Allegiance was one of the most underrated games of recent times and perhaps a little ahead of its time which unfortunately meant it never really took off. The good news is that Microsoft has released the source code for the space action/strategy title. The download will set you back 511 Mb and can be picked up from Microsoft here.
“Allegiance was an incredible experience for the development team. We were all first-timers, trying our best to create a fun, innovative, challenging game. We think we succeeded there, even if we failed at being commercially successful. Allegiance seemed to die all too soon for a variety of reasons. But we’ve been amazed at the level to which some of the Allegiance fans have remained hard-core. We’re astounded at the progress that has been made at creating new factions, hosting new servers, replacing authentication, etc.”
It seems that Allegiance hasn’t really died.
