In Etherium, there are three empires that are having troubling times to keep etherium stable, which you can only find this resource in a handful of planets. Players will be taking control of one of the three empires, where depending on which empire you choose, the characteristics, strengths, weaknesses, technologies, and special skills will all be different.
“Mars is one of the 6 deposit planets for etherium, the extremely rare resource for which the armies of the Consortium, the Intari and the Vectides are locked in a merciless struggle. Humanity discovered etherium on Mars several hundred years ago during their first attempt to colonize it, as evidenced by the many ruins of industrial plants that were built to extract this precious resource. Today, a battle is raging on the Red Planet and the Consortium, mobilizing most of its troops on the ground, appears determined to keep control of the planet!”
Etherium allows you to test your strategic skills in online mode, where you will be competing with up to four players. If you don’t want to go online mode, players will be able to do solo campaign, where you are free to decide how you progress through the campaign. Gather resources, grow your colonies and take control of the map that will lead your army to crushing your enemies. You will be able to take control of units that include, infantry, tanks, aircraft, and “even gigantic colossi of war several dozens of meters high; real machines of destruction!”
