Savage XR, also known as Savage XR: The Battle for Newerth is a truly original online game with a unique blend of the strategy, shooter, and RPG genres resulting in massive online battles, with players choosing to play as individual units, or as the commander - resulting in a gameplay experience you've never had before. Savage XR can be played either online, on LAN or offline against bots (without commander). The goal of the game is to destroy the primary enemy structure - the "Stronghold" for the human race, or the "Lair" for the beast race. Each team has one commander, who plays the game like an RTS, and additional players, who play the game like an FPS (but with a third-person mode for melee). Which role will you play, and what will you do?

Can you handle so much responsibility?
Boots On The Ground - As a field player, you will master a diverse range of weapons and units while engaged in a fast paced battle, where you'll earn gold by killing enemies or attacking enemy structure.

As a player you can be ordered to attack enemies, mine resources, or construct buildings, although there is no penalty for ignoring orders.
