'Strike Suit Zero' coming to Xbox Live, PSN early next year

By
Strike Suit Zero will be coming to consoles, it has been revealed.

Born Ready Games will release the space combat title on PC before the end of the year, followed by an early 2013 release on Xbox Live and PSN for around £10/$15.

Differences between the two versions will be minimal, and the team will recreate graphical elements to ensure it works effectively on consoles, according to lead programmer Christopher Redden.

"The only thing that won't truly be on console is shadows, but I'm not 100% sure on that because they've only just finished the shadows and they haven't been able to performance-tweak them yet," he told Digital Spy at gamescom.

"The PC version will definitely be better looking than the console, because we're running at a higher resolution. But it's not just going to be a downscale for the console, we'll make sure that if something has to be tweaked to fit on a console then we'll make it [again] for the console.

"If that texture doesn't look great we'll do the texture for the console. But they're 10-year-old hardware, so we have to make concessions."

The PC release will be playable with keyboard and mouse and a controller, while Born Ready Games has been working with hardware manufacturers Logitech and Thrustmaster to ensure full joystick profile support for the game.

Strike Suit Zero takes inspiration from the likes of X-Wing and Freespace, while the game's aesthetics are inspired by Homeworld, a game that made a policy of making space colourful and vibrant.

Acclaimed mech designer Junji Okubo is responsible for the core ship design, while Homeworld composer Paul Ruskay has helmed the score.

The campaign will feature multiple endings, obtained by fully completing each stage's side objectives with upgrades unlocked later in the game.

Post-release content is also planned for the Heroes of the Fleet mode, which are 6- to 8-minute long missions set before the events of the story.
