World of Tanks publisher Wargaming purchased the Master of Orion franchise a while ago during Atari’s bankruptcy auction, and today they announced the reboot of the classic 4X series.
The game, developed by NGD Studios, including a few veterans of the franchise, will include 13 playable races, and will span galaxies ranging from twenty to a hundred star systems with unique stars, giving us plenty room to build our space empires.
So far, the only races confirmed are the Humans, the Bulrathi, the Sakkra, the Gnolam, the Meklar and the Alkari. On the other hand, the platforms haven’t peen explicitly mentioned. PC is provably a given, but the trailer’s description mentions “the latest multi-platform technology and graphical systems,” so there could be more.
Below you can see the announcement trailer and a few screenshots.
