INDEPENDENCE WAR DELUXE EDITION a new, updated version of the award winning Independence War.
Independence War Deluxe Edition is a space simulator title. Weve endeavored to make this program as realistic and as playable as possible.
It is the Year 2268, and a guerilla war is waging between the Earth based Commonwealth, and the Independence Movement or Indies, located in the outlying colonies of the Commonwealth. The Indies want to break free from Commonwealth control, but the Commonwealth needs the outlying colonies to support an overpopulated and polluted Earth.
In the Dreadnaught campaign, a Young Commonwealth Navy officer salvages a famous ship - The Dreadnaught - and awakens the personality construct of the ship's dead captain, Jefferson Clay.
Under Clay's watchful eye, the Officer embarks on a series of missions which take him deeper into the conflict, where he realizes that the war isn't a simple case of black and white.
In the Defiance Campaign, an Indie captain, Edison Hayes, and his crew fly their newly captured ship the Spartacus in increasingly dangerous hit-and-run missions against the Commonwealth Navy. But events take an unexpected turn and Edison finds himself fighting the primal causes of the war.
Here's a summary of the main game features:
The ship and its systems are based on future technology, this has been extrapolated from present day development and thinking on the future of space travel.
Control of the player's ship is achieved by a fly-by-wire system which makes Newtonian-based space combat and maneuvering as easy as dogfighting in an aircraft.
The player's ship is modeled in exacting detail. 34 separate systems are simulated in real-time.
The systems interact with each other. Damage in one system will affect systems further down the chain. Player can adjust system parameters to affect entire ship's performance.
