Gamigo is proud to announce the Open Beta for its tactical MMO UFO Online: Fight for Earth starts todayafter constant refinement throught the closed beta testing, thanks to the valuable feedback from the community. Now all players can join the three factions and battle to protect the Earth from the aliens.
Aliens have landed on Earth in the strategy MMO and want to take our resources. However, they didn’t reckon with the fearless resistance fighters. Even before the Skum attack, the three factions were fighting for world domination. Now that the aliens are also making their claim to power, all three factions have joined together against these invaders. Operating from self-built outposts, it’s imperative to defeat the aliens using technology and weapons. To do this, players have a team of specialists at their disposal with abilities from five class-specific skill trees.
During the course of the beta testing, the development team once again tightened some screws and carried out final optimizations. Thereby, the PvE content has been expanded, a comprehensive task system has been integrated, research and weapon upgrading have been improved, and new, dynamic missions now challenge players. Furthermore, the base has been completely reconstructed so as to offer a better overview and more interaction opportunities. Varyingly armored character hit zones also increases the tactical game depth in UFO Online.
A mixture of flash technology and a Unity Engine ensures for crisp detail 3D graphics sets the scene well for both the soldiers as well as the Skum. Graphical improvements were also undertaken for effects, for example with the weapons. Performance was once again optimized, especially regarding the flash part of the game. Users can also look forward to an improved interface with expanded functions like drag and drop and keyboard shortcuts.
In the turn-based, tactical battles the people who win are those who find the right mix between tactics and research. In the long run it’s all about achieving world domination with one of the three factions.
