Zor Prime let us know about a neat looking space sim due out this fall. Nexus: The Jupiter Incident is a space sim derivative of the Homeworld style real-time strategy game. The developers call it a Tactical Fleet Simulator. There will be many characters and locations in a big universe to explore. Multiplayer will feature built-in voice communication, which is something I think every game needs these days.
Innovative and groundbreaking, it is a real-time mission-based tactical space game featuring spectacular real time battles and breathtaking motion picture quality. Focus on tactics and action as you control up to a dozen battleships encountering aliens, unknown solar systems and astrophysical phenomena in your struggle to save Earth.
The game ships in North America next February, but other countries should get it as early as November.
