Publisher Iceberg Interactive and Toronto-based game developer L3O Interactive revealed 4x turn-based strategy game Horizon for PC. Horizon is a game of galactic conquest and is set in the not-so-distant future, where humans have just begun venturing beyond the edges of the solar system, only to find that the universe is far from empty.
You will explore deep space, find new frontiers and discover alien artifacts hidden on long-abandoned planets. You will also learn more about the galaxy as you come into contact with 10 other species, each with their own unique culture, history and schemes. You will be able to play Horizon in different galaxy sizes with huge sizes spanning over a hundred star systems and more than a thousand planets, design and customize your ships’ weapons and systems based on available technology and, take coordinated diplomatic and military actions with your allies against your enemies.
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “With Horizon we are very excited to sign another gem for our ensemble of 4x strategy games. Horizon approaches the genre from the unique angle of humankind’s dawn of space conquest, adding to the rich arsenal of future fiction. Iceberg will now eagerly set out to intensify efforts for a successful launch, focused on extensive QA testing, Marketing, Localization and other publisher duties.”
L3O Interactive CEO Raffi Parsekhian says: “As passionate gamers ourselves and being a small indie studio, it was very important for us to find the right partnership and we are thrilled to have an established and dedicated strategy game publisher in Iceberg. Their experience and commitment along with our passion to the 4x genre will help bring the best out of Horizon.”
Horizon is currently scheduled for a summer 2013 release.
