Wargaming's updated interpretation of Master of Orion is now available on Steam Early Access, as well as GOG's "Games in Development" initiative. After hearing about its expensive-sounding voice cast, we finally have the chance to give the game itself a go.
According to the Early Access FAQ, the plan is to refine the game for at least three months, with no changes in price after its final release.
Early reviews are positive (85 per cent on Steam, 4/5 stars on GOG), so that's a good sign. Hopefully it remains in good shape.
