Default Drox Operative 2 - Early Access

June 1st, 2020, 21:51
Drox Operative 2 has entered Early Access on Steam.

Anna, Texas, June 1, 2020 - Drox Operative 2 is now in Early Access on Steam!

Gamers who buy Drox Operative 2 Early Access will receive full access to the latest alpha build, a reduced price of only $14.99 (10% off first week), the opportunity to give Soldak feedback which can influence the game, and of course, the final version when it becomes available.

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!

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

Drox Operative had the same felling. His games are an acquired taste.

Inertia in these games is realistic, but needs getting used to.
Of what I read this is more Drox Operative 2.0 than Drox Operative 2. So if you liked the first one…

yeah that happens in do1 as well. If you hated Do1 for some reasons you will hate do2. The game is in Alpha right now and it already added new stuff from do1 (weapons, planet mechanics, new races and diplomacy options etc…) more stuff will be added and fixed during Alpha and beta. It could grow to be a great game.
