Veteran developer Petroglyph, today announced the release of their new modern RTS with traditional roots. Grey Goo will be a blend of old-school gameplay mechanics, combined with modern design tools and technology to create the ultimate strategy game.
Ted Morris, Executive Producer at Petroglyph said: “Grey Goo has been a real labor of love for us for some time now, and we’re incredibly excited to finally start talking about it. We have a rich, lengthy background as RTS developers, dating all the way back to our time on the original Command & Conquer™ at Westwood Studios. We want to bring back some of what made those ‘traditional’ RTS games great while addressing all the lessons we’ve learned along the way. Grey Goo is an experience informed by the collective history of the RTS genre, infused with innovative ideas and a forward-thinking spirit that accomplish something original by incorporating new amalgams for the genre.”
Petroglyph has lots of RTS experience to draw on and it will focus on base building, unit management and warfare for a new space saga. There will be three factions – The Beta, Humans and Goo. Each has their own distinctive abilities, styles and strategy. There will be a single-player campaign as well as a multiplayer mode. Grey Goo will be available this fall for PC via steam, but to keep you going till then take a look the trailer released and some screenshots and concept art.
