3-way campaigns?

with the addition of a third faction, i was wondering if they've said how multiplayer galactic campaigns will work. can three people play at once, or is it limited to two people choosing among the factions?

since anytime a battle starts, the game pauses, i don't think it's possible for all three sides to be involved in one battle. and the third person would have to sit around waiting for the resolution.

It wouldnt be too hard, you can have the game freeze like normal for the invader and defender, and a 1 minute timer appears. Then the third player has to get a fleet to the battle before the timer ends if he/she wants to participate.

That would rather interesting. It wouldn't be hard to figure that out. It'd be fine.

i don't think making it a 3 player multiplayer game is possible through mods.

so will the faction that goes unchosen be AI controlled during an MP campaign? or just not in game at all

Will it be possible to have all three factions play against each other in single player Galactic Conquest? I can see why the battles might still be only 1 vs 1, but on the Galactic map it would be great to have three factions instead of two.

I thought I read/heard somewhere that you could at the very least do a 3-player skirmish. If this is the case, I don't see why you couldn't do a 3-way conquest. The only difficulty is what to do with that 3rd player while 2 others are fighting a tactical battle...

The devs said that it's possible in skirmish, but not conquest. It is a game engine limit, in other words it would have to be something changed for a sequel, sadly.

Basically add a new base location for the corrupt team. This is why maps are going to be bigger in size now.
