Beyond the Gates of Antares is a brand new science fiction universe from Rick Priestley: the creator of the Warhammer 40,000 game universe and YOU!
We’re creating an entirely original setting for a new and original game – a new idea for new times. At last here is a game that takes science-fiction wargaming forward, with a fresh and unsettling vision of a future where mankind has spread amongst the stars… and changed. Changed into a species so much more than human… and so much less!

|GoA is the world’s first real-time dynamic gaming universe. That's a mighty statement and a bit of a mouthful, so for now let's just say we are talking about our online 'metagame'. Let us explain. We are inviting players to register to take part in our extensive series of online campaigns and adventures - we call them 'episodes'. We'll be creating lots of episodes and they will vary from huge star-spanning military campaigns that last for many months and potentially years, to raids and surgical strikes that start and finish in a day. It's all real-time remember! Feed us the results of your battles (through our website or smartphone App) and we'll use your data to determine which of the game's factions wins control of each of the different fighting zones, and ultimately which faction is victorious in that particular episode. |
As the different episodes are real events happening in the Antarean universe YOU really do get a chance to affect the history of Antarean space! Furthermore, there are numerous rewards to be gained from each episode, and these will be made available as new technologies, in-game bonuses, and secret information that will give your faction an advantage in future episodes.
In some cases we'll be introducing new types of weapons, new alien species, or newly discovered artefacts which can be captured by one of the factions during the episode. We'll use this information to organise our modelling schedules, so it will actually affect how we prioritise our model making too, giving successful factions a head-start in acquiring the latest weapons for example. And finally... when the deeds are truly glorious, we'll offer the ultimate accolade and select one of the participating player's own characters to make as a model... incorporating you and your fighting forces into the history of Antarean Space for all time!
