offers the launch of Drone Swarm
, a strategy adventure that puts you in
command of a swarm of 32,000 drones. Rather than drone on about this we'll just
present the Launch Trailer
and the announcement:
The innovative gameplay of Drone Swarm is embedded
in an exciting sci-fi story, that will take you to the frontiers of the known
galaxy and beyond.
In Drone Swarm, you slip into the role of Captain Carter, the commander of the
Argo, mankind’s only FTL ship. On your journey into the depths of an unknown
galaxy, your main mission is to jump from system to system and battle powerful
alien fleets in action-packed space battles. To this end, you need to take
control of the impressive swarm of 32,000 individually simulated drones. Destroy
enemy vessels, slam them into one another, block attacks and outsmart defenses.
Quickly analyze attacks of your adversaries in order to develop the best defense
strategy and to launch a strong counterattack.
To be successful, your tactics must always be adapted to the different types of
opponents you will encounter, because they too have different weapons, special
defenses, and unique behaviors in their arsenal. During the fast, action-packed
fights, players therefore should always keep a cool head and make use of all the
possibilities the drone swarm has to offer if they want to turn the tide of each
battle and claim their victory.
The strategy adventure is accompanied by a gripping sci-fi story
In the year 2118 the earth lies in ruins, after it was attacked and destroyed by
a gigantic swarm of alien drones. The psionics among the few surviving humans
found a way to control the drones and stop the attack. After the swarm was
finally under human control, the interstellar spaceship Argo could be built and
sent out with the mission to find a New Earth for mankind.
The universe and story of Drone Swarm is a result of a collaboration between
studio 451 Media from New York and the game's developer, stillalive studios. 451
Media, co-founded by star director Michael Bay, will publish Drone Swarm comics
that tell the prequel to the space adventure.
Next to a unique space soundtrack, English and German voiceovers contribute to
the very special atmosphere of Drone Swarm, that will take all players on a
journey far beyond the stars. Subtitles are also available in a total of 13
