Check out the new features in this highly anticipated space strategy expansion with this new video

Matrix Games and Code Force (www.codeforce.co.nz) are proud to release a promo video detailing the new features and improvements coming in their highly anticipated expansion to the best-selling 4x space strategy game Distant Worlds, entitled Distant Worlds – Return of the Shakturi. The new video, narrated by none other than Distant Worlds’ Lead Designer and Programmer Elliot Gibbs, shows off some of the new interface improvements, a massive new tech tree, and a new behemoth Shakturi warship among a few other things.

The video is available for download or on YouTube. Be sure to head to our YouTube Channel to check out other Matrix Games videos as well!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “This new video does a great job of showing off some of the highlights coming with the Return of the Shakturi expansion. Beyond what you see here, there are even more exciting improvements and plenty of new content on the way with Distant Worlds – Return of the Shakturi!”

An ancient evil is returning to the vast universe of Distant Worlds! The Return of the Shakturi is the highly anticipated expansion to the critically acclaimed 4X space strategy game Distant Worlds. In addition to a long list of new features and improvements, Return of the Shakturi includes two new and unique alien races complete with riveting events that expand upon the original Distant Worlds and move the timeline of the universe forward into its next chapter with exciting new endgame options. A completely new and vastly expanded research system with comprehensive new tech trees awaits, with new tech and options for avid ship designers such as fighters, bombers, missiles, Ion weapons, planetary facilities, regional capitols, and much more!

Return of the Shakturi also comes packed with interface improvements like an Empire Navigation Tool to provide quick access to everything in your empire, Action Buttons for one-click access to common tasks, an Enemy Targets list showing all known enemy threats, Build Orders to mass-produce groups of new ships in one simple step, and much more! All this coupled with new Empire Policies to fine tune the auto-management of your empire, new galaxy shapes, and extended modding support make Return of the Shakturi an essential add-on to the vast, living galaxy of Distant Worlds!

Please note: Distant Worlds – Return of the Shakturi REQUIRES ownership of the original full Distant Worlds game and is expected to release before Christmas, 2010.

Get more information on Distant Worlds – Return of the Shakturi from its official product page and be sure to check out the new video!

Oooo... Shiny! Can't wait!

One thing still worries me though: I hope the Shakturi are balanced well. Nothing is more annoying than fighting a desperate fight when you know you don't even have a possibility of winning.

Anyway, looking great.

Oh man....I loved it!!!  Very good job guys!  I really think this expansion brings a lot of what I want to the table.  I loved when that planet blew up btw.

Great stuff!  The accent on the voiceover in these kind of vids is usually American, it was slightly amusing with the NZ accent too 

Did anyone else sense a major disturbance in the force at the end of that video?

I think that might be Elliot. I love the kiwi accent. Ever seen the movie 'Bad Taste'? Peter Jackson's first movie I think it was.

Out before Christmas too.

I think this will confirm DW as pack leader (which it may have been anyway)
Now if only Stardock would make EWOM worth playing I would have it all. 4x sci and fantasy covered.
10 patches - you'd have thoght they would have it almost done by now - well you'd have thought it - but you'd be wrong.

It was like a million voices cried out all at once, then just as suddenly silenced.

Oh SW, that will certainly make me happy.

Shakturi sure aren't getting any symphaty by crashing some planets. 
Just imagine them disintegrating you precious Loros fruit harvesting planet. Not good!
