Focus Home Interactive and Tindalos Interactive (Stellar Impact) released their first video for their upcoming RTS called Etherium this week. The video, entitled “First Troop Deployment,” teases the many units available, from the small infantry to the giant collosi of war that will do battle on the player’s behalf.
Etherium will feature a non-linear campaign and multiplayer support for up to four players. Players will pledge allegiance to one of three factions fighting for the valuable etherium resources on the planet Serenade and her six sister planets. To complicate matters further, the unpredictable weather can turn the tide of the battle. An ice storm can freeze a river providing a golden flanking opportunity or a sandstorm can hide an incoming army until it is too late. The game will be released in Q2 of 2014 for Windows.
