New Ships: You Decide!

Written by Admin | Tags:

Owner of The Black Ocean and Spartan Vanguard veritechc is leading the Firestorm Armada Community in helping to design new ships for an upcoming Spartan Games product release.

In response to requests from the Firestorm Armada Community, Spartan Games are releasing new small models for each of the 6 major races – Dindrenzi Federation, Terran Alliance, Aquan Prime, Sorylian Collective, The Directorate and The Relthoza.

The call goes out to all of the Firestorm Armada Community. What new ships would you like to see? Any special classes, Model Assigned Rules or squadron sizes? We’re inviting you to share your ideas.

You may make one submission per race, and all your submissions must be placed in one e-mail. Submissions that do not use the above format will not be considered. The Black Ocean will collate all submissions and send them to Spartan Games.

We are very excited to see what the Firestorm Armada Community come up with. This is a real opportunity to influence your game. Once we get the results and understand what the most popular ideas are, our design team will go away and work their magic. We will then be able to share with you renders of your creations and get the ball rolling on setting a release date.
