Return of the Messari includes a new alien faction with a major role as the original civilization of Pandora returns to the planet. Steam keys for previous owners.
Matrix Games will issue keys for the Steam release to any copy of the November 2013 4X strategy regardless of where it was purchased, they announced.
"Return of the Messari features a brand new alien faction that will play a main role in the later stage of the game. This ancient civilization that disappeared from the Pandora planet ages ago, comes back to its birthplace to recover its property. Therefore not only the players will have to fight their way to survive on the hostile Pandora’s environment but also deal with another aggressive enemy who comes with powerful units like gigantic mechs and motherships."
"The Messari will target the stronger factions as a priority which will probably confuse the issue and change the balance of power on Pandora. As a result the players will have to take into account this new gameplay element to take advantage from this fearsome alien invasion."
Pandora: First Contact is available for pre-purchase onand will include the expansion this May 30th.
