AUSTIN, TEXAS – August 18, 2016 – Infinium Strike, the sci-fi strategy action hybrid from former Ubisoft producers working as Codex Worlds, will receive its first DLC titled Broken Overlord in Q2 2017. Gamescom attendees can meet the developers and finds out details about the new battles in this alien war. Located in Hall 2.1, booth D021.
Broken Overlord adds a four-mission campaign where players fight not only for the survival of humanity, but for the freedom of the alien species known as Bubba. Enslaved by the Wrog, the ruthless antagonist race, Bubbas can be rescued by the DLC’s new Freedom Void spaceship, which disrupts the mind-controlling devices crowning each Bubba.
The DLC will also introduce Nuke Avengers, a battleship that can launch massive nuclear missiles to close Wrog-spawning portals, and Bertha Thiefs, an invisible Wrog ship that steals resources from inattentive commanders. Broken Overlordalso adds new themes and decals to allow commanders to make their battlecruiser feel distinctly their own.
In Infinium Strike, players fend off attacks as the weapons officer of a massive battlecruiser, managing autofiring turrets, deployable fighter ship squadrons and special SuperTech abilities to curb enemies advancing from four surrounding quadrants of space.
The game’s Campaign Mode follows the rise of a weapons officer as the potential savior of humanity, ascending from the modest rank of Gunner Ensign to the elite Galactic Admiral. In the endless arcade-esque Deep Space mode, weapons officers face fixed waves of Wrog forces in a fight to top the leaderboards.
“With new ships and mission objectives, Broken Overlord amplifies the depth of strategy necessary to survive Infinium Strike‘s battle for survival,” said Dexter Chow, creative director, Codex Worlds. “We’re eager to see how the community will utilize Infinium Strike‘s new ships to manage the Wrog’s nearly-overwhelming threat to our super battleship.”
