'Nexus: The Jupiter Incident' Warps Into Retail

Nexus: The Jupiter Incident is a story-based single player strategy game. Starting in 2040, you are in control of the fleet of a multinational cooperation fighting a rivalling cooperation. The discovery of foreign technology leads to expeditions into space. When you return to Earth you find it occupied by Aliens. Only one colonizing spaceship with humans escaped. Your task is to find this ship, use it to build colonies and to finally gather enough strength to take back Earth.

Since its European release the Nexus community has produced a number of mods with the games’ tool kit. Gamers can visit to get an updated and complete list of available mods. The full mod kit is provided with the game and contains the tools and documentation related to ship modelling: a Nexus model viewer, a couple of sample models from the game, and a doc file describing the modelling guidelines and the usage of the model viewer.

“Nexus is the sci-fi game that captures the essence of perfection, with outstanding graphics, sound and game play and is a true out-of-this-world experience,” said Philip W. O’Neil, President of North America, Vivendi Universal Games. “We are very excited that Nexus has received numerous outstanding review scores.”

At the dawn of the 22nd century, the conquest of space and the colonization of the solar system are being monopolized by several huge and ambitious mega corporations. Although extremely delicate and vulnerable, equilibrium is maintained by these companies. It has now been 60 years since the terrible catastrophe that befell Noah’s Ark, the first colony ship of mankind.

At the very edge of the solar system the companies make a discovery which will shift the technological advantage and upset the balance. And so a new conflict is born: “The Jupiter Incident”. Players will step into the shoes of Marcus Cromwell, a young but already famous captain and his legendary spaceship Stiletto and find themselves in the middle of this conflict.

Nexus: The Jupiter Incident has been rated “T” by the ESRB and carries a suggested retail price of $49.99. More information on the game can be found at
