Back to News Listing War Room Media Briefing #2 is nearing

Posted: Friday, April 13, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

After the success of the first War Room Media Briefing last month we decided to go even bigger: Slitherine wants to replicate the formula, but this time we’re even more ambitious.

We are holding an even bigger event which you will be able to follow live for an exclusive first insight on our upcoming titles.

 

We are teaming up with MSI Italy and Nvidia for an exceptional event: 10 journalists, Youtubers and influencers from all corners of Europe will gather in Italy for our War Room #2 on Thursday April 19th. Behind the IX century walls of Castle Pavone, built by the will of King Arduino, they will have a sneak peek on our upcoming titles: the WW2 RTS Close Combat: The Bloody First and the first ever 4X set in Warhammer 40K universe, Warhammer 40,000: Gladius.

 

 

After this exclusive preview, the 10 attendees will join other fellow players into battle in an epic online tournament of Empires Apart. World known RTS champions, Twitchers and Youtubers with over half a million followers like ZeroEmpires, Helping Hans, MarcusKron, TaToH, TheViperAOC, Guylogic, ArchWarhammer, Writing Bull and ReviewGameX, journalists from international media as WCCFTTech.com and Everyeye.it, hardware gurus as Tom’s Hardware: who will prevail? Follow our all day long Twitch live to see the champions fight, how they play with their favourite Empires Apart Factions, and unveil their secret tactics to win battle after battle to the final!

 

We will be streaming the tournament live non-stop on our Twitch channel, join us at 1.30 pm CEST and find out who will be the Empires Apart champion! Also, we will be posting pictures and live footage on our social media channels, so follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

This event was made possible by the partnership with MSI Italy and AK Informatica, providing us all the Gaming PC we’re going to use in the tournament. We would also like to thank Nvidia Italy and Cooler Master Italy for the prizes for our champions!

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.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Orks units preview

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Heavily-muscled, aggressive, eight-foot-tall fungal thugs with a love of warfare, the Orks were a spacefaring peril long before the human Imperium entered the galactic scene. Spread evenly across the galaxy, for the most part they are an irritant to any other inhabitants, like lazy, belligerent neighbours. But occasionally, as a swarm of locusts, the scattered tribes and clans form into a Waaagh! – something between a crusade and a riot – and devastate entire sectors until they run out of things to fight and fall instead into internecine warfare.

Aggressors Dev Diary 5 - Home Politics

Friday, July 6, 2018

Throughout human history it has been expected that those accepted as leaders or emperors would be responsible for bringing the country wealth, prestige and prosperity.

I have always felt that country management has been quite underrated in many other strategy games. The reason is simple, micro- and macro-management can be quite tedious, repetitive and in a way ruining the “fun”.
But sidelining country management has, in my opinion, also provided less realistic experiences. We accepted the challenge and came up with a few new game concepts that on one hand keep the economic, military, social and cultural decisions in the hands of the player whilst, on the other hand, complementing the robust and logical game mechanics. All whilst bringing in surprising elements that deepen immersion. Country management should be mostly automated and decisions should be either made actively by the player or he should be alerted in special circumstances to reduce the boring and monotonous tasks.
