Slitherine diffuse aujourdhui une courte bande-annonce présentant, belle surprise pour les fans de ce fameux univers de SF, un jeu de batailles spatiales tactiques en 3D simulant la première guerre contre les Cylons. Particulièrement la période où après avoir annihilé brutalement le haut commandement de la flotte, ces robots révoltés très belliqueux et s’étant fixés pour objectif d’éradiquer l’humanité sont à deux doigts d’atteindre leur but.
A noter qu’il s’agit ici de l’univers de Battlestar Galactica tel qu’on l’avait vu dans la très sympathique série télé diffusée entre 2004 et 2009.
The Cylons have rebelled
A new strategy game coming this summer to PC and consoles
“Every man has to decide for themselves which side they are on”
Commander William Adama, S. 1 – Ep.3
Slitherine and Black Lab Games, in partnership with Universal Brand Development, are thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Battlestar Galactica Deadlock™ available on PC and consoles this summer. In the exciting new game, based on the award winning sci-fi universe produced by Universal Cable Productions and aired on SYFY for four seasons, created by Glen A. Larson, players will be able to build their fleet, fight tactical battles, and strategically defend the Twelve Colonies during the First Cylon War.
“Everyone at Black Lab Games is a big fan of Battlestar Galactica”, said Paul Turbett, managing director of the development studio. “Our main goal is to give the vast community of fans and followers a game that is deeply rooted in the franchise’s values. We are creating a game that tells new stories, but with familiar places, events and characters. And all of it will be captured in the depth that our strategy game will offer”.
Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is a deep strategy game that also features a strong narrative with an extensive cast of characters, both new and from the existing lore. Fans will find all their favorite ships from Vipers, Raptors and Battlestars, to Cylon Raiders and Basestars, in addition to a brand-new range of ships designed exclusively for the game.
“Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is one of the most exciting projects we have ever worked on”, said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine group. “The Battlestar Galactica universe has an incredibly loyal following and very high expectations. As a publisher, we understand what it means to work on a project that has to please a specific audience while delivering a deep strategic experience”.
Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is set to release this summer on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Check out the official product page for further information and to keep up-to-date with all future announcements.
