To do this, expeditions have gone out in search of planets habitable for life. These new planets come with their own unique challenges, from new terrain to unhappy residents, and you have to manage them all. To survive and to find new life amongst the stars, you will have to strategize, build, plan, and put everything you have into this. With so many options, and such a great design, this is going to be an exciting adventure for you.

Your goal in all of this, of course, is to find new life on a new planet. On this new planet, however, you have more than just empty ground waiting for you. You also have local wildlife, relics, and intelligent and dangerous life forms. All of this, and the many other parts of the game, make for a difficult journey ahead of you. If you want to build the massive cities, creating life for your people, then you will have to figure out how to lower the threats to your people, make the most out of available resources, and get everything going in the right direction.
