Moderator Action: Merged with existing Starships thread.
Indeed. One of the screenshots has the name "Combat_HarmonyvsPurityFleet.jpg".
I agree. The description sounds like "Sid Meier's Pirates!" except in space.
You can clearly see a Supremacy fleet in the screenshots. I wonder how it will be, but if it's true that it's going to be released for ipad too, i am guessing the game will feel bland as a 4X, so it probably won't be exactly that.
I hope it will feature alien races, that eventually will get into CivBE, while the transhumanism is cool, variety on factions would improve more vastly from complete different races with assymetrical developments.
Yes, I think having harmony, purity and supremacy starships will be really cool.
That's unexpected and weird. It looks like a BE spinoff in an alternate universe where each of the 8 colonies landed on a different planet and developed for a while before discovering others. I can't say I'm hyped, and I'm a bit miffed that they're announcing this at a time when BE has only had one major patch and still feels half finished.
Well I'm excited anyway.
EuroGamer has a large German interview. It says, SMS will only be available as a digital download and probably be a smaller title. It looks like SMS continues the story of CivBE: After the "Big Mistake", mankind colonized several planets, not just one. In SMS you leave your planet with a fleet to explore the galaxy and meet the people who colonized the other planets. So you will meet leaders who picked different affinities. I would say you probably will be able to play SMS with a Civ you played in CivBE before, carrying over this Civ to SMS.
Meh. Is my reaction.
From the interview, it sounds like the victory types will be very similar to Civ:
Given that WoT is a pretty good game with a fair f2p system (compared to many others) I am still looking forward for a new Master of Orion. let's be honest, it just can't be worse than MoO3.
Starships... available for mobile phones. Nuff said. I'd rather take any f2p that is tailored for PC and not dumbed down for the Farmville masses.
It's official: BE is an orphan. I hope you like it the way it is because that's all you're gonna get.
Yeah a simpler game is not what I am looking for either. But I liked seeing the supremacy warships in space
In this pic are all the sponsors listed the BE equivalents?
According to Pete, it has a few gameplay features from Ace Patrol, but will have more strategy involved.
Yes, looks that way. If you look closely, you can recognize the same leaders as in BE, just stylized with their full affinity look. Starting from the bottom, we have Daoming Sochua, Samatar Barre, unknown, Rejinaldo de Alencar, Elodie and Suzanne Fielding.
Yes, apparently the firing angle will matter.
I suspect that starship combat will be a big factor in how "fun" the game is.
What leads you to this conclusion?
This looks like what is passing for a BE expansion pack, as far as I can tell. That's the only way this announcement makes sense to me.
Well it looks like a rather small game, also the early release (spring) seems to go with it, and it works on an iPad. Looking at the screenshot there is very little UI.
Also it looks like GC3 a lot but I feel GC3 wil be by far the meatier game.
Maybe it will be cool who knows but I doubt it will be a big release. Eitherway nothing was shown almost on these previews.
The USA TODAY article says it will 'arrive via digital download':
So... Steam story only, no retail box?
