'Stellar Commanders' Launches This Week

Stellar Commanders is a fast-paced multiplayer real-time strategy game that pits player against player in a bid to take control of distant planets as part of an inter-galactic war for precious resources.

Stellar Commanders is a one on one multiplayer RTS where players choose their arsenal of units to wage war against each other. It plays like a traditional real time strategy game, but each round is only seven minutes before the tiny planetoid blows up to smithereens.

In a future filled with conflict and scarcity, earth’s most precious metal is found to exist in small planetoids. To seize control of the Iridium buried beneath the surface of these celestial bodies, players must first engage their enemies on the surface in a tactical land grab. Is it more efficient to become a destructive force that subdues the enemy opposition, or better to be a surgical, strategic conqueror that snatches key territory quickly?

Players must decide based on the terrain, available resources and their opposition, taking action before seven minutes is up.

The speedy 1 vs 1 battles will see each player align with a different faction and choose units based on a deep roster of unlockable futuristic troops; from rockets, tanks and stealth generators to bombastic orbital satellites, all of which will help determine tactical decisions. This is our first multiplayer strategy game and one that we’ve been excited about for some time – it seemed like a perfect next step after the huge success of First Strike.

Combining the First Strike community’s feedback about making a multiplayer strategy title with our own love of ‘90s RTS games has resulted in Stellar Commanders, which will have all the fast-paced fun of a modern, tactical RTS as well as a touch of nostalgia.

Stellar Commanders was built from the ground up to be just as original and frantic, while giving it a brand new arsenal building system to create more strategic depth than First Strike ever had. It is supposed to be the perfect game to invite your friends and play a round against each other at any time.

Key Features:

  • 1v1 multiplayer battles - Play against your Friends in an epic 1 on 1 Fight.
  • Use 5 unique unit types, with a total of 40 units - Attackers, Defenders, Conquerors, Supporters and Orbital Strikes are awaiting your commands.
  • Choose from 3 intergalactic factions- Choose between the aggressive Sons and Daughters of Barovia and the expansion-oriented United Coalition of the World.
  • Release the Superweapon - Build your devastating Iridium rocket to annihilate half the planet.
  • Fast and intense gameplay - A battle only lasts 7 minutes, then the planet collapses. You have to act fast and smart.
  • Fight on the ground and in the air - Use Conquerer units to take the planets under your control. Smash your opponent with Attackers and show them who owns the planet.
  • Unique gameplay on tiny planetoid maps in space

Stellar Commanders will launch for PC (Steam) on February 20, 2020.
