The annual London international festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film, or SCI-FI-LONDON as they are better known, today announced that Master of Orion will be the official games sponsor for this year’s festival.
The festival takes place between April 27 and May 6 2016 in several London venues.
The festival will be showcasing WG Lab’s Master of Orion, a reimagining of the critically acclaimed sci-fi strategy game, originally released in 1993. The title captured the imagination of gamers around the world and spawned the 4X (eXplore, eXploit, eXpand, eXterminate) genre. Its deep, strategic gameplay offers many paths to victory—through force, diplomacy or resource domination. With Master of Orion, Wargaming returns to its science fiction/strategy origins, which began with the company’s acclaimed Massive Assault game series.
“I was a player of the original title and was blown away with this redux; it echoes the changes in game-playing style yet retains the deep immersive joy the game offers,” said Louis Savy festival director. “We are delighted to be showcasing the game at the festival and hope our audience get a taste of just how great this kind of sci-fi game can be.”
“SCI-FI-LONDON is a unique opportunity for us to present Master of Orion to an audience who share our passion,” said Keith Anderson, Director of Marketing & Communications Europe at Wargaming. “A game which invented the pillars of all 4X games, attendees will be able to discover a legend born 25 years ago, redesigned with all the power of today’s technology. We are really delighted and excited to participate at SCI-FI-LONDON.”
