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?

Can't update game from auto-update servers, it connects downloads for a little while then crashes out, always starts the downloads back up from the beginning. This is the error:

ERROR: Failed to Update!

Could not download 'libs/' after 3 retries.

This error can occur if you have a poor internet connection or if other applications are using the internet. Try restarting the Updater to re-download this file.

Would you like to launch the application anyway?

Linux Mint 13 32 bit(Ubuntu 12.04 LTS)

This looks like your having a connectivity issue to the server

Difficult for us to fix it :/ You can try editing your au.cfg and reducing the number of threads to 1 and see if that fixes the issue.

downloadThreads "15" to downloadThreads "1"
or try increasing the number of retries to 6
maxRetries "3" to maxRetries "6"
failing that can you turn on debug mode:
debugMode "0" to debugMode "1"
and post your autoupdater/au.log file here:

Seems like your install is incomplete. Did you run the autoupdater at all and if so, did you run it as administrator (in case you're on windows Vista/7/8)? The autoupdater puts your game files into the right place when you start the game for the first time. If the problem still occurs, you'll find the support forums here:

Hey juan11_87! You need to install the 32bit x86 libs. Check this thread in the newerth support forums:
Have fun and make sure to check out the in-game tutorial section before you start playing. Otherwise it's gonna be frustrating.

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.
