Grey Wolf Entertainment and Iceberg Interactive have announced the release date for Pax Nova.
The upcoming sci-fi 4X strategy game will launch for Windows PC via Steam Early Access on May 9th. The announcement came as part of a new dev Q&A video, which you can find above.
Pax Nova will allow you to decide the fate of your chosen faction in a conflict between rival nations spread across three races.
The game will feature 4X gameplay on both a planetary and intergalactic scale, allowing you to build up colonies on individual planets and wage war on the ground and in the stars.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
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. Each planet is procedurally generated with different biomes and various challenges, and is filled with numerous secrets, creatures, characters, factions and much more.
…including space itself
Space itself hides numerous secrets but many dangers as well. Pirates, space creatures and other beings will try to hinder or help your progression throughout Eos.
An epic space opera
Three different races, all invited there, provide a choice from a total of 15 factions. Each faction has their own play-style and challenges. Unveil the past of Eos and define its future! How you do it however is entirely up to you.
