A new sci-fi game from the three-person development team Parallel Space, Battleship Apollo is now in early access on Steam. The game is set in the same universe as Hades’ Star an MMO made by the same developers back in 2017. Battleship Apollo takes place two hundred years later and diverges from the strategic MMO aspects of its predecessor, in favor of a focus on real-time strategy and competitive multiplayer battles.
In Battleship Apollo, players recruit battleships, and choose support fighters and special abilities, in order to battle in a variety of multiplayer modes. Modes include Free For All, where players simply outlast their opponents in a constantly shrinking star system, Siege where players summon large armies of fighters in order to conquer the map, and Sector Capture where players target and capture strategic points on the map. By playing, players will be able to unlock rewards like new battleships, new areas, new abilities, and special events to participate in,
Battleship Apollo will feature six different battleships to choose from that offer different tactical advantages over one another. Additionally, the game will include twenty different modules that contain support fighters and abilities that can be used to defend your battleship or attack others. The game will also allow players to team up and interact with each other in the form of corporations that you can create or join. Matches will take around four minutes in order to complete, and the game’s interface was purposefully made simple so that players can easily experience the game on both PC and eventually mobile on both iOS and Android.
Battleship Apollo is now available to play in early access for free through Steam. A full release date has not yet been announced but the final game will release on PC, iOS, and Android.
