Iceberg Interactive announced today that Star Ruler will be released in Europe, Australia, South-East Asia and various other territories on September 16th. Star Ruler is a Space RTS PC game that is being developed by Blind Mind Studios and pre-orders are already open for those interested.
Star Ruler will feature procedurally generated galaxies, unique research system, extensive modding support, will support 10 players over LAN or internet and an original soundtrack. The game also promises to feature unlimited ships and unlimited scale.
As the press release reads:
In Star Ruler, players take command of a vast interstellar empire and safeguard their species from total extinction in a procedurally generated 3D galaxy (with the option to flatten it) from 1 System to 10,000+! Prove your species’ ingenuity through a deep and intricate combat system where anything (from individual components on ships to the stars themselves) is a target of opportunity.
Research new kinds of weapons, engines, shields, and more, all of which retain their unique benefits as the game progresses, with a research web whose contents are shuffled every game at your option.
Exploit interstellar phenomena such as asteroid belts and stars and exploit them for yourself or destroy them to deny your foes. Create and destroy new worlds through advanced technological research. Match your strategy against up to 10 other opponents (online or LAN-linked). Save the game when dawn breaks and boot it back up at dusk. It isn’t over until you say it is! Drop in and drop out at any point; disconnecting players will not disrupt the game!
Your weapons, your ships, your rules: Almost the entire game can be modified through Notepad! Easily add new models and particle effects to the game with “out-of-the-box” developer tools. Create new weapons in seconds; create new AI’s through scripts! The Galaxy is yours to Rule!
