Developer Fading Suns' latest computer game is now available via Steam.
A follow up to the 1997's Emperor of the Fading Suns, Noble Armada: Lost Worlds is a real-time strategy PC title based on HDI's classic Noble Armada tabletop miniatures game.
The game is set in the Fading Suns Universe where the suns themselves are dying and humanity battles to revive its lost greatness (or just take what is left). In this sci-fi RTS game, the five great Royal Houses dominate human space as they battle each other for control of the greatest resource - humanity itself.
“We’ve had a great time tweaking the established RTS conventions," says lead game designer Andrew Greenberg. "Movement is not just point and click, as players have to take into account the unique physics of space. In addition, we’ve gone for a pausable real-time format that allows players to take time strategizing before unleashing a hail of blaster fire.”
In the game, payers can choose from a wide variety of missions involving five different houses. They can also design their own battles in the game’s Skirmish mode or using the built-in Mission Editor. There they choose what ships they and their enemies command, as well as the victory conditions. Fading Suns says this computer game version of Noble Armada takes the miniatures game and turns it into a fast-paced strategy game. It utilizes the original miniature game mechanics while taking advantage of the best features of its new digital home.
Noble Armada: Lost Worlds is available for PC via Steam for $19.99 USD.
