Bracknell UK, 19th August 2019 

Strategy gaming specialists Kalypso Media and developers Realmforge Studios (Dungeons 3, 94% positive rating on Steam) have today announced Spacebase Startopia (Kalypso Shop | Steam), an all-new take on the 2001 cult classic, financially supported by the FFF Bayern and coming to Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in Q3 2020. A teaser trailer is available to watch below.

 

In Spacebase Startopia, manage your very own space station, maintaining the three unique deck types, accommodating eight different alien races and defending against enemy invaders while also contending with the station’s sharp-witted and sarcastic narrator AI, VAL. Take on the final frontier by yourself as you strive to create the best trade and tourist destination in the galaxy in the challenging single player campaign and the versatile battle mode, or link up with up to four friends/frenemies in competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.

 

Spacebase Startopia is available for hands-on gameplay and developer-led presentations for the press at gamescom 2019 at Kalypso Media’s booth in Hall 2.1, Booth D-13 of the business area. Please contact the PR team to make an appointment.

 

To ensure that all of our upcoming games run at their optimum quality, Kalypso Media will use CSL Boostboxx high-end gaming PCs with hardware from ASUS Republic of Gamers at gamescom 2019.

 

 

Spacebase Startopia is scheduled for release in Q3 2020 on Windows PC, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mac and Linux. To register your interest or to book an appointment to see the game at gamescom 2019 please contact the PR team.
