Warcradle Studios have released a video discussing their plans for some of their games and how they are bringing them together into a new shared universe they are calling the Dystopian Age.
The big news of this is that Dystopian Wars will be seeing something of a reboot, with its background getting melded with that of Wild West Exodus.
The two steampunk settings should go together well, with their differences providing plenty of room for new developments and unexpected additions. I believe it will also allow Wild West Exodus to expand beyond its enclosed, American setting and let us see how the rest of the world looks and acts beyond its borders.
In the video, we also got a look at some new ships that will be sailing out for Dystopian Wars.
Each of these designs looks to be a pretty cool update on the original Spartan Games one. The Celestial Ninjing Class Battleship (centre) is particularly impressive and has me tempted to turn away from my Brittanian fleet.
However, the most intriguing has to be these concept pieces.
OK, that is pretty cool, very high tech and… Wait a minute, does that say “whale construct launcher”?
That is both incredibly cool, and rather disturbing. Given the level of technology, I initially thought this might be the new Covenant of Antarctica, or maybe it’s Wild West Exodus’ Watchers. Could the two factions be working together?
Moving from sea to land, we also have some previews for Armoured Clash.
With these vehicles, we see more of the cross-pollination of styles between Wild West Exodus and Dystopian wars, particularly the the Rolling Thunder (centre) and Ironhide Utility Vehicle (bottom).
Even with the smaller scale, they are very well detailed models and they looked the part for this new Dystopian Age.
What changes do you hope to see with this new Dystopian Age? What do you want to stay the same?
