Iceberg today announced that Star Ruler will be available in retail stores throughout Europe, Australia, South-East Asia and various other territories on 16 September 2011. Pre-orders of the ‘4X’ Space RTS are now available with free shipping in the Iceberg Webshop (http://www.iceberg-shop.com/star-ruler-en.html).
A fully localized German version will be on sale in German retail stores on the same date.
In Star Ruler, players take command of a vast interstellar empire and safeguard their species from total extinction in a procedurally generated 3D galaxy (with the option to flatten it) from 1 System to 10,000+! Prove your species’ ingenuity through a deep and intricate combat system where anything (from individual components on ships to the stars themselves) is a target of opportunity.
Research new kinds of weapons, engines, shields, and more, all of which retain their unique benefits as the game progresses, with a research web whose contents are shuffled every game at your option.
Exploit interstellar phenomena such as asteroid belts and stars and exploit them for yourself or destroy them to deny your foes. Create and destroy new worlds through advanced technological research. Match your strategy against up to 10 other opponents (online or LAN-linked). Save the game when dawn breaks and boot it back up at dusk. It isn’t over until you say it is! Drop in and drop out at any point; disconnecting players will not disrupt the game!
