Galaxicus lets you choose your own adventure between MMO and MOBA

So what’s your poison: space MMO or space MOBA? Either way, you’ll find that the up-and-coming Galaxicus wants to sate your interstellar appetite. The game came onto the scene this month and purports to be a space empire building game that can accommodate up to 10,000 players at a time.

The hook here is that players will be able to engage in either a limited or widespread mode. The academy is a two to five-player MOBA-like experience that boasts both PvE and PvP versions, while wars are four-week events where the community dukes it out over five million star citizens. By resetting the board at the end of the month, the devs hope to establish equality of a sort among players.

Then there will be this: “At the conclusion of each year, top winners will be able to fight in the War of the Galaxies, with the top prize — the title of Emperor — going to the last player standing.”

War of the Galaxies, eh? Should probably shorten that down to “Star Wars” or something.

Awesome, thanks for the article about Galaxicus!

We are in Gamma testing – trying to flatten the learning curve.

We are not a Pay to Win game, there are NO speed ups to purchase.

Why reset every four weeks? Try joining a game of Monopoly after everybody has hotels on the board.

Come chat with me in Discord if you have any questions.

A lot of us here play Path of Exile so we get the reset. At least I do.

Wow, a mobile game forced on to the PC. Yay, I’m so excited by this. Darn, I really wish there was a way to express how dry and lifeless I want those to sound. Kind of like that game.

The MOBA-esque combat is the only real PvE. Everything else is inspired by the various ’empire building’ cheap mobile or browser type games. It’s a 4 week PvP focused ‘MMO’ if you will, with a reset at the end of every month for all intents and purposes. Whether it will follow those roots in the Pay to Win category, which is extremely evident in many of those games where the biggest spenders dominate… who knows. There’s simply no details about monetization yet.

I’m going to file this under “Not expecting anything worth more than a moment to ensure it is what I thought once done” and maybe not even give it that moment, given what it appears to be.

Monetization is a good question, we are not sure.

I do know this, the fairness will NEVER be compromised with buyable short cuts.

Visited the site, and I really don’t see a real ‘PvE’ MMO here at all.

Quoting from the site: ” Because competitive PvP is the bedrock upon which Galaxicus is built…”

It does mention some multiplayer, but they talk about a minimum of 2-man teams vs. bots. If that is the extent of their PvE? Certainly not for me.

Ya, sorry we are not a PvE type of game. The PvE is only to practice your skills in a ‘safe’ environment.

Thanks for the clarification. :)

Looks like the article author did not dig deep enough into the game description.

Success and good luck! I wish you well in this project.
