8-Bit Armies is a fast-paced retro Real-Time Strategy game with a colorful, blocky voxel art style.

8-Bit Armies is a tribute to classic RTS games and is suitable for existing fans and new players of the genre seeking a friendly approach to strategy gaming. With a colorful, blocky voxel art style, the game is accessible to anyone regardless of experience.

The game is further enhanced with an all-original soundtrack from Command & Conquer music composer Frank Klepacki, which is reminiscent of some of his greatest hits from previous Westwood Studios RTS games.

8-Bit Armies uses a unique and simplified control scheme allowing future generals to quickly control hundreds of units on the brightly colored battlefield. Players can easily collect resources, build up and defend their bases, amass armies of easy to command military units, research devastating superweapons and ultimately crush their opponents!

SOEDESCO announced that the ESRB version of the 8-Bit Armies: Limited Edition launches on February 15th this year, due to local production delays. The European versions of this second edition in SOEDESCO’s Limited Edition program are releasing on February 1st.
