'StarDrive' Gets Release Date, Coming Soon - Screens

StarDrive is a 4X Action-Strategy game where the goal is to build a space empire. Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you forge out into the galaxy, exploring new worlds, building new colonies, and discovering the StarDrive universe.

Grand in scope, yet easy to pick up and fun to play, StarDrive hearkens back to the golden age of 4x gaming.  Player-designed races, espionage, diplomacy, custom ship designs, planetary invasions, and  many more classic 4x features will provide players with endless replayability in a massive living universe. Challenge your friends online, or join them in co-operatively creating an empire to test against human opponents.  

The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine. StarDrive takes a module-based approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ship designs where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship in combat. Organize your ships into fleets with a simple fleet editor, allowing custom formations and rules of engagement. Jump directly into the combat action at any time by commandeering one of your vessels and piloting it yourself with arcade-like control, or just sit back and let your commanders control the battle.

The StarDrive Beta is currently available through Steam at a 17% discount ($24.99), while the full version will be sold at a 10% discount during its launch-week.
