The latest game from Double Damage is a "blue space combat adventure".
Remember Double Damage Games Rebel Galaxy ? Well, even if you do not, it's called a "kind of prequel" Rebel Galaxy Outlaw . It will be released in the first quarter of 2019 for PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC and will be a "Space Combat Adventure". Watch the following trailer (with permission of IGN):
34 years before his predecessor, players play the role of Juno Markev. As a smuggler who has cleaned up her act, she is withdrawn after a serious incident in the law. After her ship has been ruined and debts incurred, Juno goes on an adventure.
Rebel Galaxy Outlaw will be having over 20 hours of "subspace radio" alongside the emphasis on space combat, and poker and billiards activities such as dice. Once again, you will take on dubious jobs and deal with fairly unlawful characters to earn credits.
Double Damage co-founder Travis Baldree said: "This has become the most ambitious game I've ever worked in. We took what worked from the last title and then went a little crazy. It has a stronger focus on history and location, a giant leap in detail, and while it still works great for people with a HOTAS at home, I think we've managed to make space fights accessible to everyone nobody has made it so far Much more to come over the coming months. "
While the first Rebel Galaxy was pretty decent, will this more-flying, action-packed approach work better for the sequel? We'll find out next year when it's released.
