WG Labs is honored to announce that Master of Orion is set for global launch and cosmic domination on August 25, 2016.

MoO August

The legendary game of interstellar conquest is reborn and ready for both new gamers and hard-core players of the original series. After a successful Early Access period, where player feedback was integral in shaping the game, WG Labs releases this anticipated 4X title (eXplore, eXpand, eXterminate, eXploit), prompting all to answer the call and “Conquer the Stars”.

“The journey for Master of Orion’s reboot has been an amazing one, and now we’ve approached our destination,” said Jacob Beucler, Publishing Product Director, Master of Orion. “Along for the ride was the Master of Orion community, sharing their thoughts and guiding us toward an amazing Master of Orion experience for the new age!”

As an additional bonus, all who purchase Master of Orion will receive a free copy of the 1997 RTS classic, Total Annihilation. To get this classic title, created by Chris Taylor and Ron Gilbert, just link the game to a new (or existing) Wargaming account: click “Options” in the Master of Orion Main Menu and follow the prompts from the “Wargaming.net Account” button. With just a few clicks, the epic RTS classic is ready to play.

The Master of Orion series made its debut in the mid-1990s, defining the 4X video game genre and setting the standard for all future strategy games. Now, WG Labs’ Master of Orion will deliver the best elements of the original series while bringing a new level of gameplay experience for the modern gamer. Battle the ten classic races of aliens from the original series, voiced by legendary talents from sci-fi and video games such as Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and Alan Tudyk (Firefly). Engage in real-time tactical battles fully realized with AAA graphics. Explore numerous paths to victory as you work your way across the galaxy to conquer Orion.

As of August 25, the Master of Orion standard edition will be available for £23.00 delivering all of the tactics and strategy of the original series. The Master of Orion Collector’s Edition is also available for £39,99 featuring a detailed digital art book, the three original Master of Orion games, a full orchestral soundtrack by the original Master of Orion composer, retro pixel ships skins, and an exclusive new race for Collector’s Edition holders: the Terran Khanate.

About Master of Orion

Master of Orion is a modern rebirth of the critically acclaimed sci-fi strategy game. The forerunner of the influential “4X” style, Master of Orion builds on the iconic explores, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate, gameplay that the original game pioneered. This reimagined title stays true to its legacy, delivering on the promise of deep strategy, hard fought battles, diplomacy, and exploration—all with a healthy dash of humor.

Players can expect a fresh perspective on the original 10 races, each offering different styles of play. Within thousands of ever-changing galaxies, hundreds of unique technologies, and dozens of ships waiting to be tested, no two games will ever be the same.
