Distant Worlds Catch All

4X game Distant Worlds 2 is the space-strategy epic you never knew you needed

TFA says that they are streaming a gameplay reveal on Twitch today at 1700 UTC.

Also, a not-very-informative trailer.

Gameplay trailer and info isn't happening until next week, so any other trailers are just hype and lore.

And immediately wishlisted.

The stream is making me so...warm...

Oh, it's THIS Tuesday? I thought it was next Tuesday! Crap, running over now!

Edit: http://www.twitch.tv/slitherinegroup

Yeah, 20+ minutes of gameplay! *fans self*

Did they give a date?

"This year definitely." So, basically, 12/31/21.

Hoo, baby!

Wishlisted

Looking forward to it. I imagine it'll be like the first one where it really shines once it gets some love and an expansion or two. Still even when it first came out in enjoyed it. While this looks much more modern and polished.

"Stellaris represents a high-point in space 4X design, but its throne is by no means secure. Distant Worlds 2 is a very credible contender, and we can’t wait to see more."

SHOTS FIRED!

Stellaris is a high-point in sh*t design.

It's a high point in development money spent, probably.

You really are our very own Tom Chick. I guess at least you're not constantly hopping into the Stellaris thread to tell people how sh*tty the game they like is.

Nah, I'm not gonna do that, if folks like Stellaris, they like it.

I can't watch Erik talk over the game. I just can't. He bores me to tears.

That said, Distant Worlds 2: Caslon Simulator confirmed.

It's Erik's camera angle that throws me off. Every time.

You mean as he lords over us peons?

I just don't wanna be that close to his chin.

While going to Steam to look at that Dev Diary, I noticed a Steam forum thread that claimed that Slitherine is targeting a DW2 release date in September or October.

That date originated from this DasTactic interview with Marco Minoli from Slitherine (from June 16). DW2 conversation starts at about 1:02:45 (almost at the end of the interview).

Good to hear it's that soon. Erik always said that they wouldn't give any info until near release, so it was kinda expected, but to have someone bluntly put it that way was refreshing.
