Armada 2526 continues the great tradition of space opera
games. You guide your race from its first interstellar
journeys, until it becomes a mighty galactic empire. Along the
way, you'll explore the galaxy, conduct research, diplomacy
and trade, found new colonies, maneuver mighty star fleets,
and fight epic battles. Although the game is complex, and the
possible strategies endless, powerful help and advisor
features help you get up to speed quickly. Unlike many games
in this genre, Armada 2526 boasts a streamlined play system,
providing games that can be finished in a reasonable time, and
emphasizes battle and strategy over economic micro-management.

Turn-Based Strategy Map - The strategy map shows the portion
of the galaxy where the game takes place. Here you'll maneuver
your fleets, manage your colonies, and grow your empire. The
emphasis in this part of the game is thinking and planning, so
you can spend as much time as you want planning your
strategies, and issuing orders. When you're done, hit the "end
turn" button, and your orders will be carried out
simultaneously with those of other players.

Epic Space Battles - Battles can be epic affairs with more
than a hundred ships on each side. They are presented to the
player in their full majesty via real-time 3D rendering with
glowing energy beams, shimmering shields, and spectacular
explosions. The action is real-time, both to enhance the
visual spectacle, and to introduce elements of tension and
pressure; however, the emphasis is firmly on tactics and
maneuvering formations, rather than frantic clicking on
individual ships, and you always have the option of pausing
the battle to issue orders. Planetary assaults are especially
intense with ship to ships battles, ground battles and ground
to air battles all taking place simultaneously. If the
attacker doesn't complete the conquest quickly enough, the
battle will continue into the next turn, giving each side the
chance to throw in reinforcements.

Diplomacy - With so many players, you need a full featured
diplomatic system. In Armada 2526 you can negotiate offensive
and defensive alliance, non aggression pacts and trade
agreements. Trade money, technology, colonies, ships and
information. You can issue threats and ultimatums, or ask for
favors. Friendships can be made and trust earned, or your
reputation can be ruined by bullying and not honoring
agreements. Negotiations proceed by a series of offers and
counter offers. Hard bargaining can drive the price down, but
being generous builds friendships. During negotiations, you
see an animated view of your counterpart, so you know who you
are dealing with, and how they feel.

Technology - There are many different technology items to
research. The game system encourages you to specialize in
particular areas of tech, so as you expand and meet new
players, you will find that they have radically different
capabilities. Many of the technologies are disruptive, and
force you to radically alter your strategy and tactics to
utilize them, or to cope with the lack of. You may for
instance concentrate on building the biggest and best navy in
the galaxy, and then watch in dismay as your ships flee from
and opponent who has mastered the psychic arts, or are
outmaneuvered by an adversary who has specialized in stealth
or hyper space technology. You may have turned your planets
into fortresses, but this won't help if they are infected by
nanobots that eat defenses from the inside out, or if your
opponent is impolite enough to drop an asteroid on your
favorite colony.

Powerful AI - The artificial intelligence routines have been
created by an expert in the field, to provide AI players that
are both worthy adversaries, and opponents that are fun to
play against. The A.I. has been built into the game from the
beginning of development and updated to take advantage of new
game features as they are added, giving the developers the
maximum time to polish its behavior. This is in contrast to
many games, where the AI is tacked on at the end of
development. Of course the same powerful routines developed
for the opponents, are also available to assist the player in
managing their empire, and to offer game play advice.
