Update #80: Save 50% + Fortify Your Position!



Join us in the Lunar Near Year Sale and save 50% on Templar Battleforce today!

To kick off the new sale, we've got an exciting new update. This one refreshes the Fortify Position buff from your Engineers, giving it far more stopping power in terms of Armor, Deflection, Critical Chance and Auto-Block but also tagging it with small Movement penalties. It is perfect for Sentry Turrets or other hold-your-ground tactics.

Filling out the Gear Level roster for Assault Armors, we've added a new GL 5 and GL 9 armor. The Giltwing comes straight from our community paragon and wiki editor, @drspendlove whlie the Calvary is designed for fast moving Templars with a Move Bonus.

Thanks to all of our Templar captains joining us in the fray against the endless tide of xeno. If you've enjoyed Battleforce, be sure to pick up our newest title, Star Traders: Frontiers which is 20% off during the sale as well! Set in the same universe, you can even visit the Cirm Quadrant and the Righteous Fallen.

Update #79: Armory Upgrade



The Templar mechs march to war and they demand the very best weaponry and armor! Update #79 fills in some of the Gear Level gaps with new and improved weaponry for Captains, Berserks, Soldiers and Paladins.

The Soldier's new Battalion Mk3 Rifle is a Gear Level 7 powerhouse, found under the Grenadier branch of the Soldier's tree. The Warstar Leviathan is a heavy Gear Level 9 armor found under the Leader in the Ranks branch of the Soldier's tree. Finally, the new Dhragen Hammer is a Gear Level 9 alternative to the Obliterator Maul which weighs in at GL 12. Arm up, and release the mechs of war!



We've also fixed a longstanding issue that cause enemy levels to display incorrectly, not taking difficulty into account. That is now resolved in all hovers and right clicks to bring up monster details.

Thanks to the player who pointed out the swap bug in Starport Breach level -- now fixed! We're down to one last level that prevents swapping and we're working to resolve that still.

v2.6.47 - 1/25/2017
- Corrected enemy level display issues
- Fixed Swap exploit in Starport Breach level
- Added new Soldier Armor 'Warstar Leviathan'
- Added new weapon 'Battalion Mk3 Rifle'

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!
