RAM Pressure Gameplay

The plot of RAM Pressure is a hard science fiction, based on the idea of an alien invasion. After a meteorite storm, many of strange artefacts are fallen to the earth; among these pieces were even details of spaceships of other races and parts of battlespace stations. It's consequences of a distant galactic war between aliens. As you play, the truth is revealed to you that the government is hiding the fact of the alien impact, and trying to use their technologies for the total control of the planet's population.

Since the RAM Pressure is still in the early access, with many significant updates and changes which are coming soon, it's still difficult to talk about the actual gameplay. Developers provide players with an opportunity to lead a squad of trained soldiers. Your goal in this game is to explore the world, find the artefacts and alien technologies, and after that deliver it to your clients. The combat system is turn-based, with many dynamic elements. Players can choose one of 12 playable classes, with many customizable skills, different ranks of abilities and gameplay styles. It's possible to play solo plotline, or, if you don't want to play alone, you can join a clan and start the multiplayer adventure with other players, or unite into powerful alliances. Also, you can join one of the competing game factions. The developers are planning to release clan wars and complex system of the in-game community.

The mercenary characters of RAM Pressure have a health system, basic classes, and subclasses. Their abilities can be developed during the gameplay. If one of your group members was injured or died during the mission, you will have to heal it or wait until it can continue work. Injured characters have a severe skill debuff on the battlefield. Also, your soldiers can wear different equipment, which can also be improved and customized by various modules, obtained during the missions. The weapons have no level restrictions, but the game features stat restrictions, depending on the abilities of your heroes, such as intellect, or strength. The level of these ranks can be increased by training of your troops; the rate of increase depends on the activity that the fighter performs more often than others. For example, if your soldier wears a heavy weapon, his strength rank increases faster then other stats. Still, several types of guns require specific conditions to be equipped. For example, large-calibre sniper rifles will be available to the sniper only after obtaining specific skills. The appearance of your characters is entirely customizable, with many small details.

The maps in RAM Pressure are procedurally generated. It means that the environment changes for every match so that you always play on the new location. Various maps contain different weather conditions, terrain and strategic points, that can randomly change during the game. The game involves the tactical use of all terrain features. Also, the physics of the game allows to destroy the environment features, collapse structures and interact with the items on the map. Players can use cover and terrain features to gain an advantage over the opponent.
