Master of Orion Summary
While some might prefer the frantic pace of real-time strategy games where you hit macros like you're speed-typing, the slow, calm and calculated air of the turn-based strategy game call to those players who like to plan extensively and enjoy carefully crafted plots and tactics boiling over in slow-cooked tension. Mmmmmm.
The rebooted Master of Orion hit Steam in Early Access form about six months ago, updating the classic sci-fi 4X title with help from its original developers. Now it’s finally about to reach its 1.0 release bringing the game to a fresh, wider audience at a lower price tag later this month.
Wargaming.net has released the first of a series of developer diaries dealing with the Early Access build and launch of Master of Orion. The developer diary goes into some of the core gameplay decisions made by the developer, NGD Studios.
