Informational

“《帕克斯新星》是一款科幻题材的回合制4x游戏,游戏故事发生在太空之中。游戏的内容分为两部分,其地面部分的内容非常相似于文明系列之中的《文明:太空》一作,游玩体验基本一致。但与其不同的是,本作还拥有太空部分的内容,在地面的城市能发射太空飞船探索外太空,不仅能遭遇到各种新奇事件,还可以在新的可殖民星球之中发展自己的太空殖民地。但是,游戏有一个致命的缺点,过于缓慢的节奏严重影响了游戏体验。”

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great way for us to receive feedback from the community and incorporate it into the game. We want Pax Nova to be the greatest strategy game it can be and being able to get feedback from a variety of people at this stage is a huge help, especially for such a complex game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate Pax Nova will be in Early Access for about 3 to 6 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan on releasing regular content updates, until we reach v1.0. These updates will include new features and gameplay mechanics to play with, new quests, additional technologies and localization to multiple languages. The updates will additionally focus on game balancing, bug fixes and general gameplay improvements, as well as adding Steam achievements. We also plan on including community suggestions and ideas, so please feel free to leave your feedback on the Steam discussion board”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The whole game is fully playable from start to finish and should be fun despite the rough edges, lack of balance, possible bugs and missing content. For a list of all the features currently implemented in the game please refer to the "About This Game" section.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will release into Early Access at a discount. The price will rise at the 1.0 release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Getting feedback from the community is the reason why we are going through Early Access!
So we plan on paying very close attention to the forums and social media to implement that feedback in a timely manner. Whether it’s bug reports, ideas or general criticism; we love to get your feedback.”

Hello Pax Novians,
First of all, we would like to thank you for your overwhelming enthusiasm the past couple of days, which led to a very successful EA launch for Pax Nova. We are thrilled to embark on this journey with you and we are confident that with your constructive feedback on the Steam forum, Pax Nova will reach (and exceed) its potential.
We have listened to your feedback and we would hereby like to introduce you to the fixes of the first patch. The patch is out now and includes:

Changelog
  • Rebalanced rate at which new citizens are generated and city growth to be significantly faster, speeding up the overall pace of the game (Important note: Only applies to newly created games with this patch and upcoming versions)
  • Rebalanced some creatures to have weaker attack ratings
  • When units are on orbit or on top of a warp they gain the In Orbit and On Warp statuses respectively and can now be traversed through, preventing units from blocking warp points and colonizable planets

  • Rebalanced Transcendence/Science victory to require much more Research production
  • Refactored parts of the saving/loading algorithm to make these processes safe and for future proofing purposes

  • Added VSync option in the graphic settings
  • Added Controls & Shortcuts page to Codex

About This Game

Humanity has failed itself through pollution and war. After a century of political tension and countless armed conflicts, Earth is now on the verge of being uninhabitable. A communication from deep space gives us the chance to leave our dying planet and start over, by migrating to Eos, marking the beginning of the era of ‘Pax Nova’. But will it be enough to save humanity?

In this sci-fi turn-based 4X strategy game, you may choose one of several factions divided between three races, and establish yourself in Eos. Explore new worlds and new star systems filled with exciting secrets as well as terrible dangers. Build great cities and expand your influence through efficient diplomacy, or prepare for battle on land and in space when diplomacy fails or for when you’re just a warmonger.

Explore your world and beyond...

Planets are much more than just a collection of stats. Your civilization will soon want to know what’s outside your atmosphere and will look forward to discovering, colonizing or even invading new worlds. Each planet is procedurally generated with different biomes and various challenges, and is filled with numerous secrets, creatures, characters, factions and much more.

...including space itself

Space itself hides numerous secrets but many dangers as well. Pirates, space creatures and other beings will try to hinder or help your progression throughout Eos.

An epic space opera

Three different races, all invited there, provide a choice from a total of 15 factions. Each faction has their own play-style and challenges. Unveil the past of Eos and define its future! How you do it however is entirely up to you.

Dynamic diplomacy systems and political landscape

New diplomacy options can be unlocked depending on your traits, technology, specific events and more.

And much more

  • Discover Eos’s secrets and solve quests, build space bases and outposts
  • Unique victory conditions for each player
  • Unit and ship customization
  • Randomly generated tech tree (Coming soon during EA)
