New DLC "Blue Chip Ventures" is Now Available


Take on new single-player challenges designed by a Top-Tier Offworld Trading Company Player

Blue Chip Ventures' difficult new scenarios will force you to play at your very best to win.

Predict markets, effectively sabotage your opponents, and break monopolies in Blue Chip Ventures! This series of new single-player scenarios is designed by one of Offworld Trading Company’s top competitors - will your business come out on top, or will you be filing for bankruptcy?

Over a dozen scenarios will require you to play at your very best in order to beat difficult objectives. Specific "Challenge" scenarios will require nearly flawless execution of everything you've learned and will make even the most veteran of players work hard for their victories.

Learn valuable management skills and become a better executive by undertaking a unique scenario from one of these different categories:

  • Supply and Demand: They want it? You’ve got it. Focus on monopolizing resources and learn the right times to shift your focus to keep yourself ahead of your competition.
  • Play Well With Others: Can’t we all just get along? Focus on how best to handle your opponents - and also how to work well on a team with your allies to seal your victory.
  • Long-Term Planning: You’re in it for the long haul! Deal with debt strategies and turn around a losing game through careful planning.
  • Challenge: Playtime is over! These scenarios will force you to take all of the concepts you’ve learned and execute them flawlessly in order to win.

Reviews

“Offworld Trading Company is a work of genius.”
5/5 – Quarter to Three

“This isn’t an RTS with the combat removed - it’s Wall Street on a new frontier. It kept me engaged because every choice is part of an ongoing battle.”
88/100 – PC Gamer

“The core mechanic – the market that acts as a malleable foundation on which every other system is built – is close to perfect.”

About This Game


From the lead designer of Civilization IV comes a new kind of strategy game: Offworld Trading Company, an economic strategy game.

Mars has been colonized and has invited you to lend a hand to make sure the new colony has a shot at success. But you're not the only one that's been invited, other business rivals are here as well and they have no qualms about playing dirty to gain the choicest territories on the Martian surface and driving their competitors out of business.

Venture to Mars to Earn Your Fortune

With space travel becoming a reality and the easy-to-reach resources on Earth dwindling, hopeful people seeking their fortune are rushing to the next great frontier: Mars. Rekindle humanity’s adventurous spirit by leaving Earth behind and make a new name for yourself as a titan of industry on the red planet.

Discover the Origin of the Major Martian Businesses

Determine the fate of the Martian colonization effort in the dynamic single-player campaign mode. Multiple types of CEOs, each with unique traits and abilities, deliver many hours of discovery into their motivations and how they intend to dominate the future of Mars.

Experience New Adventure in Multiplayer

Turn your friends into frenemies! With a robust and exciting multiplayer mode that can support up to eight players, no two games of Offworld Trading Company are the same! The market fluctuates depending on which of the four starting corporations you and your opponents choose and what resources you accumulate. Strategy is key, and tenuous alliances between rivals are easily broken when the opportunity arises.

Control the Market before your Competition Controls You

In Offworld Trading Company, market forces are your weapons, not guns or bombs. The real-time player driven market is your sword and your shield here. In order to win, you will need to make tough choices on what resources to acquire, what goods to build and sell, how to interact with the planet's thriving underworld, and what stocks to acquire and when. With over a dozen different resources available and a constantly changing market economy, no two paths of victory are alike -- each game holds a different “key” to dominating your competition.

Enjoy a Rich Soundtrack from a Grammy Award Winning Composer

Transport yourself to Mars and immerse yourself in the battle for big business with an incredible soundtrack from composer Christopher Tin (Baba Yetu, Civilization IV). This retro-futuristic score mixes orchestra instrumentals, piano, and synthesizers while utilizing unique pitch-dives and other electronic treatments. All of these unique elements gives Offworld a truly otherworldly tone. Check out the full interview here: http://www.mohawkgames.com/2016/04/26/christopher-tin-goes-offworld/
