Russian independent developer Team Rez and publisher Valkyrie Initiative have blasted off with their sci-fi space RPG action game Orange Cast on Steam. Daring gamers are now able to dive into this unique space cold war adventure inspired by James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse series.
Set in the year 2046 the story begins during a space cold war. At this point in time all of the great Earth nations have colonized Mars where they have also constructed massive space fleets. Only the bravest and most daring will answer the call and become an elite space trooper of humanity. Always ready to answer the call to action, these so-called Uber-Units or rather players will be at the mercy of the vast dark coldness of space.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles, this Soviet and Western science fiction adventure puts players in the lead. After a massive and devastating attack on Scion Colony players take on an investigation role where they will explore what is happening and what is this new threat to all humankind.
There is always something to do or something to be done. From action-packed shoot-outs to old-fashioned space exploration of strange alien places there are plenty of opportunities in space. To find one of these opportunities all one has to do is to seek them out. Dialogs, story choices, and secondary quests all help to explore the game’s lore. Every one of these different game elements are connected in a way so that they play off of each other to deliver a unique gameplay experience.
Orange Cast launched earlier today on Steam for Windows PC at the price of $16.99 USD. Until January 28, 2021 a 15% launch discount is available that prices the game at $14.44 USD. More information about Orange Cast can be found on the game’s Steam page.
