Exodus Wars is a new game that brings tabletop gaming to your computer.
Part of the expanded coverage of games here on TGN.
From the announcement:
Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire is a 3D turn-based strategy game that aims to capture the essence of tabletop gaming — specifically, the 6mm miniatures wargame, Exodus Wars (exoduswars.com) — to put you in brigade-level control of futuristic infantry and armored companies, as well as massive super-vehicles.
Membraine game designer Mark Sheppard wrote, “If you love tabletop miniatures games, we think you’ll get a kick out of finally being able to play something close to that experience on your PC. I think we’ve come closer than any other PC game as I don’t think the computer games based on tabletop IPs before us have ever really attempted to capture the freeform play that miniatures games allow. But even if tabletop’s not your thing, we think every strategy game fan will enjoy not being constrained by hexes or grid squares. We’ve tried to do something completely different, and I think we’re succeeding.”
Available on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux, Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire is warfare on a massive scale that will appeal to a core PC gaming audience that enjoys both strategic and tactical challenges. Featuring a unique, true-to-tabletop command system based on the 6mm Exodus Wars rules that has been streamlined for fast-paced battles, Chess-style alternating activations, customizable armies, and easy to grasp yet deep strategic and tactical play, the game tells a story from the Exodus Wars, a bloody civil war fought between the Guild and the Royal Empire of Man.
