- Automate the various tasks in your empire, so that you can focus on the areas that you enjoy most.
- Explore the vast galaxy, discovering valuable resources, potential colonies for your empire and making contact with other empires.
- Defend the outlying areas of your empire to protect it from raiding pirates or dangerous space monsters.
- Develop new technologies for building your own unique ships and star bases.

Distant Worlds 2 is a vast, pausable real-time 4X space strategy game: 
Experience the full depth and detail of a turn-based strategy, but with the simplicity and ease of real-time, and with the scale of a massively-multiplayer online game.

This new version just look awesome. Erik commented on it on Twitch, and oh my. This is a complete rebuild of the code base with additions that are just great.

There are some design ideas which are also very clever, like gating some technologies to having enough bonuses from special research sites.
I also dearly appreciate the finer details in automation, like scouts automated to only spy on the enemy, etc.
looking forward to the beta!

Just coincidentaly, I started a "Distant Worlds: Universe" game today and searched the web for some news. What a pleasant surprise to find the successor DW2 has been announced.
By this occasion, I wish to state my sincerest thanks to the developpers! From my perspective, DWU is truly a gem in the rts 4X space game genre.
Being both hyped and happy! :D
