Back to News Listing Armada 2526 Now Available from Matrix Games!

Posted: Wednesday, November 25, 2009 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

The highly anticipated new 4x space strategy game has come out of hyperspace and is ready for action!

Matrix Games and Ntronium Games (www.ntronium.com) are thrilled to announce that Armada 2526 is now available for purchase from Matrix Games!  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. 

 

Now gamers can enjoy the 4x turn-based strategy / real time tactical blend that The Wargamer has called “the spiritual successor to the Total War series in Sci-fi form.” Armada 2526 was also recently well-received at IGN as it was called a possible “compelling alternative to the reigning kings of the 4X sci-fi game.”

 

In addition to accolades in the press, two trailers, plenty of screenshots, and even a manual excerpt are also available to give would-be galactic commanders a feel for Armada 2526. To mark the occasion of the game’s release, another two dozen screenshots are also available for perusing!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Armada 2526 is one of those games where ‘one more turn’ ends up being many more hours of quality sci-fi strategy gaming in the blink of an eye.  Between gorgeous space battles and a rich turn-based strategic layer, a very strong AI and galaxy size mainly limited by your hardware, both gamers who love space games and those who have never tried them will see something in Armada 2526.”

 

Expand your Empire, Conquer the Galaxy!

 

In Armada 2526, 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.  Armada 2526 was also design from the ground up with the AI in mind and it can use all the features of the game that are available to the human player.  The result is a much stronger opponent than in many other games and Armada 2526 can scale from small 2 player skirmishes to enormous galaxies with dozens of alien factions, up to the maximum your hardware can handle.
