Maxwell and set the galaxy ablaze with their keyboard, mouse or gamepad!” Erschließung des PC-Marktes an Bord und hoffen, dass die PC-Gamer da draußen richtig heiß darauf sind, die Rolle von Keith T. Maxwell zu übernehmen und die Galaxie mit Gamepad oder Maus und Tastatur in Flammen zu setzen.“
In Galaxy on Fire 2™ Full HD the player will not only be able to explore a vast, living galaxy with more than 20 different star systems, 100 individual space stations and 30 fully customizable space ships, but he will also be able to follow a rich and engrossing story line with full English voice acting. The title’s epic plot centres on the protagonist Keith T. Maxwell’s bold and daring adventures in a war-torn galaxy governed by four different factions, namely the Terrans, the Vossk, the Nivelians and the Midorians. Due to a malfunction of his hyper drive, Keith T. Maxwell is catapulted through space and time. 35 years later, he awakens at the far end of the galaxy, where he soon realizes that quite a lot has changed during his unintentional absence. An aggressive and particularly devious alien menace known as Voids threatens the fragile peace between the different alien races by launching devastating raids on freighters and convoys of all factions. And Keith T. Maxwell is the only one who can stand up to this seemingly invincible enemy and save the universe from its impending descent into chaos. Besides a variety of story-based tasks and missions, the player can also take on an infinite number of freelance missions at any time or try his luck as a collector of achievements. All in all, there is a total of 36 bronze, silver and gold achievements available, all of which can be checked out after the obligatory Steam activation of the boxed version.
