Save 50% on Summer Sale + Update #71 + New Faces!



In honor of the Summer Sale launch, we're rolling out the red carpet and our 71st update for Templar Battleforce on Steam. Who doesn't love a well-supported game?

This update brings two new faces to the Templar designer, allowing you to design your squad from among 46 different characters and helmets. These good looking faces are special to us -- they come from our awesome supporters on Patreon who won a raffle to join the Templar squads. Welcome to the party, and roast some xeno for us!

We've fixed the bug that was making critical damage go crazy! No more 1800+ damages!

We've also made some small improvements to the amount of SP you'll start with on some levels where you have story characters or any specialized Templar which will help improve swapping. We've fixed the long standing challenge that you couldn't swap at the start of Mok Prime: Starport Breach. It's about scenario #40, so its important to have your best Templars on the ground at the start of that challenging battle for the Starport.

v2.6.29 - 6/22/2017
- Added 2 new Faces to Templar Designer - now pick among 46 faces and helmets!
- Small up balance to starting SP for swap on some levels
- Added ability to Swap in Mok Prime Starport Breach level
- Fixed Weapon damage display which were off by 1 in EQ screens

Update #70: Killer New Captain Relic + Combat Log Updates



If you love your melee Captain, or have an unstoppable Auto-Block Paladin on your team, today is your day. This week's release includes the new Cascading Tact Relic. This superior Tactical System allows either a Captain or a Paladin to have unlimited counter-attacks against enemies! It comes at a hefty price of 7 Gear Levels, but its a worthy trade-off.

A big thanks to all of our players who have made suggestions and pointed out issues in the combat log. This first update fixes a ton of little issues, clarifies some things, and adds a new line that includes the exact Deflection and Penetration numbers, so you can see the exact numbers used when rolling for Penetrating hits.

Please share a review if you are enjoying the game and the updates!

v2.6.27 - 6/19/2017
- Added new Relic: Cascading Tact for Paladins and Captains, unlimited counter-attacks
- Fixed combat log position on mobile screens
- Fixed issue with Templar melee defense showing as 0s in combat log
- Fixed issues with rounding errors in Critical Multiplier (6%) in combat log
- Fixed issue damage and armor ranges being off by 1 in combat log

The Templar Knights are a revered and storied martial order who were the elite forces for the Star Traders during their most challenging conflict: the Galactic War against the Guild.

Their unchallenged prowess derives from two key factors:
  • Leviathan Battle Suits - They pilot 10 foot tall battle mechs known as Leviathan Battle Suits. Once designed for high-pressure environments and exploring gas giants and deep space, these mechs have been adapted for war.
  • Templar Lineage - Templars descend from a Zendu bloodline -- a unique heritage that gives them the ability (with proper training and ritual) to pass all of memories from their lives (and any memories passed down by their ancestors) to a newly born child. This memory gift is known as a Templar’s Lineage – and it is what gives Templars their immense advantage in combat, tactics, engineering, and the ability to drive the hulking Leviathan Battle Suits. The player takes on the role of a Templar Captain who hails from a storied Lineage reaching back 87 Templars -- and who pages back through the memories to help cope with the dire situation at hand.

The Templar Knights are a martial order sworn to protect the Star Traders – the last known free humans. Under the guidance of the Templars and the prophet Shalun, the Star Traders departed the ruins of the Galactic Core, leaving behind desolation wrought by the great Galactic War. Guided by the prophet, the Star Traders sought a new home among the stars. Across the multi-generational journey of the Great Exodus, many ships have been lost, fallen behind, or splintered from the main fleet -- scattering the Star Traders to the galactic winds.

With the Great Exodus coming to an end, the Star Traders founded new colonies on the few remaining habitable worlds. The Templar Knights are called upon once again to defend the Star Traders and their new colonies from an ancient threat.

Templar Battleforce is the fourth Trese Brothers title set in the Star Traders universe. The game follows Templar Assault, the Trese Brothers’ original squad-based warfare game in which players lead squads of Templar Knights against the Xeno threat. Templar Battleforce inherits not only the rich story of its predecessor, but the game’s high tension and corridor-to-corridor combat style. Games created by the Trese Brothers are known for challenging difficulty progressions, so you’ll have the option to play on easy and normal difficulties -- or crank it up into multiple gears of insanely challenging combat!


Trese Brothers Games is one of the premier indie game development studios for desktop and mobile RPG and strategy games. Andrew and Cory Trese founded Trese Brothers Games in 2010 from a shared passion for challenging, highly replayable games. With more than six games on major game platforms and markets, Trese Brothers Games has more than 2.5 million customers . . . and counting.

Come join the family! We’re an indie studio built on the mixed skills of three brothers: Cory is the oldest and our engineering ninja, Andrew is the middle brother who both codes and draws, and Martin is the youngest and the artistic talent behind Templar Battleforce. You can find our team interacting with gamers every day on our forum about everything from features to new content.

We make games we love -- and we hope you’ll love them, too!
