HIVE: Altenum Wars Update 1.14

The latest patch is here with thousands new lines of code and tons of new assets! We tried to listen to the community feedback in order to deliver what you expected for this update.

New map and game mode: Guard

One of the most repeated request was to add more maps and more gamemodes. Well, we did both by creating a new map that includes a new game mode. This map is an old rusty space station in which you need to escort a payload in her way to the enemy base in order to explode it and win the game.

New Character: Olivia

A New Character has been added to the roster. Olivia, Tactical officer of the UFG, specialist in strategy and control of the situation. It is equipped with a technologically advanced armor. She studied at the UFG academy, one of the brightest minds. Characterized by professionalism, and seriousness, it is difficult to get her to show her feelings. Despite Olivia and Jacob are great companions, there is a great rivalry between them.

New Weapons

With the new character, new weapons had to be done specially for Olivia. But not only that, we added new weapons to other character aswell we do some balance to the current ones.

Olivia Weapons:
  • Floating Mine (Throwable) – Small mine that floats and activates when touching with an enemy
  • Gravity Singularity (Special ability) – Anti-gravitational area that leaves without gravity every enemy that enters it
  • Sniper – Military weapon of instantaneous reach and great precision. It does x4 of damage if you do a headshot
  • Healing Link – Establish a link that cure the linked ally
  • Chaser Rocket Launcher – Fires rockets that can modify their trajectory in order to chase the objective
  • Double Electro Shoot – Shoots two electrified balls that will stun the enemy that has been hit
  • Old Weapons added to Olivia: Rifle, Bouncing Rifle and Machinegun

Other Characters With new Weapons
  • Archer: Blades – Sequence of three air cuts combining fast movements
  • Jacob: Double Electro Shoot – Shoots two electrified balls that will stun the enemy that has been hit
  • Sidi: Point Attractor (New throwable) – Ball of energy that can attract all enemies close to it
  • Sidi: Healing Link – Establish a link that cure the linked ally
  • Khloe: Dron (new special ability) – Deploy small intelligent robot that will chase and shoot enemies around

New epic skin: Cow Mulok

We are very thankful to the whole community during the first weeks of HIVE. We have been playing a lot with other hexadiers and looking all the funny moments that appear on our game, that’s why we want to make a special gift to our community with that skin.

New Trophies

We noticed that a really small percentage of players were able to unlock our trophies, we have realized that our current trophy system was not fair and sometimes it requires a high amount of hours and skill to get some trophies, so we refactor most of these trophies and also make it more fun to achieve. The current trophies are not about how long you play HIVE, instead are about do rare things on uncommon situations. Like kill someone after your death, teleport 4 people at the same time, spend more time sprinting in a game than dashing, or do a 5 headshots killstreak with the sniper, among others.

About This Game

HIVE is a multiplayer hero shooter in 2.5D side scroll with futuristic style and frenetic gameplay. Up to 10 players will have to fight in Hexadiums, hexagon-shaped combat areas located inside the planet HIVE. Hexadiums are scenarios that are divided into 6 zones, each with its own gravity, and which have platforms and open spaces that turn it into a frenetic battlefield.

In HIVE, we assume the role of the best fighters of the different races that exist in the game: human military (UFG), human modified by alteno (NHC), robots (EVO), and evolved aliens (Aeons). Each Heroes has several skills and weapons that can be equipped before entering battle, to suit the style of play of each player and that make each game unique with the hundreds of combinations that you can have with the weapons and characters available.

The battles are governed by a series of rules according to their game mode:

  • TEAM DEATHMATCH: A team fight in an industrial battlefield, aiming to obtain the highest number of enemy kills.

  • KING OF THE HILL: Teams must conquer and defend one of three different strategic points scattered across the map.

  • SURVIVAL: Offline or cooperative mode, in which the hero faces waves of enemies.

Main features:
  • Hexagonal battlefield (dynamic gravity)
  • Frenetic style mechanics (Dash, open spaces, low gravity)
  • Customisable abilities and weapons
  • Hero shooter, different unique classes
  • local and online multiplayer
  • e-Sports oriented, competitive feel
  • Single player mode: Survival
