Story

HIVE21 is a squad-based real-time strategy game set in the near future where intelligent life forms have invaded earth. The intruders quickly set up organic bases, the HIVEs, from where they launch and coordinate their operations. During the first weeks of contact human counter operations were quite effective, but then HIVE21 emerged, apparently the most powerful one, and things quickly went south. Now, most of human population is eradicated or scattered. Find and destroy HIVE21 and save the earth!

Features

Skills

Your soldiers have access to a wide variety of different skills - it's your task to combine them in the most efficient ways to reach success. Rockets, stun-rays, decoys, deployable lights, shields, teleports and many more - your arsenal contains an option for any situation.HIVE new screenshots11

Tactical pause

Though HIVE21 is a real-time strategy game you can always pause the game with the push of a button. The tactical pause offers you necessary combat intelligence and allows you to carefully plan your actions ahead. Get the most out of your skills and combine them wisely.

Lighting influenced gameplay

Darkness engulfs each level. Use static floodlights and your soldier's flashlights to light up the scene. Your enemies don’t rely on visual perception but your soldiers can’t attack what they don’t see.

Four playable classes

Commando, Spotter, Sniper and Medic: Each class has its strengths and weaknesses but together they make a great team!Combine their different skills for maximum efficiency.

Variety

Different playable soldier types, various enemy types (e.g. Hunter, lightning fast Gecko, the Mind-controller, Worm, Sloth and Spitter,...). These creatures from hell give your team a hard time, while you try to reach your objective.

Different scenarios

Guide your squad through a dangerous post-apocolyptic wasteland infested by hordes of unkown lifeforms. Use your wits to adapt your soldier's individual skills to many different scenarios and finally find the monstrous HIVE21. From navigating them through unknown territory over desperate defend-and-survive situations to coordinated offensive operations and escort missions - the aliens will always push you to your limits.HIVE new screenshots01
