Battleline: Steel Warfare Overview

Battleline: Steel Warfare is a 3D free-to-play strategic tank shooter that offers a collection of real-world tanks with researchable skills, upgradeable stats, and slots for items. The gameplay is a unique blend of real-time strategy and MOBAs, creating an intense PvP game reliant on skill. A game is won once a team pushes and holds the battle line at their enemy's base for 10 seconds, making it imperative to equip skills that damage and control enemies, as well as protect allies. The game's skills can be upgraded by using the Facilities system that dispatches researchers into advancing a particular skill, offering increasingly advanced builds as players rank up.
