"I took my kids to see Crownd last month and what a show they put on. After the show I was introduced to the band and we talked about doing something together. After sharing their music with our development team, we felt it would be a perfect fit for our upcoming Titans of Steel Warring Suns game." said David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, "We're excited to have such a talented band working with us on this project."
Ariel Munoz, Drummer for Crownd, stated, "This is really turning into a banner year for us. We were thrilled when David approched us about working on a computer game. We went to their offices and David showed us the game and we loved it. The whole idea is still very new to us but we are really are thrilled to be part of this project."
The Titans of Steel: Warring SunsTM universe is a future where the main fighting unit is the Titan Attack Tech, better know as the Titan-AT. Titan-ATs are generally humanoid in appearance, range from ten to fourteen meters in height and weigh as much as 200 tons. A Titan-AT can have an array of weapons including lasers, auto cannons, missile launchers and other specialty weapons and defensive systems.
Titans of Steel: Warring Suns allows you to design or reconfigure your own Titan-AT. There are 450 different Titan-AT types to start with, including 150 pre-designed Titan-ATs. Each Titan-AT has over 74 internal systems, electronics systems, 4 armor types, 20 chassis styles, 5 size classes (recon, light, medium, heavy, assault) and 29 weapon types ranging from conventional to exotic. Once you've settled on your perfect Titan-AT, you can share your design with other commanders.
The battle area has four map sizes ranging from small to huge. Interactive terrain features such as flammable dense forests or smashed ruins make the battle more dynamic. An auto-move feature allows you to concentrate on your weapon systems. Multiplayer support allows up to four players with thirty-two Titan-ATs to compete in Hot Seat, LAN or Internet games.
Titans of Steel: Warring Suns will be available June 2003.
