What The Block You Gonna Do?

Build. Destroy. Attack. Defend. Tunnel. Trap. Catapult. Poison. Slice. Detonate. Sabotage. Win. Face off in an FPS battle where everything you do has devastating impact. Five of you, five of them, pick a hero, ready up! No game’s the same - it’s time to Block N Load.


Block N Load is a 5v5 that takes a bit from Minecraft, a little of Team Fortress and mashes it together for a battle of destruction. Face off in a tactical battle where everything you build can be destroyed. Start the game by gathering your team and fortifying your fortress using a vast array of devices, blocks and other materials. Build up your defenses, then head for the opposing team and destroy theirs. Create tunnels or catapult over walls. You can strafe u. Pick one of several different heroes to play. It will never the same game twice.

Block N Load was actually a second attempt at this type of game. The predecessor, Ace of Spades was developed by Bed Aksoy and release in beta in 2011. He sold it to Jagex, the studio that brought us Runescape, who remade the game and sold it on Steam in 2012. Unfortunately it did not sell well. Alex Horton of Jagex, whos credits include GTA 3 and Rockstar, chose to redesign the game using the basic ideas and Jagex now has the new game ready for beta testing.
