Drox Operative 2 starship action RPG game launches on Linux and Windows PC. All thanks to more than a year of development by Soldak Entertainment. Which also offers a discount via Steam and GOG. Still upholding the well-deserved 92% Very Positive reviews.

Drox Operative 2 is a starship action RPG with warring alien races. The gameplay also offers fierce space battles, plus a dynamic, evolving galaxy. And not to mention, co-op multiplayer for both Linux and Windows PC.

Eons ago the Drox crushed and enslaved most of the ancient races. While ruling the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were trained to accomplish the impossible, at whatever cost. Whether employing stealth or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox ruled the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their Operatives were a threat. So they attempted to assassinate all of them. They failed. The following Galactic Civil War was so destructive that the Drox are now extinct. The Drox Operative guild, now fully independent, survived. So begins Drox Operative 2.

Newer races emerged and thrived in the power void …for a while. Then the ancients returned. The wars were brutal, but with the Drox Operatives on their side. Now the ancients were beaten back and a truce was established.

Since the devastation, the 4th wave of sentient races is emerging in the galaxy. Drox Operative 2 takes places at a time, unlike previous waves. There are thousands in this one and no one knows anything about them. In the new space race, the ancient, mature, and young races are all scouting. They are even colonizing and expanding. All trying to take over the galaxy through diplomacy, technology, and war. Or any other means necessary.

As a Drox Operative it’s NOT your job to manage an empire. Since you are after all the captain of a single starship. It IS your job to pick the winning side in Drox Operative 2. Maybe even help them conquer the galaxy if you’re being nice. More importantly, though is to rake in as many credits as possible. Well that and build the deadliest ship in the known universe. Who will you back as an Operative? The ancient, mature, or young races? The pacifist or militaristic races? The xenophile or xenophobe races? The races that value freedom or the races that use slave labor? The strong or the weak? Your actions and inactions will impact trillions of alien lives!
