'Inhabited Island' Now Known as 'Galactic Assault' - Screens

Paradox Interactive announced that it has signed a publishing agreement with Akella for Wargaming.net's turn-based strategy Sci-Fi adventure Galactic assault, previously known as Inhabited Island: Battlefield. The battle takes place on Saraksh planet, where four armies (Khonties, the Land of Fathers, Island Empire and Southern barbarians) go toe-to-toe on field of action.

Khonties, Barbarians and the Island Empire, being all unyielding enemies, will get involved in fierce warfare set to destroy the entire race of the Land of Fathers. Each race will possess and develop easily distinguishable technologies. Therefore, heavy armored, transport, and aviation units, each of absolutely different construction will be present on the battlefield. The battles will take place among 3D vivid extraterrestrial landscapes, with day and night change and dynamic weather conditions will affect the gameplay. A haze of exhausted gases poise over steel battle machines; the ground gets blasted by tracks of tanks and other heavy vehicles; artillery fire scratches, burns and breaches heavily armored units. The game will offer tremendous strategic depth featuring fog of war, troop-carrying vehicles, return fire, laying mines, camouflage and tons of other strategic and tactical techniques.

Players will be thrust into a deep and harrowing story as four unique races battle for supremacy on the planet Saraksh. Each race possesses and can easily develop distinguishable technologies, leading to the presence of vastly different heavy armored units, transport units and aviation units on the battlefield. The battles take place among vivid extraterrestrial landscapes in 3D with day and night changes as well as dynamic weather conditions that affect the gameplay.

"Akella has become a major player in the development and publishing of quality PC games and we are thrilled to enter this long-term partnership with one of Russias most acclaimed companies" said Fredrik Wester, Executive Vice President."

"We have followed the development of this title closely as we are great fans of Massive Assault developed by Wargaming.net.We are convinced that the unique dynamics and gameplay in Galactic Assault will appeal to even the most jaded strategy gamers, Mr. Wester continued."

In addition to the interesting story line, Galactic Assault offers a revolutionary tactical combat system, more than 70 unique units of great power and high-definition visuals that will immerse players in a horrendous story of war and survival.

  • Immersive storyline based on "Inhabited Island" (aka "Prisoner of Power") by the Strugatsky brothers
  • 4 totally unique races: Land of the Fathers, Khonties, Barbarians and Island Empire
  • Realistic battle system (camouflage, fog of war, return fire, mine laying, fortifications, land and air troop carriers)
