Press Release Aug. 10th - BattleGoat Meets Press in Leipzig

August 10th, 2007
Ancaster, Ontario, Canada - BattleGoat Studios is pleased to announce that they will be giving the press and the public a first look at the next installment in their Supreme Ruler franchise at the Leipzig Games Convention later this month. Scheduled for release in May 2008, Supreme Ruler 2020 adds many new features, building on the success of the award winning Supreme Ruler 2010. Lead Designer and studio co-founder David Thompson commented, “We’ve taken into account all of the suggestions of our player base and then some. Not all of the details are for public consumption yet, but I’m very excited about the new features. Also, the biggest criticism we heard about SR2010 was its approachability for new players. With SR2020 we’ve re-worked the Player Interface to make it more intuitive and easier for beginners while at the same time being very careful NOT to remove the depth and detail that our players expect.”

Some of the improvements that BattleGoat have made in the sequel:
  • Use of 3D for both Map Elements and Military Units
    Much higher resolution satellite imagery
    Improved sound and music
    A streamlined Player Interface
    Many more options for Gameplay including World ‘Sandbox’ mode and new Campaigns
    Improvements to AI, Diplomacy, Multiplayer, and much more
More details on the changes will be announced as BattleGoat moves towards a Beta testing later this fall.
