Description

BATTLESHIP APOLLO brings raw sci-fi joy from massive, tactical space combat between capital spaceships and their support fighters.

Players will recruit massive Battleships, select accompanying support fighters and other special abilities, and participate in a variety of multiplayer combat scenarios. In Free For All, every player will try to have their Battleship outsurvive all other Battleships, in an unstable star system that constantly shrinks. In Sector Capture, teams will race to capture strategic points on the map while defending against enemies. In Siege, players will coordinate with their teammate to control the map and summon massive fighter armies to help in combat.

Designed specifically to be replayable for months and years, BATTLESHIP APOLLO both simplifies and deepens the traditional RTS experience, with elegant rules and fun units that are easy to learn but hard to master over evolving game modes.

History

BATTLESHIP APOLLO takes place 200 years after the events of Hades' Star, the successful MMO launched by the same team in 2017. Hades' Star has created a sizeable, passionate, positive community that is involved in the development of both games. Both games will be evolving and supported in parallel as part of our unified vision for the Hades Galaxy franchise.

Like Hades' Star, BATTLESHIP APOLLO was created by the same tiny core team of 3 developers. We are passionate about simple, beautiful sci-fi designs that focus exclusively on the strenghts of the RTS genre: fun units and interesting interactions between them. Our belief in simplicity extends beyond our games and into our workplace. Hades' Star and BATTLESHIP APOLLO have been created and maintained for the long run, with no crunch and with pro-active effort to maintain healthy work/life balance.

Features

  • Six Battleships, each with different strengths and weaknesses that require distinct tactical approaches.
  • Over twenty modules consisting of support fighters, and both offensive and defensive ship abilities.
