Savage 2 released online

Multiplayer battler. Free to try.

Online multiplayer game Savage 2: A Tortured Soul is available to download now from the official website.

You can grab the client for free and play LAN matches indefinitely, or try online battles for five hours before being asked to fork out USD 29.99 for the full package.

For those unfamiliar with it, and you probably are, Savage pits two teams of five-to-17 of you against each other in a genre-bending battle. FPS fans will like the Battlefield-like action; RTS fans will like the base-building and idea of one person overseeing everything as a general; and RPG fans will like levelling up (each game from 1-10) and getting persistent items to carry across battles.

The original Savage from 2004 earned itself 8/10 on Eurogamer. "Given the right people and the right attitude, this is one of the finest multiplayer games of the year," concluded Tom.

Creator S2 Games is calling the sequel a labour of love, and we can't really see a reason not to give a shot. Apart from that it has savage torture in the title. Which I hate, by the way.
