Today, GreyWolf Entertainment and Iceberg Interactive announced that their real-time space 4X game Dawn of Andromeda will release on May 4th, 2017. Thought Dawn of Andromeda, unlike many contemporaries, is real-time, it’s also pausable (think Baldur’s Gate for you RPG fans), allowing players to take a deep breath and plot their next course of action. The May 4th launch is on Steam, though the game’s currently available in early access as well. Iceberg and GreyWolf have been working on the game non-stop since the EA period, and it sure seems like they’ve taken the community’s word to heart. We’ll have our full review in the coming weeks.
What is Dawn of Andromeda?
Dawn of Andromeda is a real-time 4x space game, allowing players to take the reins of one of many civilizations and guide it through the myriad of dangers hiding in the galaxy. They will be able to build out their empire, colonize new planets, interact with other factions and characters, research new technologies and build fleets so powerful their enemies will tremble at its mere sight.
With endless galaxies to choose from, there are brand-new expansive features to look out for at launch:
- Eras – Unique scenarios, each with a pre-designed galaxy and background stories which you can play as one of the existing factions, each with their own victory conditions, traits, challenges and ongoing conflicts and relationships
- New animated cutscenes for each major race
- New Victory/End screens with statistics and extra information
- New (random) events
- More balanced gameplay mechanics
- Many bug fixes
