It seems that the once dead genre of space sims has had a breath of life pumped into it. Along with the stupidly successful crowd funding campaign associated with Star Citizen, gamers also have a new Elite game, Dreadnaught and No Mans Sky to look forward to. Well, now there is another game to add to that list. Rebel Galaxy has just been announced by Double Damage Games and it looks to add a capital spin on the traditional space combat sim.
Rebel Galaxy promises the ability to captain a massive ship where you will battle pirates, explore the universe and basically make your presence known. There will be a freedom to play the game how you would like with the ability to be a trader, pirate, privateer or a combination of all three. These features should help Rebel Galaxy stand apart from the rest of the pack and hopefully help it find its own niche.
The game is due for release on PC, PS4 and possibly Xbox One sometime in 2015. Now with all this renewed interest in space surely I can finally get a new X-Wing game and I can stop nagging on Twitter for it.
