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?

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.

Natural Selection 2 and Nuclear Dawn are pretty good recent FPS/RTS games.

Try Empires Mod. Same thing, but with FPS-style gameplay. You'll need TF2 in order to play it though, I believe.

Hi WizGamer2013, when you play from Uruguay on a german server, that means a ping of 300+ milliseconds. Which is extremely high. If your connection isn't perfect either it's likely that your unit warps in addition to the lag (delay). That happens in any online game, not just Savage XR. :)

Yo!
I've played it for 7 years now and to me (and according to many other players) this game is just the BEST. Why? Because even the best players have a chance to improve. It's a game where people beat others at something. It has many roles which must not be underrated like the game usually is itself.
Don't worry if your aim isn't that good, there's a big choice of ranged weapons that still can be used with great success! The melee system only spices things up.. especially when you run out of ammo/mana!
If you don't feel like a field player you can concentrate on commanding! Which can be learned pretty fast by either reading topics on commanding, watching instructional videos or just, guess what? Playing! Exactly, playing (and spectating) are the best ways to improve in this game!
So if you're not really liking the game in the beginning, at least give another few chances and most importantly ASK HELP in chat or on newerth.com forums!! There are many people who are willing to help newbies learn the gameplay!!

P.S the community was built by other players just like myself, which is a key factor in keeping it alive!

Good luck!!

Thanks for the video review. You should really check the tutorial section though. :p

The reason why there are "vikings" (nomads) with lazers is because the game plays in far future. Mankind destroyed itself and had to start from zero. After that nuclear winter they are facing the rapidly evolving horde of humanoid beasts, so they start to group up and rearm under the lead of Jaraziah. They discover long forgotten knowledge and technology. That's why you see that crazy mix of ancient and modern weapons, high velocity cannons in improvised wooden shafts.

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.
