Get tons of new detail about the new expansion to the award-winning space strategy game

Matrix Games, Slitherine and Code Force are pleased to release an extended gameplay and features preview video for their highly anticipated 4x space expansion, Distant Worlds – Legends. The video details the long list of new features and improvements coming with Legends in addition to showing off some of the epic battles with varied and powerful ships that players can wage across the galaxy.

Check out the new video on YouTube.

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.

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

I don't see how DW+RoTS+Legends can be remembered as anything less than the difinitive sci-fi 4x experience, should this pan out. Honestly.

At 8:28 check out how the ship at the bottom left shoots phasers in 5 different directions simultaneously, awesome!

I really liked the potential of the fleet action radius. In addition to pretty much the rest displayed

It looks nice. Better performance with all those fighters will be a big deal.

Will anything from a ROTS game (saves, settings, etc.) carry over into Legends?

Anyone else noticed how new soudtrack from video feels just like Homeworld Cataclysm main theme? Well, at least at the very begining.

Yep, the new musics sounded quite nice! Though I'll probably still be using my custom soundtrack, these new tracks sound like worthy addition to it.
