Epic Real-Time Space Battles
Galactic Frontline is a 3D RTS game set in deep space. Players can modify and upgrade parts of their fleet as they see fit. To overwhelm the enemy and gain victory, players need to collect energy, produce combat units, and use their tactical skills strategically.
As battle begins, two ships will face off from opposite ends of the map. Players will command a ship, up to four escort vessels (with tactical skills) and up to 6 combat units. It costs energy to produce units and use skills and a ship’s energy will regenerate at varying rates depending on upgrades and environmental features.
The choice of which escort vessels and combat units to take into battle is the player’s, and each player can unlock and upgrade new units and strengthen their fleets in a way that best suits their playing style.
There are currently five PvP maps in the game: Arena, Kuiper Belt, Zoltarian Outpost, Ion Storm and Ensari Temple. Each has unique features and will require players to adapt their strategies.
A Galaxy at War
The action revolves around three races fighting for supremacy across the galaxy: the Terrans, the Zoltarians and the Ensari. Players can travel through the galaxy in story mode, learning more about each faction, their history and capabilities. Each species has a different but connected story and a tangled web of friendship, conspiracy and betrayal awaits to be discovered.
Fantastic rewards can be earned for completing story stages the, and these can be used to upgrade your ship, units and escort vessels. Story Mode is a great way for players to learn the skills, and gain the resources, needed to compete in the game.
