Playlogic acquires WorldShift New revolutionary RTS set to be in stores, starting Q2 2008
Today, Playlogic Entertainment, Inc., an independent worldwide publisher of entertainment software, announced that it has acquired the right to publish the Real Time Strategy game WorldShift for PC from the German Publisher Black Inc – a label of RTL Games. Playlogic will release WorldShift starting Q2 2008.
A DARK FUTURE LIES AHEAD In the 21st century, earth has been hit by a mysterious huge dark object called ‘Shard Zero’. It released a plague that disrupted the very nature of space and life. WorldShift is set thousands of years later, when our civilization is no more than a fading myth. The remnants of Human civilisation developed a new culture and now live in 5 mega-cities, struggling every day for the precious resources they need to survive. The rest of Earth is populated by the Tribes, successors of early humans that were affected by the Plague.
A NEW TAKE ON STRATEGY WorldShift is a next-gen cyber-fantasy RTS game designed to be immersive and intuitive. It offers fierce encounters all around the Earth and a fascinating story uncovering ancient secrets about the true nature of the Shard and the Plague. But also, WorldShift introduces many features new to the genre, like modifiable factions, unique cooperative multiplayer gameplay, and more.
ITEMS, RELICS AND THE ABILITY GRID In WorldShift, there are no technology trees featuring hundreds of upgrades; instead, WorldShift allows the players to discover and acquire a vast number of items and powerful relics that they can use to freely change their gameplay and preferred tactics and to surprise their foes. The players will gather items as they fight their opponents and as rewards for completing missions. But to discover the most powerful relics, they must form teams with their most trusted friends and embark on deadly missions where it is difficult to survive and where the real challenges await.
