A mixture of shooter and RTS for PC has been announced

Silica is designed to be a combination of a first-person shooter and a classic real-time strategy game. The game was initially planned for PC only and should initially be available as an early access title. With the announcement of the official announcement, you can now have the first experience of the game with an interesting concept.

A game with a story

There is a story not only in the game itself, but also outside it: the sole developer of Silica is Martin Melichárek, who also played a major role in the Take on Mars project. Melechrek came up with the idea for silica back in 2008. Since then there have been repeated delays before his dream finally seemed to come true.

Silica is set in the year 2351, in the deserts of an exoplanet thousands of light-years from Earth. Here are up to 3 factions fighting for control of the planet and its valuable resources. There will be two human armies and one alien army. In addition, you can expect 3 game modes and more than 20 different units.

The trick: Either you play the role of the commander in the strategy mode, or you play as a soldier who controls the vehicles directly on the battlefield and fights against the enemies. Practical: If you switch from RTS to FPS, the AI ​​will control the units.

Early Access offers the first content

Once you go into early access, you should start with 6 different regions. In addition to the single player mode, you can choose to compete with or against like-minded people. Up to 32 participants must be supported. On top of that, there’s an impressive number of units to start with: 11 different vehicles, five infantry classes, 8 space units, and even AI controllers.

There is no release date for Silica yet. First of all, the game has to go through 9-12 months of early access on Steam. So early access should start soon. This link will take you directly to the game’s website.
