Master of Orion II: Battle of Antares is the classic turn-based strategy sequel in which you can explore and conquer a galaxy. First, pick from one of thirteen playable races or create your own custom race. You then begin with a single planet and must expand from there by researching scientific advances, building fleets of starships, and colonizing distant stars.

You’ll have to adapt to the changing situation, outfitting your ships with the latest technology, and using your wits as you engage in diplomacy, espionage, and warfare for the ultimate battle of galactic supremacy.
