Video game publisher Little Orbit has announced that it will be releasing a video game adaptation of the sci-fi TV series Falling Skies this Autumn, on PC and consoles.
The game will be a "tactical strategy RPG" with players commanding a squad of human resistance fighters taking on the alien Espheni.
“Our goal for Falling Skies is to recreate the humanistic elements from the television series so that players can grow with the characters as they play through intuitively designed strategies,” said Matt Scott, President of Little Orbit in a press release sent to Strategy Informer. “We want to bring that same character driven storyline derived from the series to the game all while making it easy to navigate for every player.”
Expect tactical combat missions in a variety of flavours, from simple hit-and-run attacks to rescue situations, along with lots of unique character skills and equipment upgrade options. Charcaters from the show will make an appearance in the game's storyline too.
