Cyberpunk RTS Neopolis announced for PS4

Omni Systems, developer of the Eufloria series, has announced its latest game, cyberpunk real-time strategy RPG Neopolis.

What is Neopolis? Well, here is a full overview courteous of the game’s official website:

The Game

Neopolis is a Real Time Strategy game designed to remove stale genre conventions (like complicated technology-trees) and replace them with deep, innovative, yet accessible mechanics. It’s multiplayer focused, but will contain some single player functionality. (Computer opponent, tutorials, skirmish mode)

“These are the gangs of the future: The Omni Street Warriors, The Disco Dazzlers The Coyotes…”

The Setting

The game’s setting is a futuristic city where matches take places in a augmented reality enhanced neighbourhoods. The game’s aesthetic successfully draws from iconic film and anime, effectively providing an interactive Blade-Runner-meets-Akira world.

Mechanics

Players control a “crew” and their HQ and turf, in a futurist city . They must defeat other unaligned crews to gain their allegiance and access their unique abilities, and control their turf. Together they can control key buildings in the city to gain tactical advantage and enhance their abilities.

Once ready they can attempt to conquer their opponent’s HQ and gain control of the city. Each crew is limited in size & must do with the members it has. Crew members can level up and gain abilities. They must be nurtured as they will be replaced by rookies when killed.

Game Modes

Player’s compete in various ways:

  • 1-on-1 multiplayer matches
  • Multiple opponents battle for a single map
  • Single player challenges
  • Campaign/tutorial mode

My Opinion:

RTS doesn’t tickle my toes like TBS, but I do enjoy the genre every now and again. That being said Neopolis has definitely garnered my attention.
