Savage: The Battle for Newerth is a science fantasy computer MMO game that combines aspects of the Real-time strategy (RTS) and First-person shooter (FPS) genres.
Savage, The Battle for Newerth is a unique 3D MMO shooter fantasy game that takes place in the future after humans have went through major battles and are finally beginning to regain power. There are two fractions in this game called the Legion of Man and the Beast Horde. Without the technology the humans once possessed, they must live by gathering materials and hunting.
The beasts are apelike creatures equipped with some intelligence who is the main enemy of the humans. They battle over possession of Newerth and both sides are equal when it comes to fighting so the conflict continues. You start by downloading the game and picking out a character name. Next, you join a server hosted by players where you're expected to fight and help your commander defeat the enemy.
There is no tutorial in Savage, The Battle for Newerth so as soon as you choose your server and character you're ready for action. This MMO shooter game uses real-time strategy combined with role-playing methods to level up. You'll unlock new equipment to use as you move up in levels so it's important to advance.
Mineral deposits are located in different spots on the large maps and part of the game will be fighting for control of them. The ore can be used for weapons upgrade and you can help collect it or defend other players while they do the collecting. You gain experience points by helping the commander and by killing the enemies and monsters. Players can also scout the territory and build or repair structures.
The battles can last between thirty minutes to an hour and several players can be involved. The outcome of the battles partly depend on the commander in charge and the type of equipment you have. If you have a strong commander with good strategy plans and battle skills, you have a good chance of winning and advancing through the MMO game. The commander can also reward other players through promotions, which move them up in rank and by giving them gold.
Both long ranged and melee weapons are used in this strategy fighting MMO game. The melee weapons are very powerful and used the most often. If you enjoy large scale battles and working with groups then you should thoroughly enjoy the action that Savage, The Battle for Newerth has to offer.
