Pandora: Eclipse of Nashira Announced!

Post by Surtur » Tue Jul 29, 2014 3:03 pm

Praised for the quality of its AI, its unique and lively world, and its neat mechanics and streamlined UI, Pandora: First Contact had lot to offer to 4X fans at its release, late 2013. Thanks to patches and a free expansion, the game has become even deeper and more entertaining. Now Proxy-Studios wants to transform Pandora into a darker and secret battlefield; a place where espionage and diplomacy can prevail!

With Eclipse of Nashira, new dangers and opportunities enter the world of Pandora. A new faction shows its face, talking of peace and friendship while their spies operate behind enemy lines. Nothing is what it seems anymore, as agents conduct covert warfare of espionage and sabotage, inciting revolts and stealing technologies. At the same time, another alien species native to the planet has appeared, lurking in the shadows. In order to overcome this new alien menace, the different factions start to expand beyond the planet's landmass to generate more resources, opening up a new frontier.

As the World of Pandora is about to plummet into chaos by warfare, espionage and hostile alien species, it is up to you to lead your people and become the ruler of this promised world.

Enjoy the sun while it shines, because this long eclipse is scheduled for later this year!

An announcement of what sounds like an interesting expansion pack is welcome - but what does it mean for future development of the base game? I'd like to remind that 'long-term support' was promised... Things have been awfully quiet since the Messari DLC was released.

"Praised for the quality of its AI" - blatant self-promoting commercialism that does not serve to promote confidence or trust whatsoever. Not the best way to start off this announcement. :roll:

Should they rather have written: "Praised for it's AI, that in some aspects actually is not that bad and can be modded to be almost acceptable." ? :D

Yep, kind of sketchy. If they patch up the current game I might consider it.....otherwise no dice.

Please make the return of the aliens optional. I have been playing the beta game whenever I don't want to deal with them. I am happy that people who want to always play with the aliens have what they want. I just wish that people like me could also like the game and have what we want. It would not be hard to make it an option. With the latest changes it would finally be a replacement for Alpha Centauri--but never with the aliens arriving so early in the game (or ever).

All I ask you to give us is Freedom of Choice!
