The FPS/RTS hybrid has been attempted before, but perhaps never by a man with a history like Nolan Bushnell. The Atari founder and creator of Pong is working on Battleswarm: Field of Honor, a game said to be a blend of hit RTS StarCraft and action packed movie Starship Troopers.

In the game players will be split into two groups: one will play as the bugs in an RTS game and the others will play the game as an FPS as they attempt to kill all the bugs.

"Battleswarm is really about me being able to play against my sons [laughs]. I've got five sons, age 16 through 30. They're all avid gamers and like first-person shooters. The problem is, as you get older, you lose some reaction time, and as a result, I'm getting slaughtered by them," Bushnell told USA Today. “A real-time strategy [RTS] game, however, is more my [preference], a good resource game is what I love. Battleswarm is both an RTS and a shooter, a mash-up between StarCraft and Starship Troopers, if you will. You can switch sides, too, if you feel like an RTS instead of a shooter, or vice-versa.”

Battleswarm has currently only been announced for the PC.

Will have to keep an eye on this. Bushnell is indeed a legend.

This sounds very intriguing, actually. Something clearly different, and unique. As long as it is even competent, it could be a huge hit.

Semi-related : Bushnell is also the founder of the Chucky Cheese restaurant chain!

RTS Starcraft and action like Starship Troopers? Interesting.
