in today's news we'll focus on the Goa'uld as we've made essential progress there that we want to share with you.
You are already familiar with the new hover tank - but how about the infantry? As you know many different types of Jaffa were introduced in the Stargate SG-1 TV series. A lot of them just had tattoos on their forehead, however, there were also those who wore special helmets - and these are the ones which we want to present to you today.
Of course you recognized them: The Anubis Guard, the Horus Guard and the Serpent Guard. These three Jaffa types will fulfill a certain role in Anubis' ground forces. While the regular Jaffa will only be lightly armored and serve their role as a standard infantry the Serpent Guard will act as heavy infantry unit and be capable of taking on stronger opponents. The Horus Guard will be used for anti-air purposes and the Anubis Guard as an anti-vehicle unit. However, they will not be available from the beginning: In the story GC's you have to defeat the respective system lord in order to integrate them into the forces of the most powerful Goa'uld of all time.
Speaking of Anubis, can you recognize this planet?
Since no designation was assigned to this planet in the TV series, we have decided to call it "Mastarba". It will be Anubis' homeworld in the GCs and also be available as a skirmish map.
We're making notable progress with the galactic conquests and with the next news we're going to present you some progress of the ground part. Furthermore, we've started working on a very special GC to shorten the time waiting for the ground part to be finished. It will be a space-only GC and include a short story line which many of you asked us to do. We hope to be able to present you the first information about it soon so make sure to drop by from time to time!
Finally let's have a short glimpse beyond the horizon. This winter, we'll bring you a new skirmish feature that has never been part of any FoC mod before. Prepare yourselves for the ultimate battle for earth, defend the planet and change the fate of the galaxy! (Try to read this with an epic voice:D)
Stay tuned for more in the next news!
This is the first part of out Goa'uld themed news special.
