'UFO: Extraterrestrials' Goes Gold - Screens

by Rainier on April 18, 2007 @ 12:23 a.m. PDT

UFO: Extraterrestrials is a 3D tactical/strategy title with a rich and compelling sci-fi story. The title combines global strategy with small squad based tactical combat against an alien invasion. To repel the alien invasion the player must take full advantage of the terrain and his surrounding environments.

The year is now 2025 and on the newly colonized planet Esperanza our space devices have not just been approached by alien machines but attacked.

The player controls a squad of soldiers, light and heavy support combat vehicles, robots and air units located in a base on the planet Esperanza that had been colonized by the spaceship Magalhaes in the year 2023. This squad was brought together by the Esperanza government to face a threat that comes from deep space. In case the player succeeds in averting an alien impact on Esperanza, the story will continue on the planet Earth which has been subdued by alien forces.

The title combines global strategy with small, squad-based tactical combat against an alien invasion. To repel the alien invasion the player must take full advantage of the terrain and his surrounding environments. When waging war against the enemy on the ground, advanced artificial intelligence will challenge the player's tactical mettle while fully destructible environments will grant unprecedented free form of gameplay. There's no one correct way to approach any tactical situation! Take all this and couple it with weapon and technology advancement at the player's home base that allow for new and improved weapons, armor, vehicles and more to be developed, and UFO: Extraterrestrials will provide gamers with addicting gameplay that always leaves them coming back for more!
