Back to News Listing Armada 2526: Supernova Now Available!

Posted: Thursday, April 14, 2011 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

The hotly awaited expansion to this space strategy hit is now out!

Matrix Games and Ntronium Games (www.ntronium.com) are thrilled to announce that Armada 2526: Supernova is now available for purchase. The first expansion for their acclaimed 4x turn-based strategy/real time tactical blend, Armada 2526, the Supernova release comes hot on the heels of a recently released trailer and pack of screenshots. Please note: The physical version of Armada 2526: Supernova will not be available until tomorrow (Friday, 4/15/11).

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Armada 2526: Supernova improves the original Armada 2526 experience in many ways but it also adds so much more content and many new layers of strategy. Even if all the new features aren’t enough, now you can face off against your friends via LAN or PBEM for the ultimate challenge!”

Armada 2526: Supernovagives you 4X more. More to explore, more to exploit, more to exterminate and expands you’re gaming horizons by letting you challenge your friends via LAN or PBEM play.  Read on for more feature information!

There are new star and planet types to discover, and more than 30 special features to make each star system distinctive. You may encounter tachyon storms, psychic plants, primitives or find abandoned alien technology that advances your own research. Two new races, with their own ships and special characteristics, await your discovery.  Befriend them, play as them, or exterminate them as you wish.

A new trade system lets you construct networks to trade valuable commodities between the stars, both between your own worlds, and with other players. Alien relics, rare minerals, tourists, or even natural anti-matter, your freighters carry them all. Choke an enemy with trade embargoes, or blockade their planets with stealth ships operating behind the lines. But trade and tourism bring less welcome visitors too. The new espionage system lets you plant spies to gather information or steal technological secrets, or drop special forces that can sabotage defenses before an attack.

Fifty new technologies open up new strategies and tactics. Confound your enemies with hard to detect stealth ships, jam their missiles with electronic warfare, build fighter stations to defend your planets, and blitz defenses with stormtroopers. Research Gaia to make everyone happy, or grind them under your heel with a variety of more powerful warships and upgrades weapons.

Armada’s simultaneous order system makes it ideal game for multi-player action. Now you can crush your friends playing over LAN (local area networks) or PBEM (play by email).

Machines are taking control! Legions of Steel announced!

Monday, March 02, 2015

The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do.” (B. F. Skinner– American Psychologist)

Directly inspired from the board game of the same name, Legions of Steel is a fast-paced and thrilling tactical game. Squads of machines and humans fight hard in the inhospitable undergrounds of the production facilities. With the one shot, one kill philosophy adopted by the developers, every move, line of sight, and action point becomes a resource of strategic importance.

Today we are happy to announce that the game will be available in May 2015 on both PC and iPad! Initially announced for late 2014, developer Studio Nyx decided to extend the development period in order to provide more content into the game, and especially nerve-racking multiplayer modes that should seduce fans of competitive and intense matches!
