Wargaming.net diffuse une nouvelle vidéo pour évoquer le début de la phase Early Access de Master of Orion, qui a donc commencé depuis le 26 février dernier. C’est l’occasion de voir brièvement l’envers du décor en écoutant pendant cinq bonnes minutes divers commentaires des développeurs sur l’IA, la dimension tactique des batailles ou encore des considérations générale sur la qualité du gameplay à laquelle le studio WG Labs veut arriver. Le tout étant donc bien sûr ponctué de courts extraits du jeu et présenté ainsi, en effet le résultat semble très alléchant.

Pour plus d’informations sur Master of Orion, dont la date de sortie n’est toujours pas connue, voyez le site masteroforion.eu/fr/ ou cette fiche sur Steam. Au passage notez aussi qu’un wiki officiel a récemment ouvert ses portes chez Gamepedia. Et pour les collectionneurs, vous trouverez aussi ci-dessous une récente bande-annonce dédiée à l’édition collector du jeu.

About Master of Orion

Master of Orion is a modern rebirth of the critically acclaimed sci-fi strategy game. The forerunner of the influential “4X” style, Master of Orion builds on the iconic eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate gameplay that the original game pioneered. This reimagined title stays true to its legacy, delivering on the promise of deep strategy, hard fought battles, diplomacy, and exploration—all with a healthy dash of humor.

Players can expect a fresh perspective on the original 10 races, each offering different styles of play. Within thousands of ever-changing galaxies, hundreds of unique technologies, and dozens of ships waiting to be tested, no two games will ever be the same.
