Hot on the heels of Savage’s resurrection, another RTS/FPS hybrid is soon to enter public alpha, Albatron.
All you have to do for a chance to test out the game is sign up for the newsletter. You can also preorder the game to support development, but that’s not required for alpha access.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Albatron defines itself by being a game that anyone can play however they see fit. Either stick to the RTS view and command an army, or take control of any unit on the battlefield and dive headfirst into war. The game also features hero units that can level up and unlock special abilities, and no RTS would be complete without multiplayer; Albatron currently supports up to 8 people.
As the label alpha would imply, Albatron isn’t quite done yet, but some of the additions we can expect as development continues is a Coop Vs AI game mode, campaign story mode, and the ability to command troops while playing the game as an FPS. New races and more abilities are also in the cards, as well as modding support.
There’s a fair amount to taste (and test) when Albatron enters public alpha next month, and all you have to do is sign up for the newsletter by July 31st. Also worth noting is that the alpha won’t have an NDA, so record and stream away.
