Game description

    What type of game is Hive Rise?
    Hive Rise is an RTS MMOG: It's a real time strategy game that is played online with thousands of other players. In short concluded matches each player tries to achieve one of 12 possible objectives.
    Does it cost anything to play Hive Rise?
    No. You can play Hive Rise for free as long as you want. In addition to that you have the possibility to purchase more Coins in our online shop. If you don't want to do this, you can earn Coins by diligent playing.

Gameplay

    Is there a limit for buildings?
    A building counts as a unit. So your unit limit also narrows the number of buildings you can have. So it can be wise to sell buildings that are no longer needed in the course of the match.
    Many matches seem to have a downloadable hrg replay file. But only some of them provide an MP4 video clip. For which matches do you provide movie clips?
    We try to create a movie clip of each match of the daily Top 15. A movie clip remains on our servers for several days. If a match is pushed out of the Top 15 right after a very short while, it's possible that no movie clip could be rendered in this time. (At the moment the movie clips are rendered on a special server, you can't do it yourself.)
    What play modes are there?
    There are 12 play modes. We must admit though that this includes the tutorial. ;)

    After I made a change to the video settings Hive Rise won't start. What can I do?
    In your Start menu there's a link called "Hive Rise - secure mode". Use this to get the game running. You can then adjust the video settings.
    Do I need an internet connection to play Hive Rise?
    Hive Rise can only be played online on our servers in multiplayer mode. So you'll need a permanent internet connection that's fast enough for games.
