Starvoid – Multiplayer RTS by Paradox Interactive Released

By on August 30th, 2012 1:24 pm

Starvoid - Multiplayer Sci-Fi RTS

I’ve been following Starvoid for a while now and today we hit the release deadline and the game was made officially available digitally through diferent sources, including GamersGate, GameStop, Amazon and Steam for a lunching price of $9.99/€9.99.

Starvoid is a sci-fi real-time strategy game by Zeal Game Studios and Paradox Interactive. It’s a 100% multiplayer game where you’re not expected to build a base, do resource gathering, engage in diplomacy or conduct research. In the Game Director’s own words – “Starvoid is about controlling units and start fighting. You join a server, start a new game, fight for as long as you want and then leave when ever you want. It’s not only about winning and doing the right thing (…) it’s mostly about the fun.” ~Rasmus Davidsson (Zeal Game Studios).

I’ll try to get my hands on Starvoid for at least a first impressions to let you guys know more about it. No promises though. But, chances are that if you prefer to play multiplayer, like fast-paced RTS games like Starcraft but without the base building component, and with strong emphasis on the action combat parts then I guess you could enjoy Starvoid.

    But I like the base building parts, I will wait for the full review and let’s play videos.

      Yea, the lack of base building and 100% multiplayer turns me off. For their sake the game better be lots of fun. But, as far as I know there aren’t many RTS games like these available so I guess they may have a niche market to go for. Let’s see what others have to say about it.

    I hate the idea with multiplayer only… Gonna pass up on this. I want single player story :)

    • JohnR says:

      I’m with you all the way qwsed. In fact having a good story-driven single player campaign was why I went with Star Wolves over SINS: Rebellion.

      Concerning Starvoid, it may in fact be good as long as there’s more to do than just bang, bang, shoot ’em up.

    I played a match and surprisingly I won! The game can be pretty intense and for sure it’s more fun when playing with friends.
    It’s not that bad afterall, has a lot of customizations in it, lots of chars, stuff to unlock.

    Good price for fans of this type of game. Unfortunately, I haven’t been one for RTS aside from some Dawn of War co-op. I haven’t played competitive RTS like this since Warcraft II. :)

    One for me to miss as well,no interest in this sort of game

    Sorry, WoW and Guild Wars have cured me of any interest in multiplayer-only gaming. Inevitably it degenerates into “who can click on the icons fastest”, something that (with me) disappeared with the onset of old age. Good luck, whippersnappers!

    Hey, are you still thinking about reviewing this? From what I’ve heard it’s supposed to have some pretty decent ideas.

    Just thought I’d check before I drop $10 on it.

    • Adam Solo says:

      Yes, just hang on for a few more days ;)

    • Adam Solo says:

      Sorry Space Lizard, and everybody, but the review is taking more time than expected. This is a multiplayer-only game and there haven’t been many players around playing it lately. We hope to have it ready in the next couple of weeks.

      • Stupid Space Lizard says:

        Yeah I understand, I actually picked it up last week and still haven’t managed to get a game going. The scene is just completely dead.

        I’d offer to jump in a server with you, but doing 1v1 in a team game is pretty pointless.

        Hopefully Paradox runs some promotions or at least has it go F2P before pulling the plug :(

    Awesome :]
