StarDrive

Format:
StarDrive sets a new benchmark for the ‘4X Space Strategy’ genre on PC

Please note:

Prices in GAME Stores may differ.

Release Date: TBD
StarDrive sets a new benchmark for the ‘4X Space Strategy’ genre. Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you must venture forth into the galaxy, conquer new worlds, build new colonies and defend your very existence against those who would take what is yours. How you play is your decision. Use diplomacy or brute force. Trade, spy and research you way to galactic domination. Make friends, or create mortal enemies…

StarDrive takes a modular approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ships where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship. In combat, if your portside armour is taking a beating, then rotate around and show them the starboard side! Hide behind a friendly capital ship’s shields; warp into and out of the fray, launch fighters, lay mines, and so much more.

“The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine”

Economy
Colonise or conquer new planets to expand your interstellar empire. Specialise your colonies and design trade routes to stimulate growth. StarDrive follows a classic 4x model in that Food, Production, Research, and Money are the primary resources to gather. Find special resources by exploring planets and anomalies to unlock bonuses, or to unleash terror...

Ship Design
  • Design every ship in your empire, or choose from stock configurations
  • Create platforms and space stations to deploy in deep space
  • Carefully plan your ship’s power grid, fuel capacity, ammunition storage, thrust, mass, and more
  • Organise your ships into fleets and give your ships custom fleet behaviours in an easy to use fleet editor
  • Set your weapon facings on turrets, or line up your fixed guns on spinal or broadside mounts

StarDrive Features
  • Real time gameplay with a seamless zoom from a grand strategic view to close-up action view
  • Choose from 8 beautifully rendered alien races or design your own to lead into the stars; interact, negotiate and forge allegiances on your way to victory
  • Expand your empire and colonise all kinds of planets, terraform and populate them and build them into specialised centres of trade or industry
  • Explore the rich universe that comes alive with random events, remnant elements, hidden treasures, deep space terrors and late-game threats
  • Create custom fleet formations and set rules of engagement in the easy-to-use fleet editor
  • Research and unlock an array of new technologies to improve your military and industrial technology
  • Control your ships with classic real time strategy commands or jump into the fray by taking direct ‘arcade’ control of any ship in your empire
  • Create your unique ship designs with the modular ship design system and determine your own fate in battle
  • Deploy ground troops from orbit to defeat the enemies’ last planetary defences in ground combat
