Matrix Games and Tri Synergy have partnered up to bring X-COM fans something familiar but still very different

Matrix Games and Tri Synergy, Inc. (www.trisynergy.com) are excited to announce that they have reached a publishing agreement for the online distribution of UFO: Extraterrestrials. Matrix Games has agreed to use their fast and reliable digital download service to bring the highly anticipated tactical/grand strategy blend to hard drives all over the world.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “UFO: Extraterrestrials will no doubt serve as a highly anticipated release for fans of the X-COM series. With its streamlined interface and smooth learning curve, UFO: Extraterrestrials will be a fantastic addition to the Matrix Games lineup. We’re very pleased to be working with Tri Synergy and Chaos Concepts to put this great sequel on gamers’ hard drives.”

 

Shane Nestler from Tri Synergy added, “The excitement has been steadily building over the course of UFO: Extraterrestrials’ development. We’re positively elated that we’ve teamed up with Matrix Games again to assure the maximum availability of UFO: Extraterrestrials to everyone that’s been eagerly awaiting this title.”

 

UFO: Extraterrestrials is a futuristic real-time/turn-based strategy blend set on the fictional planet of Esperanza in 2025. Having made a bloody first contact with a strange form of life from another planet, the player is thrust into the tough position of leading the defense of this isolated planet against the never-ending assault of these hostile invaders. To accomplish this, the player will have at their disposal squads of soldiers, light and heavy support combat vehicles, robots and air units located in bases throughout the Esperanza. Only through controlling the skies with intense real-time fighter-to-fighter combat and utilizing tactical-level factors like terrain and cover will the player win fierce battles and, eventually, the war against the immutable malevolence that is this alien onslaught!

Pike & Shot is now available!

Thursday, October 16, 2014

"Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” (Oliver Cromwell – English military and political leader)

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for religious, political or dynastic causes. The greatest powers of that period were regularly involved in conflicts and struggles to increase their dominance over the continent. Some countries have also to deal with inner tensions and are torn apart between factions. War is in the air. But war has changed. Due to the development of new technologies, traditional medieval tactics have been substituted with a totally different approach to effectively utilise the new formations and weapons.
