Astra Exodus is a new space grand strategy game with all elements you eXpect from a serious 4X.

Aliens, pirates, scavengers: the deep dark space is full of trouble. The human race has traveled for long across the galaxies, but it now needs to find its way back home, to good Old Earth.

Take command of all humans resources: study new techs, build new ships to travel, explore and colonize anything from small planets to entire galaxies. Solve huge space mysteries - but prepare to fight; is a dangerous place where pirates and hostile aliens lurk in the dark waiting for your next wrong move to hit you without mercy.

Explore the galaxy, found new colonies and try to forge strong alliances with alien races. Fight off pirates and slavers and fight real-time battles to repel invaders and conquer new worlds when all your diplomatic skills have failed.

The single-player narrative Campaign will send you up and down the four corners of the galaxy following the mysterious Legacy of the Exodus, with a series of linked missions. You can also choose the free sandbox mode and go full-alien, taking the lead of one of the other seven factions, from the winged Okli to red skinned reptiles of the Veloran Horde, each with unique traits and abilities, for endless 4x action.

A game developed from the ground up to modded. Players will be able to add or modify any faction, starship, troop, technology and everything else and boldly go where no one has been before.

Key Features:

  • Epic Story Campaign: Lead the Earth Legacy Task Force through 9 arduous missions, in their Campaign for discovering the lost heritage of Earth, and make decisions that alter the story and gameplay in significant ways. You can be rewarded with exclusive and diverse abilities only found in this mode.
  • Dynamic Sandbox Mode: Take charge of one out of 8 different main factions, or create your own in the Sandbox Mode, as you thrive to enslave, exterminate, seduce or right out beat all and any competition. Survive a host of events and menaces, that will surely challenge your empire and all others.
  • Battle in Space and on the Ground: Fight in space and on the ground, with real time tactical space battles, where positioning and heading matters as much as weaponry. And initiative based top down ground battles, with hosts of infantry, armour, strike craft and even mechs. Or just nuke them from orbit, that works just as well.
  • Explore captivating Galaxies: Colonize or conquer a vibrantly diverse galaxy of your choosing, full of wonderful stars, planets, asteroid belts, etc, all inspired by true astronomical phenomena. Maneuver your ships around black holes and supernovas, to either use or avoid their effects, in your conquests.
  • Semi-random Research Grid: Research over 300 technologies, in an exclusive and randomized tech grid, which forces you to choose wisely what you research and guarantees that no two games will be the same. React to events in the galaxy by researching about them and obtaining unique advantages over your enemies.
  • Lead through amazing Heroes: Encounter and recruit amazing galactic heroes, to lead your fleets, govern your colonies or even spy on your enemies! Make havok without firing a single blast, by conducting Sabotage and Revolt, among other operations; deep behind enemy lines.
  • Design your own Starships: Design you own starships, by deciding not only what weapons they carry and in which configuration, but also their Core and Support systems. Overwhelm your opponent with hosts of agile Frigates, swarms of Strike Craft or just with the immense firepower of a single huge Titan.
  • Open files for modding: Tinker, change and customize the game to your heart's content. Adding new or modifying existing starships, factions, troops, technologies, etc to the game. Maybe reenacting then, some of your favourite scifi tv shows and movies moments, right in the game.

Astra Exodus will be available on PC later this year.
