Stardock and Mohawk Games have announced the release date for their non-combative, economy-focused real-time-strategy game, Offworld Trading Company.

The Soren Johnson-designed (the lead designer from Civilization IV) economic strategy game is set to launch on April 28th, for PC and Mac. The game is set in the future where humans have begun colonizing Mars, with the player acting as an investor vying to control the market, and drive out competition.

“Offworld Trading Company is a new direction for real-time strategy, where money is both your deadliest weapon and and your toughest defense,” designer Soren Johnson said in a press release. “After all of the lucrative resource mining on the asteroid belt is claimed by mega-corporations, savvy business hopefuls turn to Mars to stake their claim to the red planet and build an economic engine capable of out-producing the competition.”

“All of the feedback we’ve received from fans during our development process has been great,” Johnson said. “We used it to refine and polish this game. We’re really excited to share it with everyone.”

Offworld Trading Company has been available via Early Access on Steam or through Stardock’s own store.

    So many RTSs though.

    I’d say finally, but none of them want to be Fantasy based.

    Your comment reminds me that I want to go back and play Battle for Middle-earth again.

    I actually got this game as a gift recently it is quite a lot of fun. I love the idea that you are trying to literally buy out your competition. It does seem a bit simple and not so challenging but then again I only played the tutorial levels and haven’t tried it on a higher difficulties. Also haven’t played it yet with other human players so I’m sure that will be a bigger challenge.
