Etherium – Futuristic Real-time Strategy – New Details + Debut Trailer

Focus Home Interactive has revealed some new information about Tindalos Interactive upcoming PC strategy game, Etherium, and released a new trailer for it. Etherium futuristic real-time strategy game developed exclusively for PC in which three empires are locked in a ruthless struggle to control the etherium, a mysterious and precious resource found only on a handful of planets.

The game’s 3 playable factions are: the Humans from the Consortium, the Vectides and the Intari. These three races wage an all-out war for Etherium in the following video composed of animatics and ingame sequences.

In Etherium, these three empires are locked in a ruthless struggle to control the etherium, a mysterious and precious resource found only on a handful of planets. Take the lead of one of the three factions, each with its individual characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, technologies and special skills such as climate control, espionage and precognition.

The solo campaign in Etherium is non-linear: you are free to decide how your conquests progress. Manage your resources, expand your colonies and extend your control of the map to assemble an army capable of crushing your opponents. Epic battles will ensue between formidable armies comprising numerous units: infantry, tanks, aircraft, and even gigantic colossi of war several dozens of meters high; real machines of destruction! You will also use scientific research to develop a tech tree enabling you to unlock new units and upgrades, access new structures to develop your colony and to use new special skills.

Etherium has a unique and dynamic weather system that has a direct impact on your strategy. Use a sandstorm to approach the enemy base unseen, or mount a rearguard attack by crossing a freezing river. Each of the 7 planets has diverse environments, and varied terrain that will force you to adapt your strategy: arid desert, icy worlds, island archipelagos.

Finally, Etherium will also test your strategic skills in online modes, where up to four players can compete simultaneously.

Etherium will be available early beginning of next year.

Enjoy!
