Paradox Interactive and developer Creative Forge have joined forces to unveil Ancient Space, a title that the duo describe as "a new story-driven real-time strategy game."

As its title suggests, Ancient Space takes players to the edges of the universe. Specifically, an area known as "The Black Zone." Though objectives vary throughout the game, the core goal of Ancient Space is to build an impressive interstellar fleet that can survive attacks by aliens, space pirates and things that exist only in nebulous regions of the cosmos.

Unlike most real-time strategy games, which are split equally between a b-movie singleplayer campaign and an online multiplayer component, Ancient Space focuses entirely on the former. To that end the developers have enlisted a cast of sci-fi genre regulars to populate the game, including John Billingsley of Star Trek: Enterprise and Dina Meyer of Starship Troopers.

The game is aiming for a release on both Windows and Mac later this year, though no solid release date has yet been given. Those eager for some space action can check out the announcement trailer below.

I totally missed the Homeworld train. From peoples stories of it, it was a splendid game for its time. Oh well, can't catch 'em all.

Homeworld is getting a HD re-release, I'm holding out for that. Played the s*** out of the demo back in the day, it was pretty sweet from what I recall. Nowdays I fear RTS's because I've gotten a perfectionist mindset to games, and yet you can never control every little thing at once in an RTS short of abusing the pause button, and it's just going to leave me anxious... Nexus: The Jupiter Incident had a pretty sweet space based RTS gameplay system where you only controlled a handful of battleships, sort of battlestar galactica style.
