4X sci-fi strategy game Pax Nova is getting a full launch in early 2020. The game originally launched via Early Access back in May this year and was initially planned for a full launch in late 2019.
In Pax Nova, you control one of several factions across three different races. Humanity has failed thanks to pollution and war, but a message from deep space could mean a new beginning for the doomed species. Migrating to Eos, humanity begins the “Pax Nova” era and attempts to establish a base for itself in this new corner of space. You’ll need to engage in diplomacy, political intrigue, and potentially all-out war with other factions. Check out the trailer for Pax Nova:
As you explore systems in Pax Nova, you’ll come across several planets, each of which is “more than just a collection of stats”, according to developer Grey Wolf Entertainment. Every planet is procedurally generated with biomes, challenges, and problems to overcome, as well as numerous creatures and different faction presences. Your goal is to build cities, expand your presence in Eos, and deal with hostile threats that come your way.
Overall, Pax Nova gives you a choice between fifteen different factions. Grey Wolf Entertainment says each of these factions “has [its] own play-style and challenges”. How you play is entirely up to you; there’s equal provision for being a bloodthirsty warlord, a patient diplomat, or a pacifist farmer. As you progress through Pax Nova‘s tech tree, you’ll also unlock different diplomacy and technological options, making each playthrough unique. Each player also has unique victory conditions, and customizable ships and units mean no two civilizations will ever look the same.
Pax Nova leaves Early Access in early 2020. We don’t have a specific release window for the game yet, so we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, you can still grab the Early Access version of the game on Steam.
