Posted: Tuesday, January 12, 2010 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Explore the universe across the endless stars and make it yours!

Matrix Games and Code Force (www.codeforce.co.nz) are thrilled to announce that they have reached a publishing agreement for Distant Worlds, a vast real-time 4X space strategy game sporting massive galaxies and limitless possibilities!

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Distant Worlds combines all the great features of a classic 4X space strategy game with plenty of exciting new elements. Both long time fans of space 4X games and the newcomers should definitely give Distant Worlds a look!”

 

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!

 

Features include:

  • Truly Epic-Scale Galaxies: Play in galaxies with up to 1400 star systems and 50,000 planets, moons and asteroids.  
  • Private Enterprise: The private citizens of your empire automatically take care of mundane tasks like mining, transporting, migration, etc. 
  • Intelligent Automation: Automate the various tasks in your empire, so that you can focus on the areas that you enjoy most.  
  • Explore: Explore the vast galaxy, discovering valuable resources, potential colonies for your empire and making contact with other empires.
  • Colonize: Send out colony ships to found new worlds for your empire.  
  • Defend: Patrol the outlying areas of your empire, construct defensive bases, and build up your fleets to protect from raiding pirates or space monsters.  
  • Diplomacy: Interact with other empires, discussing treaties, making trade offers or just giving them a piece of your mind.
  • Espionage: Covertly seek out information about other empires, or even disrupt their progress with acts of sabotage.
  • Research: Develop new technologies for use in building your own unique ships and star bases.
  • Build: Design and build the ships and star bases in your empire. Construct military behemoths at your space ports. Build mining stations, research installations and more.  
  • Built-in Game Editor: Fine-tune your own galaxy, adding or removing star systems, planets, asteroid fields, ships or anything else.
