Haven't you heard?  Distant Worlds is the new 4X space strategy title from Matrix Games.  There's a lot space to cover in the game: 1400 star systems containing up to 50,000 planets, moons and asteroids.  Players will command vast empires and engage in research, diplomacy, ship designs, espionage and more.

Matrix Games released some art that shows off some of the unique alien races you'll encounter Distant Worlds.  I like the variety and would buy some of them if they made action figures.

Staten Island, NY, April 1st, 2010 – Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and CodeForce (www.codeforce.co.nz) are proud to release a pack of concept art screenshots showcasing the detailed and unique alien races found in the exciting new 4X space strategy game, Distant Worlds!

With Distant Worlds, gamers can experience a “living galaxy” with endless options and replayability, command vast empires that span many star systems and engage in research, diplomacy, ship design, espionage, trade, combat and more!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Distant Worlds is a unique, rich, and customizable space strategy game like no other! This batch of alien art helps illustrate how detailed Distant Worlds is both visually and in terms of its gameplay.”

Distant Worlds is a vast, pausable real-time, 4X space strategy game. You can run the game as slow or as fast as you like, with intelligent advisors and many different settings for warnings and auto-pause triggers to help you manage your empire at your own pace. Experience the full depth and detail of large turn-based strategy games, but with the simplicity and ease of real-time, and on the scale of a massively-multiplayer online game.

Vast galaxies are made to order: up to 1400 star systems, with up to 50,000 planets, moons and asteroids. Galaxies are so deep, fun and immersive that you won’t want to finish the game... Build, expand and improve your empire endlessly. The galaxy is packed with life and activity. Encounter other empires, independent alien colonies, traders, pirates and space monsters. Explore star systems, asteroid fields, gas clouds, supernovae, galactic storms and black holes. Discover evidence of civilizations long since past, uncovering secrets about the galaxy's troubled history...

Best of all, you can play the game your way: enjoy a quick, intense game in a crowded galaxy or take your time in an epic game spread across a vast galaxy!
