'Executive Assault 2' Comes To Steam Early Access In October - Screens

Executive Assault 2 is a real-time strategy/FPS hybrid game where you build your space ship on town down mode, and defend it in first person mode.

With the Earth destroyed, players must grab their suit and tie as they begin life as a CEO of an inter-galactic corporation whose business objective is to take over planets in a bid to accumulate as much wealth as possible in a galactic wild west of chaos and lawlessness. Gamers can customise their corporation as they see fit, with the emblem and company, unit and product names all set by the player.

Orbiting the planet, your HQ now floats majestically through the heavens. Connect spaceship factories, robot assemblers, trading ports, and defense platforms to help take over the quadrant. Then go into FPS mode and defend the station from the inside, take control of the turrets, get into a fighter ship and have a fly about or just simply enjoy the view as you watch your station run.

In Executive Assault 2 you can play the game in RTS mode building your space station, trade with passing merchants, manufacture a fleet of huge star ships, assemble robots to help protect your station or attack someone else's, setup station security with force-fields and turrets, power management and research new and exciting technologies.

You can also play in FPS mode walking around the space station you just built, interact with various systems, help out by manning turrets or just grabbing a gun, take fighter ships out for a spin to explore new systems or defend the station or board a star ship and join the fleet attacking an opponents station.

Get ready for cosmic domination as space combat/strategy title Executive Assault 2 prepares to make its long-awaited landing onto Steam Early Access this October.

The gameplay is split into two distinct types: real-time, top-down strategy known as Tactical Mode and first-person, fast-paced combat action called Direct Control mode.

In Tactical Mode players leave behind their assault rifle in favour of a control panel as they command their fleet aboard the bridge of their space station. From there, players can research over 60 technologies (with dozens more at launch) and build 14 different units including 12 ships and multiple soldiers – all of which can be upgraded with 28 different skills in the game’s diverse upgrade tree. With their army prepared, players set-out to assassinate multiple rival corporation CEOs in order to take over nine large-scale system while battling against the various environmental factors, including ion and asteroid storms. Once a system is secure, players can then create multiple types of outposts to yield various materials. This includes mining outposts to mine minerals, research outposts for new technologies and defensive outposts for improved fortifications.

In Direct Control mode, players take control of any individual unit, whether that’s a ship soaring over the planet Tarkonis or a high-grade military soldier deployed on an enemy transport ship.  Each unit has a plethora of weapons to equip including blasters, rifles and explosives. Turning the tide in battle is the game’s super-weapon, the Monolith – capable of destroying an entire star-system at the push of a button.

All business leaders need good allies to be successful, and that’s why players can team up with friends and other players worldwide in the game’s PvE multiplayer mode. One player assumes the role of CEO and tactician and the other, a soldier or ship unit, with all the loot split straight down the middle. Those with loftier ambitions can embark in PvP, pitting players against one another in a bid for total planetary dominance.
