So we have all been there, looking to get the tabletop experience in a PC game. Well, a game that has been stirring for some time now in development, has been opened into early access on Steam, that game being Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire. This game is based upon the 6mm rules for Exodus Wars from Steel Crown Productions.
According to the game’s designers:
“Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire is a 3D turn-based strategy wargame that puts you in brigade-level control of futuristic infantry and armored companies, as well as huge super-vehicles. This is warfare on a massive scale that will appeal to those who enjoy games that provide both a strategic and tactical challenge, such as the Total War PC game series or tabletop games like Warhammer 40,000. Featuring a unique, streamlined command system for fast-paced battles with Chess-style alternating activations, customizable armies, and simple–yet deep–strategic and tactical play, the game tells a story from the Exodus Wars, a bloody civil war fought between the Guild and the Royal Empire of Man.”
Looking over the pictures and the video, I do see elements similar to Total War games and it does have that 40K feel. So, maybe this one will fill that void some of us look for when we want that tabletop experience on our computers that just has not been filled before. I know some of you will say, “I play tabletop games to get away from the computer”. Right, but how cool would it be to be able to have a great battle on the next long flight or train ride?
Will you be waging war for or against the Empire?
