Secure Alien Crash Sites for Ruthless Governments
in the Tactical Multiplayer Game RAM Pressure
Pre-orders are now live, launching in Q1 2019
MOSCOW – Sept. 19, 2018 – RAM Pressure, the intense third-person multiplayer tactical game from Russian studios GDT and QuadCom, will be heading to Steam in Q1 2019. A tactical story-driven multiplayer game combining the turn-based combat of X-COM with a deep, well-grounded sci-fi setting, RAM Pressure will feature a massive selection of weapons, classes, and skills in heated gun battles across the world.
In physics, “ram pressure” is a pressure exerted on a body moving through a fluid medium, caused by relative bulk motion of the fluid rather than random thermal motion. It causes a drag force to be exerted on the body. . . . A meteoroid traveling supersonically through Earth’s atmosphere produces a shock wave generated by the extremely rapid compression of air in front of the meteoroid. It is primarily this ram pressure (rather than friction) that heats the air that in turn heats the meteoroid as it flows around it.
Story & Gameplay
In the near future, Earth is hit by an unusual meteorite swarm: the remains of alien fleets decimated by an ancient galactic war. To avoid widespread panic, world governments hide the truth from the population by sending elite mercenary squads to crash sites – gaining access to the alien technology before anyone else can do the same. As leaders of competing paramilitary organizations, players have to successfully scout, secure, and deliver the weapons and intel found in each alien crash site to paying governments indifferent to loss of life. In time – while performing extremely dangerous incursions for alien artifacts – players begin to lift the veil behind government conspiracies and state-sponsored attempts to use alien technology to control the world’s population. This is only the tip of the iceberg as far as “first contact” goes: Humanity faces a much more serious threat that could lead to the total eradication of mankind.
In RAM Pressure, players will engage in pitched battles against other units as well hostile intelligence services. The goal? Establish contact with any surviving alien beings and uncover the factors that led to the extinction of their civilization. To succeed, players will need to equip and customize their soldiers to make them a well oiled, effective fighting force … eventually gaining knowledge of secrets literally beyond imagination.
“Working on RAM Pressure along with QuadCom has been a blast,” says Andrey Sharapov, business development director and general producer at GDT. “We’re all major fans of the X-COM franchise, along with tactical games and hard science fiction. RAM Pressure gives us an opportunity to break some rules and take the genre into a new direction.”
“As we completed work on the first prototype with GDT, the gameplay was already firing on all cylinders – but our teams wanted more,” adds Nikolay Sitnikov, founder of QuadCom Interactive. “Our goal is to deliver a deep sci-fi narrative told through both single-player and multiplayer story missions – and I think we’re achieving that.”
