Space
Empires IV is a massive space strategy game for Windows.

You
control your empire in an ever changing and hostile galaxy.

Design
your starships and use them to explore new solar systems

throughout
the galaxy. Hundreds of different components are

available
to place on your ships, and giant facilities to build

on
your planets. Use fighters, troops, mines, satellites, and

weapon
platforms to supplement your starships. Build your empire

through
research, intelligence operations, politics, treaties,

and
decisively planned strategy. Engage in Tactical or Strategic

Combat,
or use the Combat Simulator. Up to 20 players, human or

computer,
can play against each other with multi-player support

(turn-based
or simultaneous play). Customize the graphics for

your
ships and download updates from our WEB site!

 

Richard
Arnesen, Director of Covert Operations for Shrapnel

Games,
said, "This is a day many fans of the 4X genre have

awaited.
Tremendous progress has been made with the already

strong
game through the extra months that were allotted for

testing.
In less than a month people will be conquering every

conceivable
universe with the superior customization allowed by

Malfador
Machinations’ gaming engine. We are expecting really

big
things with this title!"
