Phoenix Universe of Space Combat or Phoenix USC is an arena based fast action space combat MMO that will support up to 100 players per server (more possible). Players battle it out in arena free space or in a bases. Typical games are capture the flag, team on team and league or wing matches.
Players select a spaceship and weapons to craft a ship to meet their needs. Battling in a rich visual environment players compete in building their scores, stats, wins and kills. If you like fast action, intense and addictive space combat then Phoenix USC is the game for you.
I started this project out of my interest and fondness for fast action space combat games like Subspace and it's evolution in the form Continuum . These games had a purity of game play and were based on the simple idea of battling head to head in a space setting based on a 2D plane sometimes known as a "top down" view. So I have set out to build the next generation in this type of space shooter using my experience and passion to build the game I have always wanted to see happen.
Phoenix USC is my way of furthering the "top down" space combat model to the next level.

I have been hard at work retooling the interfaces and fixing a few last minute bugs. I will be releasing the Phoenix USC Preview Demo on February 21st 2015. The demo is a standalone (no online play) game with up to 300 bots (enemy shios) to battle in an arena combat setting. The demo will run on Windows XP - Winodws 8.1 and should run well on most systems and video cards (Linux and Mac versions to follow at a future date). It will let you experience what the online version of the game will be like. If you are new to Phoenix USC I would encourage you to to check out the videos and information posted here or visit the Phoenix USC web site.
So be here on 2-21-15 to get your copy of the Phoenix USC preview demo. :D
