Real-Time Team based 2D Wacky Competitive Arena Shooter "The Ultimatest Battle" Now Available on Steam

Up-and-coming French independent studio Ediogames expands reach to English speaking players with The Ultimatest Battle

Paris, September 12, 2017 – French Independent studio  Ediogames is proud to announce that team-based arena shooter “The Ultimatest Battle” is now available on  Steam. The Ultimatest Battle (UB) is a free-to-play fast-paced addictive competitive 2D real-time arena shooter blending elements from the best strategy, shooter and arena brawling games such as Worms, Team Fortress 2 and Super Smash Brothers. The result is a unique content and experience where players rely heavily on their technique and coordination to blast their way to victory.

In the “UB” universe, players embody small zany characters, called “Nubs”, who are armed to the teeth and possess various weapons depending on the character’s class. While progressing through the game, each “Nub” gradually builds his arsenal, increasing the gameplay strategy level when the choice of weapons becomes critical.

 “We are very excited to bring the UB experience to an English speaking audience for the first time. Since the beta was launched in France, more than 30,000 accounts were created and we are eager to receive new users’ feedback from all over the world, says Nicolas Eskenazi, game designer at Ediogames. Furthermore, it is important to stress out that paid content in the game does not increase the players’ character strength or level. The Ultimatest Battle is an Anti “Pay to win” game and Ediogames bring fairness into the gameplay and between players when it comes to in-game purchases.”

Players compete as a team in various game modes in a 2D environment almost entirely destructible :

NORMAL MODES

  • DeathMatch (DM): Victory goes to whichever team can get the most kills in 5 minutes.
  • Control Point (CP): Occupy the control point and hold your position.?
  • Attack – Defense (CPS): Capture or defend three control points.?
  • Save The Princess (STP): Hunt down or protect the Princess, controlled by a player.
  • Double Princess (DP): Take down the enemy Princess while defending your own.
  • Arena (ARN): Deathmatch with a limited number of lives.
SPECIAL MODES
  • Zombie Mode (ZM): Wipe out the infected!?
  • Randomizer (WTF): In this mode, you have a random class with randomly selected gear.?
  • Versus Boss (VSB): Fight or play as the Boss.?
  • Harvest (HAR): Collect the most resources and bring them back to your base.?
  • Roulette ($$$): Three special rules are added to the rules of another game mode, for parties always more rich in twists and turns.
Ediogames emphasize the importance of community by giving players a variety of tools to evolve in a universe where the social element is encouraged. All battles are played cooperatively; certain game modes are also based on the survival of a character designated at the start of the game.

EXCHANGES BETWEEN PLAYERS 

The trading system allows diverse internal trade between players. A special game mode is even devoted entirely to exchanges so that players can trade peacefully.

THE GUILDS 

The Guilds are groups of players who battle under the same banner. Any player can join an existing Guild, but to create one he or she must be (at least) level 10 and hold a Premium account.
