Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Greywolf Entertainment announce the latest in Iceberg Interactive’s lineage of 4X strategy games with the sci-fi Civ-like ‘Pax Nova’. The game will enter Steam’s Early Access program in December of 2018. This is Greywolf’s sophomore outing in the 4X genre after last year’s Dawn of Andromeda, a pure space 4X game also published by Iceberg Interactive.
The trailer reveals Pax Nova’s dual-focus on both planetary and deep space exploration. Players build settlements and place troops on the surface of planets and explore the stars using fleets, managing both phases of exploration and warfare.
“After building Dawn of Andromeda around a very streamlined approach and learning a lot from that experience, we decided to work on a completely new 4X game with brand new ideas and a vastly different approach. Pax Nova is an epic space opera that seamlessly blends together planetary strategy with a space layer, which we believe sets it apart and hopefully one players will enjoy.”Greywolf’s Mike Domingues
About Pax Nova
Humanity has failed itself through pollution and war. After a century of political tension and countless armed conflicts, Earth is now on the verge of being uninhabitable. A communication from deep space gives us the chance to leave our dying planet and start over, by migrating to Eos, marking the beginning of the era of ‘Pax Nova’. But will it be enough to save humanity?
In this sci-fi turn-based 4X strategy game, you may choose one of several factions divided between three races, and establish yourself in Eos. Explore new worlds and new star systems filled with exciting secrets as well as terrible dangers. Build great cities and expand your influence through efficient diplomacy, or prepare for battle on land and in space when diplomacy fails, or for when you’re just a warmonger.
- Explore your world and beyond…
Planets are much more than just a collection of stats. Your civilization will soon want to know what’s outside your atmosphere and will look forward to discovering, colonizing or even invading new worlds.
