New Sword of the Stars shots

Strategy space sim Sword of the Stars announced today that it would support multiplayer and piled on a heap of screens for good measure. Touted as a 4X space game, the "4X" part refers to the somewhat cheesy marketing line that claims to enable the player to 'eXplore,' 'eXpand,' 'eXploit' and 'eXterminate.' That notwithstanding, multiplayer will make a fine addition to this previously-thought-to-be-single-player battle of interstellar wits.

Featuring four playable races and a random technology tree to keep each race on fairly even footing in the galactic conflict, Sword of the Stars is scheduled to launch this Fall.
