Welcome to episode 24 of the Element 270 podcast! A podcast all about Spartan Games.

 

In this episode Giles and Reese are joined by Neil Fawcett of Spartan Games to discuss the outlook and releases for 2015.

 

In episode 23 we talked about the release schedule for Dystopian Wars over the course of 2015, in this episode we take some time to discuss the releases for Dystopian Legions, Firestorm Armada and Firestorm Planetfall.

It should be noted that Neil had no timeline for the release of the Dramos set - it's something that is still under development. But yeah, I am hugely excited about the idea of that as well!

Interesting thing to note in that podcast also is that Neil said the Recon Helix will be bringing a lot of the Heavy Infantry for people.. so i'm starting to think most people will get something more akin to the Terquai Recon Helix than the Works Raptor in terms of flavour. Interesting, as I had the Assault Helix pegged for where we would probably see Heavy Infantry turn up, hmmm. Also, aiming for potential dual Aerial and Recon Helix launch, woop! \o/

Yep. Only downside is that it still seems several months in the future, but "all good things..." etc, with the remaining allied helices coming before (And I guess the triple release of RoF, RC and CoA for Legions will require all the manufacturing capacity for a while...)

Then again, it should be sometime this summer, which will be here soon enough...

Im curious what helix would sit opposite them in the chart, maybe an Infantry Core helix and a Spec Ops helix. The first would provide lots of multipurpose infantry and the other would provide specialised roles?

The thing about Planetfall that stood out to me was that Spartan basically has everything ready, but just wants to spread out the releases so that customers and stores aren't overwhelmed. This shows that the game isn't going to stall because of other games (most notably Halo, which many have worried will "take over Spartan" when it comes out).

Thinking the Infantry Breacher Helix will just be an alternate Assault Helix. Also see the possibility for "anti fortification" Breacher Heavy/Aerial/Leviathan Helixes, aka Anti-infantry & cover guns aplenty.
