MEET TINKER!

AVAILABLE THIS MONDAY, JUNE 17th!

Tinker is an all new character coming to Forge as our next piece of FREE DLC. The Tinker plays similar to an engineer class and will have a big impact on how Forge is played, just like the Ravager.

We're still putting the finishing touches on the character, but I'm going to start leaking teasery info about our latest and greatest Forge character over the next few weeks leading up to launch.

Here's a large animated GIF I made showing a basic 360 around the character while they perform their M1 attack.

I'll be posting more new content here in the upcoming weeks, so check back regularly and let me know what you think.

A NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHES...

Looks absolutely amazing, this fits extremely well within Forge. I am more interested in her moves though. But sadly I dislike the name ''Tinkerer''. I prefer it being called ''Tinker''. Sorry for this repost. Could you possibly delete the above one?

Though i really love the Tinkerer, i do hope there will be some nice skins or genderchange cosmetics available. Even if i adore a class, it tends to be hard for me to play anything female :P

I am so happy it's female! It's hard for me to get into Male characters. So I know that feel.

Post deleted. I'm going to try to get some video outlining a few of her moves out very soon. Tinkerer's name has been changed to Tinker!

As you know, we are definitely planning skins and mentioned that we were interested in genderswaps as well. These won't be in the latest patches, but it's something we're keen on doing. As a side note, I'm pretty proud about the strong female characters we have in Forge - I would definitely like to see more games following our lead.

Community support for our upcoming features has been really tremendous. I hope everyone enjoys the cool new stuff that's right around the corner!

Gosh you guys do amazing work! Ive gotten one person to buy this game, but it is hard to convince more friends to invest in it because I suck so badly... I hope this thing blows up because you guys deserve some serious accommodations for the very well polished game you have created.

Really quick, not sure if you guys are doing anything like this, but I thought instead of just straight up "Skins" if people earned weapon and armor pieces, or could purchase them with game points or whatever (cosmetic only of course). Just a thought, because since its like pvp RPG game, thought that would be really neat.

Also customisable facial hair, on both male and females. Nothing gets gamers hyped up for a game then a girl with a goaty. But in true fact, I am all up for facial hair. I just think a pyro with a black beard would be awesome.

Really I feel tinkerer was more real tinker just sounds more like an action than a class

Looking good though

Its m1 is ranged but if it works like an engineer then the class will likely have to be close to the front lines to be effective.

The Tinker is a sort of hybrid between ranged and melee, like RentableDwarf said you need to be on the frontlines and can't be as far away as pathfinder / pyromancer can.

Just posted a teaser video of Tinker's Cata Pad and Armored Booth: http://www.playforge...oth/#entry47080

The plan is to make teaser videos covering all of the different moves up until launch, so let me know what else you'd like to learn about.

Not sure about your first and third questions, but yes, barricades can be placed parallel with other barricades... :)
