Andromeda Online Open Beta Begins
7:11 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Aepox Games has announced an open beta test for Andromeda Online, a strategic starship wargame for the Macintosh, Windows, and Linux. Players in the game design a command crew, pick a stock starship or design their own, and go into battle.

Here's a bit more info on the game:

And while one-on-one battles are a blast, that's only the beginning! Why play with just one ship when you can command of fleet?! Command an armada of up to 500 scouts, fighters, cruisers, battleships, even space stations! Break them off into fleets and sub-fleets as you scour the galaxy looking for your opponents ships.

Andromeda Online offers unparalleled scalability! Play just one ship against your opponents, or use of fleet! A unique damage based point system ensures that one can use an infinite number of strategies, and still win. Hide in asteroid fields, nebulae were even a deadly plasma storm! Play games with as many as 10 players at a time, make teams and alliances, even play with or against the computer! Design your own crew and ships, offering a micromanagement design for players who are interested, and trade your ship designs online! Or, focus purely on the battle, learn to draw your opponents into hazardous areas, send in micro cloaked fighters, so small and invisible they are nearly impossible to hit! How will you grow your empire? The choice is up to you...

The open beta test is scheduled to run through September 30th. For more information, head over to the official web site.
