Fair Weather Studios has announced their brand new turn-based strategy game, Ancient Frontier, which is set to launch on Steam on September 21.
Ancient Frontier is a sci-fi turn-based strategy game with RPG elements, think XCOM meets Battlestar Galactica, that’ll offer players a robust single player story-driven experience. With two full campaigns and optional side-missions, players will have plenty to experience. Interestingly, the game is set in the same universe as Fair Weather Studios’ last title, Bladestar, though it’s a far reach from the comforts of the core systems.
Players will need to build and command their own fleet of ships that’ll take to the battlefield in tactical turn-based combat. During battle, players will be able to use ship-specific abilities to get ahead, as well as complete story-driven objectives to progress through the game.
As players progress they’ll be able to upgrade their ships using resources and unlock new technology via the game’s tech tree. Ships will also gain experience and will become more powerful as they level up. In total, the game will include over 35 unique ships.
