Star Trek Armada 2 is the sequel to the best-selling Star Trek RTS, Star Trek Armada. Star Trek Armada 2 adds a new level of strategy and realism to the original by allowing players to command from a 3D tactical view. Set in The Next Generation universe, the game's story unfolds through three single-player campaigns played as the Federation, Klingons and Borg. Additionally, the Cardassians, Romulans and Species 8472 will join the fray throughout the single-player campaigns.
Star Trek Armada 2’s sweeping 3D gameplay immerses gamers in a universe of space, supremacy and survival, with more ships, longer campaigns and all-out battles. Fleets can be arranged in many different 3D formations with up to 16 ships, which dramatically affect strategic and tactical decisions. The outcome of every encounter depends on the player's ability to manage resources, crew and fleets of ships across the galaxy.
Players command the fleets of three different races through three separate single player campaigns for a total of 30 missions. Additionally, gamers can take control of six separate races in multiplayer. Each has divergent combat styles and tactical approaches.
Star Trek Armada 2 allows the player to become fully immersed in the explosive battles with the addition of the Tactical View mode, a ship-to-ship combat viewer that allows you to control fleets right on top of the action.
