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?

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.

Desura runs now Savage XR 1.0, the latest version of the game.

Important note for beginners:
In Savage XR go to Tutorial, then watch the Humans, Beasts and Duel Replay.
You'll learn a lot by watching these good players play.

Have fun! :)

great to hear Desura updated
+ another tip for beginners: spectate on the server every now and then, its showing you how items are put to good use, also you will recognize the playstyles... or keep playing and die often, as I did ;)

Not anymore. The australian servers were populated 2003-2010. Around 2007-2008 they had 100+ online on peak times (with full 64 player servers) and had clanwars and leagues. These days they play on the USA servers usually.

I'm honestly having a bit of trouble installing then launching this game.

Everytime I install it, it works and updates fine, but whenever I launch the game it stays at the update screen and doesn't launch the game itself. So I launched the game from the terminal and it starts up but with a black screen, and it doesn't do anything else, so I have to use "/etc/init.d/xdm stop" and restart the whole session.

Could somebody help?

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.
