I didn’t particularly enjoy Drox Operative as much I’d have liked, finding the strategic bits at odds with the action-RPG bits, despite loving the overall concept. Lots of people have been enjoying it, and to prove I’m not an egomaniac, here’s a post just for them, about forthcoming expansion,
Defense Invasion of the Ancients:
Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients, the first expansion for Drox Operative, is almost here! Drox Operative is a starship action RPG with warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic, evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer for Windows and Mac.
Before the Drox ruled the galaxy, before they were even sentient, there were older races now known as the Ancients. Using their Operatives, the Drox crushed and enslaved most of these races. The rest fled known space. When the Drox turned on their own Operatives, the Drox were utterly destroyed. Newer races emerged and thrived in the power void, never knowing the menace waited. Seizing their chance, the Ancients are invading to take their rightful place in the galaxy, as rulers! Thirsting for revenge, the Ancients can’t harm the extinct Drox, but they can crush the next best thing, the Drox Operatives.
The expansion is tentatively scheduled for later this year.
