Up to four humans can play together on the same team. Since the biggest maps allow for a total of 48 players, additional AI teammates can be added. The play style is what the developers are calling "simultaneous planning, sequential execution". Basically this means that you can set all your dials, design ships, set destinations for all your ships, plan building projects and queue up ships and such at any time. Execution of movement happens one after the other.
What if one day, humans woke up to find that they weren’t alone in the galaxy? They make their way into space and discover other alien civilizations with their own histories and motivations looking to make a name for themselves. Choose your race - Human, Drengin, Altarian, and so many more - and lead your civilization into a golden age in one of the largest 4X strategy games ever made!
Research new technology, design starships, and colonize new worlds as you face threats and conquer challenges from new and mysterious sources. Negotiate trade and treaties, wage wars, spy on your enemies, and promote outstanding citizens. And when you've finished that, play again as one of the many included alien civilizations each with its own history, technology tree, ship components, and more.
