Robocraft to bury loot boxes and return to the tech-trees

It would seem that the merest mention of premium loot crates is enough to raise hackles these days, least considering the recent slew of games either having completely excised them (Battlefront 2) or are in the process of doing so (Middle Earth: Shadow of War). The next game to step up is Freejam's free-to-play build n' shooter Robocraft, which is returning to the tech-tree based…

Robocraft Royale rolls, flies, and clucks into early access

In new battle royaler Robocraft Royale, players are scavening for whole new vehicles: tanks, planes, mechs, cars, and hovercraft, through stranger creatures like mechanical chickens, sharks, and dinosaurs, and even the odd massive Mario on his kart - bristling with different weapons and abilities. That's what happens when the foundation for 100-player rumbling is the silly bot-building battler Robocraft rather than a serious shooter. Today,…

Robocraft Royale stomps into early access this month

While some battle royale games send players scouring levels for such thrilling treats as backpacks and off-brand energy drinks, Robocraft Royale will have us scavenging for mechs, hovertanks, fightbikes, planes, spiderbots, warwhales, and other big smashy vehicles. Robocraft Royale will enter early access as a paid standalone game later this month, developers Freejam have announced, following a short stretch of public alpha testing. Freejam initially…

Robocraft Royale’s public alpha test is live, and good fun

I'm not good at Battle Royale shooters. Most of my time spent playing usually involves crawling through long grass or hiding in bathtubs, hoping desperately to make it to the final 15-20 players simply by being a no-show to combat encounters. My second round of Robocraft Royale (a spinoff of Freejam's construction-combat sandbox Robocraft) saw me taking control of a railgun-equipped giant robot catgirl maid,…

Robocraft hops on the Battle Royale bandwagon

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has a lot to answer for. The explosive rise of the competitive sandbox shooter has changed the face of competitive multiplayer gaming on an unparalleld scale, with countless studios moving to capitalize on the new big thing, and capture a fresh audience of millions. Sadly, many of these retrofits and hastily assembled games just look bland, doing little to differentiate themselves from that…

Robocraft blasts out of early access this month

It'll hit version 1.0 and launch on August 24th, developers Freejam Games have announced. If you're the cautious sort who'd rather not play even a free-to-play game until it's done, hey, it's almost here.

Now With Added Scorpions: Robocraft

Robocraft is an early access mash-up of World of Tanks and voxel building, letting players build land and air vehicles and then take them into online arenas to do battle. Chris thought the "tinkering is actually more fun than the tankering," when he played it back in July, though both are likely better after the latest update added wall-scaling, crawling vehicles to its already hefty…

Feature: Cube Hurt

The Lighthouse Customer: Robocraft

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, building, driving, and flying robotic cube-tanks in the free-to-play Robocraft. My robotank, Killdeathinator -- named for all the killing and deathinating it's been dishing out -- has just entered its 5th iteration. Killdeathinator Mk 1 had four wheels, a couple guns, and was made…
