Thanks for Participating in the 8-Bit Armies 2nd Year Celebration!

Hey all!

We just wanted to say thank you to everyone that played, created, and competed over the last month to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary for 8-Bit Armies.

Congratulations to all our winners of the various Steam Gift Packs and Game bundles we handed out. We hope you had as much fun as we did. Everyone should have received their goodies by now, but if you didn't please feel free to let us know and we will look into it.

As you can see, we continue to support the game, so this is by no means the end. While not as frequent, more updates are coming down the road so check back often to see what else is in store for the series.

8-Bit Hordes Update #30 - 05/09/18

Welcome to all our new players and all our die-hard fans!

We've just released a patch to re-enable harvester crushing for the original 8-Bit Armies title, something many of you remember from our launch and have asked for. Harvester crushing now works in the following way...

  • Multiplayer Quickmatch / Ranked games preserve the no-crushing rule for Guardian and Renegades Harvesters
  • Skirmish and Custom Multiplayer Games now provide a checkbox option for turning harvester crushing on/off.
  • Single & Multiplayer Co-Op campaigns have Harvester Crushing Turned on by default.

Please let us know your thoughts!

About This Game

The Hordes are Coming!
From the team that brought you 8-Bit Armies comes a new fantasy RTS as fast-paced and friendly as the original! 8-BIT HORDES is a colorful strategy-arcade game that is easy to learn for players of all skill levels. Collect resources, build up and defend your base, amass your army of orcs or humans and ultimately crush your opponents! 8-Bit Hordes features offline single-player missions, two-player cooperative missions, AI skirmish mode, and Player-vs-Player Multiplayer modes running on dedicated game servers.

8-Bit Hordes includes all the following:

  • 2 Factions - The Dark Orcs and their Undead allies versus those annoyingly cheery Humans, Dwarves and Elves of the Lightbringers.
  • 24 offline campaign missions
  • 12 co-op missions to play with your friendly fiends
  • 10 multiplayer/skirmish maps that support up to 8 trolls online
  • Devious AI opponents with multiple difficulty options to play with cooperatively or destroy
  • Classic Base-Building mechanics let you construct the ultimate lair from which to launch attacks against your foes
  • Destructible environments on maps ranging from the underworld to cemeteries and haunted forests
  • A fun and friendly art style even the forever cursed would enjoy
  • Full interoperability with 8-Bit Armies' factions and maps providing endless crossover combat opportunities
  • An awesome new soundtrack by Frank Klepacki
  • From the same team that brought you RTS classics such as Star Wars: Empire at War, Universe at War, and Grey Goo

8-Bit Hordes is for anyone that enjoys RTS games but felt overwhelmed by complicated game mechanics and mysterious unit controls. With hours of solo and co-op gameplay included, there's something here for everyone!
