Une troisième extension est disponible depuis peu pour ce jeu de stratégie économique développé par Soren Johnson (Civ IV), jeu qui était sorti de la phase Early Access au printemps dernier, et dont nous avions, à tort, oublié de parler depuis.
Intitulé The Patron and The Patriot, ce DLC ajoute deux CEO supplémentaires, des modes de jeu ou encore du contenu narratif. Car sans aucun doute être PDG d’une compagnie sur Mars, c’est aussi en soi vivre une sorte d’aventure, et pas uniquement jongler avec des chiffres et des tableaux de prix.
Offworld Trading Company: The Patron and the Patriot released
Next-Generation real-time strategy game gets bigger and better
Plymouth, MI. – October 27, 2016 – Stardock released The Patron and the Patriot (P&P) DLC for Offworld Trading Company today.
Developed by Mohawk Games, P&P adds colony classes, new campaign content, new characters, and six interactive stories that convey life on a newly colonized Mars.
Designer Bob Thomas worked closely with Soren Johnson to bring greater immersion to the popular economic real-time strategy game. Features include:
Colony Class – Each colony now specializes in one area of the economy, altering local market conditions in a variety of ways.
Campaign Length – The campaign tournament can now last for 4, 7, or 10 games. Each length comes with its own balance tweaks and gameplay subtleties.
Wholesale Orders game mode – Not all colonies want you to build habitats and work modules for them. Now, some want your company to supply a variety of wholesale goods instead.
Two New Characters – New CEOs with new gameplay perks.
Story-Driven Campaigns – Six interactive short stories about life on Mars, available to experience through playing the new characters on each different length of campaign.
New Staffing Perks and Achievements
“Offworld Trading Company puts the player in the position of CEO of a company on Mars,” said Soren Johnson, CEO of Mohawk Games. “Your opponents are other companies and your weapons are resources and market forces. With The Patron and the Patriot, we wanted to further develop the immersion of the game’s setting on Mars.”
To that end, P&P’s included short-stories flesh out what life on Mars means for colonists, workers, and corporate titans alike. These interactive stories are driven by the player’s choices in the game. This interactivity ties into the 17 new colony classes which impact local market conditions for players to deal with.
Combined with the already compelling game mechanics of Offworld Trading Company, The Patron and the Patriot DLC fleshes out the setting and brings a new level of replayability to one of the most innovative strategy games released in recent years.
The Patron and the Patriot is only $4.99. For more information on Offworld Trading Company, visit www.offworldgame.com.
