Back to News Listing Distant Worlds Updated Again!

Type: Press Release

The highly acclaimed 4X “Living Galaxy” Sci-Fi strategy game gets a significant post-release update focusing on bug fixes and AI and automation improvements

Matrix Games and CodeForce (www.codeforce.co.nz) are pleased to announce a significant new post-release update for Distant Worlds!  This new v1.0.4.9 update includes over a dozen important bug fixes as well as major improvements to friendly and enemy AI and automation.  Additional economic balancing is also included to fine-tune the 1.0.4 economy and fix an issue with uncapped corruption.  Especially improved are troop and agent automation as well as the way the private sector handles its own economic assets if it starts to run in the red.

 

For the best play experience, Matrix Games strongly recommends that all owners of Distant Worlds upgrade to v1.0.4.9.  While 1.0.4.9 will work fine with older saved games, we also strongly recommend starting new games with 1.0.4.9 as some of the bug fixes will not work with saved games from older versions.

 

With Distant Worlds, gamers can experience a “living galaxy” with endless options and replayability, command  vast empires that span many star system and engage in research, diplomacy, ship design, espionage, trade, combat and more! Be sure to check out the long list of promo videos available for Distant Worlds in addition to the three new screenshots of a few of the beautifully detailed alien races found in the game!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Distant Worlds continues to improve in response to feedback from our customers and this significant update is another step along the way.  We’re delighted with how Distant Worlds has been received by gamers and reviewers alike and the best is yet to come!  It’s great to see that every day more gamers get their hands on Distant Worlds and start creating their own epic tales of galactic conquest!”

 

Distant Worlds is a vast, pausable real-time, 4X space strategy game. You can run the game as slow or as fast as you like, with intelligent advisors and many different settings for warnings and auto-pause triggers to help you manage your empire at your own pace.  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!

Pandora: Eclipse of Nashira gets release date

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Since the release of Pandora: First Contact in late 2013, developers from Proxy Studios have been carefully collecting players’ feedback and thinking about the pros and cons that were highlighted by the community. At the core of this debate were requests about the diversity in this 4X sci-fi game, and the richness of the diplomatic relations between the factions. As a result the team has been working hard to make the game deeper and released several patches and a free expansion – Return of Messari – that went in this direction, and brought brand new content with a game changer that ensured fun and challenge for the late game.

To End All Wars is now available!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

“This war, like the next war, is a war to end war.” (David Lloyd George – UK Prime Minister)

One hundred years ago today, Russian and German forces were standing facing each other in East Prussia. This early confrontation on the Eastern Front – known as the Battle of Tannenberg - resulted in the almost complete destruction of the Russian Second Army and the suicide of their main commander, Samsonov. On the German side the battle made Paul von Hindenburg famous for the rest of the war, and proved that moving troops quickly by train could bring a decisive advantage. Technology was an asset that could make all the difference in the years to come…
