Revenge of Antares Update Now Available For Master of Orion

December 1, 2016 —Master of Orion’s stellar “Revenge of Antares” update has arrived and the galaxy will never be the same. This update gives players access to an iconic, non-playable race and even more content. Ready for purchase is the “Revenge of Antares Race Pack” DLC, bringing three well known and playable races to the already formidable galaxy.

Included in the “Revenge of Antares” update is a non-playable race, the militarized and despotic Antarans. This tyrannical race also brings a new victory condition. Additionally, in the “Revenge of Antares” update, players gain the ability to recruit galactic leaders and encounter independent civilizations as they deepen their experience in Master of Orion.

Alongside this free update comes the “Revenge of Antares Race Pack”, available for purchase. This DLC introduces a trio of familiar and playable alien races: the Trilarians, the Gnolam, and the Elerians—daunting aliens that will bring new dimensions to the battle for Orion. The Elerians, a fierce race of galactic isolationists, make uncompromising foes. The Gnolam are a wealth-driven society, which translates to them being an economically beneficial ally or a financial danger. Finally, the Trilarians are an aquatic race who, despite their commitment to peace, will fight valiantly against any threat.

Master of Orion’ “Revenge of Antares” game update is available today, free of charge.

The “Revenge of Antares Race Pack” is purchasable today for $9.99 via Steam and GoG.com

Wargaming Labs and NGD Studios Release Epic Expansion, Introducing New Alien Races and more

November 18, 2016 — The battle to conquer Orion is set to become even more challenging. On December 1, Master of Orion’s anticipated “Revenge of Antares” DLC will become available, giving access to independent civilizations, a new victory condition and more. The expansion also introduces three new playable races to the massive galaxy. Arriving in the DLC expansions are the Trilarians, Gnolam, and Elerians — formidable aliens that will open up new paths to victory as commanders strive for dominance of the galaxy.

“We’re excited to introduce new content for players of Master of Orion,” said Jacob Beucler, Publishing Product Director for Master of Orion. “They will find themselves in a new environment, filled with new challengers, adventures and new enemies to face off with or forge an alliance with. This content will add new dimensions to the game’s already robust lore.”

Three of the newly available races (Trilarian, Gnolam and Elerian) can be purchased in a single bundle. With the addition of these playable races, the possibilities and strategy multiplies as players forge their galactic destiny in even more unique ways.

Additionally, as a response to the dedicated Master of Orion player community, a free expansion will also be offered to all players. This expansion deepens the gameplay by allowing them the ability to recruit new leaders to their side, battle the fourth new, non-playable race; the Antarans and interact with independent civilizations.

So, just who are these new alien races and what roles do they play in Master of Orion? The aquatic Trilarian are a peaceful race that has abandoned the concept of war. However, when a true threat presents itself, their resolute honor compels them to fiercely fight for their objective.

The Gnolams are known as the most skilled traders in the galaxy, basking in the decadence that their wealth and luck brings them. This charmed race is the constant benefactor of good fortune, making them beneficial allies or cunning enemies.

The elegant yet xenophobic race the Elerians, present an interesting and exclusive aspect to the game. They will trade and communicate with other races, yet reject any potential negative alien influence on the Elerian culture. This resistance to all outside cultures makes them uncompromising foes.

The Antarans are a mysterious race genetically engineered by ancient and unknown masters. In time, they have become deeply war driven, bent on a fervent path of galactic expansion. Heavily militarized and despotic, the Antarans move through the galaxy bending all they encounter to their will.

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 explores, 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.
