Creating a thread for this game to generate support as well as introduce you guys to a new MMO RTS that's on the horizon. So far my opinion on the game is a happy blend between EVE's persistent universe and the strategy and skill required to play a game like Sins of a Solar Empire. They are starting up their beta program really soon to and the gameplay looks great. I put a bunch of the info on the game below for you to get a quick idea of what it is but there is a lot more information on their website. This game will be a free to play game which incorporates micro-transactions as well.
Also one of the main things that makes this game different than either of the above mentioned games is that it incorporates traditional ship to ship warfare mechanics such as firing arcs and the like. Positioning your ship in relation to its weaponry and the enemy is key. Also certain locations on the ship are more vulnerable to attack such as the engines. Lastly the game allows you to customize the units you put out. For example you can make them super defensive, super offensive, really fast, etc. The way you combine different upgrades and the like to your ships will create a military that functions in a more attuned fashion to your style of play.
Lastly one of the other things that is important to Novus Aeterno is the MMO portion of it. Novus incorporates an offline AI that will defend your space while you are not logged in. This way the persistent universe can be maintained for those playing and those who are not there won't lose their territory without a fight. The game is shaping up to be great fun and I really look forward to its arrival.

DescriptionNovus Aeterno is a full Real Time Strategy (RTS) game that takes place in a massive and seamless galaxy full of great opportunities and challenging threats. Players familiar to RTS games will be able to grasp the controls and layout to get right into the action of Novus Aeterno.
The story of Novus Aeterno begins within the aftermath of a catastrophic destruction of the main five empires that had dominated the galaxy. The Verunas, Azsendi, Acaean, Cauldron Born, and our own Human civilisations had reached a high point in domination over their portions of the galaxy. The old empires are now no more and the galaxy is without any stable authority. The player can now enter the scene and determine the course of events between the conflict of various factions and the persistent outcome of further events.
