WG Labs, part of Wargaming.net, today announced that Master of Orion will hit early-access on the 26th February with the purchase of the Collector’s Edition.
Master of Orion seems to be getting a pretty beefy budget, as the 4X strategy game will host a talented voice cast comprised by legendary actors such as Mark Hamill, Nolan North and Troy Baker.
“The original Master of Orion captured the hearts of gamers with solid gameplay and a rich, diverse universe where every choice makes a difference,” stated Chris Keeling, Director of Product Vision at WG Labs. “Having some of the most iconic science fiction, horror and video game voice talent lending their skills to the game only helps us realize this amazing universe in even more exciting ways.”
Here's the full list of cast members: Mark Hamill (Star Wars Saga), Alan Tudyk (Firefly), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Kat Cressida (Haunted Mansion), John de Lancie (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), John Kassir (Tales from the Crypt), Dwight Schultz (Babylon 5), Nolan North (Uncharted series) and Troy Baker (The Last of Us).
You'll only get access to the early-access by ordering the Collector's Edition of Master of Orion on February 26 via Steam and GOG.com, retailing at €45.99. Included in this version are the first three legendary Master of Orion titles, retro pixel ship skins, a beautifully detailed digital art book, modernized orchestral soundtrack by the original composer of the Master of Orion series and an exclusive new race only available in the Collector’s Edition: the Terran Khanate.
We'll bring you our first impressions of Master of Orion within the next few weeks, so stay tuned.
