Eximius: Seize the Frontline, the strategy shooter hybrid from Ammobox Studios that seamlessly blends FPS and RTS action, escalates to its 1.0 release on PC via Steam and the Humble Store on the 16th of March, with a supply drop of new content. Eximius: Seize the Frontline will arrive with new units and battle-suits while also seeing the debut of a mechanic that allows Commanders to issue on-the-fly tactical orders.
Take up arms in a global conflict between rival security contractors competing to reestablish nations in a post-apocalyptic world. Coordinate with teammates in five-player squads to outmanoeuvre enemy combatants, seize precious resources, and secure victory.
Take point as an infantry Officer performing critical missions on the ground, such as securing strategic locations and capturing vital supplies for the war effort. Wield conventional arms or suit up in 10 distinct mechanized Vanguard battle-suits, each equipped with its own arsenal of skills and customizable load-outs. Strap into an Assault model and launch a torrent of homing micro-missiles, pilot the stealthy Orion class to infiltrate and perform a strategic strike, or watch over allies as a guardian angel with the Aegis’ shield and healing abilities.
Meanwhile, Commanders take control, orchestrating the fight with a birds-eye view of the battle. These leaders utilize classic real-time strategy mechanics to direct units, manage resources, build bases, research technology, and more. Commanders also watch over their teammates, relaying what’s going on while providing crucial support like well-timed artillery strike.
Eximius: Seize the Frontline marries the instinctual thrill of first-person shooters with a true RTS experience to deliver an engaging, ever-changing multiplayer game like no other. Each side of the coin informs and enriches the other, as tactics and action intermingle and play off one another to create a dynamic fusion marked by one memorable moment after the next.
“Eximius: Seize the Frontline stems from a desire to introduce fresh ideas and innovate in the genre of first-person shooters, the team couldn’t be prouder of where we’ve arrived, realizing our ambitions with a game where strategy and communication are every bit as important as marksmanship. We can’t wait for players to join the fray and show us what theyߣre made of when Eximius deploys on Steam March 16!”
said Jeremy Choo, Director, Ammobox Studios.
Eximius: Seize the Frontline launches for Windows via Steam and the Humble Store for $29.99 with three game types: Strategic mode, Cooperative mode, and Skirmish mode, a solo conflict where players take on an AI as an Officer or Commander. Eximius will feature English, German, and Russian language support at launch.
