The RTS is a tried-and-true genre of PC gaming that’s been introduced to players in an assortment of various ways. That being said, nothing that I’ve seen before is very like Dark Future: Blood Red States out of Auroch Digital. After an elongated silence after the game’s first announcement in 2015, the developers have released a brand new gameplay movie that features pre-alpha footage of the game.
As this is a video of a pre-alpha construct, Auroch Digital has stated that some of the the UI in this video are just placeholders, so that they aren’t final. That being said, underneath the thin layer issues that come with displaying early builds of this game is a really intriguing take on an RTS that combines traditional gameplay with vehicular combat and roguelike elements.
During a mission, the player’s car really drives itself, with players only marginally directing it on which lane to be in and what rate to proceed. After players go into Control Mode, time slows down, players can then aim the numerous weapons of the vehicle towards various other vehicles they’re fighting, but in addition they must take movement into account, so aiming marginally ahead is normally the smartest choice. Dark Future: Blood Red States single-player is also organised as a roguelike using permadeath, so proper planning is needed to endure.
Below, you may view some screenshots of all Dark Future: Blood Red States together with the gameplay. Dark Future: Blood Red States is supposed to launch on PC later in 2018.
