Do you want to settle on planets, colonising, terraforming, and peacefully convincing other civilizations to join your way of life, or will you play a nomadic race, travelling the galaxy on giant ships and sucking the energy from the stars?

The trailer is focused on showing off what makes a 4X a 4X. In this case, it’s ‘eXpand’, which you’ll need to do if you have any hope of winning. You can’t hang around on your home planet here.

You’ll need to balance your expansion with making your territory safe, too, securing trade routes and shuttling your populace between worlds. Expand too quickly and you could leave yourself open.

Have a watch of the trailer above.
