The game offers players an epic real-time space battle where players can modify and upgrade parts of their fleet as they see fit. As a sci-fi space battle game, upgrades are important to get the edge on enemies and come up victorious. Players will also need to collect energy, produce combat units and use their strategic tactical skills to conquer the space battlefield.
Players start off with two ships facing each other from the opposite ends of the map. Then, players will command their ship of up to 4 escort vessels and up to 6 combat units strategically. Energy will be consumed to produce units and use skills while the ship’s energy will regenerate overtime at varying rates dependent on the upgrades and environmental features.
As a 3D space-battle RTS, players will need to make their choice on which escort vessels or combat units to take into battle. There will be unlockables and upgrades for new units to strengthen their fleets based on each player’s play style. By releasing the right units or using the right skills at the right time, the battlefield will be easily conquered and victory can be assured. The game is heavily focused on PvP which comes in a variant of 5 maps; Arena, Kuiper Belt, Zoltarian Outpost, Ion Storm and Ensari Temple. Each of these maps have unique features which will require players to adapt their strategies.
There are a number of modes including a Story Mode, Ranking Mode and Tournament Mode. The Ranking Mode allows players to play against the world’s best in matched battles based on the players’ rank to climb up the rank ladder which players will be rewarded accordingly. While the Tournament Mode offers players to use pre-selected units and adaptability paired with tactics to compete. The top 32 Players from all over the world will compete for the Champion title each week. Players can also make predictions on the winners of matches for a chance to win in-game items.
