Savage: The Battle for Newerth

Surprise - reboot of multiplayer oddity Savage out now

Imagine a fantasy RTS where real people are your troops.

Do you remember Savage: The Battle for Newerth, that ambitious online shooter that mashed up first/third-person action and real-time strategy, and threw in role-playing systems too? Two players would play as opposing RTS generals, looking down on the fantasy field, and all the other players would be their units. Great idea. And it worked - providing you had players of the right temperament involved (Tom Bramwell wrote our Savage: The Battle for Newerth review).

Try out Savage 2 for free

The offline bit, anyway.

S2 Games has announced plans to make Savage 2: A Tortured Soul available for free download via their official website.
