Space Strategy Fans Rejoice, StarDrive Is Out Now On PC
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
Iceberg Interactive have just released their latest title “StarDrive” in European retail stores. StarDrive sets a new benchmark for the ‘4X Space Strategy’ genre, starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you must venture forth into the galaxy, conquer new worlds, build new colonies and defend your very existence against those who would take what is yours. How you play is your decision. Use diplomacy or brute force. Trade, spy and research your way to galactic domination. Make friends, or create mortal enemies…
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “With this retail launch we are adding more and more channels where the game can be bought and the box looks great. We are still updating StarDrive frequently, are also preparing free DLC for this summer for the game and are committed to keep improving and extending the game for a long time to come.”
StarDrive takes a modular approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ships where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship… In combat, if your portside armour is taking a beating, then rotate around and show them the starboard side! Hide behind a friendly capital ship’s shields; warp into and out of the fray, launch fighters, lay mines, and so much more.
