A couple of years ago we cast a quick spotlight on the game Second Galaxy, a mobile MMORPG which styles itself as an open world sci-fi game that combines RPG and simulation elements. As it turns out, that game is coming to more than just iOS and Android, it’s also coming out on Steam this Tuesday, September 10th, and Wednesday, September 11th, respectively.
Second Galaxy has all the expected trappings of a sci-fi internet spaceship sandbox: There’s large-scale battles for as many as 1,000 players, scarce resources to collect, five different nations each with their own unique spacecraft to pilot, real-time trading, and the promise of a butterfly effect depending on how players take on events, all within a self-described hyper-realistic game world that spans 1,000 light years and 4,961 galaxies.
The game’s Facebook page provided a more detailed window for launch, including times of availability based on time zone and region. According to the Steam page, Second Galaxy will be free-to-play with an in-game cash shop.
