Demo available for Solar Warden; space combat game from Star Citizen’s ex-lead technical designer

Polar Zenith has released a demo for its six-degrees-of-freedom space combat game, Solar Warden. This demo will allow players to take control of the Solar Warden fleet defending planet Earth against a short number of incoming waves of meteors filled with the hostile space based aliens – the Silicoid.

This short Demo demonstrates the core functionalities of Commanding your fleets around Earth’s Orbit as well as being able to take control of your vessels directly via the Telepresence system. Victory can be achieved by destroying the Worm on the final wave.

Solar Warden uses a Six-Degrees-Of-Freedom flight system, married to Newtonian flight physics to be overcome and exploited in action-packed dogfights. Your ship’s thrusters can be set to several modes that are suitable to either pursuit, dog fighting and even navigating the tight corners inside massive asteroids, navigating the mazes within and blasting it clear of hostiles.

Each ship’s weapon hardpoints can be fully customized to use a wide array of weaponry like heavy lasers, heat seeking missiles, rail-guns, and many more. As you research new tech, you’ll be able to further upgrade your ship with improved countermeasures, shield generators and improved power plants to give you more maneuverability and firepower.

Those interested can download the demo from here.

Have fun!
