airships: conquer the skies game to get the co-op and Conquest update for linux mac windows pc

Airships: Conquer the Skies game is due to get co-op and Conquest update soon for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the ongoing work of developer David Stark. Plus the game is also discounted on Steam and GOG, regular price on Humble Store.

The developer is eager to announce, August 16th, 2022. Since it is the definitive release date for the huge Co-op and Conquest update for Airships: Conquer the Skies. The update also adds co-op airship combat. Along with any number of human and AI players on each side of the fight.

Due to massively expanding the features of the conquest mode:

A full-featured diplomacy system. The AI takes a “realpolitik” approach and the system explains in detail why the AI likes or dislikes a diplomatic action. So no AI opponents that hate or love you for no clear reason. Your diplomatic actions also affect your reputation in the Airships: Conquer the Skies world as a whole.

The ultimatum system is a big change, where you can send an interaction saying, “do this or else I’ll do this other thing”. This can be “pay me tribute or I declare war”. But also more out there are things like “upgrade our non-aggression pact to a defensive pact or I’ll cancel our trade treaty”.

You can now upgrade your towns and cities. Doing so with shipyards, factories, police stations, pleasure palaces, labs, and more. Balance your costs between building up your empire and winning more of it.

There are new systems for logistics and city unrest in Airships: Conquer the Skies. As well as a fully rewritten espionage system and a revamped tech tree. Plus a much better looking new map.

Finally, there are now special eras in conquest that change things up by having special rules. Like an Age of Piety that reduces unrest and gives the players a bunch of holy sites to fight over. Or an Age of Exploration that lets the players send out parties to find knowledge and valuables.

Airships: Conquer the Skies is a real-time strategy game. One where you build steampunk vehicles and fight with them against other players and weird monsters. It’s been around for a number of years from solo developer David Stark. It has sold over 100,000 copies and has an active modding and multiplayer community.

Airships: Conquer the Skies co-op and Conquest update is coming on August 16th, 2022. But the combat game is discounted 25% on Steam and GOG, with regular price on Humble Store. Available on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
