Haarlem, The Netherlands - 17 February 2012 - Videogame published Iceberg Interactive and game developer Ntronium Games announce that the space strategy game "Armada 2526 Gold Edition” for PC has now been released in retail in the UK, Benelux and German speaking territories, as well as via digital download. The Gold Edition contains the deep ‘4x’ turn based space strategy game “Armada 2526”, its official add-on “Supernova”, several additional alien races (making it 18) and the latest updates.
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “Armada 2526 has been a pleasant success for us since its original release, attracting a large audience of space conquering gamers.

Compiling the Gold Edition was something we felt we owed the many ‘4x’ fans out there.”
About Armada 2526 Gold Edition
Lead one of 18 different alien races to become a mighty pan-galactic empire. Manage your colonies, deploy your fleets and conduct research. Plot your strategy and turn your planets into mighty bastions. Explore new star systems, where you may encounter tachyon storms, psychic plants, primitives or find abandoned alien technology. Diplomacy is of utter importance in being successful. Make pacts and alliances, make threats or ask for favours – and when the time is right, replace diplomacy by space combat and fight it out in real-time 3D.
The trade system lets you trade valuable commodities between both your own and alien worlds. Alien relics, rare minerals, tourists, or even natural anti-matter, your freighters will carry them all. Although the game is complex, and the possible strategies endless, powerful help and advisor features, help you get up to speed quickly. Unlike many games in this genre, Armada 2526 focuses on providing a game that can be finished in a reasonable time, and emphasizes battle and strategy over economic micro-management. All with one purpose: to emerge victorious and conquer the galaxy with your armada.
