Executive Assault, Revealing Their “Explosive” New Trailer

execuitive assault header

Executive Assault is an indie real-time strategy/first-person shooter computer game where you not only build your base complex and create robotic armies to do your bidding, but also take control of your robots and fight as one of them.

Think of it as a futuristic ‘Stronghold’ meets ‘Dungeon Keeper’.

Command your army and take charge of the battlefield!

Just in case you aren’t familiar with Executive Assault, here’s a quick run down of what you can expect…

RTS Mode

As the CEO put in charge of taking over the planet, it is your job to build large base complexes containing all the facilities you need, construct factories to produce robotic troops, research high technology to give you an edge over the competition and of course direct your army to annihilate the opposing company.

Each facility is designed to snap easily together to create a seamless complex, which can then be upgraded with defence turrets, doors, forcefields and many other exciting technologies to help defend you from attack.

As well as building your base, you will also need to control your armies to attack, defend and conquer new ground using high tech weaponry and cunning strategies to defeat your opponent. From nimble robots who are the backbone to your army, to heavy tanks and walkers to crush all who oppose you. Along side your troops you will have access to long range artillery and missiles to take out unsuspecting units from afar.

Scattered across the map are various resources to help you improve and build your operation, from Thorium crystals to help boost power, to random meteorite impacts to give you rare resources for constructing the most powerful of units.

FPS MODE

Have you ever played your favourite RTS game and wished you were down there with your troops? In Executive Assault you can be!

Take control of any of your units from down on the ground as a robot or tank, or take to the skies and bomb from your fighter jets or huge shielded hover cruisers, it’s completely up to you!

Unlike most RTS games with FPS elements, in Executive Assault you will be able to enter the buildings that have been constructed and fight from inside, adding a whole new dimension to the RTS genre. Be down there in your robot factory defending it from the

oncoming hordes, or assault the opposing power station by breaking in and sabotaging their power grid.

Each unit in Executive Assault can be designed and customised to meet the needs of the battle. So if you find you’re being attacked by heavy walkers, then counter with heavy beam lasers to slice them down to size. Or if you find hordes of little bots are your problem, then upgrade your turrets with machine guns to rip them to shreds. In Executive Assault the decision is yours.

Executive Assault is currently in Early Access on Steam, this is your chance to help shape the fate of the game. The below are statements from the developers regarding their decision to release the game on Early Access, before the full release…

Why Early Access?

“Executive Assault has over 100 technologies in the tech tree, 16 controllable units and 5 maps ready to play. However I want to ensure that gamers’ expectations are met and to receive feedback from the community on how the RTS/FPS mixed genre gameplay should work. I also want to ensure there is a good balance between different techs before I move onto the next phase of development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I envisage the game being in Early Access for the next few months while the gaming community provide their input and feedback and to enable me to incorporate their ideas into the existing core gameplay.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Improved RTS and FPS gameplay based on community feedback as well as some much needed optimisation, weapon balancing and bug fixes. I also plan to add more technology to the tech tree that didn’t make it into this release (including hacking), more maps, cooperative gameplay (players vs AI), more avatars and logos/banners so you really do feel like an executive of your own company.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version of Executive Assault has both single player skirmish mode, multiplayer (player vs player), over 100 different technologies, 16 controllable units (Robots/Air/Vehicles), 5 exciting maps to play, base and unit design, resource gathering and much more.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The final price after Early Access has not been decided, however the game is in a perfectly playable state. Buying a copy of Executive Assault will help keep the development going and your feedback will shape Executive Assault into a marvellous game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community are encouraged to provide feedback on the Steam forums where I will be ever present to help answer questions and respond to suggestions. There is also a Facebook page, a Twitter page and a website where I will provide regular updates on the game.”
