Satellite Reign cyberpunk RTS releases on Linux

Satellite Reign rts launches linux mac and pc

5 Lives Studios has released Satellite Reign is a #realtime, class-based strategy game, set in an #open-world #cyberpunk city for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. The spiritual successor to Bullfrog’s Syndicate Wars. Players command a group of four agents through rain-soaked, neon-lit streets, where the law is the will of mega-corporations. Use your agents to sneak, shoot, steal, and sabotage your way up the corporate ladder, and take control of the most powerful monopoly of all time.

The world has been designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, allowing you to choose from and combine a wide range of strategic options. Sneak in through ventilation shafts, hack doors, take out power generators, hijack the minds of guards, or just blow the front door down. Countless opportunities await.

Features

  • When a corporation manages to patent immortality, it becomes impossible to compete. Where traditional business tactics fail, brute-force will succeed.
  • The city of Satellite Reign is one big, open playground. No individual levels to pick between—the whole world can be explored seamlessly. Uncover new missions while you explore, and pick and choose which objectives you want to tackle.
  • Each of your four agents can be tailored to suit your play style. Choose their skills, weapons, gear, augmentations, and even their genetic base by cloning exceptional individuals from the general population. Shape your team into an offensive war machine, or an elite covert spec-ops outfit.
  • There’s no ‘right-way’ to complete your objectives. The world has been designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, allowing you to choose from and combine a wide range of strategic options. Sneak in through ventilation shafts, hack doors, take out power generators, hijack the minds of guards, or just blow down the front door.

The 5 Lives Studios developers are very excited about the release:

“The time has come, it’s been over 2 years since we began thinking about Satellite Reign, and almost 2 years to the day since we moved into an office and began work on the game in earnest.  And it’s all thanks to you—our backers.  We literally couldn’t have done it without everyone who had backed and supported us, no matter how big or small your contribution, every little bit counted.

We’ve asked so much of you already, but we ask for one last favour, enjoy the game and tell your friends!  Share the links to our trailers and where to buy it.  A successful launch will help us grow Satellite Reign into something even better and greater.”

Satellite Reign was made possible by more than 15,000 generous backers through its Kickstarter campaign in July 2013. Leveraging Mike Diskett’s experience creating the ‘Syndicate’ games of the 90s, Satellite Reign draws from the themes which made the series a cult classic, and brings them into the 21st century.

The game now is available on Steam, Humble and GOG and it will be on sale with a 20% discount during launch week.
