Master of Orion 3 Preview and Screenshots
6:00 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

IGN PC has written and posted a preview of the upcoming galactic empire simulation, Master of Orion III. This is just the latest addition to the popular Master of Orion series, which was originally created 10 years ago. The preview offers plenty of information regarding Quicksilver's upcoming release, including how combat is shaping, new tools, and how things are doing in the graphics and art department.

MOO3 will also feature different sized star systems, for both the casual and hard core gamer:

While a lot of the gameplay centers around charts, graphs, and planet management, much of the gameplay will take place directly on the 3D space map. Maps can be small (around 15-18 stars with around 10 planets each), massive (256 stars), or anywhere in between. This assures that you can play a one to two hour game, or go for the gusto and start a campaign that may take you weeks to finish.
More information can be found in the full preview. In related news, GameSpot has just posted 8 brand new, high quality screenshots of MOO3 is action. A link to these pictures is provided at the bottom of this article.
