1 C Entertainment announced a new partnership today, with Russian developers GameTrek. This also revealed an upcoming Grand Strategy title, Secret Government. Secret Government will arrive on Steam’s Early Access program this October and will let players manage their own secret society. This comes with, of course, incredible geopolitical perks as you manipulate global superpowers.
Secret Government runs from the 128th century to the present day, and players will spread their influence across the globe and rewrite key historical events. From the War of Independence to the French and Napoleonic Wars, you manage resources and manipulate world leaders. However, you aren’t the only secret society trying to have your way, and the other orders aren’t afraid to be just as sneaky and conniving.
- Rewrite History – From the 18th century to the present day, the War of Independence to the French and Napoleonic Wars, each mission will drop players into major global conflicts, tasking them with manipulating the outcome to serve the Brotherhood’s ambitions.
- Play Your Pawns – The world’s most powerful figures – from national rulers to military superpowers – are but mere pawns to you. Learn to manipulate their complex AI machinations as you leverage their unique abilities to shape the world to your needs.
- Indirect Influence – Why should you have to do the heavy lifting of executing your diplomatic, economic, and militaristic ambitions? Plant your own agents and indirectly coerce others to do your bidding with over 50 types of actions intended to upend the world’s balance in your favor while keeping your hands clean.
- Manipulate a Living World – From ideologies to social classes, taxes to civil unrest, the world of Secret Government is comprised of countless interconnected sociopolitical systems that effectively simulate a believable and reactionary world. While world leaders strive to maintain the status quo, how will you destabilize the system and trigger worldwide change?
- You’re Not Alone in the Shadows – Facing down a hostile secret organization that isn’t afraid to manipulate their way into the history books, make every action and choice count in order to outthink the competition and maintain your hard-earned secrecy and level of infiltration in the shadows.
