‘Galactic Civilizations III’ and ‘Offworld Trading Company’ to be released as boxed retail editions
Kalypso Media is thrilled to announce that it will be continuing its long standing relationship with Stardock by bringing the critically acclaimed 4X strategy sandbox PC title Galactic Civilizations III to all territories (excluding North America) this August. In addition, Kalypso will also be distributing the upcoming economic real-time strategy game Offworld Trading Company, currently in development by Mohawk Games, in early 2016.
“We are pleased to be able to extend our distribution deal with Stardock and to bring two more exciting titles to the retail market.” Commented Simon Hellwig, Global Managing Director, Kalypso Media Group. He continued, “Both Galactic Civilizations III and Offworld Trading Company are hugely ambitious strategy titles and continue to push the genre to new levels of excellence and we can’t wait to get them into the hands the fans”.
‘It’s great to once again be working with Kalypso Media to bring gamers the localised retail versions of our new top titles Galactic Civilization III and Offworld Trading Company.’ Commented Brian Clair, Stardock Director of Publishing.
Galactic Civilizations III is the largest and most diverse strategy sandbox to date. Players have dozens of tools at their disposal from diplomatic treaties to resource exchanges, United Planets resolutions to the hundreds of research directions their scientists can pursue, and an effectively infinite number of ways to design and deploy starfleets. Every area of the game – planetary development, starbase construction, inter-faction negotiations, ideology, and much more – presents players with choices that shape their galaxy. The retail version will include an exclusive ship pack, soundtrack and printed handbook.
Offworld Trading Company is a market-based real-time strategy game where corporations struggle for dominance of the astronomical profits that lie in the Martian market. Offworld Trading Company’s quick and intensely competitive matches pit up to 8 players against each other on randomly generated maps. Players must quickly determine the best path toward building a self-sufficient colony that can extract the abundant Martian resources while maintaining profitability – and surviving the “talents” of shady black-market characters who are all too happy to raid any player’s shipments or smuggle a paralyzing EMP device into any colony for the right price.
