Type: Press Release

Find out how to plan and execute the expansion of your empire through new colonies, mining stations and construction yards with this latest video

Matrix Games and Code Force (www.codeforce.co.nz) are thrilled to release another new video for their highly anticipated 4X space strategy game, Distant Worlds!  This latest video details the mechanics behind the planning and execution of your expansion throughout the galaxy, from colonization of new planets and construction of gas and mineral mining stations to the management of your construction yards and resources.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Distant Worlds provides rich strategic gameplay without bogging the player down in a complicated and involved interface. The ease with which you can plan your expansion throughout these detailed galaxies puts near limitless excitement at your fingertips!”

 

Distant Worlds is a vast, real-time, 4X space strategy game. Experience the full depth and detail of large turn-based strategy games, but with the simplicity and ease of real-time, and on the scale of a massively-multiplayer online game.

 

Vast galaxies are made to order: up to 1400 star systems, with up to 50,000 planets, moons and asteroids. Galaxies are so deep, fun and immersive that you won’t want to finish the game... Build, expand and improve your empire endlessly. The galaxy is packed with life and activity. Encounter other empires, independent alien colonies, traders, pirates and space monsters. Explore star systems, asteroid fields, gas clouds, supernovae, galactic storms and black holes. Discover evidence of civilizations long since past, uncovering secrets about the galaxy's troubled history...

 

Best of all, you can play the game your way: enjoy a quick, intense game in a crowded galaxy or take your time in an epic game spread across a vast galaxy!

"Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” (Oliver Cromwell – English military and political leader)

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for religious, political or dynastic causes. The greatest powers of that period were regularly involved in conflicts and struggles to increase their dominance over the continent. Some countries have also to deal with inner tensions and are torn apart between factions. War is in the air. But war has changed. Due to the development of new technologies, traditional medieval tactics have been substituted with a totally different approach to effectively utilise the new formations and weapons.
