According to Stardock, Turtle Wars bring new single player scenarios “focused around the player building up defenses against impossible odds” as well as new maps to freshen up multiplayer matches.
The developer claims these scenarios are called “Implosion”, “Eruption”, and “Mountaintop”, all of which - along with the multiplayer maps - are designed to create “open possibilities” for players.
“Some of these new maps are ideal for things like a 2v1 match, even a 4v1,” said CEO Brad Wardell. “We’ve also made sure to include a large-sized 1v1 skirmish map, which will encourage players to build much bigger armies for more epic battles."
Wardell added that the new scenarios “add a different type of challenge and call upon a certain playstyle.” He continued, “We know that players will enjoy trying something new and then comparing their scenario scores against others’ in our Hall of Fame.”
Stardock claims that these scenarios are designed to challenge players to build up and maintain their defenses against mounting enemy pressure. “In the Eruption scenario, the player has the command of a single Hyperion Dreadnought and a handful of defensive structures and must somehow hold out against enemy siege while trying to turn the tides of battle,” the studio clarifies.
“In another scenario, Turtle Wars, the player is faced with several indestructible factories that are mass producing swarms of frigates. In order to win, they must hold off against the enemy and take control of the factories before the rest of the army makes it through the mountains to finish them off.”
You can pick up Turtle Wars through Steam or from Stardock.
