    “Nuclear Dawn could become the most important FPS game to arrive in a long time” – Destructoid

    Since its release in October 2011, Nuclear Dawn has received 6 major content patches which added new classes and weapons, new maps, additional Commander research and abilities, and a slew of community-requested small and large features to keep the game competitive and fresh.

    Upgrades since the release version include, but are definitely not limited to:

    • Oilfield – a new, sprawling map of intense desert combat
    • Saboteur Stealth – a new class armed with deadly remote explosives
    • Support Boost Pack – ammo kits, player boosts and deployable radars have been added to the Support’s arsenal
    • Advanced Research Options – Commanders can now research several powerful upgrades for infantry, structures, or for their own abilities
    • Battle flow improvements – with spawn-to-spawn fast travel, preferred spawn points, a more solid and functional in-game UI with better menus, a compass and more information
    • Training and tutorials – in-game step-by-step tutorials and training sessions to guide you on your first steps in the Nuclear Dawn universe!
    • Community features – with a configurable auto-balancer, powerful customization options, and full support for server administration and modding tools, this is the game YOU want to play!

    And we’re not done! This promo day marks the beginning of a new phase of development which will bring even more features to this title which gives “..far more bang-per-buck than most AAA games give you” (AVault).

    On April 12th, join us on the battlefield of tomorrow, sample highly polished FPS/RTS fusion, and stay for the long, passionate battles that will test even the most hardened FPS gamers and RTS gurus.

    Okay so its a Daily Deal. You guys should really proofread your announcements more, got all our hopes up D:

    The old announcements have already been spread around gaming communities, Reddit, Facebook etc quoted as free weekends and weekend sales so thats unfortunately caused some confusion.

    right now there are 114 players playing, which is around 0.1425% of 80,000. However, some of those are bots and some are free-day players.

    Whether bots count is sort of a personal decision.

    Yea, I was gonna say, if only 1% of 80,000 people played it'd be a miracle. And as that one gorg dude said, I think the issue of base rape needs to be fixed with another mode, since a lot of people leave the game because they won't give the game a chance.

    this 1000x this as I've said for the past few months without response from IW. Very few people enjoy the base rape end game mechanics and commanders dominance over the game.

    Other than that the game and support by IW is brilliant and people are very interested in buying it, they just don't want to because theres so few still playing it or in the case of Oceania, no one.

    I'm sure a lot of those are the Indie Royale purchasers who have never played the game once.

    As for the commander issues, it should be REQUIRED that all commanders take the course to be able to command in game, in my opinion. Had a comm who WOULD NOT build an armoury or research seige and a bunch of level 1s who didn't feel comfortable mutinying him. The other teams' comm was nothing special but because they had seige they easily walked over us.

    Yes, people enjoy shooters with no objective and no reason to strategize. So remake Call of Duty Interwave! Then you'll have your swimming pools of money.

    Fixing the base rape does not mean that there is no strategy/tactics, nor does it mean that the RTS element must be destroyed. All we need to do is end the game automatically when a team is pushed back into the base in terms of both structures and players. Simple (well, relatively, compared to the numerous complicated balance-related suggestions).

    It was meant to be a joke and I didn't think I was suggesting you had said that. CoD is very popular, and very pointless imo.

    My text sarcasm was suggesting that pointless = popularity

    The balance just needs to be tweaked, that's the only problem also more content such as weapons woldn't hurt adding some diversity.

    the problem i have with this is that it eliminates any chance to pull off those wonderful late game rushes that make you feel very awesome for doing.

    true, it is a tradeoff. Perhaps there are other solutions, but I doubt there are any which are as simple.
