This update also includes an updated version of .NET and DirectX, which is required for Armada 2526 to function properly.
David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Armada 2526 was already a highly addictive hit right out of the box, but the new update further smoothes and improves nearly all areas of the game! This update is a major step in Ntronium’s commitment to listening to its fans and making Armada 2526 all that it can be!”
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.
