Back to News Listing Pandora: First Contact Releases

Posted: Thursday, November 14, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

Earth, Year 2013 – The dawn of a new day. A day where the Sci-Fi strategy game will be reinvented. Where the frontiers of 4X will be pushed as never before. Today is the day of Pandora: First Contact!

It’s been a long journey, but thanks to the effort of developer Proxy Studios (www.proxy-studios.com) and the keen help of more than 3.000 Beta Testers, the world of Pandora today discloses its secrets.

Being hailed as the spiritual successor to Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Pandora: First Contact creates a completely new world of its own, with alien flora and fauna, massive armies, wondrous technologies, advanced weapons and much more, all rendered in a stunning 3D.

Explore a rich world harboring a variety of eco-regions, from the frozen wastes of the poles, to the vast deserts and lush tropical forests at the equator. Live in harmony with nature or use it to further your cause. Construct farms, mines, forts, and other improvements to increase the productivity of your colonies or to fortify positions…and this is just the beginning!

Pandora allows you to customize your experience through easily moddable XML data and well-known image and audio formats, adding enormous replay value. And let’s not forget the game allows up to 6 players to play head to head, co-op or in teams to decide the fate of Pandora.

The release comes along with an exclusive collection of wallpapers, to customize your desktop!  Download it HERE.

“We are extremely happy to be releasing Pandora”, says Iain McNeil development director of Slitherine, “Proxy Studios have been a great partner and their commitment to detail and quality has ensured the game has a great future. Pandora provides an intense, immersive and engaging experience for sci-fi strategy gamers and our audience worldwide. After Panzer Corps, this is another strategy gaming milestone and we are proud to be part of it”.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager gets release date.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity. President Kennedy won his historic gamble by landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth before the end of the decade. A whole new era of space conquests was opened…
