For Immediate Release

Arlington, VT, May 23, 2014.

After months of beta-testing, Distant Worlds: Universe is now on the launch pad. This sci-fi series praised as “ a worthy successor to Master of Orion” (Eurogamer.dk), “ a true space empire game” (Gamers Hall), “ a small revolution in 4X strategy game” (PC4War), is bound to push the boundaries of the universe once more.  Distant Worlds: Universe releases today on the Matrix Games Online Store as well as on Steam.

Distant Worlds Universe is a new release as well as the long-awaited stand-alone package that combines all previous Distant Worlds releases in a single kit and expands on it with plenty of balance changes, engine improvements and brand new modding tools that will allow the players to set up their ultimate customized sci-fi experience! This collector’s edition also introduces a new storyline setting covering the ancient galaxy and the first war between the Freedom Alliance and the Shaktur Axis in which players will get access to powerful technologies and new weapons, including the ability to build planet destroyers.

In order to thank the Distant Worlds community which has been supporting the series for years now, we are pleased to announce that players will be able to get a $10 discount for every Distant Worlds game/expansion they own.  All Universe owners are also eligible to receive a Steam Key.  For a limited period of time, there is also a launch discount of $10 off the regular price on both stores in order to celebrate the release and the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Distant Worlds.

Get more information on Distant Worlds Universe from its epic trailer and its official product page.
