BattleBit Remastered is among the 12 months’s breakout hits, a low-poly Battlefield-style FPS huge on the destruction and, most significantly for gamers, huge on worth. The game has rapidly discovered an infinite viewers, a lot of whom are delighted by the concept of a game with an upfront value that does not subsequently nickel-and-dime them with a battle move or DLC components: you pays your cash, you will get the entire thing.

The game has bought over two million copies in its first few weeks of launch, and developer TheLiquidHorse took half in a fan Q&A to speak about BattleBit’s future. “That is simply wild,” the developer stated of the game’s success. “I do not even suppose any one in all us has realised what we even have finished now.”

One wag asks if there’s any vivid orange Lamborghinis within the dev workforce’s future, given the cash BattleBit will need to have made. However TheLiquidHorse says a lot of the money goes straight again: “Majority of it can stick with the game, we’ll solely take a small portion to make this a dwelling now. I am a giant automotive fanatic however sportscars will nonetheless stay a dream.”

A number of questions had been focused in the direction of DICE’s Battlefield sequence, and particularly what BattleBit delivers that, lately, followers really feel Battlefield hasn’t. TheLiquidHorse commendably resisted the temptation to take any shots on the game that clearly impressed and underpins a lot of their very own, as a substitute selecting a extra optimistic view of issues. “We’re just a few newbies on this subject,” stated the developer. “[DICE] in all probability know issues manner higher then we do. What occurred in the previous couple of years there wasn’t their fault, I believe they’d nonetheless be capable to ship an absolute stunner of a Battlefield if they’d have the time and freedom.”

And Battlefield wasn’t the one inspiration. “Battlefield, Squad, Insurgency, HLL, Ace of Spades….,” stated TheLiquidHorse, “mainly something FPS, all of them have some nice issues to them.”

One participant famous that medic is an overwhelmingly in style alternative, of their opinion as a result of the medic’s levelling progress is quicker than different classes. “Sure, we’ll give all different roles a buff down the road and make them extra viable in fight” agreed TheLiquidHorse. As for the grind extra typically, “we will certainly revisit the development down the road and fill the gaps with new weapons.”

There will not be Steam Workshop assist. “We’ll permit a point of modability with the group servers, however a full steam workshop isn’t potential,” stated the dev. “The game was by no means constructed for it.” One participant requested a technical query about what server optimisation has been like, to which TheLiquidHorse answered merely “hell.”

BattleBit’s huge success has led to different types of hell, too, with the primary few weeks spent largely fixing exploits, battling towards DDOS assaults, and usually coping with the kind of issues that this type of scale brings. Therefore, the largest studying from creating one thing like BattleBit: “The extra you fuck round,” stated TheLiquidHorse, “the extra you discover out.”
