This is what a 10,000 unit space battle looks like

The future of strategy video games?

Oxide Games, a small studio founded by former Civilization developers, has released a video showcasing its 64-bit Nitrous game engine - and it's worth a watch.

The Star Swarm tech demo shows off a 10,000 unit space battle and explains how Nitrous is powered by AMD's Mantle API.

Oxide Games has three Nitrous-fuelled projects in development, it said, and promises to release the Star Swarm tech demo on Steam soon. Civilization 4 lead designer Soren Johnson is using it to build his new project Mars.
