Developer 5 Lives Studios have released a video showing the pre-alpha gameplay in the upcoming real-time class-based strategy title Satellite Reign.
A brief disclaimer from Mike Diskett – “It’s very much a pre-alpha build being demoed, nothing here is really final, the UI, audio, weapons and effects are 100% placeholder, in fact it’s so early we weren’t going to show any combat or civilians, but…
“The video was originally meant to demonstrate the agents’ coats reacting to wind from the cars zooming by, but before we knew it we were showing crowds of civilians, CCTV cameras, cover usage, x ray camera mode and even a couple of enemies.
“The video was recorded at 1920×1080 @ 60 fps on a 2nd Generation i5 PC with a Radeon 5970 using Fraps.”
Satellite Reign will be coming to Windows, Mac and Linux following its successful KickStarter campaign. In the game you control a squad of four agents, each with distinct and unique abilities, as they vie for control of a fully simulated, living, cyberpunk city.
The game world is designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, giving you the tools and freedom to play how you want to play, so you can create strategies and scenarios that not even the developers have anticipated!
Customise your team with the strength to destroy your enemies head-on, or hack into their facilities to manipulate their infrastructure without them ever knowing you were even there.
Will you take down your enemies with brute-force? Covert espionage and infiltration? Or will you use propaganda to influence the citizens of the city and overthrow the controlling powers?
