Choose to be a commander and you will play an in-depth RTS managing the stronghold, or choose to be a warrior and you will play an intense game of first person combat. With the creation of a new game play genre, RTSS (Real Time Strategy Shooter), Savage expertly redefines the first-person shooter and real-time strategy genres by combining elements of both into one cohesive experience. As the commander in RTS mode, you will tackle resource management, develop a robust tech tree, plan your assault and lead real human players into battle. As a warrior in action mode, you will master many unique weapons, powerful units, and siege vehicles to fight a fast paced battle.

Set in a unique fantasy world eons from now where Humans and Beasts battle violently for their very existence. Savage transports PC gamers to the next level in multi-player gaming. Choose to fight on the side of HUMANITY, armed with science and technology, or take the side of the BEAST HORDE, masters of nature and magic. Each race has its own style of battle, its own leader, and its own way to victory. Which side are you on?

Hey There, just want to say some words about this game.

Firstly i want to draw an analogy with Counter Strike, the most popular action shooter game in the world which is alive at this moment. Thanks to what? Of course of his gameplay. Savage has there own innovations, which keep me in game from old 2006 year. Due to this, the Savage like Counter Strike has stay for me the game which has gameplay extremely not boring to me at all.

Secondly, i want to give some description about this strong innovations and gameplay.

Of course Savage like an other action game have there shooting system with unique weapons. Here u not see something new.

But there melee system has extremely innovate to this day. The melee weapons has there own trajectory, and different moves has produced there own hit trejectories. So u can swim under or through block of opponent, with some precise moves of your mouse. So with ability of beasts simple jump on couple metres forward, u can see the unbelivable not repeated dance of battle.

The second strong innovate, that this game is fusion of two genres: action and real time strategy (RTS) But commanding slot is just one for all team. U need some skills to take commanding place, which in most determines the success of the battle.

The third thing that the game has its own competitions like Newerth Savage League for clans, Duel competitions (Thanks for melee system, its interest equel to the main game, but without good statistic, that bad :( ) and of course Savage World Cup (Again without good statistics that shows for example that that clan, country or dueller more gooder than other in that 10 years of savage exists etc)

In the end of review i want to give some critic for creators. Somehow, but the newest mods (Samurai Wars, Extreme mode) and games (Savage2) that of cource exists in that 10 years in that way not bring development of unique features that exists in Savage1 (generally melee system)

So, namely that game give from me 10 from 10

I allowed it internet access but I'm still not seeing the redstone mine in the human tutorial any other ways to fix it?

Some players with the issue reported that it is fixed when they reload the tutorial. Have you tried that?

Just got the game installed and it seems to work fine as I played a few melee test rounds. I feel like every Desura game I play never works through the client, which like this game I was only able to get it to work after doing a direct download of the .BIN file for my Ubuntu 13.10 (64-bit) system.

You have to hit the redstone mine a bunch of times, then bring the stone to the stronghold. :)
Tomorrow there will be a big update with new melee duel bots you can practice against, a redesigned website and a gameplay trailer. So stay tuned!

I believe for some people the tutorial is still bugged, seen some people having problems with it.

I figured out what his problem was. If you don't allow Savage XR to access the internet (windows display dialog showing up in the background depending on security settings), the Stronghold and Redstone Mine will be invisible in the tutorial and the server list won't load as well.

I've been playing this game for about 18 months now and it's awesome. Each team has one commander, who plays the game like an RTS and coordinates team strategy. The rest of the team play on the field: mining, building, scouting and fighting (the combat is a combination of shooter and melee). I love the distinct teams (human and beast), the melee combat is the best I have experienced in an online game & the RTS commanding aspect is unique.
