Matrix Games announced today that they will be working with Strategic Studies Group (www.ssg.com.au) to release an updated version of the Reach for the Stars sci-fi strategy game. The original classic was released in 1983, but the new release is an updated version of the second Reach for the Stars release in 2000.
Reach for the Stars is noted to have been one of, if not the first, 4X Space Strategy game. 4X Strategy refers to the four activities you perform, Explore, Expand, Exploit, and Exterminate. The overall game will remain the same as the 2000 release of Reach for the Stars, but with fixes for previous issues reported since then.
David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games said, “Reach For The Stars is and was a classic that we are proud to return to the front line of strategy gamers. The gameplay is still as fun and addictive as always.”
