Is this the future of Robocraft?

Is this the future of Robocraft?

Freejam have been working hard on some awesome technology that will allow us to relax the CPU limits and really allow you to create Robots of fantastic scale and power early in 2014.

These megabots will be rare in game and their owners will be infamous, as the dedication and skills required to build and master these vast boss Robots will be something most users can only dream of.

The images in this post are concept images, and the YouTube video a concept video showing the scale of the Robots we’re aiming to allow in Robocraft.

The changes to the game required to allow Robots with over 100,000 cubes in won’t happen over night, they will happen step by step and in parallel to all the other features planned. We just wanted to give you an early peak into the future of Robocraft and what amazingness 2014 will bring.

NB: The scale of the L10 wheel on this Robot is virtually the size of the entire new user Robot. The scale of the L10 Lasers on this Robot are more than twice the length of the current L5 S-TYPE.

    Amazing. My designs of having scout mobiles are going to be tough cause of these monstrosities.

    pew pew pew… what about the legs…bit slim…?
    and I think this idea is great , it prompts this to be a boss battle and team based kind of game, I like the idea but we should keep the owners of these mega beasts away from other players (eg. tiers 1-7) as they won’t handle this too well

    This would go well with the Faction/Alliance/Guilds/Clan/Cult/Chapter…etc
    each one could have their own champion and if matches could be chosen (not random) but picked and Commanders could input different members from their Faction/Alliance/Guilds/Clan/Cult/Chapter…etc to battle against this mega bot from another Faction/Alliance/Guilds/Clan/Cult/Chapter…etc

    The new ‘Boss Bots’ are going to be awesome! (And extremely hard to beat too!)

      Yes, we’re going to simplify the cube shape (i.e. remove the bevels) and tweak the style as we go. We want to maintain our custom high-fidelity but whilst maintaining the frame-rate and low-lag that can support bots as large as this.

        you guys are doing great without me testing it 🙁 i believe this is going to be a big step (i.e lots of bugs,more players on servers,etc) i wish you the best. and thanks for answering.

        Definitely remove the bevels. I believe that could actually make Robocraft a bit faster.

        So.. How soon could you remove the bevels? Because I actually really want them gone. xD

        I love the way Big bot looks with the visual changes, looks more modern and just better.

      Say, Mark, what’s the chance of you letting users from the community help pre-alpha test new features? They could help you get a lot of the testing done faster, letting you guys keep programming or taking time off, whatever you need/want to do, while they handle the playing. It’s what we’re here for, after all. lol
