Wargaming announces Master of Orion reboot

A reboot of classic 4X turn-based strategy title Master of Orion is on the way courtesy of new publisher Wargaming.

NGD Studios will develop the game – alongside key members of the original development team, according to the company's announcement.

"Master of Orion is a game that brings Wargaming truly back to its roots, not only as a company but also in how it influenced my personal interest in both games and making them," Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi said.

"The series' iconic gameplay has stood the test of time and working with NGD Studios to bring the series back to life is a truly exciting moment for the team."

While we've made many improvements overall to the game, we're confident that its classic and addictive gameplay will appeal to gamers no matter if they played the game years ago or are now just experiencing it for the very first time,” NGD Studios' co-founder and CEO Andrs Chilkowski added.

The new game features enhanced visuals, revamped UI, new tutorials, fully voiced characters, and an orchestral score. 13 playable races are available, each with their unique advantages, technologies and ship designs.
