A year ago Distant Worlds: Universe released on our store and on Steam. Since then, press and players, old and new of the series, have been playing and praising this game as the best 4X space game ever made.
PCGamesN wrote it is "and exceedingly complex, infinitely rewarding space strategy game", while
GameWatcher wrote "Distant Worlds: Universe is the finest 4X space game in a generation".
RockPaperShotgun called it "one of the most unique, enormous and engrossing strategy games ever made".

A major new update is available for the critically acclaimed 4x space strategy game Distant Worlds: Universe, bringing the game to version 188.8.131.52 with many improvements, changes and bug fixes!
For example, major improvements to the private sector freighter system, AI improvements, fixes to achievements that were not being retained, and bases will now launch fighters at attackers even when they have no other weapons!
But the list is very long, so be sure to check the whole changelog here
“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

|Graphics||3 It's noticably lacking in graphics. Windows norm with a lot of the menus. Ship animations are nearly non-existant.|
|Gameplay||8 Many different strategies will have you coming back to try something different.|
|Immersion||7 The level of strategy and the feel of lose, even from a couple of ships really puts eveything into prespective. The amount of options you have over your empire is staggering|
|Value||6 With the lack of current day level of graphics and the $25 price tag are the only reason why this isn't higher.|
6 Considerably higher if graphics are not a concern for you!
