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

Far Cry 4's Pagan Min teaches a man to scream for help, not text for help

Poor Pagan Min. He tries ruling his regime with a positive influence, but all those terrorists are there to just, ahem, "muck" it up. Maybe his tendencies to take hostages and implement electroshock torture aren't viewed by everyone as "positive," but it's tough to argue with such a snazzy dresser.more
