Offworld Trading Company expands with The Europa Wager, a frozen moon with new resources, buildings, and scenarios
From Press Release:
Plymouth, MI. – October 14, 2019 – Today, Stardock and Mohawk Games announced The Europa Wager, the second expansion for Soren Johnson’s economic strategy game, Offworld Trading Company. The all-new addition to the Offworld series will take players to the frozen moon of Europa, where numerous cracks on the surface make building and sustaining new structures a challenge.
Offworld Trading Company is a real-time strategy game in which money, not military force, is the weapon. Stake claims to resources, extract and develop them into goods and upgrades, all while buying and selling in the real-time, player driven marketplace.
“The further out into space we go, the harder survival becomes,” said Soren Johnson, lead designer for Offworld Trading Company. “Europa is completely uncolonized, so at the start of the scenarios you’re faced with surveying the moon, setting it up for life support, and then founding a colony there before you’re able to really start growing your business.”
Some of the highlights in The Europa Wager include:
- New planet: Europa
- New resources: Methane, Magnesium
- New buildings: Methane Extractor, Gas and Hydrothermal Plants
- New scenarios
The Europa Wager’s scenarios provide a host of new challenges to overcome as you try to establish a new colony that will stand against the frozen elements. Like the rest of the Offworld series, the expansion brings real-world elements into its gameplay. For example, although water will not be hard to find on the frozen moon, aluminum is non-existent.
