Lifeforms, the latest and greatest update to OGame, will release on English servers this June.
Are we alone in the universe? It’s one of the biggest unanswered questions of our time. But now, with great confidence and gusto, Gameforge says “No! There is life out there!” The massive, game-changing Lifeforms expansion introduces four species to the OGame universe — Humans, Rock’tal, Mechas, and Kaelesh — that players can use to populate their sprawling galactic empires. Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to resource management, production, and exploration. Building a diverse civilization and combining the abilities of multiple Lifeforms will give players access to countless new strategies, and help them on their path to conquering the universe!
Key Features of the Lifeforms Update include:
• 48 New Buildings — 12 per Lifeform: Players will start with the ability to be a small selection of buildings, but as new species are found and researched, more will become available.
• 72 New Species Technologies — 18 per Lifeform: As players progress through the new content, they will unlock the lifeform-specific tech trees, which can be filled out to further combat, exploration, production abilities, and more, and influenced to branch in any number of ways based on the different species they discover.
• 2 New Resources: New resources, lifeforms, and food, must be balanced carefully. Players must grow lifeforms to unlock species-specific technologies on their planet, but in order to keep the lifeforms on their planets thriving, players need to manage food production. If lifeforms consume too much food, too quickly, they will eventually starve and begin to die out. Unlike food, lifeforms cannot be transported or stolen but can be destroyed when a planet is successfully attacked.
Created by Gameforge CEO Alexander Rösner and originally released on October 3rd, 2002, OGame is one of the space-themed MMO genre’s longest-running games that, to date, has over 100 million registered players worldwide. Everything starts with the foundation of a small colony on an uninhabited planet. Harnessing the resources of this new home, players research new technologies and construct a powerful fleet to carry their authority out into the stars. Players can expand their galactic empires by colonizing planets, forging tactical alliances or by taking on other players. Launch unprecedented expeditions of conquest, subjugate galaxy after galaxy, on a quest to become the most powerful ruler in the universe!
The Lifeforms update will be available to players on English servers on this June. OGame is available for Windows PC via the Gameforge Client in 26 languages.
OGame will become available for Android mobile devices via Google Play and iOS mobile devices via the Apple Store later this year, and players can take part in the beta starting today.
