Fight anything anywhere anyhow… and by any means necessary!
Universal Combat takes you into a seamless universe full of epic space battles, massive ground skirmishes, fierce naval engagements and even tense dogfights above the planetÕs surface. In solo mode or in multiplayer, in first- or third-person view, play as a marine, a star ship commander with a full crew, or a pilot in the latest space fighter.
Universal Combat brings together the greatest components of any war together in a single game. Conceived in late 2001 as Battlecruiser Generations, the fifth title in the long-running Battlecruiser series, during development it morphed into much more than a massive space simulation. As Universal Combat, the new action-based focus, direction and premise of the new incarnation caters to a wider audience of action and space sim fans alike.
Taking off from where its predecessor left off, Universal Combat takes the series further into the epic realms of sci-fi greatness with a suite of brand new engines, features and gameplay enhancements. Complete with a space and planetary graphics engine overhaul, even more advanced AI, an all new models database and a wealth of multiplayer advancements, Universal Combat is bigger, better and more advanced than any sim game yet released.
