The game is being developed by Firaxis under 2K publishing label. Sid Meier’s Starships will extend the sci-fi universe introduced in previously released Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth.

The developers recently showcased the first gameplay video of the game as part of the Firaxis Games Megapanel at PAX South. According to 2K Beyond Earth and Starships is expected to feature an integration between the two titles which “will enhance and expand the depth of both game experiences.”

Starships is based on a story line that builds up on connecting with other galaxies to engage in duels, diplomacy or trade. The gameplay showcased during the event shows how you will be able to customise your starships with armour, capabilities and wonders.

“When designing Starships, I was intrigued by the idea of exploring the next chapter in the story of Civilization: Beyond Earth. What happens after we colonize our new home and eventually build starships to take to the stars? What has become of our long-lost brothers and sisters from the planet Earth?” said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games. “My goal was to create an experience that focuses on starship design and combat within a universe filled with interstellar adventure, diplomacy, and exploration.”

The interstellar game theme provides maps predominantly defined by asteroids along with quick routes that appear and then disappear. When you attack your opponent their position behind an asteroid will determine how much damage your attack will cause. Planning your attack position to maximise your damage will play a major role in your attack strategy.

Sid Meier’s Starships is expected to be available for Mac, iPad and PC in spring 2015. Watch the gameplay and announcement trailer below. What do you think about the game? Let us know in the comments.

]]> 0 Clash of Clans Update Releasing Today With Wizard Level 6 and More Tue, 27 Aug 2013 20:55:27 +0000 Read More]]> Clash of Clans update Wizards Level 6

Clash of Clans, the hugely popular game for iPhone and iPad will be receiving the much awaited update later today. The developers posted an update on the official facebook page announcing the release of the new content update for Clash of Clans.

Supercell in the past had updated archers, barbarians, balloons and giants to level 6 and in a recent update wall breakers were also updated to level 6. In the latest update expected to go live in a few hours level 6 Wizard troops, level 8 Wizard tower and level 5 Freeze spell will be added.

In addition to introducing new high level troops, Clash of Clans will also receive a brand new player profile page where you’ll be able to view player statistics related to progress, clan status, wins and troop donations.

Hog Rider which is a dark elixir troop had been known to not be good troop for an aggressive attack strategy. However, in the new update Hog Rider now gets a favourite target, the defences. The attack power has also been increased as well as the training time has been reduced. This could result in new attack tactics and experimenting.

A common problem with clan elders was that few player on becoming a clan elder would kick members just for fun. It appears that Supercell has taken this into consideration and now the new update adds a cooldown period for elders who kick out clan members.

Other notable improvements include, new replay sharing where it shows loot and achievement progress can be tracked even after an achievement is fully completed.

The new update for Clash of Clans will be available today according to the developers.
