A Deeper look at Research and Research Customization in Artifact Red-X

LOS ANGELES, CA - May 15, 2013 - Tier2games, a Los Angeles based game developer, provides further insight into hybrid strategy game Artifact Red-X for PC and iOS. This time the team releases information on how players can customize research teams by hand picking each team member based on their expertise, reputation and other important factors.

Research & Development

To advance in ARTIFACT: RED-X and achieve the ultimate goal of conquest, the player must find new ways to overcome the alien inhabitants. Research and development of new weapons, facilities and other advancements will not only aide on the battlefield but also in improving resource refinement, building faster and higher capacity spacecraft and much more. 

Research projects require acquiring alien objects, corpses or other items found during squad away missions and while excavating new facilities and bases. Research teams can be customized by the player to suit their own objectives.

Hiring & Customizing Research Teams

Scientists can be hired and assigned by the player or automatically based on each scientist's abilities and fields of expertise. Not all scientists have the same experience or exposure to alien technologies. Scientists with higher levels of experience or reputation come at a higher price but are more likely to provide results.  But hiring all top notch reputation based scientists can cause conflict and delays. While less experienced scientists may take longer to provide results, they have the ability to gain experience in areas of research that the player requires. The player must find a balance between high profile, experienced scientists and newer and more fluid less-experienced individuals to get the best results.
