Rebel Galaxy developed by Double Damage Games and released in 2015, gets a sequel. Cold Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is also developed by Travis Baldree and Erich Schaefer, the roots of the Diablo and Torchlight series, Hellgate: London and Mythos . Outlaw is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC for $ 30.
Fans of spacefaring games can remember that Rebel Galaxy which was revealed here on Polygon in 2014, a three-dimensional game was locked to a two-dimensional plan. The players took the role of massive capital ships and kicked wide sides in the opposition in the form of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag . The game also contained solder mechanics borrowed from action roles genres.
"This must be the most ambitious game I've ever worked with," Baldree said in a press release. "We took what worked from the last title, and then it went a bit crazy. It has a stronger focus on history and place, a big jump in detail, and while still working well for people with a HOTAS [hands-on throttle and stick] at home, I think we've managed to get plasma games available and fun for everyone else in a way that nobody has ever done before. We have much more to share in the coming months. "
A press release states that Outlaw will also include out-of-the-cockpit adventures, especially "billiard and dice poker, lots of sketchy characters to meet, and sketchier jobs to take on."
A teaser trailer, available on YouTube, shows a graphic style that looks like on the original game. It also sheds a huge amount of shade on the Star Citizen project, an ambitious collection of unfinished spacecraft games with a troubled development story, yet the most funded crowdfunding battle of any kind on any platform.
Double Damage also launched a massive set of screenshots and original artwork, a part we've included below.
