Starshatter: The Gathering Storm presents both space flight combat sim fans and real time strategy addicts with a unique opportunity to experience both genres in one game. In Starshatter: The Gathering Storm, elements of real-time-strategy, like taking command of a battle to direct a battle with the ability to launch fighters and direct destroyers, are integrated seamlessly with classic fighter and starship combat.
Starshatter: The Gathering Storm allows gamers to wage an inter-galactic war at their own speed and level of involvement by combining fighter and starship combat in a single game. You begin the game as either a fighter pilot or the captain of a small Frigate-class starship where the knitty gritty of spaceship combat rages in every battle. As you gain experience on the frontlines, promotions and award will come your way allowing you to progress through the chain of command. With some luck and commitment, you may even end up commanding a massive fleet carrier with three wings of fighters and a complete escort of warships. Also, Starshatter: The Gathering Storm promotes airborne fighter combat to a first-class game component, allowing you to take-off and land at planetary bases, engage in aerial dogfights, and use air-to-ground missiles to destroy ground targets.
Starshatter: The Gathering Storm is also very modder-friendly. Because Starshatter: The Gathering Storm was designed from the ground up to support so many different play styles - from space fighter combat to airborne strikes to starship battles to fleet tactical encounters - you can use it to create mods for just about any popular science fiction universe you can think of.
