Destroy everything: Ace of Spades launches on Steam


11:00 PM on 12.12.2012



Class-based multiplayer game Ace of Spades has landed on Steam today, and accompanying its arrival is the obligatory launch trailer with the only appropriate song Jagex could have used. Motörhead might be the obvious selection, but props for seeing the licensing through.

Originally, I had expected this game to go the free-to-play route, though that is not actually the case. At $9.99, Ace of Spades does appear to check off the right boxes with a zombie survival mode, a mode which encourages base destruction instead of outright kill counts, and more.

These types of games -- even the admittedly rather bad ones -- seem to be very popular as of late. (Have you been to the Xbox Live Indie Games channel?) We have a full review in the works, so be on the lookout for that in the next week or two.

Review: Ace of Spades

A game that combines ideas from both Minecraft and Team Fortress 2 sounds like it would be a match made in heaven. The LEGO-style buildings and aesthetics combined with the multi-class gameplay should be right up my alley. Ye...more

Jagex to put sandbox shooter Ace of Spades out on Steam

Does this look at all familiar? Ace of Spades was one of the first Minecraft-esque first-person shooters I remember paying any sort of attention to, although I admittedly never did try it out. 2.5 million of you installed the...more

I picked up the Excalibastard in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

There has been a bit of talk about an interesting legendary weapon in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel that is in plain sight, but unavailable at first. Excalibastard is stuck in a stone in the area Stanton's Liver, and only those...more

Destiny has so much lore, it's sad that almost none of it is in the game

In-game, Destiny's story is probably the worst part of the experience. Constant Dinklebot "defense" missions and short exposes during load screens are hardly what I'd call a narrative, but that's what Bungie ended up giving u...more
