In Iron Sky: Invasion you play a space-pilot defending Earth from those lunar lunatics. Don’t worry though, you’ve been given plenty of dangerous, experimental, secretly manufactured weaponry and space-fighters to play with.
The game is also linked closely to the film, with the visual effects and CG company for the movie providing the ship models, including the both armies’ fleets (space Zeppelins!), as well as all new ship designs for the Iron Sky universe.
In a unique twist on space-fighting games, the game will also include a political system, where you ‘need to know who you are fighting for, whose boots you are stepping on, and choose your friends, or more importantly, enemies carefully’.
These political machinations come in the form of unique missions from certain nations that the player can choose to accept or decline, affecting the progress of the war.
The game will use the latest technology to allow ‘photorealistic renderings of hundreds of space ships, advanced destruction physics and sophisticated AI for piloting spacecraft’, and for all those with 3D TVs, you’ll be able to fight the baddies and win the war in stereoscopic 3D.
