that this growing trend is on the verge of becoming mainstream globally and will play a significant role in defining the future of sports.

Arena: Cyber Evolution is the result of our passion for this phenomenon and what it can become.
We know that creating a game that is significant and meaningful on the e-sport scene is no small task and this is why that we have involved the player community since the very beginning of the development, when there were no menus, options, or even textures!

Arena: Cyber Evolution (ACE) is a futuristic physics-based sports game in which players confront each other in 3 vs 3 matches of wits and twitch reflexes.
By featuring a MOBA-like champion logic, ACE brings an unprecedented twist to the sports genre by allowing players to choose from a variety of super-powered heroes and what style of gameplay they prefer to build their own team strategies.

Designed from the ground up around the mouse & keyboard, ACE was not envisioned only as a sport game, but really as a new sport.

ACE’s ultra-precise control scheme allows players to analogically manipulate the disk using simple mouse gestures.

Just like in real sports, this gameplay allows for super intuitive gameplay while proposing nearly infinite depth & skill cap.

  • An unique blend of action games, sports games and MOBA.
  • The closest experience to playing a traditional sport in a video game.
  • Dynamic physics-based gameplay that is both deep and accessible.
  • Innovative mouse gesture control allows for fluid and natural actions (passes, shots, intercepts and jukes).
  • Having all human players makes positioning meaningful and allow for infinite team strategies.
  • Several characters each with unique powers and play styles
  • Unlock implants (to improve and customize your characters), team boosts, upgrades, and special abilities.
  • Very fun to watch as a spectator - even without prior knowledge of the game.
  • New characters, implants, custom arenas, events, challenges, and much more coming soon! New updates regularly!

Arena: Cyber Evolution is free to play and we want it to stay this way forever. We believe that it should be at the core of any sport to be accessible for everyone to play and practice no matter what.
As an independent game studio, we however need some money to keep developing the game and improving it.

This is why we integrated monetization features in the game with the possibility to buy skins, hats and other customizations with real money (but never pay to win mechanics!). For us, this is a simple way to allow players who really enjoy and believe in the game to support its continued development by ‘’donating’’ and receiving rewards for it.

In addition to the items available in-game, the following great packages are available as DLC:

Supporters Pack DLC

Founders Pack DLC

Champions Pack DLC

Pillar Pack DLC

Early Access Review
Haven't played this game with my friend yet, but,
1. Bot AI is terrible. I'm sorry, I have to be this callous. Seriously.
40% of the time, my bot teammates are PASSING THE BALL TO THE ENEMY.
2. Slideshow on main menu is broken. First two slides are a solid, lime green colour.
3.PLEASE render it in 60fps.
5. My eyes are bleeding.

5/10 But I believe in improvement. This IS early access, after all.

Early Access Review
Ok, this game has taken way too much of my time and I don't regret it at all. This is the kind of game that keeps you going until dawn and makes you late for work. I simply love this game and I'm gonna tell you why.


- The gameplay is awesome, intuitive and rewarding. For new players, it may seem a little weird because it's so different to what we're used to. Once you start to get the hang of it, you can do a lot of different things like scoring goals with wall bounces, using different abilities to do crazy moves, develop strategies to fool the opposing teams, etc. The game is easy to pick up, but hard to master.

- The community is by far the most amazing community I've ever had the chance to be a part of. New players are welcomed and invited to games so they can learn and team up with other players to create an even better experience. Also, streams are regularly held on the official Hitbox channel of Spearhead Games and it's how we all get together to play a few/many matches. Events are also organised to give both a casual and competitive experience to the game's players.

- Speaking of competitive tournaments, this is the part that I love the most. Every weekend, competitive tournaments are held to see who are the top dogs of the A:CE community. This is where people come to play and give their 110% to get 1st place and win prizes. Also, you don't have to be an experienced player to compete in these events, you just have to sign up and maybe bring some friends with you as well. If you want to know more about these events, go to


- Lack of players. The game's not popular enough yet, so you can't really experience the game to its fullest potential at any time you want. A way to counter this negative point is to play when the stream is live so you can actually get in a game with actual people instead of getting queued up with bots.

- Bugs. The game is still in Early Access, so it's bound to have some. I think I speak for the whole community when I say we just live with it. They can be annoying sometimes but we just shrug it off.


The game is amazing and has a very competitive feel to it. It's still in development and needs more players but once you get hooked by the sound of the stream caster shouting your name as you score the game winning goal and every single member of the community goes WTF WHO IS THIS GUY I NEED HIM ON MY TEAM?!?!, you'll never want to stop playing.

1st impression of ACE.

Not the prettiest game in the world...But and its a big BUT this game has a lot of scope to be a clasic. Sure player numbers are low right now but thats not the games fault thats just marketing.

I spent ten solid hours in one sitting playing this and although few in number the guys who have played this for a while seem very nice. No noob abuse and when I pointed out that they were hard to match due to their upgrades every one of them dumpped their upgrades and went vanilla for me, can a noob ask for more.

I would suggest downloading this and spending a few hours playing.

Would i spend money on it in store? I dont know yet as I have a rule about spending on F2P games. If you can get everything via ingame cash that you can with $ and $ gives no advantage then ill pay but i have not played enough to assess this as of yet.

Overall first 10 hours I'd give 8/10. Lost marks explained below.

-1 :No in match chat or voip so for new guys or ppl with no 3rd party voip coodination may be an issue.

-1: Matchmaking at this time can put noobs in with tooled up vets making for some very unbalance play if the vets dont realise you are new or just dont care and keep their boosts active. ( this may be due to player numbers however so take this one with a pinch of salt)
