From Press Release:
Eximius is designed to be a thinking person’s first-person shooter. It’s a highly-strategic 5v5 FPS where one player on each side supports their teammates from a RTS viewpoint by commanding AI infantry squads, vehicles, and air support. The experience heavily rewards team coordination while still remaining accessible to traditional audiences.
Suit up and step onto a next-generation battlefield where rival security contractors compete to establish nations following a catastrophic event that has thrown the world into chaos. Declare allegiance to a faction and coordinate with teammates as members of five-player squads to capture and secure resources, defeat enemy combatants, and claim victory.
Step into the role of advanced infantry Officers who strike hard and fast. Coordinate with squadmates to flank enemies, capture resources that keep the war machine running, and gain a tactical edge. Officers wield a variety of armaments, but excel when outfitted in Vanguard battlesuits. All 10 of these mechs come with a range of skills and customizable loadouts that can turn the tide of battle. Avoid detection by cloaking in the Orion model, protect squadmates with the guardian-class Aegis’ shield, or rain missiles down on foes in the Assault suit.
Oversee the action and direct the flow of each engagement as a Commander, whose ability to see the battlefield from a birds-eye-view provides a vital strategic perspective. Switch from firefights to tactical assistance, making use of a real-time-strategy interface to direct NPC units, build strongholds, request reinforcements, and even call in devastating aerial bombardments.
Experience an intense fusion of white-knuckle action and deep strategic play across online multiplayer matches melding the best aspects of FPS and RTS games. Fill a range of roles during the course of a single match by swapping battlesuits and coordinating with allies as a Commander to deal decisive blows. Compete across Strategic and Cooperative modes. Or take the fight offline in Skirmish mode, where Officers or Commanders take on waves of AI foes.
