Er du blandt de som også gamede i 90’erne, vil du uden tvivl huske Microproses tur-baserede 4X rum-strategi-spil, Master of Orion. Spillet er i dag blevet genfødt via anstrengelserne fra Wargaming.net og den nye udgave har ikke glemt originalens rødder.
Endnu en af Ataris gamle titler genoplivet
Wargaming.net købte i 2013 rettighederne til Master of Orion, da Atari var tvunget til at sælge ud. Du har siden sat WG Labs og NGD Studios på opgaven og resultatet af deres arbejde kan du selv se nærmere på i dag. Vi har her inkluderet pressemeddelse, friske billeder samt traileren som også er blevet sluppet løs i dag.
WG Labs and NGD Studios are proud to announce the release of Master of Orion. The innovative reimagining of one of the most beloved PC strategy titles of all time takes off today at 19:00 CET. The originator of classic 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXterminate, eXploit) gameplay, Master of Orion introduced gamers to an experience where choice was the key to success…or failure. Diplomacy, exploration and combat across a vast galaxy of unique races and worlds ensured that every playthrough was unique, providing seemingly endless replay value.
Staying true to these roots, WG Labs and NGD Studios’ reimagining of Master of Orion also adds a universe’s worth of new content and improvements, including new visuals, full-voice over from a star-studded cast including Mark Hamill, Alan Tudyk and Michael Dorn, a new race, real-time tactical battles and more. To ensure the most complete experience, NGD Studios also solicited player feedback during the game’s Early Access period, where their thoughts on every single aspect of the game was open to consideration, with many of the community’s suggestions being incorporated into the game.
“Master of Orion had a profound influence on my career,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. “Being able to bring this classic back to life is an honor. It was a true inspiration and a very rewarding experience. With the help of our community, who were with us every step of the way, WG Labs and NGD Studios reimagined an iconic experience with new content and sharp visuals.”
“Master of Orion has been a unique project for everyone at NGD Studios,” said Andrés Chilkowski, CEO of NGD Studios. “We made sure that the heart of what made Master of Orion a unique 4X experience remains, while revamping the game with high-quality graphics, immersive gameplay and a talented voice cast. We’re excited to bring Master of Orion to a new generation of gamers and passionate fans.”
