Step Inside the Ship with Dark Horizon

Paradox Interactive has confirmed details surrounding the RPG-focused features of Dark Horizon, the upcoming space action combat simulator for the PC.

Dark Horizon's ship customization feature is one of the most advanced ship customizations released to date. The customization options of the ship are not only visual, but gameplay-oriented as well.

"There is a challenging balance dynamic that lies behind the ship customization; it revolves around the fact you can't create 'perfect' ship. Each time you customize your ship, you have to take into account the purpose of the next mission and then chose appropriate tech kit", said Timur Lazarenko, Lead Programmer on Dark Horizon. "Depending on the exact customization of the ship, the player can pilot highly maneuverable fighters, try out a heavy-armored-bomber, or even opt for a hybrid style of play. With the game's multitude of hulls, reactors, armor and shield systems, the customization options are endless."

In addition to its highly advanced ship design options, Dark Horizon features an epic storyline in which players must place the fate of the universe of Enosta in their hands. By joining with other sentient beings across the galaxy in the fight against the mysterious force known as the Mirk, adventurers have the opportunity to save billions of lives and become the champions of a battle that will forever change Enosta.

Dark Horizon will be available for purchase in stores and for digital download at GamersGate. The game is set to ship on September 23rd in North America and September 26th in Europe.
