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?

Im getting a black screen after I start the game, no sound, cant get back to desktop but get to tty1 and restart the lightdm to get back. Any idea? I have an nvidia graphic with latest 310 drivers, Im actually playing other Desura/Steam games so Im somewhat sure its not related to the card.

can you play it as only a shooter? or is it mainly strategy?

As long as you're a rather unexperienced player you will experience the game in action mode mainly, because as a commander in strategy mode you would be responsible for the fun of a whole team. And nobody likes to have an incompetent leader. :) However, the gameplay in action mode is very diverse and tactical. It will take you weeks to learn the basics and even longer to become a skilled warrior.

Make sure to check the tutorials and replays in the Tutorial section of Savage XR. Watching shoutcasts from the current Savage League will also help you to improve: Youtube.com

Have fun!

You can choose to be either the commander (strategy) or play as a unit (shooter)

I want to play!!!
But i only get white noise all over my desktop when i start. I think its the SFX, since when i set them high it takes more space from the seeable field than with low graphics. Is there ANY!?! fix for that? I would kill for a game of savage right now. Playing commander wouldn't be fitting for a noob like me right now... ;-)

It'd be nice to learn how to play, but the tutorial is bugged. It looks great and seems like it would be interesting, but I can't finish the tutorial.

Indeed; the tutorial just got broken by a recent update. Thanks for the heads-up, we'll fix it asap. We'll also add a Beast tutorial, a practice mode map and melee practice against bots, for new players, in a matter of days.

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.
