Developed by Fishlabs Studio, Galaxy on Fire 3D, the original space combat simulation game was first released in 2006 providing a compelling experience that was meant to be memorable for years to come.

After Deep Silver acquired Fishlabs in November 2013, and re-branded the studio as Deep Silver Fishlabs; the revamped company promised even better Galaxy on Fire experience. Now we hear that Galaxy on Fire 3: Manticore is coming to mobile devices and you can imagine the excitement, happiness, and surprise that we underwent upon learning of this. Unfortunately, the game will be released in 2016 for iOS & Android, so we will have to wait until next year but it is absolutely worth waiting for.
The plot will revolve around the far-off Neox Sector, described as ”a lawless fringe area of known space terrorized by ruthless warlords and greedy mercenaries.” You will continue your work as a bounty hunter that will be after the blood-thirsty warlords of Neox Sector. This title is expected to be larger than any game in the company’s previous history and will be a game that will lead in its genre. It will remain true to its Sci-Fi driven shooting & trading theme while unfolding a captivating story to follow and a colossal universe to explore.
