BlueGiant Interactive has announced APOX. The real-time strategy game is set in a near post-apocalyptic, "Mad-Max-esque" universe. It will feature realistic cover, over 100 maps, support for multiplayer games with up to 32 players, and a map editor.
“APOX is an RTS game at its core, although it blends in elements of FPS and RPG genres. We introduced FPS concepts like equipping multiple weapons, weapon drops, and limited ammo. We added RPG elements such as experience (veterancy) and giving units a high level of customization. We can put any soldier type into any vehicle type and essentially create dozens of unique unit variations,” said Mark Currie, Lead Designer.APOX is scheduled to be released later this year.

BlueGiant has released a gameplay video which is viewable at the APOX website www.apoxgame.com. APOX is using the open source rendering engine OGRE. The video demonstrates the high level of visual quality that can be achieved with OGRE. “We are really proud of APOX. We are the first Indian studio to make a game of this quality and scale,” said Vinnie Reddy, CEO of BlueGiant.
