Any Battlestar Galactica fan will know the power of the Cylons – and in Battlestar Galactica Deadlock, following a surprise attack from this robot army, it is up to Rear-Admiral Lucina Cain to fight back. The fate of mankind is on her shoulders.
Well, it sound’s like it’s on your shoulders actually, as it is up to you to design and command your fleets of devastating battleships, recruit officers to protect the Twelve Colonies, and order your fleet during real time pausable full 3D space battles.
You will have to go on the defensive as well as the offensive too, with Cylon Raiders and missile salvos from Basestars coming your way. By unlocking blueprints, you can have access to various ships, munitions and squadrons to utilise in fighting off the enemy.
For anyone wanting to get involved in some space war conspiracies, or for general fans of the hit show, Battlestar Galactica Deadlock has many elements and characters of the show involved to create an authentic Battlestar Galactica video game. I might not know what a Raptor scout is or why the Quorum of Twelve needs to be unified, but I am sure there are many out there that do, and want to play a part in organising them.
Battlestar Galactica Deadlock will need you to put your tactical hat on, organising your fleet both on and off the space battlefield, as well as getting involved in other political elements of the Battlestar Galactica universe.
PC gamers would have had the game available to them since August, but If this sounds up your street then £23.99 spent on the Microsoft Store will see the game sitting pretty on your Xbox One digital shelf. There is a £3.99 Reinforcement pack available too.
