Robot Entertainment working on “Spartan” – Screenshots leaked!

MAJOR NEWS

This will no doubt be very exciting news for Robot Entertainment and Ensemble Studios fans as earlier this morning Kotaku revealed that Microsoft is looking for beta testers to test a “ground breaking new strategy game” titled “Project S“. Soon after the publication of that article an updated article was distributed correcting “Project S” with another codename “Spartan”. Along with the first ever supposed screenshot of the game!

Kotaku also reports that Spartan may well be the games actual name suggesting that this is Robot Entertainment’s Game 1.0 project with Microsoft Game Studios! Exciting stuff. Age fans might be disheartened to see it is not an Age of.. game but never fear the same may have elements of Age of Empires being that it is a strategy game. Alternatively there is a possability that this game could be renamed “Age of..” but that would seem unlikely given the above screenshot. There is likely to be lots of news about this over the day so keep checking back for updates!

Some FAQ’s..

Has Robot Entertainment commented on this news?

No. This news is currently not confirmed by either Microsoft Game Studios or Robot Entertainment. There has been no comment or confirmation that the above is genuine (although we assume it is).

Is this an Age of Empires game?

It doesnt look like it, but it is a strategy game and may have some elements of Age of Empires along with some new ones – maybe RPG elements. Who knows.

Can I sign up to beta test?

As far as I am aware existing Microsoft beta testers for Games for Widnows Live have been emailed inviting them to take part in the testing. If you havn’t got an invite then at this time I do not believe there is a way to join the testing.

Any more news and leaks?

Not yet, but keep checking back!
