Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Nuclear Dawn is the first game to offer a full FPS and RTS experience, within a single gameplay model, without crippling or diluting either side of the game.

As a soldier, explore war-torn post-apocalyptic landscapes, modelled on modern cities, and take the fight to your enemies as armoured, assault or stealth infantry, using various weapons across ten distinct load-outs to accomplish your objectives. The first person shooter action in Nuclear Dawn is hard, fast and unforgiving, with weapons that rely on skill and tactics more than on twitch reflexes and map memorization.

Then, take Nuclear Dawn above the action, and play as the commander. Organize your fellow players in squads, and assign them to tactical objectives. Plan the resource routes for your army, and production of your structures for forward deployment. Exploit the terrain and resource point locations to block your enemies’ advance, and crush their plans in an iron fist. Research and implement new technologies to give your soldiers the edge on the battlefield, and set up forward bases to lead the assault on your enemies, with a full complement of defensive and offensive structures to choose from, to build your perfect fortress.

  • Two factions: The Empire and the Consortium have completely separate base-building paradigms.
  • RTS commander: Produce structures, research advanced technologies, unleash devastating strikes on the enemy, and lead your team to victory as a RTS commander.
  • Four classes: Each faction has four classes with various kit load outs, totalling over three dozen weapons.
  • Advanced Weaponry: As a commander, judiciously dispense healing to your troops, and death to their enemies, by managing your advanced abilities.
  • Stats and Unlocks: 60 ranks, 12 unlocks for each weapon, achievements, gizmos and more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A really great game that needs more players! October 29, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC Download
    I picked up this FPS on sale on another site, and it is really is a good time. The game is a FPS with persistant player stats, deployable structes, c&h objectives, seige objectives, a class system, and an array of perks and weapons. And it is a package done on the whole in a very unique manner. On each side one person will enter a command both, and play the game as a RTS overlay, while the rest of the team plays as a fps. The comander will deploy structures, can issue orders (which generate xp for the ground troops when followed), research tech, and so on. A lot of a good round depends on having a good comander... thankfully, there are voting tools that let a team have control over who is running the show. The FPS action can be fast and intense, and is often a good time. The only real weakness of the game is the fairly small player pool at this time. Not to worry, there are games going on all the time, but it would be nice to see more severs with player numbers posted.

    1.0 out of 5 stars multiplayer only, no single player June 8, 2012
    Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
    I was expecting both single player and multiplayer. This game is multiplayer only. No single player. No solo play, no bot support, no playable tutorials. Nothing in the description or on the game case told me that. IGN and gamestop websites don't mention this either. Only the gamespot website was clear about this (but I didn't see the review on gamespot until after I bought the game).

    You can't sell this game once you buy it, because it is a steam game; so, once you use the serial code, the game is yours.

    Internet connection is required (not an issue for me). You either join an online multiplayer game, or you host/create an online multiplayer game.

    Had I known it was multiplayer only, I would not have purchased it. The seller was Magnum Games.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic December 1, 2011
    By Eric
    Platform for Display:PC Download
    I've been having a lot of fun with this game lately. Even though it's using the Source engine, it looks REALLY good. It reminds me of Quake Wars in the sense that there is almost an endless amount of strategies you can use and it doesn't feel repetitive.
    I rarely play RTS games (I loved the old C&C games though) but it's definelty a unique and fun experience when the soldiers you're commanding aren't A.I. bots.

    Basically the point of the game is to destroy the enemy's base while the Commander(rts mode) sets up defenses, supply stations, sets up power-lines, turrets, launches arty strikes, builds forward spawns and so on.

    While playing as the soldier, you need to capture resource points for the Commander as well as attack and destroy enemy structures. You win the game if the Command Post is destroyed or if the enemy spawn gates have been destroyed and their team has been wiped out.

    There have been lots of updates since release including a major one in December.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, under-rated game! January 5, 2013
    Platform for Display:PC Download
    Don't be fooled by most reviews if you're a fan of FPS and RTS this is one of the best games out there. Now that it supports steam workshop there are even more mods and maps available for more content. The game does however have a small mult-player base, it's mostly a under dog in the massive company gaming market. I bought this game on steam for 2012 holiday sale and have at least 150 hours of gameplay into it. It also features a nice persistent level ranking system, and global stats. Definitely worth the buy!

    5.0 out of 5 stars the RTS part makes all the diffrence August 7, 2014
    By Raphty
    Platform for Display:PC Download
    i liked nd a lot!
    i even joined a clan while playing it.

    I belive that i woulkdnt work that well with bots and even in public games its not as good as with a clan but it has such a high potential, with the rts elements ist great and diffrent every time u play it.

    i as a platoon leader created new tactics for evrey match and for both factions, the fps part is on both factions pretty simillar but the diffrent power options on the rts part make a huge diffrece.

    i really like this game!
    but u really need frinds with whom u play it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars very pleased with the game December 3, 2011
    By X-GOUKI
    Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
    I was surprised how much I enjoyed the game.
    Team work is key in this game, so rambo heroics don't really
    get you far.

    The game doesn't do much to stand out against such a crowded genre, but
    this is one fun game.
    The graphics are ok and they do the job, and since this is a source engine
    game it runs pretty good on lower end systems.

    Overall I recommend this game to anyone that enjoys team oriented FPS.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nuclear Dawn Rude Awakening/UnClear Dawn May 15, 2014
    Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
    Different then what I thought it would be. I thought it was going to be about throwing nukes at the enemy.
    No, it's a fps game played in maps of nuked cities.
    It is so different in technology/graphics that it makes it a unique game to own. I rather enjoyed the game design and play.
    I would suggest adding this to a pc gamers library for sure.
    I was anticipating lobbing nukes at foes like in Missile Command, World In Conflict, Command and Conquer, but no.
    The game itself is good. Because it was not what I was looking for I gave it 4 Stars.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Does ok with the RTS, murders the FPS
    The RTS is really well done, reminiscent of C&C or starcraft. The fps section is terrible. No feedback, just feels very floaty and insubstantial. Read more

    4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable to play and challenging to master
    A solid combination of a multiplayer FPS and a multiplayer RTS. The multiplayer can be barren at times. There are bots to supplement this.

    3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay.
    the game is a little imbalance in my opinion but it's still a fun real time strategy / shooter for the pc.

    The game itself alright but this Steam program that the game runs on takes over your computer... Purchase only if you are a serious gamer....
