December 1, 2016 —Master of Orion’s stellar “Revenge of Antares” update has arrived and the galaxy will never be the same. This update gives players access to an iconic, non-playable race and even more content. Ready for purchase is the “Revenge of Antares Race Pack” DLC, bringing three well known and playable races to the already formidable galaxy.
Included in the “Revenge of Antares” update is a non-playable race, the militarized and despotic Antarans. This tyrannical race also brings a new victory condition. Additionally, in the “Revenge of Antares” update, players gain the ability to recruit galactic leaders and encounter independent civilizations as they deepen their experience in Master of Orion.
Alongside this free update comes the “Revenge of Antares Race Pack”, available for purchase. This DLC introduces a trio of familiar and playable alien races: the Trilarians, the Gnolam, and the Elerians—daunting aliens that will bring new dimensions to the battle for Orion. The Elerians, a fierce race of galactic isolationists, make uncompromising foes. The Gnolam are a wealth-driven society, which translates to them being an economically beneficial ally or a financial danger. Finally, the Trilarians are an aquatic race who, despite their commitment to peace, will fight valiantly against any threat.
Master of Orion’ “Revenge of Antares” game update is available today, free of charge.
The “Revenge of Antares Race Pack” is purchasable today for $9.99 via Steam and GoG.com
December 1, 2016 – Wargame: Red Dragon is still alive and well thanks to its amazing community and the support of its developers.

Finland introduces a new unit type: ATV riders, with the FDF Mönkijä, a small & elusive jeep!
