Robocraft News - Battle for Birmingham Expansion Launches

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jun 02, 2016  | Comments

Battle for Birmingham Expansion Launches | Robocraft | MMORPG.com

Robocraft has grown with the release of the free expansion called "Battle for Birmingham". New content includes a new avatar system, team deathmatch PvP, a new map and the usual bug fixes and feature enhancements.

  • New Game Mode - Team Deathmatch: With the Battle For Earth expansion, Robocraft’s existing single-spawn Team Deathmatch mode has been renamed ‘Elimination’, and a new mode has been introduced in its place. New Team Deathmatch has a more traditional flavour than its previous incarnation; five versus five match setup, multiple respawns, 10-minute match length and the team with the most kills within the time limit wins. Alternatively, teams can also win by hitting the kill limit for the match. If scores are tied when the time limit is up, the next kill determines the winning team.
  • New Map - Birmingham Power Station: Named after the birthplace of its lead artist, Birmingham Power Station has been designed to give new players a better opportunity to grasp the nuance of combat in Robocraft, while at the same time offering competitive-minded players an ideal theatre to gauge their supremacy over others. This smaller map has no capture points and no distractions -  instead the goal is simply to destroy the other team as efficiently as possible.
  • Platoon Size Increase:  To help accommodate high-level team play in Team Deathmatch, players can form platoon sizes consisting of five players rather than four as before. This allows players to form a complete team for Team Deathmatch before they enter the matchmaking queue, and teams will be matchmade against similarly formed groups whenever possible.
  • New Avatar System: Players can now select from dozens of avatars which appear by players’ names in menus, leaderboards and above their robot in combat. Premium members also have the option to upload their own custom designs.

Players can redeem the code "BATTLEFOREARTH" to grab a 24-hours of free Premium membership time as well.
