Communiqué

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, March 2 nd 2017 – 1C is pleased to announce that Codex of Victory, a sci-fi turn-based strategy with real-time base building elements, will be released on March 16 th 2017 (Windows, Linux and Mac OS) through Steam and other digital stores. Codex of Victory’s developers are Ino-Co Plus, experienced creators of Warlock, Majesty 2 and Elven Legacy.

Codex of Victory pits players, as star lords defending human territories on distant planets, against the armies of the transhuman Augments. Players expand their underground HQ to manufacture and upgrade an army of massive, advanced drone units before dropping them into turn-based battles in an interplanetary war for humankind. Fusing two closely-related strategic gameplay types, Codex of Victory will keep players going throughout the game’s extensive singleplayer campaign. Further hours of gameplay can be had from head-to-head online combat, complete with detailed unit customization options.

While Codex of Victory gets its final polishing before release on March 16 th, the press are welcome to request keys for a full pre-release review version. Contact us by email or go directly to Keymailer.co.

About the game

Human society has been divided. On one side, the natural course of human evolution has been disrupted. What started as an attempt to adapt to the harsh conditions of outer space and hostile planets, led to the creation of a weird race of transhuman cyborgs – the Augments. Driven by a desire to ‘liberate’ ordinary humans from the limitations of their wholly organic bodies, the Augments have launched a full-scale attack. Now we must defend our territory and fight back, to save our Kingdoms and all of humanity as we know it!

Codex of Victory features an extensive story-driven, single-player campaign that tasks you with building and commanding a hi-tech army of drone vehicles, tanks and robots. The campaign offers an exciting mix of real-time base building, global strategic planning and turn-based combat. Travelling between planets and territories, your sole task is to stop the Augments.

Inspired by classics of the strategy genre, the base building element involves expanding your underground HQ in real-time. Collect room blueprints, build factories, research centers, workshops, laboratories and other facilities, to prepare for battles ahead. Global tactical oversight comes from your Planetary map, on which you’ll instantly see where your armies need to be deployed.

Engage in tactical turn-based combat on hex-mapped battlefields. Select your units and upgrades, deploy them to the battlefield using the terrain to your advantage and test your tactical skills in each mission. As you progress through the battles of the main storyline and the various randomly-generated side missions, you’ll gain access to over 25 units. Each type of unit comes in countless variations, thanks to a diverse range of upgrades and add-on modules. Build your best and put them to the test against the incoming Augments!

  • Exciting combination of turn-based combat and real-time base building
  • 20+ hours of story-based singleplayer campaign
  • Online multiplayer battles with detailed army customization options
  • 25+ unique units, each with countless variations

  1. Un jeu très sympa. A noter l’existence d’une démo (pas facile à trouver, sur la page Steam).
    Outre l’absence de « skirmish », et le fait que je ne sois pas très sûr de la rejouabilité d’une campagne solo très scriptée, le principal défaut que je lui trouverais est une absence quasi-totale de hasard, qui n’intervient que sur l’existence ou non de dégâts critiques, la probabilité de touche en attaque étant toujours de 100%, et les dégâts fixes suivant la puissance d’attaque de l’unité. On finit par se retrouver avec une sorte de jeu d’échec où les pièces auraient des points de vie : pas trop mon truc, je préfère personnellement la « logique floue », où l’attaque n’a qu’une certaine probabilité de succès (dans l’idéal variable selon les caractéristiques, et de l’attaquant, et du défenseur), et induit des dégâts aléatoires.
    Cela étant, cette absence de flou permet sans doute de modéliser bien plus facilement une A.I potable qui compense par sa puissance de calcul et sa possibilité de comparer « mathématiquement » toutes les alternatives d’attaques possibles sa moindre vision « stratégique ».

    • Merci pour la précision sur la démo, je l’avais manqué. A priori elle date de septembre dernier (pendant la phase Early Access), mais a peut-être été mise à jour la semaine dernière. Dans tous les cas en effet un bon moyen pour essayer ce « petit » jeu.
