Voici une récente bande-annonce présentant le prochain StarDrive 2, dont la sortie est désormais prévue sur PC, Mac et Linux, y compris sur Steam, le 9 avril prochain. A noter que ce 4X en plus de classiquement permettre de se tailler un empire galactique, offre d’une part des batailles spatiales en temps réel et d’autre part un module tactique pour gérer des combats terrestres, mais cette fois en tour par tour.
