Here's a little more information on Starfall Tactics, taken straight from the official FAQ. By the way, these codes will also be valid for additional tests in the future.
What kind of game is this?
Starfall Tactics is a real-time wargame that mixes tactical combat with in-depth spaceship customization. Players can build a unique spaceship flotilla, collect blueprints to unlock new parts and weapons and test their tactics against skilled opponents.
What is the gameplay like? Is it a wargame? An RTS?
It's a bit of both, actually. As a wargame, Starfall Tactics primarily focuses on the tactical elements of combat, where the action revolves around fleets and each individual unit's capabilities, rather than whole armies. There is also no base building or extensive economy management, although players do get to make interesting choices in this area.
At the same time, RTS players will feel right at home in Starfall Tactics, due to familiar controls and UI elements, as well as similar gameplay notions.
What platforms will Starfall Tactics be available for?
We are currently focused on PC Windows. The availability/schedule for Linux and Mac versions is to be determined.
Will the game be available on Steam, Desura, etc.?
We hope that Starfall Tactics will be available on a variety of distribution platforms. When the time comes, we plan to submit the game to different platform holders for approval.
What are the system requirements?
The game hasn't been yet optimized, so it’s hard to provide accurate specs. However, based on other Unreal Engine 4 games, our best guess at the moment is:
DirectX 9 compatible Graphics card NVIDIA GTX 460+ or Radeon HD 2600+
2.0 Ghz CPU, dual core
4 GB RAM
When will the game be released?
Tentative launch window is Q4 2016. We plan to release the game's Alpha in Q2 2016. The game will be continuously supported and updated based on player feedback gathered in this time period.
