Rebel Galaxy For PS4 Boasts A Gritty, Open-World Universe
Okay, space cadets, pay attention.
Video games set in outer space will never disappear. Now, here's one from developer Double Damage Games that should appeal to space and sci-fi lovers everywhere.
It's called Rebel Galaxy and as revealed over at the PlayStation Blog, it's described as a "swashbuckling space game," filled with crazy aliens, lawless pirates and of course, "epic space battles."
This isn't about a super-slick sophisticated future; this is a "greasy, rusty place on the edge of the known universe," which actually reminds me a lot of "Firefly." The game will feature a sandbox, open-world format and you can play as any character you choose. If you'd like to be a merciless bounty hunter, go for it; if you'd rather be a sly trader or a "roguish do-gooder," that's your choice. And yes, you'll fly the ships and control the combat.
Double Damage admits that mapping all the necessary commands to a gamepad is a challenge, but they wanted to give you a large variety of weapons and options. The bottom line is that it'll be a blend between action, strategy, adventure and role-playing, and that could be way too cool to ignore. And there's some top-tier talent behind this project as well, so here's hoping it comes out nicely.
Rebel Galaxy is loosely scheduled to hit PlayStation 4 in 2015.
