SG Bulletin: Slitherine Announces Battlestar Galactica Deadlock16 May 2017 0
Slitherine Ltd. have announced a new tactical space combat game set in the Battlestar Galactica universe is FTL-jumping onto PC, Xbox One & PS4 later this year.
Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock [Steam] throws the player into the heart of the First Cylon War in an original story developed in conjunction with Universal. Developer Black Lab Games (creators of Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy) will put you in charge of the entire Colonial Fleet after a catastrophe leaves the chain of command in ruins, and the Cylons on the verge of victory.
Deadlock is a fully 3D tactical space-battle strategy game; both player and AI plot moves, issue orders and then resolve at the same time (known as 'WEGO'). Control fleets of iconic vessels, like the Galactica itself, launch Viper and Raptor squadrons to engage in close-quarter dogfights and even take charge of the big picture via the War Room. Much like Star Hammer, there will also be RPG-like elements connected to the single-player experience – recruit officers, keep the Quorum of Twelve unified, and fight the Cylons wherever you can.
Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is scheduled for release in the Summer and will also feature online multiplayer in the form of 1v1 skirmishes. Anyone interested in signing up to join the beta can go here.
