We’ve had the pleasure of some fantastic sci-fi 4x games this year with Stellaris receiving a new DLC and the launch of Endless Space 2 on Steam’s early access platform. Now we have another to follow in the form of Grey Wolf Entertainment and Iceberg Interactive’s new sci-fi 4x, Dawn of Andromeda.

Performance and Graphics
Dawn of Andromeda looks and runs sublime, especially for an incomplete title. Clear inspiration has been taken from games like Endless Space 2, which is certainly no bad thing. The art style, planets, anomalies and races look top notch, the entire game is very pleasing visual experience.

The game is currently in Early Access with a full launch looking to be around Q2 2017, although be prepared for delays depending on player feedback.
Dawn of Andromeda has the potential to be another great addition to the sci-fi 4X genre. It does however need to find a way to stand out from the crowd. With games like Stellaris still in their prime, Andromeda must implement something unique to provide a draw for fans of the genre.
