'Minecraft'-inspired shooter 'Ace of Spades' release date announced

By
Minecraft-inspired shooter Ace of Spades will be released next week, Jagex has announced.

The multiplayer shooter, which has been installed 2.5 million times during its prototype phase, will be available from Steam on December 12.



Featuring upwards of 32 players, users will be able to design their own battlegrounds, all the while competing in team-based deathmatches.

Combining combat and construction, the voxel-based sandbox game will enable users to build elaborate fortresses, small bunkers and underground tunnels, which will dynamically change the course of the battle.

In addition to team deathmatch, the game features a Zombie mode, in which players must survive an undead onslaught, Diamond Mine mode, where the aim is to collect more treasures than your opponents and a Demolition mode, which sees users attempt to destroy opposition bases.

Describing it as a unique experience, producer Arash Amini said: "In Ace of Spades, we have created a game which seamlessly combines combat and construction gaming in real-time to create a truly unique experience.

"Players are equipped with the tools and abilities to craft elaborate fortifications, co-ordinated multiplayer assaults, and master stealthy and strategic battle tactics in their attempt to obliterate the enemy from the game."
