Dawn of Andromeda is Now Available

Dawn of Andromeda has been released upon the galaxy!

DoA is an RTS/4X hybrid; meaning it has elements of empire management games, but it also has faster, real time combat elements too. There are number of games that use similar mechanics to this, but the 4X genre, although niche, still has a huge amount of flexibility. In other words, there’s plenty of room for diversity, and plenty of opportunity for Dawn of Andromeda to offer 4X gamer’s something fresh and unique.

Personally, I think the past year has been incredible for 4X games, of all descriptions, and it’s hard enough just deciding between playing Stellaris, MoO(CtS) and Stars in Shadow. However, I’m open to the idea of a faster paced 4X, and if DoA gets the multiplayer right, it could become my new favourite time sink.
