Sigma Theory: Global Cold War will sneakily exit Early Access this week

Control an intelligence agency and spy on a cold war-ridden world in the turn-based espionage game Sigma Theory: Global Cold War.

Sigma Theory: Global Cold War will finally be exiting Early Access on Steam and formally releasing later this week, the game’s developers have announced. You can get your hands on the full release as soon as the 21st of November, when the game hits version 1.0.

Here’s how the developers pitch the game:

In the near future, a paradigm-shifting scientific discovery looms over the world, promising radical new technologies. The world’s superpowers realize they could have the power to destroy the global financial system, wipe out entire countries or even gain access to immortality.

However, this discovery — called “The Sigma Theory” — can only be harnessed by a handful of scientists. You are placed at the head of your country’s Sigma division. Your objective is to ensure that it is your nation that reaps the benefits of Sigma Theory before anyone else.

To achieve this you will have powerful resources at your disposal: a cadre of the world’s most elite covert agents, advanced tactical drones and, of course, your own skills in diplomacy and subterfuge.

Here’s what the devs say is in store for the 1.0 release of the game:

  • Shiny New UI Improvements! Even more fluid than before.
  • New keyboard shortcuts! Overrule your opponent with your lightning speed!!
  • New sound effects. So smooth, so clean.
  • New buildings for exfiltration. It’s like a whole new world opening before your eyes!
  • Even more bug fixes because bugs SUCK!!

Bear in mind that Version 1.0 is only a stepping stone to further updates to the game. The work of an intelligence agency is, after all, never done.
