The official word on Satellite Reign reads:
Satellite Reign is a real-time, class-based strategy game, set in an open-world cyberpunk city. You command a group of 4 agents through rain-soaked, neon-lit streets, where the law is the will of mega-corporations. Use your agents to sneak, shoot, steal, and sabotage your way up the corporate ladder, and take control of the most powerful monopoly of all time.
Satellite Reign was made possible by more than 15,000 generous backers through its Kickstarter campaign in July 2013. Leveraging Mike Diskett's experience creating the 'Syndicate' games of the 90s, Satellite Reign draws from the themes which made the series a cult classic, and brings them into the 21st century.
- When a corporation manages to patent immortality, it becomes impossible to compete. Where traditional business tactics fail, brute-force will succeed.
- The city of Satellite Reign is one big, open playground. No individual levels to pick between—the whole world can be explored seamlessly. Uncover new missions while you explore, and pick and choose which objectives you want to tackle.
- Each of your four agents can be tailored to suit your play style. Choose their skills, weapons, gear, augmentations, and even their genetic base by cloning exceptional individuals from the general population. Shape your team into an offensive war machine, or an elite covert spec-ops outfit.
- There's no 'right-way' to complete your objectives. The world has been designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, allowing you to choose from and combine a wide range of strategic options. Sneak in through ventilation shafts, hack doors, take out power generators, hijack the minds of guards, or just blow down the front door.
And now, here’s that trailer we mentioned:
Satellite Reign is released on August 28th.
