Default Drox Operative 2 - Reaches Beta

May 26th, 2021, 10:15
After being in Early Access for close to a year, Drox Operative 2 has reached the beta phase and is scheduled to be released in Q3.

Anna, Texas, May 25, 2021 - Drox Operative 2 is now in Beta!

Drox Operative 2 is nearing the end of Early Access after 48 patches of improvements and new content. It is now in beta and should be fully released in the 3rd quarter of 2021!

In the meantime, you can still pick it up and have some input in Early Access at Steam and GOG.

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.

Eons ago the Drox crushed and enslaved 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!

For more information about Drox Operative 2 head over to the official site.

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
  • Essentially play an action RPG inside a universe of alien races playing a 4X game

I'd be all over this if it had some kind of meaningful narrative.

I played the total heck out of the first Drox game, that was back when I was a huge proponent of procedural games. I'm not certain if I'll be on board day one for this iteration, yet I will be monitoring feedback and checking to see what friends and folk here might think about it.

You are basically flying around, dealing with pirates, insurgents, and other nefarious individuals, from what I remember. I've not played the game in over eight years, I think I bought and played it near the end of 2012, so it's been quite a while and the style of the game isn't something that I gravitate to these days. While I was playing it, however, I do recall having a lot of fun with it.

it's an arpg , just kill stuff, try builds and collect gear. A "meaningful narrative" is a secondary aspect. It's like expecting plot twists in porns.
