HeroCraft has announced that they will be releasing their next game, called Starship Battles, onto Android by the end of October. This particular game falls into the MOBA category pretty nicely, with players needing to design their ships before battle testing their designs against other players. HeroCraft will be publishing this game for Epic Owl, who are the developers and made up of former Rovio team members.
Update: November 16th, 2016 4:12pm PST: For those of you who are waiting for the release of this game, you’ll be happy to know that HeroCraft has announced that Spaceship Battles will finally be launching on December 1st, 2016. When the game does arrive, we will post an update.
Starship Battles has players taking on the role of a rookie ship designer who is out to make a name for themselves. In this world, the only way to do that is to design a ship that wins as many battles as possible. Once you’ve designed your ship, you’ll fly it out into the space arena to battle it out with other players. As you progress through the game, you’ll earn money from successful fights which you can then use to upgrade your ship, open up more slots for more items, and upgrade existing parts with better ones. You can also buy completely new ships.
Starship Battles Features:
– Unique, never before seen gameplay
– Dozens of exciting spaceship blueprints to unlock and build
– Masses of different modules to build with
– Beautiful space battles to validate your designs
– Beat ships designed by other players to progress in ranks and league
You will also have a few different technology trees available to put points into. This will help boost the power, efficiency and other aspects of weapons and armor that you choose from your ship. Between the tech trees and the variety of parts, the combinations available are a lot, so having two of the same ships fighting it out are slim to none.
For those of you interested in Starship Battles, you’ll be able to pick up a copy of this game off Google Play by the end of this month. Unfortunately there isn’t a specific release date as of yet. Picking up a copy of this game will be free and it will contain IAPs as well. In the meantime, you can check out the Starship Battles trailer below.
