Distant Worlds: Return of the Shakturi Screenshots


Matrix Games and Code Force have released a pack of a dozen screenshots showing off their upcoming Distant Worlds expansion, Distant Worlds: Return of the Shakturi. The new screenshots showcase some new tech and weapons, including the awesome planet-destroying power of a behemoth Shakturi ship.  A video has also been released on YouTube showcasing some of the combat. 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “The Shakturi are not the type of creatures you want to invite over for the holidays and it’s going to take a clever and skilled space commander to bring them down! Are you up to the challenge?”

The Return of the Shakturi is an expansion to the critically acclaimed 4X space strategy game Distant Worlds. In addition to a long list of new features and improvements, Return of the Shakturi will include two new and unique alien races complete with events that expand upon the original plot of Distant Worlds and move the timeline of the universe forward into its next chapter with exciting new endgame options. A completely new and vastly expanded research system with comprehensive new tech trees awaits, with new tech and options for avid ship designers such as fighters, bombers, missiles, Ion weapons, planetary facilities, regional capitols, and more.


Return of the Shakturi also comes with interface improvements like an Empire Navigation Tool to provide quick access to everything in your empire, Action Buttons for one-click access to common tasks, an Enemy Targets list showing all known enemy threats, Build Orders to mass-produce groups of new ships in one simple step, and much more! All this coupled with new Empire Policies to fine tune the auto-management of your empire, new galaxy shapes, and extended modding support make Return of the Shakturi an essential add-on to the vast, living galaxy of Distant Worlds.

Please note: Distant Worlds – Return of the Shakturi REQUIRES ownership of the original full Distant Worlds game.

Return of the Shakturi is expected to be released before Christmas 2010.
