Dominate the Skies in Last Days of Old Earth (Video)

After the Deck Builder Update, that brought custom decks, and the introduction of facilities and subterfuge with the Stealth Update, today the death arrives from above. Players now have the opportunity to dominate the skies of Last Days of Old Earth thanks to the addition of the Air Update.

Decks can now be upgraded with new Aircraft Units with specific abilities such as Airstrike, Air Recon and Anti-Air adding a completely new layer of strategy to the game. Strike at the heart of your opponent’s forces from the air, softening up their armies or send out aircraft to scout and investigate unexplored areas of the map, quickly revealing the enemy’s plans.

Structures themselves can host new specific facilities for keeping enemy air units at bay. Skywatchers can count on Anti-Air ability to fortify their defences and shoot down hostiles. On the other side Automata has the Pulse Shielding technology that sum the Defence of Automata Units within the structure it resides, both during Airstrikes and normal combat.

Thanks to the Deck Builder players can create their own decks to build a specific play-style. Is it better to go with a stealth approach and sneak up on the enemy, or weaken opponents from the air? Which combination of heroes and units builds a well-balanced deck? Make a choice and test your deck in the online multiplayer or single player Skirmish mode.

The game is currently in Early Access on Steam and the Air update is the third of four planned major updates following the game’s initial launch.

About This Game

There is no space for defeat. Defeat means death on the battlefield or the end of our search for the last rays of a dying sun. We must escape these bitter, glacial wastelands and find a new home. A new future.

Last Days of Old Earth is a turn-based strategy game set in a far future world where the sun is dying. The remnants of humanity must migrate once a generation towards the equator where it is still warm enough to sustain life.
Spiritual successor to the cult classic PC game Armageddon Empires, Last Days of Old Earth invites you to become the leader of the human Skywatchers or the robotic Automata, two fundamentally opposed factions. In a hostile environment, where natural resources are almost depleted, you must fight your way to survive for one more turn. With scarcity goes rivalry, and only the law of the wild applies in this icy and desolate world.
