Novus AEterno - The Epitome of MMORTS Gaming

Happy holidays everyone! Been a long time since I last contributed on BV. I just wanted to share this game to all of you guys. While I was searching for a new game to play, I came accross this one on Kickstarter. I started researching and it looks like something from gaming heaven.

"If Eve Online and Starcraft had a love child, it would be Novus AEterno."
Novus AEterno is latin for 'a new beginning of time'. The title of this post is not an exaggeration. NA will put KIXEYE games to shame or any other game publisher in the mmorts gaming space for that matter. Funded in Kickstarter within 5 days and been in development for 2 years now. It's only a matter of time till it gets released to the public.

So What Is It?
It's a massive multiplayer online real time strategy game set in one infinite sized universe. It's a full fledge PC game, not a browser game. It will be available on Steam. You start with home planet that you can never lose and you can expand through all of space.The game is built with the D.I.M.E military strategy in mind. Diplomacy, Intelligence, Military, and Economy.

What's more?
This game is a sandbox game. You can play it offline for a period of time. There are proper democratic features, alliances and coalitions. You can build up a proper economy. There will be real trading just like a normal RPG game, no central store or central trading zone/center. Build an army of ships and troops. The universe will be huge so prices for things will differ. You can invade planets, invade a whole solar systems, or a whole galaxy if you like. There will be 4 full fledge alien races for you to be. And there's so much more that I can't even put everything in here like dyanamic balancing and a dynamic research system.

Payment Model?
I'll have to discuss this because this is usually the dealbreaker for a lot of games. This game is not pay to win. One time pay, no speed up buttons, there's membership for some perks but nothing that makes you win.

"The game is so big, in fact, that it almost defies description. There is simply that much to it."
