The Space based game from Soldak Entertainment, Drox Operative, has had two of its playable classes revealed today. Those classes are the Brunt and the Cortex classes.
To quote the website –
Danger Level: Moderate
Brunt are as impressive as their size- huge. You’ll always find them carting large personal weaponry. While relying on firepower and aggressive tactics, they happily sacrifice speed and cunning. Intimidation and posturing often give the brunt an advantage when dealing with other races, and it precedes their true joy of mindlessly pummeling enemies to death. They are warriors of blood, fire, and brutality.
Danger Level: Low
While physically weak, the small, quiet, calm cortex make up for their diminutive size with an uncanny intelligence. They are exceptional researchers and scientists. While clever with defense, cortex are not quick to invade neighbors. It is a mistake to consider them benign, for when it comes to betrayal, nothing will stay their hand from justice. Stubborn is an apt description. They’ll fiercely pursue a grudge, so care should be given to maintain a decent reputation among their kind.
Drox Operative looks like it’s going to be an action RPG set in space; which is always interesting to see. According to the developers, it is imperative that as a player you side with the factions most likely to achieve victory in order to win.
As a Drox Operative it’s NOT your job to manage all of those annoying people, build thousands of buildings, play nice with your enemies, or balance the budget. It IS your job to pick the winning side and maybe even help them conquer the galaxy if you’re being nice, more importantly though is to rake in as many credits as possible, well that and build the coolest, deadliest ship in the known universe. Not many screw with an Operative captaining a Dreadnaught!
So money is going to be an important facotr in this game. And if you’re a fan of this type of game, or sci-fi games where you control spaceships, you should definintely check the game out at the Official Website.
