Just over a month after the start of open beta, Renaissance Heroes has now been deemed officially “live” in both North America and Europe.

The transition into release was accompanied by a new content patch which includes a new playable character called Sika who wears what looks to be a cross between a wizard outfit and jester pants. A new domination mode was introduced along with two new maps called Graveyard and Aqueduct, whose names certainly leave no room for imagination as to what they may entail.

    this game is a quake like game. Today people play call of duty and hide around objects and pop out and shoot. I grew up on the fast pace shooters where you die a lot and blow stuff up. This game I will download and try

    I agree with Trenix its stupidity to pay real money for forever weapons in a virtual world.

  4. Trenix on February 23, 2013

    The game is really basic and isn’t even better than the original unreal tournament. Should of expected that because of the company that made it. It’s also one of those games where your weapons only last for a few days. Sorry, but I just can’t stand losing all my progression because I have better things to do than dedicate my life into a game.

    I’m not finding anything special coming from it, don’t get me wrong you can have some fun in it but for me it’ll only be like a 10-15 minute filler maybe once a day.

    If gameplay isn’t amazing then I expect cracking graphics……….doesn’t deliver.

    Renaissance Italy, refreshing atmosphere, classical Doom and Quake gameplay, can I ask 4 more ?
    Actually I can – 3 person option bit its good any way.
    Any way, cant stand more modern warfare and Sci Fi shooters.

    I think I will still play ghost recon online and hawken.

    im no love quake, this game here have quality. i hate gotham shooter or ghost recon online suck games.

      F&*king idiot.Ghost Recon Online is great and from what I’ve heard Gotham City Imposters is very good too.

      • BrandNewDaddy on February 21, 2013

        GRO was a great game, pales to comparison of the actual console games, but still a great game in its own stand alone world, Gotham City Imposters is a fun fast shooter based upon that of Team Fortress 2, as in play style and art style, it has some added bonuses like a better loadout building system. I feel ugurano hated those two games(which he is completely entitled too) because he could not excel in it as he could Quake, or this game right here. For those of you who feel that the game sucks, try changing your tactics when you play, this isnt COD, this isnt Quake3, this isnt even Team Fortress 2, play it as a completely new game, do the tutorials, play a few rounds thinking as a newb and when you feel you have the hang of it, go at it full force, if you continue the way you did before, which got you killed, change it up!

        from what i`ve read – idiot is someone else: the one who cant stand alternative oppinion

    • mjaybird on February 25, 2013

      Ghost Recon online is a great shooter to play. you need to give it another try

  13. iluvgamez on February 20, 2013

    The Closed Beta was great but now…They reduced the game speed. They reduced melee attack speed. no bomb pick ups with ammopacks. All the fun things are gone but simple problems like many of us told them (like sometimes if u attack with ur melee weapon, u hear the attack sound and u may hit someone but the attack frame is missing. Counfusing as hell…) they couldnt get ride off. Some of you will for sure enjoy this game but for me, its not anymore the game i did enjoy back in CBT.
    Back to Quake again…

  14. Quake III... on February 20, 2013

    Yeah.. Everything in this game screams Quake III arena which is now called Quake Live.. Amazing how pimp I am at this game compared to games like CoD…

  15. matt on February 20, 2013

    seems like children talkin in this chat. this type of gameplay created the shooters today. shooters started off this way.

  16. Celestial Teapot on February 20, 2013

    I played it during the beta, it was fun, but unfortunately it was too lagy , hopefully the issue would be a past with this new live release.
    Looking forward to it.
    It does seem too fast paced, but when you play it, its really addictive and not as fast paced as it seems.

  17. ZhaoYun on February 20, 2013

    ya sorry good for the people who like it but it is WAYYYY too fast paced(as arnem said) for me as well

  18. rick admiraal on February 20, 2013

    i love this game ! when you start playing it you cant stop anymore

  19. Arnemmorpg on February 20, 2013
