To succeed gamers will need to tend to their expanding perimeter and plan activities depending on the environment and its resources as well as the actions of opponents. Perimeter takes place in a detailed science fiction universe and embraces an epic plot centered on the fate of a civilization that once abandoned Earth. The gamer participates in important events that happen along an extended timeline covering several centuries. Perimeter also features rich multiplayer opportunities including contests with opponents via a local network and the Internet.
The title does not copy current RTS products but instead offers a well-balanced combination of new terraforming principles and territorial wars with traditional strategy elements. The brand new game engine combined with the well conceived and original game design results in a top tier product. So in a few words Perimeter is the first RTS title that features real-time terraforming spiced up with territory wars and zonal control.
