Back to News Listing BATTLESTAR GALACTICA DEADLOCK IS OUT ON PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE!

Console gamers get ready to fight the Cylon threat!

 

After a successful launch on PC/Steam in August this year, over 80% of favorable player’s reviews, and more than a million battles played, Battlestar Galactica Deadlock lands on the PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One today. The game is now available for download on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

 

 

 

Created in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, Universal Cable Productions, Slitherine and Black Lab Games, Battlestar Galactica Deadlock™ is an intense tactical space battle game that uses a WEGO play-system.

 

Working closely with Universal allowed for unprecedented access to production and key Universal stakeholders, enabling Slitherine and Black Lab Games to find unique ways to explore the Battlestar Galactic universe, create original ships, and extend the canon of the beloved series. In the WEGO battle system, players give commands to their fleet of capital ships and watch the explosive results play out in real-time across beautiful environments. From the bridge of the Daidalos shipyard, players will command the entire Colonial Fleet, building up its forces and jump them across the quaternary solar system of Cyrannus.

 

Creating such a deep tactical game for consoles was not an easy task. The whole UI has been re-built from the ground up to better suit console control systems. The uniqueness of the Battlestar Galactica Deadlock™ gameplay, with its WEGO play-system, is even more profound on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The new DLC pack includes new ships for Colonial and Cylon factions and a host of new in-battle features that add depth and tactical options for both PC and console players.

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #2 - Planning the Battle

Monday, July 23, 2018

Juha Kellokoski, the main game designer from Veitikka Studios, will give us a short overview on a very important topic: how to effectively plan and manage your units during a battle! Kudos to Juha for this great article

In this Dev Diary entry I will show one way to manage a defensive battle plan. As an example, I've decided to play as the United States Army, defending against the Soviet Union. Armored Brigade battles have three phases: the setup phase, the action phase and the after action report phase. Here I'm going through the setup phase. The player must designate his target reference points (TRP) and place obstacles, if he has any, and optionally he can plan unit paths, fire missions etc.

Space Program Manager celebrates the 49th anniversary of the Moon Landing with a discount!

Friday, July 20, 2018

On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. Eastern Time, people across the Earth listened the words of NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong: "That's one small step for man . . . one giant leap for mankind". These now famous words marked the Apollo 11 mission as one of the most crucial enterprise for modern human history. 

For the first time, human beings walked across the surface of the silent companion of our Planet and the hearts of millions of people watching the event vibrated with an emotion impossible to describe.

Aggressors Dev Diary #6 - Combat (part 1)

Friday, July 20, 2018

One thing I have never liked about 4X strategy games is the missing tactics. I never really understood why. Why cannot a game combine both – strategy and tactics? After all, quite a few generals became emperors!

Armored Brigade Dev Diary #1 - Artificial Intelligence

Monday, July 16, 2018

The Armored Brigade artificial intelligence (AI) is fully dynamic, which means that it can handle any scenario within the game parameters, without a need for any scripting from the scenario designer. This approach has been the basic foundation of the game. I've always found the procedurally generated game content fascinating, and that can be seen in the design philosophy of Armored Brigade.

In Armored Brigade, there's an undefined number of maps, units, environmental conditions, and so on. The system must build a readable representation, process the input and then produce output that creates a credible impression of intelligence that behaves in a realistic, unpredictable and challenging manner. That's quite a challenge indeed. A "chess AI", where you have a finite number of possible states, is out of the question.
