The Battle of Polytopia, a popular 4X strategy game developed by independent developer Midjiwan AB, has received a big update: Diplomacy, a completely new technology in the Tech Tree. The technology is now available for free in the latest editions of Polytopia on the App Store, Google Play, and Steam, and contains a variety of unique features such as Peace Treaties, Embassies, Tribe Relations, and more.
Diplomacy Tech will take the game to a whole new level of fun
The new capabilities in Diplomacy allow players to make alliances with other humans and AI, construct embassies, locate player capitals, dispatch spies and execute sophisticated sneak attacks from seemingly nowhere. To master and counter the new set of tools in their arsenal, players must be alert.
Both single-player and multiplayer modes are supported by Diplomacy Tech. At its foundation, the technology was designed to allow players to work together to defeat greater opponents. However, there can only be one winner at the end of the day.
Key features of Diplomacy Tech in The Battle of Polytopia
Here are some of the special features of the Diplomacy Tech:
- Peace Treaties: Become friends with former enemies until one of you calls it quits. Teammates cannot attack one another and can share roads.
- Cloaks: These infiltration specialists are trained in the arts of subterfuge and clandestine operations and arrive armed with two new abilities: Stealth and Infiltrate. Cloaks are invisible to enemy units until they perform an action.
- Tribe Relations: With Tribe Relations systems, players can evaluate which tribe they can become friends with. Colored bubbles offer detailed explanations of what the tribes think of them.
- Embassies: Diplomatic buildings that can only be built in other tribes’ capitals when players are not at war with them. Embassies reveal the surrounding eight tiles and provide monetary rewards every turn.
- Daggers: Rebels incited to action by the Cloak to attack an enemy city. Daggers are the ultimate surprise attack guerrilla warfare units, meaning enemies won’t retaliate when they pounce.
- Capital Vision: View the Capital City location of any tribe you’ve encountered. Capital Vision will also take effect when players meet someone new, thus aiding them in making tactical decisions.
