Stardock may have gone through most of their life offering crazy Windows add-ons like Rocket Dock and Windows Blinds; but their game division is still a major focus for them. It's about to release Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade.
Last week saw the regular Europa Universalis IV dev diary touch up the details of the upcoming 'Hungary Update'. There's no solid release date in mind just yet, but let's recap on its efforts.
Not a day goes by that Paradox Interactive have nothing to show of their tightening grip on the industry. Hearts of Iron IV is getting another new expansion later this year.
The world is one vast, open playground. It is in real-life, and that fact only becomes more drastically true as we look at today's gaming culture. Constantly spoiled by these open spaces with developers constantly trying to build one larger than the last, it's time to look back at what makes these sandbox environments so gripping. And four of the leading development teams will be doing just that at PDXCON 2017 next month.
From releasing its third major update just a few weeks ago to heading into its full release, Endless Space 2 has finally reached maturity. It's heading out of Early Access in just a month's time.
When it comes to strategy titles - or just PC titles as a whole, these days - there's always work to be done post release. A 1.0 version typically indicates a product shipped to the consumer in a fully fleshed-out and finished state. But when it comes to a strategy game, it's typically only the beginning.
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion was released all the way back in 2012 by Stardock Entertainment, and today it's celebrating the 5th anniversary by releasing Update v1.9 with a price drop of over 75% on Steam, taking it from £29.99 to £7.50.
With around 9 days to go before Europa Univeralis IV gets expanded upon with the Mandate of Heaven expansion pack, there's a bunch of free goods arriving with the patch that isn't tied to those picking up the expansion at launch.
Still pressing on with Early Access, Endless Space 2 is to receive its third major update on March 23 - coinciding with another space-based drama.
It's still fairly early in the morning, but nothing gets you up quite like a deep, thumping soundtrack and a mysteriously moving figure. If you want both in your life, check out the newest Phoenix Point teaser trailer down below.
