MUNICH, GERMANY - July 11, 2018 - Travian Games has revealed two new online titles currently in development: 4Sight, a real-time PVP squad tactics game and Startrail Destiny a team-based space combat game. 4Sight is being produced in partnership with the Ukrainian independent studio Shadow Masters, while Startrail Destiny is being developed in-house by northworks, the Hamburg-based subsidiary studio of Travian Games. Both titles are scheduled to be released on PC in 2019 and will make their public debuts at gamescom 2018.

A teaser trailer for Startrail Destiny can be viewed here.

Concept art for both games can be found here for 4Sight and here for Startrail Destiny.

Infused with Travian Games’ philosophy of creating deep, complex, community-driven games, both 4Sight and Startrail Destiny are online multiplayer titles offering exciting PvP gameplay. 

  • 4Sight is a real-time PVP squad tactics game developed by the Shadow Masters studio in close partnership with Travian Games. Set in a dystopian near-future dominated by warring corporations and cutthroat warlords, the game is played from an isometric perspective and blends rich tactics with adrenaline-filled multiplayer action in unique arenas. Players build and command a squad of four deadly mercenaries and battle others in decisive online matches. The squad members come in all shapes and sizes, across six classes, from nimble snipers to massive guardians. Once deployed on a mission, choosing the right tactics and taking advantage of cover and elevation on the battlefield is key to success in 4Sight. Commanders will be able to customise their mercenaries, equipping them with unique abilities, weapons and gadgets, with their right use turning the tide of battle and ensure victory.

     

  • Startrail Destiny sees players take command of different types of spaceships, from nimble fighters to massive battlecruisers, and fight it out against in 5v5 teams in a fight for precious resources and the survival of humankind. Players’ crafts can be customised with hundreds of different modules, from rapid-fire turrets to advanced defensive shields. In Startrail Destiny, the discovery of the Startrail changed everything, allowing giant motherships to travel the galaxy instantaneously and colonise rich, new planets. However, conflict was never far away, and players find themselves locked in a desperate struggle to be the first to discover the end of the Startrail.
Both titles will be shown at gamescom 2018 in both the B2C and B2B area. Media appointments to get hands-on with each game, as well as interviews with the developers, are available now and will be held at the Travian Games booth (Hall 10.1, Booth B-061) Don’t hesitate to come back to us if you are interested. 

4Sight and Startrail Destiny are the latest games to be added to Travian Games’ expanding roster of published and in-house developed titles. They join powerhouse games such as Crowfall (Artcraft Entertainment) and Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues (Richard Garriott with Portalarium) as well as the established online games Travian: Legends and Rail Nation. The publisher is renewing itself and is working on a variety of new titles, with more games to be announced in the near future.

With 4Sight and Startrail Destiny we are continuing to pursue a new, exciting direction for Travian Games,” said Lars Janssen, CEO of Travian Games. “We hope the community will like the new direction we are taking. We have no doubt they will enjoy both new games, as they embody the same exciting mix of tactical and competitive player-versus-player gameplay we feature in our existing line-up of strategy titles. As Travian Games, we are confident in the quality our partner studios will bring to the table. This is just the beginning; our fans can expect more new games to be announced very soon.”
