REMASTERED AND UPDATED FOR STEAM RELEASE
Released Mar 2014
The game uses our legacy game engine first released in 2009 for the original Echo Squad SE. The much larger Universal Combat Collector’s Edition v2.0 game is also derived from this engine.
Here is the changelog listing what work went into this Steam release compared to the original 2008-09 release.
Unlike our other larger capital ship series (Battlecruiser, Universal Combat) Echo Squad SE takes place within the confines of the Terran Quadrant which spans the following star systems. So in sandbox mode, you are restricted to this quadrant.
SOL, ALPHA CENTAURI, BARNARD’S STAR, SIRIUS, OMICRON ERIDANI, TAU CETI, POLARIS, PROCYON
This is a high-end and very challenging space/planetary combat game. It is not your standard pew-pew shooter which you are going to breeze through in one sitting. And though you can access the manual from within the game, as well as having a voice narrated tutorial, you will have to read that manual. You have been warned. So you better get started.
If after reading the manual, the tutorial and perusing the game commands you are still clearly alive, then you’re in good shape and well on your way to giving those Insurgents a taste of their own medicine.
If you are having issues, please read the FAQ.
In their wake, they left a splintered Galactic Command (GALCOM) alliance still engaged in a fierce battle with insurgents who oppose the alliance.
