- Four infantry classes - Prepare a surprise attack as the scout or take the enemy head-on as the rifleman. Drive back enemy tanks as the grenadier or support your team as the engineer. With four different infantry classes, each with customizable skills, you can create the perfect class to fit your playing style.
- Squad-Based Teamwork - Players can organize themselves into highly-effective squads, overwhelming their opponents with superior tactics. Squad leaders can not only direct their respective members, but also use special squad powers such as reviving dead squad members or calling down an artillery strike on the enemy.
- Vehicle Combat - Whether you're ferrying troops around the battlefield with the Armored Personnel Carrier or reigning fire upon your foes with the Artillery tank, Empires features a variety of vehicular combat. Choose from six different vehicle types, including three levels of tanks, and customize your weapons, armor, and engines.
- Real-Time Strategy Commander - For those more inclined to RTS gameplay, you can play as the commander. Place buildings, build defensive turrets, construct vehicles, and conduct research on your way to leading your team to victory.
With 15 official maps and dozens more community-created ones, no two matches are ever the same. Empires brings FPS/RTS gameplay to a whole new level. Join up today and see what you've been missing.
In case anyone wonders, here is the link to the download on Steam:
Wow. Really? Wow. Congrats! Never thought it would happen.
This has made my day.
Getting back into the game nao....
FINALLY! what took it so long?
HOLY ****!!! MY HEAD EXPLODED IN EPICNESS!
This is great news. Empires really deserved this.
^Tons of happy people, above!^
Good job getting it on steam :D
congrats krenzo ... long live emp_slaughtered
I don't know what it has to do with Krenzo.
Wtf..? o-o but empires has been on steam for at least a year now... >__> This is great, but still old news D:
No, it hasn't been.
But..where is it? Somewhere buried? The MODS section has been removed and there isnt really a way to view all the steamworks HL2 mods anymore.
Just search for Empires, it's the third or fourth down the list.
Morthon, it hasn't been on Steam for a year...they've been talking about it for a year.
Hey, if this is happening, I hope NeoTokyo gets on Steamworks to get MUCH NEED EXPOSURE OF THE NEW VERSION WITH IRONSIGHTS COMING TO YOU THIS YEAR. :P
I mean hell, Gabe himself visited the NT devs, if they don't get on Steamworks, I find that a crying shame.
Gabe visited an office where one of the NeoTokyo devs worked. Plus this news is about Empires finally getting steamworks. Well deserved guys.
Technically, the mod WAS on Steam before, but you couldn't actually DOWNLOAD the mod through Steam - the mod page only linked to the old Empires homepage (which I'm sure caused quite a few "WT*" moments). Regardless, congrats to the Empires mod team on this real-world achievement!
Dude you get around O_O you been posting on everysingle mod i have looked at today O_O
meh... no one even plays it anymore anyways, and it's just a spin-off of CSS gameplay; aka nothing spectacular like this mod
Some play it, and it's vastly different than CS:S.
I guess that means...achievements!
Good job :)
Reported on this when it happened a few days ago Modsentry.com Glad to see more mods getting the Steam treatment!
Great news, I think I have to give this one more try. Empires really seems to be interesting but it surely requires some time to get into.
This is very nice news. I hope more people will now see what they missed.
Congrats, let's hope there is more to come from you.
Empires is great. Shame I don't play it anymore. Maybe that will change now? ...maybe
while mods were always hard to find on Steam it's nice to see some of the more deserved ones get a proper treatment now.
Hooray, now I don't have to manually download the mod and patches :D
Had seem it a while ago, congratulations, you deserved to go there! Love this!
Bout damn time!
This is awesome. Just played a skrim with some folks, holy damn that was fun.
