Dawn of Andromeda Announced!


We always assumed humanity originated in the Sol system. We were wrong. Dawn of Andromeda, a new 4X RTS by Grey Wolf Entertainment will tell the story of our origin. Published by Iceberg Interactive, Andromeda will come to Steam Early Access in April 2016.

Key Features:

  • Explore, expand, exploit and exterminate in this real-time space strategy game, featuring real-time combat in a dynamic and ever-evolving galaxy.
  • New factions and characters can join the fray mid-game; artefacts, ruins, anomalies and a huge variety of fascinating elements are scattered throughout the galaxy and can yield new research opportunities. Various characters such as outlaws, merchants and others roam the galaxy.
  • Asymmetric gameplay. Not all races discover space travel at the same time, some may have yet to discover it, some may have already built a mighty empire, and some races may be naturally stronger than others. However if you’d rather prefer a traditional 4X experience and start an entirely symmetric game, it’s up to you.
  • Pre-designed, customizable and randomly generated races, each with their unique backgrounds and traits.
  • Accessible gameplay, featuring a highly-intuitive User Interface.
  • Eras; unique scenarios, each with a pre-designed galaxy and background stories which you can play as one of the existing factions, each with their own victory conditions, traits, challenges and ongoing conflicts and relationships.
  • Choose between researching pre-fabricated or randomly generated ship designs, or alternatively research and discover ship parts, allowing you to create your own unique ship designs from them.
  • In depth diplomacy system. Create or join coalitions, make allies and enemies, but beware, each action you take can change how the rest of the galaxy will view you. Destroying an entire planet, or just praising or denouncing another race, can have a deep impact on the balance of the entire galaxy.
  • Reduce micromanagement by appointing governors to your colonies and council members to your empire, all of whom can be leveled up. Each come with their own unique traits, happiness and experience.
  • Multiple, customizable victory conditions, which can even be set to vary for each faction, making for unpredictable friends and foes.

Let’s do some negotiating.

According to Mike Domingues, CEO of Grey Wolf Entertainment – “We have been keeping Dawn of Andromeda under wraps for quite some time and are delighted to now reveal it to the 4x commmunity.” Well, color us surprised. We are looking forward to see what this new entrant to the 4X genre does. It has a lot of competition, but they appear to be up to the task.


Prodigious colonizers.

We are looking forward to giving Andromeda a spin. Stay tuned for future coverage.

  1. It will be nice if unlike most Iceberg Interactive 4X titles more effort goes into actually producing a finished game and less into making a glossy trailer for a shallow game. I am referring to Iceberg specifically which is prone to do this and not Grey Wolf Entertainment.

    • Well i think its a bit harsh given Iceberg also is home to Amplitude with Endless Space and more importantll the amazing Endless Legend.:) . What im saying is sure they publish some weaker games but also some good ones…

      hmm come ot think of it arent you a fan of Armada 2526 ? well its also Iceberg.


    • just looked a bit….this new Grey Wolf Entertainment is also in portugal, just like the old Arkavi Studios wich produced Lords of the Black Sun.

      so, i’ll keep an eye on it but this is no good news i think.


  2. Actually I own at least 10 games published by Iceberg Interactive between Steam and Gog. And it’s still my opinion in general you have to be wary – they make very good promotional trailers but the games do not always measure up and support is lacking or sometimes they simply abandon them. Of course that is just my opinion based on my experience with them.

    Nate / Rob – you should add an edit feature if possible for these comments…

  3. Hey and with some homeworld appearance! A delight. Look forward to more! Give me different “styles” of space travel and you might have a winner! (i love gates!)


  4. looks interesting, the first lets plays will hopefully show more.
    this year all 4x fans realy have a lot of games to choose from :)


  5. Tremendously interesting and visually appealing. The option for asymmetric or symmetric gameplay is a huge selling point for me, as was the game art. But what sold the most was seeing Lisbon as the name of one of the cities. Although for historical reasons, the name “New Lisbon” may rub some people the wrong way. The folks at Grey Wolf will know what I mean.

    I tried to pull up some information about the developers, but it’s been difficult. However I’m in a privileged position to at least give a **very** rough idea of what you may expect, in respect to Bruce concerns.

    They are from Portugal, my country of origin. Portugal doesn’t exactly have a tradition in video game development. However it used to be a strong source of tabletop developers that ended up working on tabletop gaming companies across Europe.

    The interesting part is that they are from Leiria. This town has a long tradition in gaming. Back in the 80s, tabletop and postal mail strategy games where very strong in Portugal. Three major groups appeared centered in the towns of Lisbon, Braga and Leiria. There were others, but less important. Leiria was our constant enemy at the time. I hail from Cascais, 30km from Lisbon, and so I belonged to the Lisbon group. We often battled and Leiria group was considered by us the most difficult of the groups.

    They pretty much dominated the scene and for several times were considered the top players in the country. As the years moved on and online PC gaming became a more common thing, these groups eventually disbanded, but Leiria was always able to retain a sort of community around multiplayer games, even on the PC. Meanwhile some of the best enthusiast computer shops are also in this town.

    There’s a strong gaming bloodline in that town. So, let’s hope they share that and can deliver what looks like a very promising game.


  6. I just remember thinking Lords of the Black Sun was going to be an awesome game, but it was nothing like that. Lets hope it goes better this time.


  7. I bought Lords of the Black Sun on early access, it was a tremendous letdown. I like Iceberg, they have some good games, however I will not be touching this game until I see end user reviews after the game has been out for a while. It would be nice if those of us who got Lords of the Black Sun got this new game to replace it, if it turns out to be playable.
