CDV Software Entertainment has today announced that it has changed the name of Imperium Galactica III to Galaxy Andromeda and has also launched a new official Web site for the game.
"While Galaxy Andromeda was originally conceived as the third game in the Imperium Galactica series, it has developed now to the point where we are confident of releasing it as a fully fledged game in its own right," said Terry Malham, president of CDV Software Entertainment UK. "We have high hopes for this game and expect that, with its new title, it will go on to establish a whole new franchise of its own."
Galaxy Andromeda, which is being developed by Hungarian team Mithis Games, is a space-themed real-time strategy game scheduled for release toward the end of this year. In addition to a single-player game consisting of some 30 narrative missions and 25 randomly generated missions, the game will feature LAN and Internet support for up to 16 players.
