What's the best way to get news about DW2?


There is no news and hasn't been any. Just wait like the rest of us.




jesuswhywhy -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (6/13/2019 10:20:55 AM)

Preying every day for DW2 [&o]




larrybush -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (6/13/2019 12:06:09 PM)

Yep, still lurking, waiting...




OJsDad -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (6/15/2019 1:00:19 AM)

As of now, DW2 is all bluster and vaporware. If this forum had ads on it, then it would be a big money maker for Matrix. Good thing Stellaris is a great game.

Well thanks for your informed comment. Very knowledgeable person you must be.
Be sure to share more information with this forum when you can......and yes, Stellaris is a good game.




Retreat1970 -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (6/15/2019 5:50:09 PM)

So what does that make your post then? Such an informed comment.

My post would be: "Such an informed reply".

Hi everyone,

The game is coming together, but there is always a lot more to do. We are still working daily on development, art, design and data together with our artists and supertesters and the trials and tribulations of life occasionally knock us for a loop, but forward progress this year has been truly excellent. I have learned not to give estimates, but I am happy with the team we have and the progress we are making. We have been staying close to the latest milestone schedule we set for ourselves earlier this year and I expect wider testing will begin in the coming months. When we have more complete art in the game and we've made it through the first wave of testing, I expect we'll have a lot more to share with you all.

Regards,

- Erik



Has this milestone been met yet? I respectfully ask...




martok -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/1/2019 8:15:32 PM)

Anyone see this announcement yet?

http://slitherine.com/news/2880/Conquer.the.galaxy!.Astra.Exodus.has.been.announced


Looks similar to DW in a lot of ways. Is this the sequel, only under a different name?




USSAmerica -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/1/2019 8:31:06 PM)

Hmmm.... that does look quite similar to DW. Would Matrix/Slitherine compete against themselves with that game and DW2?




Demonius -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/1/2019 9:01:22 PM)

Different developer, totally different Art style, more Focus on Story driven SP - different game, also most likely means DW2 wont come this year.

Developers sometime change names, and the art style isn't "totally different" at all. There's actually a good deal of similarity between the two.


That being said, yes, I do agree it's not Distant Worlds 2. Astra Exodus is turn-based (I hadn't noticed that until now), and I don't see the DW series deviating from the real-time 4x formula.

I've taken that as a given for some time now. A 2020 release date (or later) has been obvious since Matrix/Slitherine began looking for 3D artists to add to the DW2 project.





balto -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/3/2019 2:57:06 AM)

Astra Exodus, that looks like a complete dung pile. Are you kidding me.




balto -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/3/2019 2:58:33 AM)

Age of Wonder: Planetfall.., now that will be the game to get if you want some Sci Fi stuff. Not DW caliber, but it could be a thing.




ashandresash -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/4/2019 8:40:04 PM)

Astra Exodus doesn't seem up to where Distant Worlds was. Looking forward to new information about DW2 asap.




Ranbir -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/6/2019 10:07:56 AM)

I'm liking the top down combat. I'm always a fan of top down space games.

Just get the font size right this time, please!




Vyshka -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (7/15/2019 1:33:37 AM)

Yes, it wouldn't be the first time they have come out with products that possibly compete with each other. For example, Grigsby's War Between the States and Forge of Freedom came out fairly close to each other.

Looks like a sequel to 'Stars in Shadow' to me.

You should try DWU while you wait for DW2.
DWU is so much better than Stellaris.




LordMM -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (8/8/2019 8:14:19 AM)

Any update ? anything...
Atleast a message saying they are working on it.
The Silence is a bit troubling, hoping they did not end up in any trouble.

Well, they've already said a number of times that they're working on it, and they were certainly hiring people to work on it.




Erik Rutins -> RE: Distant Worlds 2 News? (8/20/2019 4:02:36 AM)

We are very much working on it, never fear.

Is there any indication whatsoever of when we might hear some formal news, even a little development diary update would go a long way? [&o]

If there were Early Access or Crowd Funding options, I'd be in day one, without question.
