Eximius is an FPS/RTS hybrid that focuses on Squad Based combat.
Eximius combines tactical First Person Shooter (FPS) gameplay with high level strategic decision making of a Real-time Strategy (RTS) game. The game features a competitive 5v5 team battles where players square off in a post apocalyptic urban environment.
Play as a Commander (RTS); build bases, train an army and call down support abilities to help your allies on the ground to gain territory.
Play as an Officer (FPS); lead your infantry squad into combat and crush your enemies with your agile tactics or brute force. Capture resources for your team, upgrade weapons and equip your squad with suitable weapons.
Eximius provides a multi-role gameplay experience where each player could choose to play a diversely different role and fight not only with brawns but also with their brains. An expert shooter could be outnumbered, ambushed and overwhelmed if caught in a wrong position. While a scheming officer could be assassinated in the right moment at the frontlines.
While the game is primarily focused on Player vs Player multiplayer experience, purely co-op game modes(PvE) will be launched as part of the game in later stages as episodic missions to explore the rich lore of the game
The objective of the gameplay is to win by holding down the most victory points. Alternatively, if your forces are powerful enough, you can completely destroy your enemy’s base and win the match immediately. The command headquarters cannot be rebuilt and the game will be instantly over.
As a commander you are also an officer, but you have the extra capability to switch to top down RTS interface to build bases and command units. An aggressive commander can also join the battle in the frontlines but they are normally expected to stay in relative safety and manage base development. Commander needs to be nominated by the team.
As the gameplay of Eximius revolves around team versus team battles, each team shares a base as well as resources and technology tree. RTS Commander can support the battle operations by training infantry units and vehicles, building bases and calling in airstrikes or support abilities.
A Commander can train AI infantry and assign them to players. Leading them as a frontline officer; your squad will fight with you sensibly, taking cover and help you both offensively and defensively.
Decide your combat roles and purchase weapons suitable to your play style and tactics. Your weapon and equipment determine your roles in the team. Respond to enemy strategy with appropriate firepower and equipments; be it vehicles , massive amount of infantry or sneaky players.
As your resources and technology grow, you can construct increasingly powerful units such as armored vehicles, gunships and elite soldiers. Your team can also gain powerful team abilities when you tech up to new tiers. Call down artillery, deploy quick-response force or launch EMP strikes.
The pinnacle of each team’s firepower is the legendary battle-suit. Equipping battlesuits allow players to use powerful abilities, have increased stats and is able to push the frontlines much faster. Officers will have choice of several choice of battlesuits, each with their own play style and set of abilities.
Eximius takes place in a post-apocalyptic world set in a near-future. Surviving nations exist behind large fortified walls as an evolved human kind known as ‘Homo-Eximius’ ravages through the world. Two competing organisation known as Global Security Force (GSF) and the Axeron Corporation (AXR) is tasked to defend the walls against the mutant threat,e xtract lost resources and reclaim abandoned cities for their funding nations. For a decade, the two factions grew apart in territorial dispute and eventually fall into a full armed conflict. You play as one of the faction to capture and extend territory for your funding nation.
The game will feature 2 different factions at launch. They differ in gameplay styles, aesthetics and technology.
Global Security Force (GSF)
A peacekeeping organization set up after the first initial great war; the GSF foundation is built upon the principles of securing the walls, recovering human survivors and rebuilding the civilized world. They command the largest military force in the world and operates on a near limitless budget. Nations that choose to fund GSF do so for their vast armies and their global presence.
Axeron Corporation (AXR)
AXR is private research organisation that turned into a security contractor out of global needs. Being at the forefront of science, many believes that this wealthy organisation holds key technologies that could bring about global peace. With limited manpower, the Axeron industrial complex produces highly advanced drones for their workforce , both for military and nonmilitary use. This elusive organization operates in an extremely organized and stealthy manner. Nations that choose to fund AXR do so for their advanced scientific capability and confidence that they will be the solution to the growing mutant threat.
Player Versus Player Modes
Eximius’ multiplayer matchmaking focuses on lobby-based matches. Players create or join a lobby, before starting search. Each match will earn players with experience points , allowing them to level up and earn tech-points.
Pre-Game refers to a process of team customization before the game. During lobby Players can use their earned ‘skins’ and ‘loots’ to customize both aesthetic and gameplay upgrades. Gameplay upgrades are important tech-specialization that players can choose as a team. As each player levels up in experience, they earn Tech-Points. Tech Points are needed to pick specialization; much like an RPG skilltree. With these upgrades , players can access strategic customization that allows them to upgrade or unlock more powerful units , abilities , weapons or battlesuits.
Eximius will feature some co-op missions at launch. Co-op missions can be played anytime and allows player to earn customized skins and aesthetic loot drop upon mission completion. Co-op missions are intended to be released by us as a continuous content support to the community. Some larger missions may require DLC expansions.
