Posted: 24.06.2012 17:13 by Comments: 6
Blue Giant Interactive has officially unveiled their new science-fiction real-time strategy game, Tryst. The game had been in development for over a year, and will run on the Unigine graphics again, which had been announced nine months ago. RTS title Oil Rush utilized the engine.

 
The developer listed the following features for their upcoming RTS:

* Unique Character Abilities and Upgrades – Almost all our battle units come with special abilities of their own. Its up to the player to choose what they want and how they want to match the powers of one with that of another.
* Multiplayer – Up to 8 player free for all maps that always promise to keep people reinventing new strategies to outdo their opponents.
* Environmental Hazards – Maps are filled with dangers that can both hinder a player or help him set up the perfect ambush against an enemy.
* Keep on Going – You don’t have to worry about players who go offline or have to leave in the middle of a game. They’ll be replaced with competent AI immediately.


Blue Giant also released a teaser trailer for Tryst, and launched the official site here.

The presentation is slightly less than ideal but it should not matter much if the gameplay is solid, but i know this is not finished yet and there's plenty of time to spice things up a bit. The "Keep on Going" feature seems like a really nice idea though.

At first sight it looks like a solid attempt specially considering how empty the RTS world is right now.

It is pretty empty, noccy and will be until "CoH 2" is released and "DoW III" is announced (at least a surface-based RTS anyway, as "SoaSE: Rebellion" is actually more RTS than 4X Strategy). Still, there's a plethora of average to dreadful RTS's out there littered over the decades so I hope this it isn't one of those.
You'll see. There's a drought now, soon there will be a flood.

Let's hope you're right :).

DoW III will get me excited only if I see videos with proper base-building, CoH should be great though.

I'm with you on "DoW". I thoroughly enjoyed the Action/RPG approach, many times over but I do look forward to the return to the original's mechanics of a true RTS with base building. Just be thankful the game isn't owned (yet) by EA or we might have seen a "C&C 4" clone. *shiver*

That "yet" part could turn out be a problem.
Nah it wont happen, the world is not such a cruel place :)

THQ is still downsizing (or "focusing" as Relic put it in their interview in PCPowerplay on "CoH 2") so who knows, nocc. Your dream, sorry nightmare...wouldn't rule it out just yet.
