Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock – Announced by Slitherine Studios
Strategy powerhouses, Slitherine Studios & Black Lab Games, known for their plethora of military strategy video games, are taking their talents into out space and into the First Cylon War with the announcement of their newest game, Battle Star Galactica: Deadlock.
BattleStar Galactica began as a sci-fi TV series, born from the excitement created from Star Wars and Star Trek. In this series, the remaining humans fight an endless war against a vicious robot race, known as the Cylons. The Cylons have destroyed the colony worlds belonging to humans, and so the humans fight off the fiendish robotic invaders while attempting to find a new home. The human fleet, while tight-knit, is also very formidable. The series received a new, incredibly well-told incarnation with the BattleStar Galactica SyFy series, which lasted for several seasons and spawned multiple spin-offs.
In Deadlock, players will take their tactical skills and strategic thinking to battle the Cylon threat.
Players will have access to a massive space ship, the Diadalos, which essentially acts like a dry dock. Form there, players will be able to construct and deploy their vessels in the defense of mankind and the Twelve Colonies. Players will have access to an incredibly wide variety of space craft, form one-seater Viper interceptors to massive Battlestars. Players can expect deep turn-based strategy combat, with a solid narrative, featuring old and returning characters in a wll-thought story.
Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock deploys later this summer for PC and consoles.
