Galaxy on Fire: Alliances announced, free-to-play MMO real-time strategy game for Android

Galaxy on Fire
If you are a fan of the Galaxy on Fire series by Fishlabs Entertainment, we have some great news for you. Galaxy on Fire: Alliances has just been announced, bringing the series into MMO real-time strategy territory.

The upcoming MMORTS will run on a proprietary game engine called ABYSS 3, the same engine used in the other Galaxy on Fire games. The game will also be cross-platform for iOS and Android users and will be fully rendered in 3D.

Galaxy on Fire: Alliances focuses on three different factions: the Terrans, Vossk and Niveliens. The game itself allows you to work with other human players to advance your colonies and fight against your enemies, or you can play out an “us against the world” strategy if you so prefer.

As you can see, this MMORTS could potentially be a lot of fun not only for current fans of the series, but RTS gamers in general. So when is it actually coming? Unfortunately, iOS gets the game first with the Android version to fully shortly thereafter. No exact word on release dates for either platform just yet.

Real Racing 3 for Android arrives on February 28

Real Racing 3
Good news, racing game fans, the wait is almost over! EA Mobile has set February 28 as the release date of the much-anticipated game Real Racing 3. When the big day comes, the app can be downloaded simultaneously on iOS, Android, and Amazon Appstore. Perhaps even more amazing is the fact that, unlike its predecessor, Real Racing 3 is free to play.

Given the awesome features that developer Firemonkeys teased fans bit by bit, there is no doubt in considering Real Racing 3 to be one of the best racing games of the year. For instance, the Time Shift Multiplayer allows players to compete against fellow human opponents even without an Internet connection during the race. The game simply records the best performance of opposing players and let the AI control the cars and replicate their driving skills and track times, so that players don’t need to be online at the same time.

Besides the unique multiplayer mode, there are also realistic physics, gorgeous race tracks, and a wide selection of cars to look forward to.
