Default Drox Operative 2 - Demo

October 15th, 2021, 11:36
Soldak Entertainment contacted us to announce they had a demo for Drox Operative 2.

Anna, Texas, October 14, 2021 - Soldak Entertainment today announced the availability of the Drox Operative 2 demo. Drox Operative 2 is a starship action RPG with warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic, evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer for Windows and Linux.

The demo for Drox Operative 2 is only around 810MB, so there's no reason not to give it a try. Go download the demo now from:

Eons ago the Drox crushed and enslaved most of the ancient races and ruled the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were trained to accomplish the impossible at whatever cost. Whether employing stealth or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox ruled the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their Operatives were a threat, they attempted to assassinate all of them. They failed. The following Galactic Civil War was so devastating that the Drox are now extinct. The Drox Operative guild, now fully independent, survived.

Newer races emerged and thrived in the power void …for a while. Then the ancients returned. The wars were devastating, but with the Drox Operatives on their side, the ancients were beaten back and a truce was established.

Since the devastation, a 4th wave of sentient races are emerging in the galaxy. Unlike previous waves, there are thousands in this one and no one knows anything about them. In the new space race, the ancient, mature, and young races are all scouting, colonizing, and expanding, trying to take over the galaxy through diplomacy, technology, war, and any other means necessary.

As a Drox Operative it's NOT your job to manage an empire, you are after all the captain of a single starship. It IS your job to pick the winning side and maybe even help them conquer the galaxy if you're being nice, more importantly though is to rake in as many credits as possible, well that and build the deadliest ship in the known universe. Who will you back as an Operative? The ancient, mature, or young races? The pacifist or militaristic races? The xenophile or xenophobe races? The races that value freedom or the races that use slave labor? The strong or the weak? Your actions and inactions will impact trillions of alien lives!

Drox Operative 2 is scheduled to be released October 20th 2021. For more information about Drox Operative 2 head over to http://www.soldak.com/Drox-Operative-2/Overview.html

Features:
  • Explore a dynamic and evolving galaxy
  • Explore a unique sector of the galaxy in every game, with different "monsters", ship components, quests, and even races
  • Fight in the galactic war between the various alien races
  • Battle hundreds of different enemy starships
  • Build the coolest and deadliest starship in the galaxy
  • Outfit your ship with thousands of components and crew
  • Adventure with your friends with co-op multiplayer

This is not my kind of game, but I really applaud the guy for continuing his passion. I had some fun with Depths of Peril back when it came out and I'm happy for him that he's able to continue this pursuit of games.

bought this the day EA started. Soldak deserves some support, Steve released lot of good patches and i've watched this game evolving into something similar to drox1 yet improved and different in a good way (would be long to name all the new feature and reworks).
Must buy if you are into soldak or arpg in general.

Agree I tried to like his games as well but never could. You usually feel lost with no idea what to do next. It's safe to say if you enjoy hardcore games you will love them.

I played the heck out of the first Drox some years ago, yet I don't think it would be something I'd gravitate to these days. I do admire the gumption to feed what has to be a niche audience though, kudos go to the bold!

I really liked Drox Operative but I didn't get into any of the other games by this developer. I picked up DO2 in EA but haven't had a chance to play it yet. How does it compare to the original Drox Operative?

it mainly addressed the only flaw of drox operative : the command stat.
In do1 best way to build was dumping your point in command stat no matters what, now you have cool passive trees and command is separate from regular stats on lvl up.
Other than that it has massive improvements like playable minor races with fuzzy skilltrees trees combination, improved races descriptuion and interactions, new kind of weapons (you can ram ships), new fighters (pet) mechanics etc…
It's really hard to list em all.
