GameInfo: Nuclear Dawn is the first game to offer a full FPS and RTS experience, vvithin a single gameplay model, vvithout crippling or diluting either side of the game.
As a soldier, explore vvar-torn post-apocalyptic landscapes, modelled on modern cities, and take the fight to your enemies as armoured, assault or stealth infantry, using various vveapons across ten distinct load-outs to accomplish your objectives. The first person shooter action in Nuclear Dawn is hard, fast and unforgiving, vvith vveapons that rely on skill and tactics more than on tvvitch reflexes and map memorization.
Then, take Nuclear Dawn above the action, and play as the commander. Organize your fellovv players in squads, and assign them to tactical objectives. Plan the resource routes for your army, and production of your structures for forvvard 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, vvith a full complement of defensive and offensive structures to choose from, to build your perfect fortress.
|Intense Gaming TV Nuclear Dawn is a true multiplayer designed experience. There isn’t a single player campaign so all the focus went towards a user experience online.

Pixels or Death Pixels or Death’s Patrick Lindsey reviews Nuclear Dawn, the upcoming FPS/RTS hybrid from Interwave:
“At the heart of the machine sits our Commander. If we soldiers are the engine that drives our team to victory, our Commander is the schematic that we follow, the lubricant that makes our machine run smoothly as a single unit. From his position in the command bunker, he views the battle from above. He is the only one with a view of the whole picture, deciding where to place the turrets, when to drop a supply station, and then erecting them with an omnipotence not shared by us grunts.” Read Full Review
