Driven To Two

by on 26th Feb 2014

Thrust again into the galaxy. In the never-ending search for new frontiers, new life, great richess and the unknown - such is the drive behind our species and also that of the now revealed StarDrive 2.

StarDrive 2 is an exciting and evolutionary step forward for the StarDrive franchise. In this eagerly anticipated sequel, the core mechanics have evolved to incorporate a turn-based strategic layer, featuring spectacular realtime battles. As the galactic ruler of your race you will lead your people into a procedurally-generated galaxy, exploring and expanding your space empire to greatness. Exploit planets, navigate asteroid belts and overcome deep space dangers while handling interspecies relations to gain the upper hand. Conduct diplomacy and espionage, make alien friends that will deliver thriving trade treaties – or enemies that will seek to exterminate you at all costs. Research new technologies and design powerful warships to defend your claims. Discover the extensive lore of the StarDrive universe by encountering many dozens of anomalies, heroes, and galactic mysteries that will ensure no two games will ever play the same.

The key features according to the latest deep scan:

• Build a space empire turn by turn in an immersive, living galaxy filled with 9 alien races, pirate factions, galactic lore and mystery.
• Hire unique heroes to govern your worlds or to command your mighty fleets in battle.
• Populate the universe and colonize planets, moons, asteroid belts, gas giants, and more!
• Research hundreds of technologies, including technologies that are unique to your race. Find even more technologies through in-game events and galactic exploration.
• Build your own ships in the custom ship design mode and take them into real-time battles featuring stunning visuals and sound effects.
• Enter a Battle Arena mode for quick-fix battles against cunning AI opponents. In this mode, you will earn rewards as you fight through the challenges, allowing you to unlock new weapons, ship hulls, and ship modules to upgrade your ships and to purchase new ships to add to your fleet.
• Created with the Unity engine for simultaneous release on PC, Mac and Linux.
• Will include various Steam features such as Trading Cards, Achievements and Steam Workshop, allowing modders to create and share their own in-game heroes, events, Battle Arena campaigns, ship modules, weapons, sound effects, and more.

The developers at Zero Sum Games should have this new instalment warping in to our quadrant come September.

StarDrive 2's first DLC, Sector Zero is here.

(...) takes the base game of StarDrive 2 and overhauls it with massive changes to the structure of the galaxy. First and foremost, the galaxy is now divided into Hexagonal Sectors, providing new resources, terrain features, chokepoints, and reasons for you to commit genocide on the friendly plant people. New deep space construction mechanics allow you to fortify sectors with battlestations, mining outposts, science stations, and more. Sectors are jam-packed with new anomalies to explore, quests to unlock, and dangers to bravely run away from.
