Conquer the Galaxy In This ‘4x’ Strategy Game.
Lead one of 18 different alien races to become a mighty pan-galactic empire. Manage your colonies, deploy your fleets and conduct research. Plot your strategy and turn your planets into mighty bastions. Explore new star systems, where you may encounter tachyon storms, psychic plants, primitives or find abandoned alien technology. Diplomacy is of utter importance in being successful. Make pacts and alliances, make threats or ask for favours - and when the time is right, replace diplomacy by space combat and fight it out in real-time 3D.

The trade system lets you trade valuable commodities between both your own and alien worlds. Alien relics, rare minerals, tourists, or even natural anti-matter, your freighters will carry them all. Although the game is complex, and the possible strategies endless, powerful help and advisor features, help you get up to speed quickly. Unlike many games in this genre, Armada 2526 Gold Edition focuses on providing a game that can be finished in a reasonable time, and emphasizes battle and strategy over economic micro-management. All with one purpose: to emerge victorious and conquer the galaxy with your armada.Key Features

Armada 2526 Gold Edition reviews and comments

Armada 2526 far exceeded my Expectations. As a big Fan of Master of Orion 2 and Imperium Galactica 2, I Think this is the Game that comes closest to the above from all the other 4X Space strategy games currently on the Market. Personally, I think this Game has its own Charm. It is neither too complex nor too superficial. As someone who prefers to start playing immediately instead of completing a tough Tutorial beforehand, I got on well after a few Rounds of Play. This Game leaves free Choice as to whether you prefer to wage war or score points with Diplomacy. I personally think that is great, especially because you have more Decision-making options. You don't necessarily have to wipe out other Breeds. The Game offers:-extensive Diplomatic Options, including an Indication of how my Counterpart is set to me and what Status I have with them-good CI ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥, which unlocks completely new Possibilities during Exploration-18 Breeds + Subfractions in the Gold Edition-many special Characteristics of individual Planets such as alien Relics, special Minerals, Antimatter deposits and much more. With each round finished, you still have something to do somewhere, which is really addictive. A clear Buy recommendation on my part to all Lovers of such Games. Strike When it's in Sale!

You love 4x Games As well as a little Si-fi strategy, but at the same time don't put as much value on Graphics then greif to which this Game does almost everything right. It begins as always Your Choose your Faction or Breed each with partly minimal differentiated but with the same research Tree itself buildings and Ships resemble up to the i-tinp ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ en. But thanks to the different Conditions Of victory, the constant Fun of The game is guaranteed. So, despite the same Green Scaffolding, you never get away with the Same Strategy. Have you chosen a Race (in my opinion, the Florans are the best choice at the beginning). Start in the Galaxy you have chosen with a Planet, 3 Corvettes, 3 Colony ships, 5 Vans, as well as a Scout. Some Of the Solar Systems around one have already been scouted, Others are not. Now you have to build Buildings on your Planet, send out ships or errouse Buildings and the galaxy. Get into a fight you can Opt for Real time or Dice. Gameplay 8/10 The Gameplay seems very thoughtful in my Opinion, which bothers me, however, is that the Breeds all train on the Same Research Tree. As Well as the mother colony ship, it is very much in favour of Research Costs. Sound 4/10 Is nothing Great, but this Problem is what I deal with with mute and Youtube. Graphic 5/10 Detailed Models and also the buildings are very beautiful, everything is made in facet 3D (2D a bit cleverly drawn). Long-term motivation 8/10 I can always resort to this Game as it makes easy laune with the UR trade and to sift peacefully (the Ur are an EXTREM Warrior race and actually hold none of Diplomacy and Trade) Total 7/10
