Indie Intergalactic Strategy Game Powerhouse Stardock has Announced an Early Access Release of Siege of Centauri on April 16!
Siege of Centauri is the next offering from Stardock and will be releasing into Early Access on April 16 to allow fans to give input into game mechanics, pacing, and balance. The game is set in the Ashes of Singularity universe and is a Tower Defense map game.
Stardock Games’ lead designer, Derek Paxton released a statement: “With tens of thousands of enemy machines pouring toward your base, we want to give players a very new experience of what it means to defend themselves against overwhelming odds. The benefits between a rail gun that fires one deadly round every ten seconds and a high-speed plasma arc array that does low damage, but to dozens of enemies at once is obvious to players, especially when they see a huge mothership surrounded by hundreds of escorts coming at them.”
The press release continues:
- Defend Centauri: Gain access to new technologies and fight off enemy invaders from region to region.
- Deploy your Defenses: An arsenal of emergency rapid deployment defenses are at your disposal. Use them in strategic locations to halt the swarm’s progress.
- Strike From Above: When all else fails, use your ship’s formidable capabilities from orbit to destroy your enemies.”
The early access release price on Steam will be $9.99 and players can currently add the game to their wishlist. Stardock is also offering a founder’s program at www.siegeofcentauri.com.
