Two questions

Post by 39battalion »

Legends looks to be very interesting and I am on the brink of hitting the credit card again (sigh).

But first two questions:

1. Does it add any new features or patches to the previous two games in the series ?

2. Are all the games in the series linked in some way ? For instance can you play a linked campaign across the three games ?

Thx

1. Look on the product page for the improvements. Off hand there are GUI improvements, ship direction indicators, potential colony highlight

Characters are added.

2. They are the base and two expansions, no each campaign is for each version

Not sure what you mean here, but to try and clarify things:  Legends is an expansion that requires the two previous versions of Distant Worlds to work.  Once you install Legends you play that, so it doesn't patch the original as such, it adds to it and replaces it.
2. Are all the games in the series linked in some way ? For instance can you play a linked campaign across the three games ?

It is one story.  The story from the original still exists, the first expansion Return of the Shakturi added to this story (with a really big event) and the third expansion Legends, does not expand any further upon the storyline but features its own unrelated random events.  You can choose to play any combination or none of the storyline setups.
