Post-Apocalyptic RTS Game "APOX" Released on Steam

Hyderabad, India (January 20 th, 2011) - BlueGiant Interactive is pleased to announce that APOX is now available on Steam. APOX has successfully completed four months of Beta testing involving fifteen thousand players. APOX is also available on Direct2Drive. The game will also be coming to retail stores in Germany, Russia, and other countries soon.

APOX is a real-time strategy game that uniquely includes gameplay concepts from first-person shooters.  Like in an FPS, you can prone, crouch, switch active weapons, throw grenades, and loot corpses.  Soldiers in APOX have limited ammo, but ammo sharing is done seamlessly.  Soldiers can be placed in vehicles, and this essentially lets you create your own unit designs.  APOX keeps everything that makes RTS great like making bases, controlling strategic sites, and managing your resources. 

The eight missions included are designed to show basic combat and explain the unique aspects to APOX's gameplay.  From there, players can play in one of 100 scrimmage maps against AI-controlled bots.  Players can play with their friends against bots in co-op mode or play against other people in versus mode.
