Multiplayer RTS/FPS EXIMIUS: Seize the Frontline Enters Early Access
Few games brave new frontiers. Over the past decade very few have tried to blend the real-time strategy and first-person shooter genre, but Malaysian indie developer Ammobox Studios has big aspirations for their squad based multiplayer title EXIMIUS: Seize the Frontline.
It features an intense 5v5 power struggle where one player on each team acts as the RTS Commander and is in charge of production and coordinating the assault. The remaining 4 players act as Officers and lead a team of AI-Powered soldiers to capture enemy resources.
Commanders can build bases, train and assign armies, command heavy vehicle movements and deploy dropship upgrades. They can even summon airstrikes to turn the tide in a pinch. At the top tier of production enters the mightiest of weapons, the legendary BattleSuit. BattleSuits allow players increased stats and come in a variety of different specializations, each with their own play style and abilities.
EXIMIUS is available now on Steam Early Access for $29.99 USD.
