“Distant Worlds: Universe is my favourite space strategy game. Not my favourite space strategy game released this week and not my favourite space strategy game released this year. It’s the definitive version of the best space strategy game I’ve ever played and I want to share the excitement with everyone”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Distant Worlds: Universe is perhaps the finest 4x Space game in a generation, certainly since Galactic Civilizations 2. It's a challenging and complex game packed with features that allows you to choose just how you want to play it, while accommodating a wide variety of play-styles and strategies.”
9/10 – Strategy Informer

“Its enormous, complex and - above all - fun.”
4.5/5 – Digitally Downloaded


The Universe is Yours!
Distant Worlds: Universe is the newest chapter of this critically acclaimed sci-fi series, adding incredible new features and an exciting new storyline.  Universe is also the ultimate collector’s edition, the first time all previous Distant Worlds releases have been included in one package, along with an updated manual and greatly expanded modding support.  

Distant Worlds is a vast, pausable real-time 4X space strategy game. Experience the full depth and detail of turn-based strategy, but with the simplicity and ease of real-time, and on the scale of a massively-multiplayer online game.  

Vast galaxies are made to order: up to 1400 star systems, with up to 50,000 planets, moons and asteroids. Galaxies are so deep, fun and immersive that you won’t want to finish the game.  Build, expand and improve your empire while playing through one of the storylines, with victory conditions or in an open-ended sandbox mode.

Each galaxy is packed with life and activity. Encounter other empires, independent alien colonies, traders, pirates and space monsters. Explore star systems, asteroid fields, gas clouds, supernovae, galactic storms and black holes. Discover evidence of civilizations long since past, uncovering secrets about the galaxy's troubled history...

Best of all, you can play the game your way: enjoy a quick, intense game in a crowded sector of space or take your time in an epic game spread across a vast galaxy! 

Distant Worlds: Universe contains all of the following:


  • Truly Epic-Scale Galaxies: play in galaxies with up to 1400 star systems and 50,000 planets, moons and asteroids. Vast nebula clouds spiral out from the galactic core, shaping the distribution of star clusters in the galaxy
  • Private Enterprise: the private citizens of your empire automatically take care of mundane tasks like mining resources, transporting cargo, migration between colonies, tourism and much more. This frees you from micro-management and instead allows you to focus on a macro-scale
  • Diplomacy: interact with other empires, discussing treaties, making trade offers or just giving them a piece of your mind. Talk to pirate factions, tapping into their underground information, or paying them to do your dirty work for you...
  • Choose your Playstyle: Start with a single planet and sub-light ships, or as an established space-faring civilization with warp drives.  Play as a Standard empire or as a Pirate faction, with many adjustable victory conditions and gameplay choices depending on your actions.
  • Intelligent Automation: automate the various tasks in your empire, so that you can focus on the areas that you enjoy most. Or have your advisors make suggestions in different areas like colonization, defence or diplomacy – helping you learn the best tactics and strategies
  • Explore: explore the vast galaxy, discovering valuable resources, potential colonies for your empire and making contact with other empires. Uncover secrets that lift the veil on the galaxy’s mysterious past...
  • Colonize: send out colony ships to found new worlds for your empire. Develop your new colonies by keeping them well-supplied with a steady stream of valuable resources
  • Defend: patrol the outlying areas of your empire to protect from raiding pirates or dangerous space monsters. Construct defensive bases at your colonies. Build up your fleets to defend against enemy empires. Recruit troops to invade enemy colonies and conquer the galaxy!
  • Espionage: covertly seek out information about other empires, or even disrupt their progress with acts of sabotage
  • Research: develop new technologies for use in building your own unique ships and star bases
  • Characters:  including Leaders, Admirals, Generals, Ambassadors, Governors, Agents and Scientists, all with defined skills and traits and the opportunity to advance and improve
  • Design and Build: A very flexible system allows you to design and build the ships and star bases in your empire. Construct mighty military ships ranging from escorts to carriers and dreadnoughts at your space ports, or build mining stations, research installations or secret monitoring facilities at remote locations throughout the galaxy
  • Built-in Game Editor: fine-tune your own galaxy, adding or removing star systems, planets, asteroid fields, ships, star bases, space monsters or anything else. Modify the attributes of any empire in your game
  • Extensive Help: exhaustive, built-in, context-sensitive help is always only a single key-press away. Press F1 at any time for a detailed explanation of the current game screen, your currently selected item, etc
  • Tutorials: in-game tutorials familiarize you with all of the game elements and tools

New to Universe!

  • The entire Distant Worlds series in one package! Universe includes the Original Distant Worlds, Return of the Shakturi, Legends, Shadows and the new Universe expansion!
  • Comprehensive Modding and Customization Support: Allows adding/removing/changing most items: resources (including new colony-manufactured resources), ship components, planetary facilities and wonders, fighter designs, alien races and race families, diplomatic dialog, empire policy, custom characters, ship and base design templates, governments, plagues, research tech trees and more
    • Can customize most of the images used in the game: ships and bases, fighters, alien races, planetary facilities and wonders, characters, troops, components, resources, ancient ruins, planets, stars, asteroids, animated in-game effects and more
    • Use a previously saved and editor-customized game as a map for a new game (instead of generating a new galaxy)
    • Powerful new event system accessible from a considerably-upgraded Game Editor. Set up your own storyline in a custom map with triggered events and custom victory conditions
    • Add story triggers on specific in-game objects or events, executing one or more actions on other in-game objects (either immediately or delayed)
    • Can replace most of the user interface icons and sound effects
    • Add your own custom help files to the in-game Galactopedia
    • Switch between different customization sets with a couple of mouse clicks from the main game menu
    • Comprehensive 99-page Modding Guide that outlines how to make Mods and explains all of the settings in detail
  • A new official storyline built using the new modding capabilities, covering the first war between the Freedom Alliance and the Shaktur Axis, in which you have access to the tech required to build your own planet destroyers, establish the Ancient Guardians and research and deploy the Xaraktor virus.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

Distant Worlds: Universe is a game that falls under the RT4X genre (e.g. Sins of a Solar Empire), which is developed by Code Force and published by Slitherine Ltd., most notably known for their catalog of strategy games ranging from 4X to Real Time Strategy (RTS).

PLOT (No Spoilers):
Distant Worlds: Universe has a VAST and EXTENSIVE micromanagement system that basically allows the player to form their own dream space-faring civilization. If you're the type of player who loves war, the game has an extensive tech tree that follows that path. If you're not really into conflict then you can automate most of the war process and focus more on trade and commerce which is also very extensive. To make a long story short, the game can accommodate every play style that different 4X and strategy players usually look for such as War, Trade, Diplomacy, Space Piracy, Benevolent / Tyrannical Empire style etc.

+ Extensive and deep empire management system that allows you to focus on certain aspects that interest the player. (War, Trade, Diplomacy, Space Piracy, Benevolent / Tyrannical Empire etc.)
+ Helpful in-game encyclopedia that details most of the game's mechanics.
+ Customizable civilizations and races, including personalized government types and policies.
+ Design and personalize your own ships, space stations and facilities. (Want to build a Death Star? Sure why not? The game is not going to stop you.)
+ Moddable
+ Unlimited replayability due to the game's extensive nature.
+ Large scale space battles and planet side (ground) combat, something that Sins of a Solar Empire should have had.
+ Good sound design and in-game music.

- Graphics is sub-par. I'll be honest: the 2D sprites in this game are not that pretty to look at.
- User Interface (UI) is barebone in design and sometimes utilizes Windows sound effects and prompts. Seriously, it could use some work.
- Very steep learning curve
- Some sprites overlap each other making them a bit hard to click. Good thing that the game allows you to select the units through a pop-up list of the stacked units.
- Performance may degrade when your empire gets way too large but it still ultimately depends on your PC's CPU power. This means that the System Requirements in the Store page may not truly reflect what you really need if you're planning on playing this on the largest galaxy possible.

EXCELLENT RT4X GAME but only if:

1. You’re a fan of 4X strategy games
2. You love micromanagement
3. Have a lot of free time
4. Have a lot of patience

This game makes all other 4X games look simple in comparison due to its vast scale.

One question that faced many people concerning this game was the hefty price tag of $60 (or your regional equivalent), a price normally seen with large Triple-A title games. In this case however, Distant Worlds: Universe contains the base game plus all past expansions including the final one, so treat this as a 'Complete Edition'.

Buy this game at full price if you fulfill the requirements I listed on the CONCLUSION part because otherwise, wait for a sale if you just want to try the game out.

When reading reviews for this game you'll generally find two camps. There are people who find DW:U incredibly deep and engaging, and there are those who find it incredibly obtuse and frustrating. The problem is they're both right. The game does feature a wealth of features, and you will almost certainly never experience them.

Even for a player like me who is used to impenetrable strategy games like Europa Universalis this was difficult to play. Income see-saws drunkenly from crippling deficit to fabulous surplus and back again depending on what's happening this exact second. Land combat units are jam packed into impossibly tiny UI bars. AI factions have reams of vague, undefined character traits. The encyclopedia technically gives information on everything but is so poorly organized and unsearchable as to verge on useless.

With time, practice, and a lot of time spent researching on independent websites you can have fun with this game. But for sixty dollars you shouldn't have to, and quite frankly, don't. Find yourself one of the many excellent 4Xs in the store and pass over this ambitious but ultimately flawed gem.

VERY Complex, with a steep learning curve but great depth. Each facet of the game can almost be its own mini-game, taking hours to unravel. If you like figuring out game systems, and getting your interstellar empire to hum like a fine-tuned machine, this game is a must-buy. I had more fun playing it than any gave I've played since the original Galactic Civilizations.

That said, it's dense. The AI works very well in some regards, but is pretty dense in other regards. I found ship design to be maddening, as it's got great features but I never could figure out how to get my ships to upgrade without consistently being converted to some other very generic design (I want Plasma Torpedoes, not Missiles!!).

It's a beautiful and amazing puzzle for those who love to solve puzzles. For those who don't, run screaming in the other direction!

I haven't dedication enough to withstand the game's interface. I suspect a lot of fun hides behind that bad design.

4x/grand strategy in space, done right. Amazing value for money.

+ The most epic universe-feel you'll get in this genre.
+ Huge customization options.
+ Very capable automation *options* that let you determine the level of minutia you'd like to wade through.
+ A non-government sector/economy that itself is a joy to watch develop - really hope competitors are taking notes on this feature in particular.
* While the visuals are a bit clunky, they can be improved significantly with a few popular mods.
- Extremely steep learning curve.
