Intelligent Life Games has today announced that the open beta test of Imperial Wars will soon be closed and the full game service will launch on May 19. The game is a turn-based strategy RPG that supports up to 16 players in a single universe, and while the game can be played at any pace because of its turn-based nature, it's possible for players to meet in a war room and communicate with each other in real time should they wish to do so.
"Imperial Wars offers a blend of online science-fiction strategy with a very interesting and new role-playing character element from all those archetypal science-fiction stellar empires we have known and loved," said Larry Dunlap, one of the founders and the creative director of Intelligent Life Games. "Imperial Wars is meant to appeal to those players who realize that the delayed gratification, anticipation, and suspense of turn-based movement, combined with the immediacy of a persistent player environment, generally lead to a much more intense player satisfaction. The game environment in Imperial Wars leads to a delicious tension between competition and cooperation between starlords in their universes. Games are an integral part of the human experience, and there are a lot of people who want real gameplay as well as eye candy and technical 'gee whiz.' These are the people we feel will best fit Imperial Wars."
Imperial Wars will be available to download from Intelligent Life Games and will cost $10.95 a month to play. For more information, you might like to visit Intelligent Life Games' official Web site.
