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.”

BRAWL IV - 12 O'Clock High - Patch Notes Preview



Chocks Awayyyyyy!!!

Set your sights on the sky with tomorrow’s new BRAWL - 12 O’Clock High. Tomorrow (Thursday, 19th January) we’re swapping out our current Plasmaball Fight BRAWL for an exciting air-based battle over Birmingham Power Station where propellers will be the movement part of choice. If you don’t fancy your chances in the air, stay close to the ground with tank tracks.

Tomorrow we’re also kicking off our ‘Play For Kaleigh’ fundraising event. Kaleigh, a friend of Freejam, suffers from a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumour condition known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). We’d like to raise £10,000 to contribute to Kaleigh’s treatment and we plan to do this by donating 4p to every completed Robocraft match played between 11am (UTC) Thursday, 19th January and 10am (UTC) Thursday, 26th January. So, the more games YOU play, the more money WE raise. Simples!

Alongside these new additions, we’re tweaking some parts and fixing some bugs too.

NEW:
  • New BRAWL - 12 O’Clock High
  • In-game counter to track and display money raised for our ‘Play For Kaleigh’ fundraising event



BRAWL IV RULES:
  • Game Mode: Team Deathmatch
  • Players: 5v5
  • Map: Birmingham Power Station
  • Not Permitted Weapon Types: Lock-on Missile Launcher
  • Permitted Movement Types: Propellers, Aerofoils, Rudders, and Tank tracks only
  • Bonuses Awarded: x2 XP and +1 extra crate for first victory
OTHER CHANGES:
  • Re-balanced Propeller parts with the addition of a short spin-up time
BUG FIXES:
  • The "1st win bonus" label over BRAWL menu is now correctly translated for all languages in-game
  • Propeller names translated in all languages in-game
  • The Robocraft Launcher now displays Release Notes and Latest News correctly (omitted from the last patch notes)
  • Fixed a visual bug which cut the Propeller Rosette on the Robocraft splash-screen when playing at 1280x1024 resolution
  • Fixed a bug that made a robot lose mobility and speed if you combined two different types of propellers
  • Missing polygon on the back of the small propeller has been fixed

Play Robocraft, Raise Money for Kaleigh



Play Robocraft, Raise Money for Kaleigh

Want to raise money for a good cause and have fun playing Robocraft at the same time? May we introduce the ‘Play for Kaleigh’ charity event starting this Thursday, January19th!

Over the past year, all of you awesome Robocrafters have helped to raise thousands of dollars for great causes like AbleGamers, Oxfam, Doctors without Borders and more, and this time we’re raising money for a fund which is a bit more personal.



Meet Kaleigh, she is a friend of Freejam and suffers from a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumour condition known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). This life-threatening form of brain cancer is predominantly found in children. DIPG is as hard to treat as it is rare; with around 40 children diagnosed in the UK every year. Sadly, 50% of cases diagnosed pass away within the first 9 months.

To learn more about this condition, please visit The Brain Tumour Charity website.

Kaleigh’s family is trying to raise over £200,000 to fund groundbreaking Convection-enhanced Delivery (CED) therapy to improve her quality-of-life and to raise awareness of the condition.

On hearing of Kaleigh’s plight we felt compelled to help and we invite you, the Robocraft community, to join us.

So how can you help?

For every completed Robocraft match played between 11am (UTC) Thursday, 19th January and 10am (UTC) Thursday, 26th January, Freejam will donate 4p to Kaleigh’s fund.

We want to raise £10,000 to contribute to Kaleigh’s treatment; which by our calculations is 250,000 matches played over 7 days. In any given week, there are usually just shy of 250,000 matches played in Robocraft and with your help we hope to smash this target!


Track our fundraising efforts via the new counter we’re adding to the game.

Other ways to help:

A massive thank you to all the Robocraft community for helping with this endeavour.

Thanks for reading and we’ll catch you all in-game.

Go Team Robocraft!
