Your Rating


Steel Storm is a top down arcade shooter with old school spirit. The game has score oriented competitive gameplay, and is designed for people who like fast paced action, hordes of smart enemies, destructible worlds and ground shaking explosions.

The events take place in an alternative universe where you are a pilot of R.I.A.C. (Royal Interstellar Armored Corps), who controls an advanced hovertank, packed with the most advanced and sophisticated weapons. Your task is simple, but nevertheless not trivial. In the fight against separatist Union forces, you must prevail!

Key features:

Enjoy fast paced and streamlined gameplay
20+ hours of gameplay
Engage in online warfare with up to 16 players in any of the multi-player modes
Pave your way to victory with the burning remains of your enemies through 25 different campaign missions
Complete Challenges and unlock First-Person camera mode
Create new missions or modify existing ones using the unique real-time collaborative mission editor

While I noticed lack of interest in new content for original Steel Storm, I figured maybe Steel Storm 2 news would cheer you up.

Oh, my bad x.x I did not know that a dedicated server is just a service lol. I had like 10 servers running but I thought it still did not work. <_<

Yeah, dedicated server runs "headless" (no rendering) so it would appear as terminal window (at least suppose to).

Make sure you edit .cfg files to give your server proper name to appear in the server browser.

1. Because it was harming sales of Burning Retribution
2. Because it was redundant to have Ep1 and demo.

The purpose of Ep1 was to show people the game. Once demo emerged, it was doing a better job in introducing people to the game. You still can find Ep1 somewhere online.
