Allegiance is a multiplayer space-combat game from the minds of Microsoft Research. Taking place on the MSN Gaming Zone, you can elect to get into the action immediately in death-match style arenas, or pledge Allegiance to one of the diverse Factions and join a squadron. When you play on the Allegiance Zone, you can engage hundreds of players in death-match style arenas, compete in tournaments, and access exclusive additional civilizations.
Defend the honor of one of three unique factions. You can choose between 18 fighter craft and 20 distinct weapon types. Create massive space stations, or captain 16 different capital ships. Enter environments rich with asteroids, planets, novas, nebulae, and naturally occurring wormholes. Utilize all your senses.
Fully 3D stereo sounds and force feedback joystick support add visceral impact to game events like collisions, failing shields, passing capital ships, and weapon fire. Blow your enemies away. Stunning, colorful effects and explosions intensify the furious combat experience.
Break free from predictable wingmen and drone enemies. Allegiance is built from the ground-up, to be an evolving, unpredictable challenge with and against other humans. Form your alliances carefully. Allegiance supports up to six teams of between 3 and 15 players each. Varying win conditions like deathmatch, deathwatch, property, capture the flag, and conquest provide a diverse gameplay experience. The pace is furious and the combat is frenzied.
