Distant Worlds: Universe
A new chapter will soon be written in the grand space saga of Distant Worlds. This sci-fi series praised as “a worthy successor to Master of Orion” (Eurogamer.dk), “a true space empire game” (Gamers Hall), “a small revolution in 4X strategy game” (PC4War), is now flying towards infinity with its ultimate collection: Universe.
Distant Worlds: Universe is the much anticipated stand-alone package which gathers all previous releases of the series. Emphasis was placed on the community as the game features advanced modding tools to allow players to develop extra content and set up their own galaxies and epic storylines. Thanks to a user-friendly in-game editor and a comprehensive modding guide, even beginners will be able to create unique galaxies with intricate plots.
This collector’s edition also introduces a new scenario covering the ancient galaxy and the first war between the Freedom Alliance and the Shaktur Axis in which players will get access to powerful technologies and new weapons, including the ability to build planet destroyers.
Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games, said “We are very excited to announce Distant Worlds: Universe to the community and finally make the Distant Worlds series available in one package. As usual, it includes many small improvements across the game, but the most exciting feature is the new expanded modding support. Every part of the game is now open for modding and Universe will give all players a common starting point to create and share mods that allow you to customize and define your own universe.”
Matrix Games and Code Force are currently finalizing Distant Worlds: Universe which is set to be released in May 2014.
