Stardock’s massive tower defense title, Siege of Centauri has officially begun Steam Early Access, for 9.99. Set in the Ashes of the Singularity universe, players will take the role of a defender of Earth’s first colony on Proxima Centauri.
“With tens of thousands of enemy machines pouring toward your base, we want to give players a very new experience of what it means to defend themselves against overwhelming odds,” said lead designer Derek Paxton. “The benefits between a rail gun that fires one deadly round every ten seconds and a high-speed plasma arc array that does low damage, but to dozens of enemies at once is obvious to players, especially when they see a huge mothership surrounded by hundreds of escorts coming at them.”
In the early access period for Siege of Centauri, players will:
• Defend Centauri: Gain access to new technologies and fight off enemy invaders from region to region.
• Deploy your Defenses: An arsenal of emergency rapid deployment defenses are at your disposal. Use them in strategic locations to halt the swarm’s progress.
• Strike From Above: When all else fails, use your ship’s formidable capabilities from orbit to destroy your enemies.
