Battleswarm: Field of Honor was a free-to-play first-person shooter/real-time strategy video game developed by Game World Tech.[4] Battleswarm featured an item mall which used Reality Gap's e-currency called 'MetaTIX'. Battleswarm was officially launched on November 19, 2009.

On July 1, 2011 Reality Gap announced they were to shut down game servers, while 'in the process of a sale to a new company who specializes in children's games'.[5] On July 16, 2011 the game servers were officially shut down.

Plot[edit]

Battleswarm takes place on a foreign planet during a catastrophic war between humans, and a race of giant bugs.

Gameplay[edit]

Battleswarm had a unique game play concept where it pitted two genres of gameplay against one another in a survival for the fittest. The humans were played by first and third person shooters, while the bugs were commanded by a real time strategist.

The game had both PvP and PvE gameplay, and had a large selection of game types and maps.
