Story

abatron hybrid fps rts Bar3 grey

What is the story of Abatron? Eons ago, two technologically advanced races disputed territorial rights over a neighboring solar system. The dispute turned to widespread war and destruction, killing innocent lifeforms inhabiting nearby worlds.

In the aftermath, the remaining advanced races came together in an attempt to prevent this tragedy from ever happening again by forming the Council of Abatron.

Abatron resolves disputes with controlled combat at the galactic level. Each faction brings forth its best warriors and technologies to battle it out, gladiator style, atop celestial remnants of the tragic past. Pick from several races to play.

Haagenti Characters

abatron hybrid fps rts Bar3 grey

Get your freak on by launching rockets from your belly, playing as the Haagenti. Spawned from the most distant corners of the galaxy and demon-like in appearance, they believed that guns were better than hands. Thus, using cyborg technologies, they transformed their bodies into weapons of mass destruction.

Rocketbelly -- Blubbering Gutz

Rocketbelly by abatron on Sketchfab

Primary Attack:

Long Range Siege. Plant this behemoth to grab the ground as he launches rockets at distant enemy forces. Not effective for short range attacks.

Secondary Attack:

Toxic Spray. When not in siege mode, the Rocketbelly emits an acidic jet stream from its slimy tongue. If you see tongue, run!

Special FPS Ability:

Rocket Guidance. Hold on to your shots, cause shit just got intense. Fly through the battlefield controlling a high speed death present courtesy of you.

The Death Penalty

News 0 comments

PLAYING CAT AND MOUSE

"During our recent play, we have been banging our heads over an ever emerging problem. How could we properly reward player skill during the process of doing battle with other players. Something we really enjoyed in game play was the fact that once you died in FPS mode, you auto hopped into the next closest unit.

This hopping kept the player in the battle for a longer period of time and allowed him to continually push ahead. The player penetration was really amazing, if not godlike, in some base sieges. However, it presented a problem when the first attacking player always won in the end. The defending player couldn't get ahead of the onslaught in his effort to go on to conduct his own offensive battles.

Death penalty added!

Now, when you die, you have a rejoin delay. The delay scales longer as the match time extends. What we learned is that there was no fear of death and every battle was a mass kamikaze. Player skills didn't matter as much and there was no cat and mouse scenario where you would back off a more powerful player. In fact, the game was mostly about killing non-player units. We believe this is a better way to keep the players godlike, reward player skill, and keep the game from going too long. It also refocuses the attention on killing players first and units secondarily."

Read about other changes we've made to the game in our blog here.

TEAM COLORS CONTINUED...

Now that we have have colors implemented for our units, we decided the buildings could use a paint job as well. It helps really tie in the feeling of your base belonging to you and your team. So please enjoy what we've made so far!

i hope it got rts building like command and conquer you know barracks warfactory walls ect.
multiplayer with AI players.
and easy moddability.
steam lol(easy to buy)
well if all that is in that game i will pay like 50 euros (and belive me i dont have them)

i was waitng like 100 years for a game like this
battlezone 2 it was close but no infantry bad controls just ruin it for me. so i hope this game will be the ONE

btw some games that promise rts that i dint like
1)empires mod=no AI,you have to build buildings your self(in fps)
2)renegate=no rts at all(why westwood why??)
3)natural selection to build a turret under a house\cave\building? no thanks,no AI(like build soldiers and tanks)
4)Savage=only 5 workers,no AI soldiers only the workers,players vs players ok but no AI soldiers to command? pffff
well the list is huge of disappointments so i will stop here

dont downvote me for my list i just dont like the fulse idea of rts elements they give
but they are all fantastic games and i mean it.but not fantastic rts\fps games.

sorry for the large comment,i just wanted to share my thoughts.

I completely agree with you. I want to see more games like this, maybe some medieval/fantasy would be nice. But this looks to be a fairly good start! Say... how moddable will this be? =P

thanks for the comments, we will try to please for both play styles. We have a cool dynamic base building idea to show, or if you just want to play fps only, you can specify a base template and go off to war.
