Gambitious Digital Entertainment announces a February 2nd release date for
Diluvion, Arachnid Games' submarine exploration action/adventure game for
Windows and OS X. They have opened up preorders on
Steam, and celebrate the
occasion with this trailer.
Here's word on the game and its preorder incentives:
Set in a vast
undersea world after a flood traps humanity beneath a ceiling of impenetrable
ice, Diluvion lets players captain their own submersibles on a quest for riches
and survival. There are nine unique vessels to command, each upgradeable with
new weapons and specialized crew members to defend against hostile ships or
other terrors lurking beneath the waves in real-time 3D combat.
But fighting isn’t the only key to staying alive; players will also have to
manage food and oxygen, salvage and trade loot, collect bounties, and discover
the depths of a dangerous world brimming with uncharted harbors, factions,
stories and secrets. Captains can even build their own home bases of operation
to shelter their fleets while growing in notoriety and wealth.
Diluvion is available for pre-order now, and players who purchase it before
release will receive a 15% discount, the Captain’s Journal, which documents the
game’s rich lore, and a pre-order exclusive “Deringer” submarine to use in-game.
A Collector's Edition version of the game will also be available at launch and
will include a comprehensive digital art book, an exclusive playable submarine
called “Manta,” and a downloadable copy of the game’s original soundtrack,
composed by Michael Ward.
