Time to get excited again folks, Satellite Reign the crowdfunded real-time class-based strategy game that is from the creator of Syndicate Wars has shown off some footage!

Absolutely loving the visual style of this, I played the original Syndicate on Amiga when I was younger and it sucked a lot of my time away, so I imagine this will too!

Satellite Reign is a real-time, class-based strategy game. You control a squad of four agents, each with distinct and unique abilities as they vie and battle for control of a fullysimulated, living, cyberpunk city.

The game world is designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, giving you the tools and freedom to play how you want to play, so you can create strategies and scenarios that not even we had anticipated!

Customise your team with the strength to destroy your enemies head-on, or hack into their facilities to manipulate their infrastructure without them ever knowing you were even there.

Will you take down your enemies with brute-force? Covert espionage and infiltration? Or will you use propaganda to influence the citizens of the city and overthrow the controlling powers?

Satellite Reign will be released on Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

They gained £461,333 from Kickstarter in July of last year, it's fantastic to finally see something come out of it.

The game is built in Unity, hopefully given their budget we will see them have time to overcome Unity's poor mouse support on Linux.

Not slated for release until at least December this year, we still have a while to wait considering not many Kickstarter hit their original estimated dates.

Stunning. I was just thinking lately how much I'd like to replay Syndicate Wars (never played the original).

For a pre-alpha video, that was very impressive.

This looks brilliant. I was a massive fan of Syndicate so I can't wait to try this. Not sure how I managed to miss the kickstarter!
