Master of Orion III Preview
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new preview of Master of Orion III has been posted at Game Revolution, taking a close look at the known facts about this anticipated space strategy title. MOO3 (as it's affectionately called), will sport many graphical and gameplay improvements over the past two games in the series. One of the largest changes is the inclusion of experience, a fifth 'X' in the genre of 4x games. The article goes into detail about what will be different about MOO3, though here's a clip that should reassure fans the game will not be radically changed:

That does not mean, however, that MoO III is abandoning its core identity. You will still start on a tiny planet in the midst of a vast galaxy (and I do mean vast; the galaxy generator is capable of creating a galaxy with 256 stars, each star capable of having eight planets and each planet capable of supporting five moons) and compete with other races in your attempt to develop a sprawling interstellar realm. You will still research technologies, design ships and build fleets to send against your neighbors. Your neighbors are still very likely to deserve it.
Master of Orion III is currently set for release early next year, with MacSoft publishing the Mac version. We'll be bringing you more info on the title as it nears completion.
