Prior to being picked up by Jagex and released to a wider audience on Steam, Ace of Spades had an alpha build that was available as a free download. While both versions carry the same name, it was the earlier Ace of Spades with its trench warfare that players seemed to prefer. Now, the new game -- the commercial one on Steam -- is getting a free Classic Mode as DLC:

  • Classic Specific Class: Deuce Character Class – An updated version of the single character class which featured in the Classic version of the game.
  • New Maps: 5 new battle maps including a community created map.
  • Traditional Gameplay: In a nostalgic nod to the original game, the Classic Mode DLC brings back classic game modes and the trench warfare theme. 
  • New Strategy Focus: Slower gameplay and maneuverability gives tactical strategists a chance to shine and beat their opponents into submission.

This content is supposed to drop today, so if you happen to own AoS already, perhaps it'll be worth it to check back in. I'm somewhat worried that fans of the alpha will feel this isn't enough, since that's how these situations have gone down in the past despite best efforts, but I do love that a) they're trying and b) it's free.

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

Just how tactical is Rainbow Six: Siege?

Rainbow Six: Siege has some single-player component, but the E3 reveal was multiplayer-focused, and that's probably going to be the best bit of it.  Unfortunately, the carefully manicured, staged banter of the...more

Heads up: Payday will be free on Steam in October

It feels silly to tell you about a game that's going to be free months from now, but maybe, just this once, it'll prevent someone from buying said game right before the promotion begins. With that in mind, Payday: The Heist w...more
