Today, videogame publisher Iceberg Interactive and UNIGINE Corp., have announced that the naval strategy game ‘Oil Rush’ for PC, Mac and Linux, has gone gold. The game will be available for digital download starting today on various portals throughout the world. Iceberg Interactive will release the boxed retail version of Oil Rush on 24 February 2012 in the UK, Benelux and Scandinavia, with German speaking territories to follow with a fully localized version on 23 March 2012.
Iceberg CEO Erik Schreuder says:
“We are thrilled to see that Oil Rush is now finished and look forward to the multi-platform release on PC, Mac and Linux in the coming days and weeks. Oil Rush is a very addictive and great looking strategy game that gives the genre a boost and a twist at the same time. UNIGINE has already proven a valuable partner for our company and I can surely see us extending our business in the near future, so keep an eye out.”
Oil Rush is a real-time naval strategy game that combines the strategic challenge of a classic RTS with the sheer fun of Tower Defence, while featuring state-of-the-art visuals. The game is based on group control: the player doesn’t have to micro-manage every unit but has control over all important aspects of tactics, strategy and economy.
Oil Rush will feature state-of-the-art visuals powered by the UNIGINE engine, dynamic and fun gameplay, 16 missions of single-player campaign, 15 maps for multiplayer battles, as well as Multi-player over LAN and Internet.
