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?

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.

It maybe the launcher Desura has or something but my downlaod and install seemed to work fine. Once I tried to start the game it would go to a black screen and freez my computer. I was also having truble with savage2 but the install strait from the site worked well. Desura plz fix these anoyences.

Support forums are here: Newerth.com
At least tell what operating system you are using when a game is for Windows, Linux and Mac. Also add the log file Savage XR generated. Without that basic information, I don't think anyone would be able to help.

gave it a one rating simply because though it looked good i tried multiple times even after a reboot to launch the game and the auto update crap got in the way, it would fail and not even run the game. I just installed the damned game today through desura, why the hell did it not get the newest files then?

sorry but an unplayable game no matter how well made graphicly is still un loadable and unplayable because of this issue.

if i playable version goes online or it allows to update to a version that can atleast get finished downloading updates before it decides it can't find them would get another point higher rating from me.
actually able to be loaded all the way and played would get a perfect score

Your desura repository is most likely located in an area that requires admin rights.
Run the autoupdater as adminstrator if you're on windows vista/7/8.

If it fails to download updates your connection might be too weak,
open the au.cfg and change:

downloadThreads "15" to downloadThreads "1"
or try increasing the number of retries to 6
maxRetries "3" to maxRetries "6"

Alternatively you can just download and install Savage XR without desura:

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.
