Snowforged Entertainment has just released a pre-alpha footage gameplay trailer for Starfall Tactics, a real-time strategy game that lets us customise our starships in-depth from a huge array of components and weapons.
It's an online free-to-play and is powered by Unreal Engine 4, with three factions reaching out to the stars following an exodus from a radioactive wasteland that became Earth. They promise "balls-to-the-wall explosions".
The Siberian indie studio aren't exaggerating either if their pre-alpha trailer is anywhere near accurate, as there's plenty of pew-pew eye candy with laser and rocket fire everywhere. We'll get a buffet of ship classes to choose from in forming and outfitting our fleets.
The ships can be customised right down to the blueprints, and every alteration has an impact on how they'll perform in the heat of battle. Check out the official Starfall Tactics website for more.
• Tactical combat
Fight your battles using a variety of ships - from subtle frigates, to deadly cruisers and heavy dreadnoughts. However, a reliable fleet isn't the only ingredient for success. Effective commanders will have to rely on their ability to properly assess the situation, taking into account many factors, such as the equipment of enemy ships, the surrounding environment and the available technology.
• In-depth customization
Everything in Starfall Tactics, from the hull of your ship down to the individual engines, is created using blueprints. Players can easily customize and outfit ships, adapting their tactics for a variety of situations. Every choice matters - the diverse range of tools directly influences your strategy against opponents and allows you to create truly unique fleets.

Experience epic battles, balls-to-the-wall explosions and stunning visuals delivered via the Unreal Engine 4.
