1C is pleased to announce that Codex of Victory, a sci-fi turn-based strategy with real-time base building elements, will be released on March 16th 2017 (Windows, Linux and Mac OS) through Steam and other digital stores. Codex of Victory’s developers are Ino-Co Plus, experienced creators of Warlock, Majesty 2 and Elven Legacy.
Codex of Victory pits players, as star lords defending human territories on distant planets, against the armies of the transhuman Augments. Players expand their underground HQ to manufacture and upgrade an army of massive, advanced drone units before dropping them into turn-based battles in an interplanetary war for humankind. Fusing two closely-related strategic gameplay types, Codex of Victory will keep players going throughout the game’s extensive singleplayer campaign. Further hours of gameplay can be had from head-to-head online combat, complete with detailed unit customization options.
About the game
Human society has been divided. On one side, the natural course of human evolution has been disrupted. What started as an attempt to adapt to the harsh conditions of outer space and hostile planets, led to the creation of a weird race of transhuman cyborgs – the Augments. Driven by a desire to ‘liberate’ ordinary humans from the limitations of their wholly organic bodies, the Augments have launched a full-scale attack. Now we must defend our territory and fight back, to save our Kingdoms and all of humanity as we know it!
Codex of Victory features an extensive story-driven, single-player campaign that tasks you with building and commanding a hi-tech army of drone vehicles, tanks and robots. The campaign offers an exciting mix of real-time base building, global strategic planning and turn-based combat. Travelling between planets and territories, your sole task is to stop the Augments.
Inspired by classics of the strategy genre, the base building element involves expanding your underground HQ in real-time. Collect room blueprints, build factories, research centers, workshops, laboratories and other facilities, to prepare for battles ahead. Global tactical oversight comes from your Planetary map, on which you’ll instantly see where your armies need to be deployed.
Engage in tactical turn-based combat on hex-mapped battlefields. Select your units and upgrades, deploy them to the battlefield using the terrain to your advantage and test your tactical skills in each mission. As you progress through the battles of the main storyline and the various randomly-generated side missions, you’ll gain access to over 25 units. Each type of unit comes in countless variations, thanks to a diverse range of upgrades and add-on modules. Build your best and put them to the test against the incoming Augments!
