Team Jolly Roger announces launch date of Worbital
Team Jolly Roger, an award-winning Finnish developer, has recently unveiled the release date for their newest game, Worbital. The title is currently set to launch on Steam come January 31, 2019. If you aren’t a PC gamer but still wish to check it out, then you may be happy to hear that Team Jolly Roger plans to release the title on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later in 2019 as well.
Worbital is a strategic deep-space artillery game, and Team Jolly Roger claims it will ignite the solar system with a unique blend of long-range combat and cosmic chaos.
Gamers may remember Team Jolly Roger’s prior game, Interplanetary, which tasked players with building the infrastructure of a planet, developing defenses, an erecting powerful weapons on your chosen planet’s surface. Worbital is a spiritual follow-up to this title, taking the premise of shooting your artillery across the solar system into a new level thanks to real-time strategy combat and no shortage of destruction.
As you play the game, you will need to command planets that positively bristle with enormous guns and lasers, as well as various exotic fortifications, such as planetary shields. Of course, what’s a war game without the odd maniacal doomsday weapon? Worbital features quite a few of these as well, such as the powerful World Rammer.
You will need to utilize all of these and more if you hope to achieve victory in the ever-shifting battlefield of a star system. After all, a foe may appear to be worlds away one second, but then, suddenly, be immediately within your orbit the very next.
Of course, you have the option of who you wish to battle. You can choose to do so online, via local multiplayer, or simply take on the game’s AI, allowing for quite a bit of pandemonium to be unleashed no matter what you choose.
All in all, Worbital is a much more cartoonish, but equally destructive take on Team Jolly Roger’s previous game. There’s still a deep strategic layer there, but it’s wrapped in much fluffier packaging, assuming of course your OK with all your gifts being wrapped in rocket fuel and gunpowder-soaked nuclear bombs. Sounds like fun to me.
