What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Robocraft has been built with a dedicated community of Robocrafters from the very beginning. It's first release was in April 2013 and had no multiplayer and no combat. From that point and to now the game has grown to it's full MMO state and whilst we still call it a 'Live Alpha' you will find it a very polished and fully featured experience.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to remain in Early Access for at least the next 6 months after it's initial release on Steam. This way the Steam community can help to shape the game as the rest of the Robocraft community has so far.”

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

“When Clan Battles, Tournaments, Megabots (players as bosses in Boss Battles vs. other users), plus integration of Steam Leaderboards and Steam Achievements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We call it 'Early Alpha' but we expect you to find it as polished and fully featured as most 'Beta' releases.”

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

“No, Robocraft will always be Free-to-play and our prices won't change as a result of shifting from Early Access to a full release in future.”

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

“Freejam (the developer of Robocraft) has community in it's blood. The work Freejam is a combination of 'Free' and 'Jam' where 'Free' shows our dedication to keeping Robocraft always Free and 'Jam' stands for 'Jamming'. We like to think of Robocraft as a game that has been built from the ground up with the community and 'Jamming' with the community is ingrained in everything we do.”

This Week!

July 29th, 2014

This weeks update includes some cool new goodies and some significant changes to the game so we wanted to let you all know what’s coming.



NEW MARS MAP #3 - THARSIS RIFT

- Tons of height play, high vantage points

- Tall mountain network providing cover and tactical gameplay for agile fliers

- Undercover rock formations, some cover from bombers

- Several ‘pinch points’ for tough fighting encounters

NO MORE ‘Early Access’

- We are dropping the concept of ‘Early Access’ for Premium users on new cube types

- Although it did raise extra revenue, we felt it reduced some of the excitement surrounding the release of cubes

ALIGNMENT RECTIFIER aka “The Flipper”

- New cube type

- Automatically activates when you are stuck, or upside down

- Hold ‘F’ to charge when ‘Active’ and release ‘F’ to fire

- ‘Firing’ releases an impulse force applied to your Robot with jumps you in the air, moves you backwards, and flips you back on your wheels

- Hold ‘F’ for longer to increase the force

NEW AEROFOIL CUBE aka “RUDDER”

- Steep swept back wings

- Smaller, for use as rudders

- Less ‘lift’ but more ‘flap’ force

- The look really cool too

NEW DAMAGE MODEL

- Previously damage was first destroyed the cube you hit and the remaining damage passed to that cubes neighbors

- But, if the damage went down a ‘dead end’ it would be lost

- This meant that Rails and Plasma cannons would provide inconsistent results, sometimes doing mega damage and on other occasions seeming to do very little damage

- We’ve changed the damage model so that the damage is no longer lost on dead ends and now continues until all damage is dissipated

- We have re-balanced the weapons to account for the extra damage the new model will cause

- This change should also bring ground based Plasma and Rail back into contention at high Tier

TIERS 1-5 ARE ‘TRAINING’, TIER 6 IS THE ‘REAL DEAL’

- We feel that Robocraft’s biggest assets are the different cubes types

- Until now all cube types have been available at Tier 1, Rail, Plasma, Aerofoils, everything

- This has led to users getting almost the entire experience of the game within the first few hours

- It has also led to some users being overwhelmed with the complexity of the cubes and the Tech Tree at the beginning

- So we’re going to stagger the introduction of new cubes to the game as follows:

T1 = SMG, Wheels, Armor, Radar, Alignment Rectifier

T2 = Hoverblades, Thrusters

T3 = Plasma, Electroplates, Jammers

T4 = Helium, Rails

T5 = Aerofoils, Rudders

- This is an experiment to see if new users play Robocraft for longer by unlocking new existing ‘toys’ to play with as they progress

- Lower levels of these cubes will be removed from the Tech Tree so inaccessible from this launch onwards

- Older users who already have these cubes in their inventory will be able to continue to use them

- We may discontinue them at some point in the future, depending on how the experiment goes

- We’re planning to start qualification for the Robo-leagues at T6 onwards, so all combat cube types will always be accessible at T6

- Consider T1-5 ‘training’ and T6+ the ‘Real Deal’

NEW LOBBY

- All users split into separate Lobby’s by Tier

- This will ensure that all Tiers close to each other are in the same lobby

- This should reduce queue times significantly, especially at high tier

- It should also ensure matches are always full and match-making is more fair

- All users online and waiting in the queue across all lobby’s will be amalgamated into a single Lobby UI screen

OTHER CHANGES COMING WITH THIS NEXT LAUNCH

- New ‘Maintenance Mode’ system, this will allow us to bring the game up from a new update more ‘carefully’, allowing us to ensure that all servers are connected and ready to launch battles as soon as you get in after the update

- TP awarded for Assists

- Cube TP costs re-balanced to compensate for all the recent changes and new TP rewards

- Pressing TAB is now the same as pressing ‘E’ so brings up the Battle Menu

- Mouse Wheel now zooms in the Tech Tree screen

- Switching between the Cube Inventory and Cube Depot screens retains the Category you had selected

- Removed a long delay when launching a battle from the mothership so you enter more quickly

- You can enter battle when a repair has started, no need to wait for the repair animation

- BUG FIX: Rail SFX fixed

- BUG FIX; Rail reload time hack prevention, authenticated server side, users hacking this will be auto-kicked

- BUG FIX: TP rewards bugged, so rewarding too many

Balance Update - Now Live!

July 26th, 2014

Responding to feedback received from our awesome community of Robocrafters we've made a few balance changes in the last hour which are now live - login again to be sure to get the full changes straight away, but no download update is required.

Changes are as follows:

- Max CPU values changed so that 1500 CPU Robots made with all Free cubes do not push up into T4
- Larger Robots are allowed in lower Tiers
- Tiers 1-3 still have some 'max CPU' limits, but those limits have been raised
- T1 max CPU is 750, T2 is 1000 and T3 is 1250, all other Tiers have no max CPU
- Electroplates shield strength buffed by 25%

Please keep giving us your feedback, we love it all, good or bad.

saw someone in a penis car with cannons.

*edit* Since people keep ♥♥♥♥♥ing that this isnt a "real" review here it is RoboCraft is easily one of the most fun free to play games on steam. If you like building cool stuff and Ruining other people ships that they spent hours perfecting only to be picked out of the sky with afew well placed shots this is your game. 10/10

First impressions:

(optional let's play footage)
http://youtu.be/UiQJ5ZGFJlM
I played Robocraft for just under half an hour until I started having trouble connecting to the server and was no longer able to play. I think it’s probably overloaded because of the popularity.

For an alpha the presentation is pretty good. Main menu area looks good. Sounds alright and has decent menu music.

You pilot pre-made or modified robot vehicles. Or build them from scratch piece by piece. You have a selection of different types of chassis blocks i.e. heavy armour or light, propulsion e.g. (hover or wheels, rear wheel drive or front wheel drive etc.), weapons and so on. You make your robot in any shape or configuration you want. You can make a heavy tank, a gunship with long range or short range weapons. Online matches appear to be a team deathmatch.

The typical players robot isn't very pretty but I think this game has a lot of potential for some really cool designs. And because of the apparently huge amount of customisation a large amount of variety to gameplay.

In the short time that I played I basically thought the game was awesome from the start. I've been avoiding Early Access titles but I would definitely recommend playing this game. What have you got to lose? It is free.
