Back to News Listing Armada 2526 Gets an Update

Posted: Wednesday, October 06, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Plenty of fixes and a new race and faction have made first contact!

Matrix Games and Ntronium Games (www.ntronium.com) are pleased to release the new comprehensive 1.4.0.0 update for their space turn-based strategy/real-time tactical blend, Armada 2526. The update includes many bug fixes, a host of minor improvements to the AI for both the strategic and tactical layer, and two new features: a brand new race and faction, The Gray Order, who come complete with eight new ship models and random faction selection so factions can be randomly chosen when setting up a custom game.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The new Gray Order faction is an interesting twist to Armada 2526. Ntronium has done a great job with these updates and we’re proud to work with them to breathe new life into this great game as it nears its one year anniversary since release!  If you haven’t already taken a look at Armada 2526, now is a great time to jump in!”

Expand your Empire, Conquer the Galaxy!

Armada 2526 is the heir to one of the first great space empire-building games and it is the product of veteran game designer and developer R.T. Smith, of “Total War” series fame.  You guide your race from its first interstellar journeys, until it becomes a mighty galactic empire.  Along the way, you'll explore the galaxy, conduct research, diplomacy and trade, found new colonies, maneuver mighty star fleets, and fight epic battles.  Create bustling colonies on foreign worlds to build powerful fleets, construct advanced buildings and research facilities that will help you master space and defend your civilization!  In a close race for victory, alliances forged through bartering and good will can help tip the balance of power in your favor as alien empires seek power and glory at your expense.  

Powerful tutorial and advisor features help any would-be galactic commander get up to speed quickly, and with endless possible strategies Armada 2526 offers many different strategies to best your alien foes.

Unlike many games in this genre, Armada 2526 focuses on providing a game that can be finished in a reasonable time and emphasizes decisive strategy over micro-management.

Get the update here. This update is comprehensive and will bring any previous version of Armada 2526 to version 1.4.0.0. Get more information on Armada 2526 from its official product page.
