Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

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

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Freejam are now plotting a path to full release with an aim to be out of Early Access at some point in 2017.”

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

“While users accounts will never be reset - so what you earn in game now you will always keep - the full release of Robocraft will contain a number of additional key core features, many more social features, Clans, more game modes, many more functional components and weapons, a tutorial and PVE mode and full game localisation into many different languages.”

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 its blood. The word Freejam is a combination of 'free' and 'jam', where 'free' shows our dedication to keeping Robocraft always free, and 'jam' stands for jamming with our community to determine how our game continues to evolve. We like to think of Robocraft as a game that has been built from the ground up in collaboration with the community.”

The Return Of The Mega Update - Coming Tomorrow



#BigBotsAreBack

This week, we're travelling back to the future and bringing back some old friends - Megabots!

We listened to you guys and we're bring them back in a bigger, better and ultimately more free-er way than before. From tomorrow, June 29th, you'll be able to build MEGA Robots up to 10,000 CPU and take them into Custom Games as well as Play vs AI mode. Megabots* will be free for all players, a premium membership is not required to enjoy them.

In addition to the awesomeness that is Megabots, we'll be making a number of other improvements including some changes to searching the CRF and fixing a stack of bugs too. To find out what's in the update, check out the patch notes below.

NEW:
  • Megabots added to both Custom Games and Play vs AI modes
    • FREE to all players
    • Highest CPU is now 10,000
    • Any Robot over 2,000 CPU is flagged as a Megabot on the edit bay floor



  • Megabots can only be played in Custom Games or Play vs AI modes
  • Weapon Energy doesn't change building beyond 2,000 CPU
  • Megabots in garage bay slots are highlighted with a red flag



  • Megabots can be uploaded and downloaded to/from the CRF
  • New CPU filter added to the CRF to accommodate Robots 2k - 10k CPU
  • New Custom Games sliders:
    • Health Multiplier - set down to 10% or up to 500% Health multiplier for all Robots in battle
    • Weapon Energy Multiplier - set down to 10% or up to 500% Weapon Energy multiplier for all Robots in battle
  • If any player in a Custom Game clicks on their player avatar on any screen, they can chose to leave the Custom Game
IMPROVEMENTS:
  • Improvements to the CRF with added search/sorting filters
    • Sort CRF results for specific parts or Robots with no movement or weapon parts
    • Sorting by cost
    • “Any weapon” now rejects robots with no cubes from “weapon” inventory category
    • “Any movement” now rejects robots with no cubes from “movement” inventory category
    • Helium removed from CRF movement filter
    • Thrusters added to the CRF movement filter
    • Removed the hover over info pane from the CRF
  • Play Screen updated to lock-out game modes if player has a Megabot selected



  • Improved Nano VFX and SFX as a direct result of player feedback



  • Improvements to team buff UI
  • Visual improvements to the drag-and-drop of players in Custom Games
  • Added missing SFX to some Custom Games actions/events
BALANCE CHANGES:
To make the Nano projectiles look more like a beam, we increased their fire rate to 20 shots per second and proportionally reduced their energy consumption and heal per hit. The overall heal per second should remain the same



BUG FIXES:
  • Fixed Pit Mode to work with Tharsis Rift Map
  • Fixed a visual bug that caused some module icons in the loadout to repeatedly flick between small and expanded circles when being used
  • Fixed a typo on the Hellion Crater name in the Custom Games map list
  • Reverted zero mass change for Helium Cube because it was causing unexpected issues
  • Fixed a bug which caused the party widget to appear on the crate screen when returning from a match
  • Fixed a bug which allowed a custom game leader to interact with the party widget while in the queue for battle
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Custom Games damage slider to be in the incorrect position to some players when they returned from a Custom Game
  • Fixed a bug which caused the wrong score to be displayed under player names in The Pit
  • Fixed a bug that caused the + button in Custom Games to sometimes fail when switching between Pit and another mode
  • Fixed a bug which caused the in-game camera to be off-centre when using the Blink module in certain situations
  • Fixed a bug which caused the active garage bay to zoom in/out when using the scroll wheel anywhere on the screen (including chat)
  • Changes to Custom Games invalid invites to ensure consistency with party invites
  • Fixed a bug which caused the mouse icon to appear as a hand when in the CRF
  • Fixed a bug which caused early leaver penalties to carry over into Custom Games
  • Fixed a bug which permitted Custom Games party members to interact with the party widget
  • Fixed a bug which allowed party invitees to interact with the party widget
  • Fixed a bug which prevented players from using the scroll wheel in Custom Games chat unless they were hovering over the scrollbar
  • Fixed a bug in the Pit which caused players to spawn in and around the same area as everyone else
  • Fixed an audio bug which caused the wheels engine sound to continue playing when a player loaded back to the mothership
  • Custom Games sliders and checkboxes are now greyed out for players joining a custom game
  • Fixed a bug which prevented the pending clan invite "!" from disappearing if an invite has been accepted/rejected
KNOWN ISSUES:
  • Excessive use of flags on a Megabot will result in severe game lag for the player using the Megabot
  • Setting the Weapon Energy Multiplier in Custom Games to 10% may cause some weapons to not fire. This is caused by a player having less weapon energy available than what is required for a weapon to fire

*With Megabots in Custom Games we wanted to give you the freedom to have maximum Megabot craziness without restrictions. However, depending on your PC's power/spec, pushing things to the max such as a 5v5 10k Megabot Battle Arena fight may result in some lag.

Vehicles Artbot Competition Longlist



Last week, we gave you the job of designing amazing Robocraft vehicles using the newly re-worked wheels as the core movement part. Basically, we wanted you to create some kick-ass cars, trucks and other 'wheely' awesome Robots. And you did not disappoint (you never do to be honest)!

We had over 1,500 Robot submissions uploaded to the CRF last week and we looked at each and every one of them. Picking the final winners for this competition is not going to be easy I can tell you.

Below are our favourites that make up the longlists for each of the five categories. You'll notice that the higher CPU categories have more finalists than the lower CPU categories; this is simply because there were more Robots submitted in these categories.
