Drox Operative Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The Adrenaline Vault has posted a new preview of Soldak Entertainment's upcoming starship action RPG, Drox Operative. The game will put players in the role of an elite starship captain and will feature warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic and evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer.

The galaxy of Drox Operative isnít just a bunch of experience points and loot to harvest, but a living, breathing thing that will kill you if youíre not careful. Soldak has experimented with dynamic worlds before, and all that experience is at work in Drox. Ignore that quest to kill the giant space monster for too long and he will gather a horde of killer spores to murder your whole planet. Meanwhile, instead of trying to simply advance your character, youíre trying to survive in a dynamic universe filled with alliances and empires. The goal isnít just to win, but to make sure youíre on the winning side before it ends.

Picture from Drox Operative PC previewBut thatís all been done in Soldakís previous games. What Drox does differently is translate the traditional fantasy genre into ship-based space combat. Yes, itís the same system with stats, gear, loot drops and quests, but now itís in the form of ships whizzing around and out-maneuvering each other. You can play entirely with the mouse, or using WASD to control your ship and your mouse to aim your guns. Toss in projectile weapons and mines and you have something that could almost pass for a souped-up 2D Freelancer.
