Uncapped Games unveils Battle Aces action RTS for PC

Uncapped Games announced Battle Aces, a new action real-time strategy (RTS) game for PC that aims to unlock the core fun of RTS games for a wider audience.

At the Summer Game Fest 2024, Uncapped Games showed a trailer and said it is creating a design that’s truly easy-to-learn (and difficult-to-master) for any player. 

The game depicts the future of warfare in the 26th century as humanity experiences strife amongst the planets in a desperate struggle for limited space and resources. High-tech drones controlled by mercenary commanders, or Battle Aces, fight explosive, large-scale battles in the front lines of this war.

Battle Aces sets itself apart from traditional RTS games, by allowing players to choose their army composition and customize their play style through Unit Decks. With over 50 units to choose from at launch and more than 40 to be made available to play in the upcoming closed beta test, Battle Aces offers an immense variety of potential in-game matchups, and near-limitless strategic potential that begins before a match even starts.

In-game, Battle Aces delivers a combination of design innovations such as automated resource gathering, instant unit-spawning, and preset expansions that keep players focused on the fun of controlling and maneuvering massive armies in battle, even as they manage the moment-to-moment strategic decision making of when to expand to new bases, and when to tech for more powerful units.

User interface innovations allow players to quickly swap between unit production and army control on-the-fly, without the need to look at home base or manage production facilities. The combination of design and UI elements makes it easier than ever to build and reinforce armies and keep attention on managing the intense battles that are concentrated in each of Battle Aces 1v1 or 2v2 matches. 

With matches limited to 10 minutes, players can easily complete a series of satisfying battles even over a short amount of time, with the ability to swap Unit Decks to adjust strategy and play style in between each match. With the innovative control options available, Battle Aces is a strategy game that MOBA players and strategy game curious players can all enjoy together, including old school genre stalwarts looking for the next frontier of RTS with high skill expression, the company said.

“The promise of RTS has always centered on building and commanding a massive army, and controlling how it moves and fights across the map as you match strategic wits against an opponent. In Battle Aces, our aim is for players of all skill levels and experience with RTS to experience that promise in every match,” said David Kim, senior game director of Uncapped Games, in a statement. “In fact, what we’ve seen in our testing so far is that players new to RTS or less familiar with the genre have been able to learn Battle Aces and grow in skill more quickly than any RTS our team has ever worked on before. We invite everyone to sign up for closed beta at www.playbattleaces.com and try it for yourselves.”
