Iceberg Interactive and development studio Ntronium are pleased to report that a Supernova (PC) will occur in the universe of Armada 2526 in April 2011, both enriching and expanding the turn-based space RTS game that was originally released by Iceberg Interactive for PC in June 2010.
Raymond Snippe, Senior Development Manager of Iceberg Interactive: “We are really excited to continue our cooperation with Ntronium on the Armada franchise. The new Supernova add-on, the extra races and overall improvements truly expand the existing Armada Universe beyond its known space. Supernova offers light-years of new gameplay to explore and we are sure that fans of the series will be truly delighted.”
“I’m really excited by the release of Supernova. It’s a huge expansion with tons of new tech new things to explore, and lots of improvements suggested by fans over the past year. In particular I’m really pleased to have included multi-player support, as Armada 2526 is one of the few grand strategy games whose system is ideally suited for it”, said Bob Smith, Managing Director of Ntronium Games.
Supernova is the first expansion for Armada 2526 and gives you more to explore, more to exploit, two new races to exterminate, and lets you challenge your friends over a local area network, or by email. The exploration side of the game has been greatly enhanced with new types of stars and planets, and a wide variety of special characteristics that a system may possess. There’s a new trade system that lets you build up a trading network, a system for espionage and special operations, many new technologies to research, and lots of new units types.
Iceberg Interactive has set Armada 2526 Supernova to burst into retail stores across Europe in April 2011. Pre-orders are available with free shipping up until the release at the Iceberg Webshop
