Today’s the day that Classic Mode is launched, so log in, update and give it a go. This strategic mode is more reminiscent of the alpha versions of Ace of Spades that many of you have been asking for. We want the community to lead the developmental direction of this game mode so please do give us as much detailed feedback as possible. It is really exciting for us to be a part of this innovative project and we can’t wait to see what you have to say.
We want to cater for player preferences in terms of the way equipment items/weapons are used within the game, and since launch you have probably noticed a lot of balancing changes to weapons. This for example has seen weapons like the RPG go from Slow but strong to a much faster weapon with less impact. So what we will be doing is essentially seeing how splitting a selection of equipment items/weapons into two variations goes:
Commando - split the RPG:
Powerful, slow, single shot
Rocket jump RPG
Marksman – Split the Sniper Rifle:
Single Shot, super powerful
Weaker, larger magazine (more shots)
Rocketeer – Split the Jetpack:
Low hover Jetpack allows you to travel far quickly (long recharge)
Short burst Jetpack allowing ‘super jumps’ (quicker recharge)
Miner – Split the Shotgun:
Double barrelled, crazy power but short ranged
Pump action, less power but greater range
Post launch we will be really keen to hear what you think of the addition of multiple versions of weapons/equipment, which ones you prefer, if you’d like to see more of this, and ideas for future development.
On the 20th of December we will be releasing some free content, this will include four new maps; Simox's Heisville map, Block Ness, Arctic Base and Castle Wars. We will also be releasing a Capture the Flag game mode and a new weapon, the snow cannon.
A World War 2 themed map which won our community map competition. Dodge from hedge to hedge as you avoid the sniper fire from the town of Heisville in a battle to control the town.
Battle around a large lake which is dominated by a frozen monster in the middle. Are you going to snipe from the trees around the outside or launch a marine attack from the lake?
If you were fighting a super-villain in his hidden arctic base… this is what you would want to see. The best thing with this map is, that there are 16 enemies to kill, not just one!
Two giant fortresses face each other across the battlefield. You’ll need to work closely with your team so when you are scaling the enemies walls, they are not sneaking into your castle.
Throughout the next few months we plan to release much more content for you to enjoy. This includes World War One and Two which will deliver an experience reminiscent of Ace of Spades classic
Not only are we introducing some exciting content, but we are launching Ace of Spades in even more languages on the 20th of December. So, if you speak Polish, Mexican Spanish, Turkish or Russian, you will be catered for.
Meanwhile we are working hard on bringing down the system requirements to play the game and optimizing latency so the overall experience is get’s better and better. Currently we are working on getting servers up and running closer to Australia so that anyone in that area of the world should see some big improvements shortly.
Say hello to the creative shooter. Ace of Spades is the first-person shooter that lets you create your battleground, destroy it, then create it again. Up to 32 players choose from 4 unique classes and jump into team-based, multiplayer mayhem across an endlessly evolving battlefield, to construct, destruct and take out the opposition. Its like war, only better.
