Take a look at a few key game mechanics for the highly anticipated sci-fi strategy game

Matrix Games and Ntronium Games (www.ntronium.com) are pleased to release a sneak peek of the manual for their highly anticipated turn based strategy/real time tactical blend, Armada 2526. This manual excerpt offers some information about colony management on the turn-based strategy layer and some details about formations and ship organization on the real time tactical layer.

 

More insight and design philosophy details are also available from Three Moves Ahead’s recent podcast interview with Armada 2526 creator, Bob Smith. Be sure to check that out for more info as well!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Armada 2526 offers a rich and detailed sci-fi 4x experience with plenty of challenging gameplay and a streamlined interface. Fans of this particular genre will find that Armada 2526 brings them the style of gaming they love with plenty of innovation as well.”

 

Expand your Empire, Conquer the Galaxy!

 

Armada 2526 is the heir to one of the first great space empire-building games and it is the product of veteran game designer and developer R.T. Smith, of “Total War” series fame.  You guide your race from its first interstellar journeys, until it becomes a mighty galactic empire.  Along the way, you'll explore the galaxy, conduct research, diplomacy and trade, found new colonies, maneuver mighty star fleets, and fight epic battles.  Create bustling colonies on foreign worlds to build powerful fleets, construct advanced buildings and research facilities that will help you master space and defend your civilization!  In a close race for victory, alliances forged through bartering and good will can help tip the balance of power in your favor as alien empires seek power and glory at your expense.  

 

Powerful tutorial and advisor features help any would-be galactic commander get up to speed quickly, and with endless possible strategies Armada 2526 offers many different strategies to best your alien foes.

 

Unlike many games in this genre, Armada 2526 focuses on providing a game that can be finished in a reasonable time and emphasizes decisive strategy over micro-management.
