The second expansion to this highly successful series comes amidst our famed holiday sale for extra savings!

Matrix Games, Slitherine and Code Force are thrilled to announce the release of Distant Worlds – Legends. The hotly awaited second expansion to the famed 4x strategy series, Distant Worlds!

With our massive holiday sale currently going strong, now has never been a better time to jump in a starship and head to Distant Worlds. The base game is now on sale for $26.99 and its expansion Return of the Shakturi is $16.99 (both prices are for the digital download) – that means both titles are selling for 33% off until January 8th!

As an added bonus to existing Distant Worlds fans, through the duration of the holiday sale Distant Worlds – Legends will be priced at $5 off the regular price, or the same discount given to newcomers to the series who take advantage of our bundle discount. That means that anyone can receive the price reduction and buy Legends for $19.99 without having to purchase another Distant Worlds title along with it to activate the bundle discount. Note that Distant Worlds – Legends REQUIRES the full Distant Worlds game and the Return of the Shakturi expansion.

After the holiday sale and discounted pricing ends, Distant Worlds will return to its price of $39.99 Download / $49.99 Physical and Return of the Shakturi and Legends will return to their normal price of $24.99, but both expansions will also be available for $19.99 if purchased together with another Distant Worlds title as a bundle.

Distant Worlds: Legends is the highly anticipated second expansion to the critically acclaimed 4X space strategy game Distant Worlds. Legends is a huge step forward which brings the Distant Worlds universe to life. A new character system includes Leaders, Admirals, Generals, Governors, Ambassadors, Scientists and Agents, each with defined abilities and traits and opportunities to advance and grow over time. Expanded gameplay for all existing races includes new race-specific events, technologies and victory conditions which create a completely different game depending on your choices. An expanded tech tree also awaits, with dedicated carriers, cutting lasers, rail guns, new planetary facilities and wonders, and much more (including a new hidden faction)!

Distant Worlds: Legends also includes a new model for borders and spheres of influence for each faction, as well as new fleet management and automation commands. The interface has been improved with additional overlays for the main galaxy map, including route indicators for all ships and fleet posture indicators, all to make it easier to keep track of activity and strategy. A new setup option allows galaxies to also be larger in map size as well as number of stars. Empire Policies have been expanded with new options and Diplomacy has been overhauled to be much more intelligent and to include mining and refueling rights. Finally, the AI has been improved in all areas and modding support has been greatly expanded to allow modders to take full advantage of all the new features.

All of this together makes Distant Worlds: Legends an essential addition to the vast, living galaxy of Distant Worlds!

Please note: Distant Worlds – Legends REQUIRES ownership of the original full Distant Worlds game and the Return of the Shakturi expansion.

I'll get it now too... with the German glitch through Vanilla though. Still that does never stop me from playing a game. I got a game were whole passages of texts went missing instead of some "Umlaute (Ä Ö Ü)" without patching two versions of language together.

It works fine for me. Bad browser!

Edit: Didn't see it first... you don't mean the OP Link but an E-Mail news link.

The product page link works for me, but attempts to download fail as the server kicks me out of the checkout page back to the store. Has happened a dozen times in a row in the last 10 minutes. Server is too busy???

Hi Jlevans,

There's no issue that I can see from here. Other orders are going through fine. What browser and payment method are you using? Feel free to e-mail me at erikr@matrixgames.com if you need help.

Regards,

- Erik

I am having the same issue as Jlevans (being kicked out of the order 'enter address' page back into the store product list page) from the UK using IE8. I assume it is just server overload and will try again later.

That's very concerning, these are the first reports like this we've had. What payment method are you using? Have you tried a different browser? I will investigate this here as well.

Regards,

- Erik

Never get to a payment method choice. I've isolated the problem ti IE8/9 as I've successfully downloaded now using Firefox.

I've realised I don't have any funds in my paypal account and as I hardly ever use paypal I forgot my password so have had to reset my account. Is there any way I can purchase Legends immediately without having to wait 2-3 days for my paypal account to register?


Edit: I've figured out one solution would be to simply pay by debit card as a paypal guest

Bless my old T-Online Internet Explorer 6.0. What he can't manage (bigger than 2 Gig) needs to be done by Firefox including modern HTML formats. But he never fails me.

Needed to run five attempts to actually download the game from plimas server link in receipt. The download would hang about half through the download process. Completed successfully in the end.

I was kicked out after purchase. I went back to the product page and clicked on Order Status, then Went to the Plimus site and put in my order number. That allowed me to download the Legends file from there. I use Internet Explorer v.8.

Is the discount for the download version only, or does the same discount apply to the physical version?

All our prices are based on the download version, so the discount is applied to the download version and then the physical version is always $10 more than the download price. That means the physical price is still discounted, but because of the way it is calculated, it's not the same percentage as the download price.

Regards,

- Erik

I just fixed my IE8 issue where I was being kicked out while placing a download order by disabling 'Identity Safe' secure log-in from Nortons Internet Security. With that off it all went through OK. The expansion looks just great!

Is anyone else who experienced this issue using some kind of similar Internet Security?

AlPhi, have you purchased from our store before with this 'Identify Safe' on and if so did you ever have an issue in the past?
