Its a Steam download, and is free to play for 2 weeks. You can check out the game on the main site RTS Game • APOX

Thanks for sharing this!

I am always looking for science fiction themed games regardless if they are post apocolyptic or a space opera.

At a glance I thought this looked a little something like the Men of War series which utilizes similar mechanics such as taking enemy vehicles and weapons in addition to ballistics. If you get a chance I highly recomend checking out the currently free open beta on Steam for Men of War: Assault Squad, there's two single player skirmishes you can play or larger variety of multipler matches. To date I think Men of War is by far one of the top ranking war RTS games available on the PC - infintely better then Company of Heroes, if you get past some cheesy voice acting during the campaigns.

Just looked at Men of War and Apox.

They are so so similar.

Both look good though. Might give them a go.
